About this file

The tool generates all the directories and files needed, including default single color images, to compile a bush mission or landing mission.The input file is one single text file containing waypoint names, coordinates, generic mission data, nav log texts, etc. The input file can be generated by the tool from an existing flight plan (PLN file)! There are many options to use to trigger failures, warnings, play WAV files or TTS and much more.

    I'm having difficulties again, for some reason getting the plan route to show on the map. I deleted the save folders and now using two airports native to the sim. Also text to speech provides new printed text on the start screen but no voice. thanks for any help...

    Hi RHB!! Sure I will help you :). Please share your input file with me in a private message and I will generate and compile the mission myself to investigate the issues. BR, f99mlu

    Yes, I'm able to use the landing challenges built into the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 software. They work perfectly well. What I'm trying to do is to create my own landing challenges. I want to be able to pick an airport and begin my final approach. Then at some point in that approach, I want to stop the simulation and save its coordinates so that I can return to that exact point again anytime I want to, and then continue flying from that point and land the aircraft over and over again for practice. I'm able to do that in the non-VR mode, but not in virtual reality. I'm quite certain it is a bug, but maybe not.

    Well... it seems to be something you might have to discuss on the Microsoft Flight Simulator Forum. Possible file a feature request to Microsoft/Asobo.

    Do you happen to know if this will work when using Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 in VR mode? I'm trying to find a way to practice final approach and landing. I need a way to go back to a saved location and begin from that point. As of now MSFS 2020 is only able to do that in the Non-VR mode and will crash when attempting to do so in Virtual Reality.

    Hi terryleemartin! I am so sorry but I don´t own a VR headset :(. Do you mean that you cannot use the current landing challenges (starting mid-air) to practise your landing? BR, f99mlu

    Hello everyone, I have a simple question. Is it possible to play sound (introSpeech=xxxx) on a landing challenges? I have tried but no sound plays when the challenge starts. Please let me know if that is possible.
    Thank you.

    Hi! Sadly there is no XML file involved in the landing challenges. This means there is no way to trigger speech in any way right now :(.

    I will do some experimenting in the upcoming days! I have an idea I want to try out.

    EDIT: Couldn´t wait to try.. what I did was to create an XML file with only the WorldBase.Flight element and add the usual stuff to trigger speech.. But it didn´t work :(.

    I guess it is because we cannot override the Object file.. it needs to be one of these:
    File=Missions\Asobo\LandingChallenges\default\LandingChallenge_Private
    File=Missions\Asobo\LandingChallenges\default\LandingChallenge_Airliner

    There were sounds in the Halloween landing challenge. Someone capture it and it is in landing challenges here. But not sure if it's captured with sound.

    I don´t understand how it is done in that landing mission. The mission creator somehow bundles the Asobo landing challenge in his own "free flight" addon, having his own FLT and XML/SPB files.. sadly it is not known what he does in his SPB since it can´t be decoded... Maybe ask him about it? :).

    Nope, the author said in the description ,,Sadly, I couldn't add the radio static or the toppled AH." So no solutions here.

    BuffyGC and I are cooperating, not competing. Please edityour comment and let us all be friends. Any mission creator can choose freely which generator he/she prefers.

    Thanks for editing your comment! That was a good gesture :). Cooperation is a new thing for us. I think it is important that we all remain flight sim friends. That is much nicer than being competitors. I have also apologized to BuffyGC for some of the text I wrote. Have a nice day Sandy. I hope you can enjoy both of our tools in the future.

    Thanks to both of you for changing the comments. This is a testament to true greatness. I agree entirely with f99mlu.


    We develop freeware for the community here in our spare time, please don't forget this. Why should f99mlu or I invest a lot of time and effort to find a similar solution? I have always been happy and felt it as appreciation when another great and successful tool like BMG took something from me.


    I think we will coordinate better in the future who is testing and trying to implement something. That way we avoid duplication of effort and both solutions can benefit. We believe this is ultimately better for the community because the effort is reduced and new features are made available faster.

    I'm looking forward to the collaboration.

    problem baby is coming again! when i tried to make an English version, it can't be done. here is the info when compile (generate step is smoothly and show no error)

    Localization file is corrupt: 'D:\******\MFS2020\bushtripdev\taiwan-c-en\output\leanoon-bushtrip-taiwanc-en\source\leanoon-bushtrip-taiwanc-en.loc', err: 'syntax error at line 1343 near: '.

    maybe you will find err: 'syntax error at line 1343 near: '. but my total line is only 113 . i remove all the " and ' to avoid unknown errores, but it still can't be done.
    BMG is 1.52 . the chinese version was already released and work well.counting on you. if you need the xlsx, i can send you to get more analysis.

    Hello f99mlu,

    If the live weather is chosen, after few legs there is problems in the bush mission. If you change the weather it has no effect. If it is the night we are at night and there is no way to change it, the weather has disappear from the custom toolbar and restart do nothing. If you can force the weather to be in the custom toolbar that can be great.

    Another bug that do not impact the fly quality is the call sign which change to the default after few legs too.

    Thanks.

    I think it is hard to blame the tool for this hehe. Seems to be more of an Asobo/Microsoft issue. I bet you will have to edit the SAVE files (FLT) to recover from a bad state. Make sure the weather settings in the files are:

    [Weather]
    UseLiveWeather=True
    WeatherCanBeLive=True

    See also if the call sign is saved properly in the SAVE flt files.

    The more I use the missions and more I see bugs in FS, and they are many. Finally I use custom weather it has more stability. Maybe one day a FS update will fix them.
    Thanks for your time and great job.

    Yeah, live weather does not seem to be a stable feature in the sim right now, using it in missions. I hope they fix that soon!

    Thank you very much! Much appreciated!

    In the input file you change the "plane=" field to the plane you want to use. I look in the aircraft.cfg file in the zip file of the addon and found many variations (DG808S, DG808S Paint1, DG808S Paint2, DG808S Paint3, etc). Try specifying one of them BR, f99mlu

    - The translation seems to not work with xlsx file.
    - The UTF8 encoding of the txt file does not allow to use the russian and create some troubles with some caracters.

    Hello f99mlu,

    There is a mission with interesting functionality here :
    https://secure.simmarket.com/rosig2-bush-trip-weltumrundung-msfs-(fr_14265).phtml
    - gas stations at the airports are working
    - ATC panel
    If you can add them to BushMissionGen it's great.
    Thanks for your great job.

    Hi Proph! I experimented with the ATC stuff but couldn´t get it to work.. seems to need exact configuration of radios and stuff. Can you please investigate it some more and see how it could be done in a generic way?

    New version released with some refueling enabled (enableRefueling=True).
