Curious no-one remarked on the inspiration of my mission generator!

Oh the memories. My first game back then when I bought my 286 PC in 1991.

I have downloaded v10 of this program but upon running it I cannot see the 3 buttons at the bottom of the screen. My guess is it has something to do with the fact that on my display I use a medium size font because my sight is not good. I am wondering if you can make the window re-sizeable or whatever is required to fix this, thanks

This looks really useful, thanks! On the mission I've just created, my wingmen don't seem to want to begin taxiing until after I've taken off. Is this a known issue, or is there something I can/need to do to get them to start taxiing?

 

Have you given any thought to making this utility open-source and putting it up on GitHub? It might make it easier for tracking issues and gives you the option of accepting contributions from other developers if you deem them appropriate

Small update today. I have been asked to add a scrollbar so users with low resolution screens or when using big fonts can use the utility. I made this work, but not in a reliable way. This has to do with the very simple python UI framework I'm using, but I will not bore you with details. Instead I made changes so that now it is possible to minimize each section by clicking on the icon on the left:

Version 12 release notes:

-Each section can now be minimized by clicking on the icon on the left. This to make the utility usable for smaller resolution screens.
-Fixed minor bugs

 

Please find the download link in the first post.

Be aware: I forgot to set "create_msbin = 1" in the conf.ini. I have corrected this in the zip file, but if you downloaded before this post's timestamp you may want to correct this in the conf.ini file or the utility will not generate proper .msbin and .list files and loading of missions will be very slow.

This is one of the best side programs so far. Congrats! :yahoo:

I am still thinking about how to use it to make a simple and easy Scripted Campaign ...

Could you add a part for that? Is it feasible? A part to write every mission text and a way to bind them together. Maybe even a way to put customized skins already created by the community ...

I apologize in advance if I ask sth not possible because my knowledge of creating software is zero .... but the idea is good, IMHO ;)

Thanks pal :gamer:

Big thumps up Vander !

As some already stated, this lifts coop missions to an easier level!

Much appreciated.

Next collector plane is on me 😉

 

Can you imagine to implement "ship attack" somehow?

However I noticed driving ships in Kuban already.

Thanks! 

Ship attack should already be in there, for the Kuban map. I think you’ll find it under “Escort Bombers” mission.
