A mission is a structured flight with a starting point, a set of tasks to complete, and one or more goals to try to achieve. Missions can be single or multiplayer. Many missions are tutorials, although the system is very flexible and can encompass many different types of activities. This SDK component describes how to build missions and then include them in the Missions menu.
- How to load a mission: Start the sim, from the menu bar select Flights >> Load and you get the Load Flight screen where you can select either Emergency, My Saved Flights or a Tutorial
- Where are the missions/flights stored inP3D?
a. My Saved Flights: C:/Users/Jan/Documents/Prepar3D Files
b. Your missions in F:/Prepar3D14/missions
c. The Default Prepar3D flight, on the runway, in Norfolk, VA: in: F:/Prepar3D14/flights/other
- Having that clear, you might want to import (cut/paste) some of your favorite missions from FSX. There are some restrictions in using missions from FSX, because not always the aircraft used in the FSX mission is “active” in P3D. So remind this.
- Step 1: go to FSX Missions folder (e.g. F:/FSX/Missions/Emergency) and select the folder F:/FSX/Missions/Emergency/Triangle; copy this folder
Step 2: go to P3D folder F:/Prepar3D14/missions/Emergency and paste the folder into it. DoneNow, since the Learjet45 (with which aircraft the mission is flown) is not fully installed, you need a panel and sound from the FSX installation. Read my other post how to fix this.
- After pasting you will find the Triangle mission in Load Flight overview.
- Select the mission and you will get the briefing screen.
- Ok and the mission will start. Have fun and save landings.
- Tip: the compass rose is activated by the U-key (if programmed).
