Another AI request (missions)

Recommended Posts

Hi,It would be cool if we could define the flight path of an AI mission and give it actions. For instance, have a plane which takes off from an airport, does a circling climb to 13,000 ft, spits out some skydivers at a particular location, or a random location within a specified set of coordinates, and then lands again at the same airport to pick up another load and do it again. And be able to define the times and dates that it performs these operations. There are lots more things that could be done like this, like firefighting operations, line checking (or whatever it is called), stuff like that.Can this (the parachute thing) be done today?Can you modify the ATIS at a local airport, to include things like a warning of parachuting in a particular area?Can this change in the ATIS be triggered by an event, like the time the AI mission described above is active?Thanks,Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com/FC_StartJava.html] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)

Gee maybe they could start in AI by moving the departureAirport to where it should be, instead of at the end of the line/string of the flight plan.

If we had an option to provide more detailed flightplans for AI, like using waypoints instead of just great circles, many comprehensive AI missions could be possible. For starters, victor airways would finally make sense. Transoceanic routes would be more realistic, and of course, custom missions like firefighting, S&R, etc will become possible.Cheers,=S.V.=
