About

*** REQUIRES JAVA RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT VERSION 15 OR NEWER ***

The tool generates all the directories and files needed, including default single color images, to compile a bush mission, landing challenge or discovery flight. Supply your own Bing Maps or Goole Maps API key and you will get nicer images! The input file is a single text or XLSX file containing waypoint names, coordinates, generic mission data, nav log texts, etc. It can be generated by the tool from an existing flight plan (PLN file exported from Little Navmap) or from a sample file. Waypoints can also be read from a Little Navmap file (.LNMPLN) where navlog texts are present in the comments. There are many options to use to trigger failures, warnings, play WAV files or TTS and much more. Now even airport/runway creation is included! See the manual for information about how to use BMG and all its possibilites.

Please contribute by sending bug reports and feature requests. BMG is totally free to use and no registration is necessary! But if you want to donate money, buy me a couple of beers or even give me a copy of your creation would be highly appreciated and motivating. Especially if you create successful payware. Look for the PayPal link or use a Revolut transfer (revolut.me/f99mlu).

Merry Christmas everyone!!

I'm sure this is a good tool, if you are very familiar with Java. If you don't speak Java, like me, it will likely be very frustrating.

Great tool! How do I get the BMG to show taxi ribbon. I have included command in the "all" and enableTaxiRibbon, but still the ribbon fails to show up. Is this an issue with MSFS?

Again. Thanks for the great work!

Hi f99mlu. I'm already getting pretty familiar with your awesome tool and my glider landing challenge is progressing steadily. However, I do have a few questions and am bold enough to ask 4 at once.

1: Is it true that the leader board does not work after the challenge has been assessed?

2: I am trying to use the function "multi-plane project" and have entered plane=AS-33me|-LS4 for the parameter. However, only a challenge is created for the AS-33me. How should I deal with this?

3: Is it possible to move the landing area (blue square symbol) to another place on the runway? I've been experimenting with the coordinates of the last line but that doesn't seem to work.

4: Can I place multiple photos at the briefing. Like a Bush trip?

I hope you don't mind me asking 4 questions right away.....

Thank you very much.

Fer

Finally I have BushMissionGen working! Thank you for your support.

I followed the instructions of the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jz66u-KNq8&t=316s and after "Generate" I get the error message:

The fields

latitude=

longtitude=

altitude=

should be set to the same values ​​as you first waypoint (CUST0) to avoid any issues and error messages in the sim.

I filled in the last lines as follows (just like in the video):

#icao rw name type LL alt

||CUST0|U|N52° 28' 20.37",E6° 18' 2.32"|+000411.05

||CUST1|U|N52° 28' 20.37",E6° 18' 2.32"|+000411.05

||CUST2|U|N52° 28' 21.12",E6° 20' 55.66"|+000303.76

||CUST3|U|N52° 28' 3.76",E6° 20' 56.44"|+000208.23

EHDS|27|EHDS|A|N52° 28' 4.53",E6° 19' 58.21"|+000013.00

After compile I get the same error again.

After completing the procedure, all files will be present just like in the video.

Unfortunately, my Landing Challenge is not visible in the sim.....

Where can it go wrong in my method?

Thnx, Fer

Hi, here's my input file, which compiles, but gives an error in MSFS2020 when loading it:

The error is:

syntax error on line 47 of aybb-aytr.loc:

Works like a charm! Thank you 😊

Do you get "Provided project definition file doesn't exist" when compiling? Then make sure you have no spaces in the complete path to your project.

Example:

C:\my projects\landing-challenge-frankfurt\output\lch-frankfurt-hard

The space in "my projects" will break it.. remove the space(s) and it should work.

I would just like to say a BIG THANK YOU to f99mlu for the much appreciated time he has spent this evening with me going through my problems

Great Guy Great Program - Paul x

just started using your fantastic program and within two days of never ever doing anything like this posted four challenges for others to try but unfortunately I have had to do a harddrive swop and now since upgrading to latest version I keep getting an error every time I try to compile its says the package file doesn't exist here's a screen shot any help would be greatly appreciated

provided project definition file does not exist

? false returned by Command=buildAssetPackages Comment=Build the asset packages. NbParam=15 Line= BuildAssetPackages

C:\Users\PaulD\onedrive\Documents\Little Navmap Files\Flight Plans \output\ test-india

C:\UsersPaulD\Onedrive\Documents\Little Navmap Files\Flight Plans\output\test-india CheckOutputTimestamp UsePause

I presume a file is missing somewhere

Thanks Paul x

Use non modded SDK with latest BMG! No more fspackagetool patching should be needed.

Hi I constantly get

Provided project definitian fie does not exist---using the latest version. does not compile at all...really incredible in older versions all went well. can you tell me how to fix this?

Hi, thanks for the very nice tool! I am struggling with the sdkpath:

Escaping the colon (as it is about java properties?) is done like that:

C\:\<rest of the path>?

Because even doing that, I get the "Compiler not found on any drive"-error.

I have installed the SDK in this path:

C:\Data\Tools\FS_SDKs\MSFS2020SDK\MSFS2020_SDK_0.17\Tools\bin

And this is my full row in the inputfile:

sdkPath=C\:\Data\Tools\FS_SDKs\MSFS2020SDK\MSFS2020_SDK_0.17\Tools\bin\fspackagetool.exe

I am using V3.20

I was able to create one landing challenge, however, for the next 3 I created, I get an error when I try to start the challenge in MSFS that says "You have left the activity area". How can fix this error?

Re the 0 deg West bug, haven't tested the Landmarks yet but the CUST waypoints work OK.

However the line longitude=-0.5446978500703888

in the text file unfortunately generates

Longitude=E0° 32' 40.91"

in the FLT file rather than W0° 32' 40.91" 😞

Is custom audio supported for this program?




Roadmap
These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
Backlog
Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.

  • Version 4.11 January 19, 2023

    - New field to be able to disable refueling on each leg for bush trips (autoRefuel=[True/False]).

  • Version 4.10 October 31, 2022

    - Handle the latest SDK which requires that .LOC files are located in a "localization" folder.

    Kept the older version (v4.09) available for download for content creators who used an older MSFS SDK.

  • Version 4.09 September 14, 2022

    - Fix for Discovery flights regarding the generated marketplace data.

  • Version 4.08 June 29, 2022

    - Added the field "mainLanguage=" to be able to set the project´s main language (default = en-US).
    - Encoding fix for the HTML preview file.
    - Simplified handling of comments for LNMPLN files. Leg texts are no longer read out, only subleg texts.

  • Version 4.07 May 29, 2022

    Blocks! A new way of adding big chunks of configurations to the FLT file. Right now there are four different blocks to use:

    MAIN_ADDITIONS adds data to the [Main] section.
    AVIONICS adds an [AVIONICS] section.
    ATC_AIRCRAFT replaces the [ATC_Aircraft.0] section.
    PLANE_SPECIFICS replaces all plane specific sections like [Engine Parameters.X.0], [FuelSystem.X], [Gauges.X], etc.

    See the manual for examples!

  • Version 4.06 May 27, 2022

    - Added the field "objectFile=" to be able to add several object files to a landing challenge.
    [objectFile=file:{file} coordinate:{coordinate} altitude:{altitude} pitch:{pitch} bank:{bank} heading:{heading}]
    - Added the field "pVelBodyAxis=" to set the pitch axis velocity.
    - Added the field "bVelBodyAxis=" to set the bank axis velocity.
    - Added the field "hVelBodyAxis=" to set the heading axis velocity.
    - Added the field "xVelBodyAxis=" to set the x axis velocity.
    - Added the field "yVelBodyAxis=" to set the y axis velocity.
    - Added the field "zVelBodyAxis=" to set the z axis velocity (same as "velocity=").
