What missions do you want?

Recommended Posts

Let's just assume MSFS will have missions, what would you like to see?

Standard ones? Original ones?

Keep in mind the new sim will be photorealistic worldwide so you can imagine missions in a particular location which would fit perfectly.

Who knows, maybe yours will appear in the final product!

Personally,  I would love some fire fighter missions with Canadair planes

I'm less concerned with missions per say.  I just want FS2020 to support Simconnect so Flight Sim Economy (FSE) can work with it.  Then I'll have all the missions and reasons I need to keep me flying in the new sim for decades to come!

Firefighting, sling loading, hoist operations, medical evacuation.

Pretty much everything a helicopter can do. And boy, they can do A LOT.

I want a default hang glider and to get a running start on top of a mountain to which you must make your way down to the grass landing field in the valley below!

What missions do I want? Well, I liked Innsbruck Approach, Resort Supply, Quito Approach,  Carrier Landing IMC. Secret Shuttle, Carrier Practice, Monsoon, High Altitude Intercept, Dutch Harbor Approach, Rocket Launch Air Cover. Anything even "similar", but with a whole new sim(MSFS) would be awesome to me. :smile:

Thanks,

Mike

I hope the missions SDK will get more love from devs. I feel like beyond the awesome ones in FSX there were very few additional products. 

In any case I do hope for some more mission. I did enjoy the ones where you are a commercial pilot in a small aircraft delivering stuff and all kinds of things happening throughout it. I think the high audio quality of the original fsx missions made them a lot more immersive than other missions I've played.

Almost any or all missions from FSX type, of course updated with the hopefully brand new code base. And a great GUI mission creator tool and an area  ( FSW called it Workshop on Steam ) for users to upload them for other members to fly. FSW had the right idea in this area, as users were constantly uploading missions, some crappy, some good, and some great. If the community can make missions as well as MFS provide some in the sim, we can fly mission's forever if their is such a tool and area to upload them.

That would be nice. GUI Mission Creation tool please MSFS, and an easy area to upload them and be flown by other simmers!

- Car chasing with an helicopter in a city between skyscrapers!

- in-flight refueling heli or aircraft via A400M or similar

- military style landing in a hot area without any light, only infra red binoculars

Personally I would like to see a mission where you are tasked with delivering urgent supplies to the true north Pole from Yellowknife. This has to be in a DC3 with all steam gauges with no autopilot.

Exactly the kind of flights I'm currently doing!

Yellowknife to the true north pole is 1658 nautical miles.  The DC-3 is good for about 1500.  You'd really be stretching it.

How about flying to T-3 Ice Island instead?  To make things even more fun, the island moves around. 😄

You would just need to load an extended range tank. 😁

Actually, you could probably do it on normal tanks, but you'd be landing on fumes if you made it.  My longest flight was 1540 nm and I landed with 60 gallons remaining and was using 75 gallons per hour.  Hey, all part of the mission, right? 😄

A personal pilot avatar that is you in the game.

I hope there will be a a reward system for exploring the open world (like in FSX) where you get badges or trophies for visiting certain places.

I'd also like "hidden" open world missions that you only can get access to by visiting certain airports. 

A career mode with things to do as a passenger or cargo pilot with a simple system/logbook to track your career and achievements.

I love missions. Did all that were available in FSX/Flight/DTGFS and 80% of that user created ones. Also did around 20-30 by myself.

But for the long term something like Flights jobboard or aerocaches would be great. That was really a long term attraction. Maybe something similar to FSEconomy too?

Just gimme Weekly aerocaches to interesting spots. Enable 3rd Party devs to include aerocaches to their scenery addons would be great

I would love to see random jobs that occur in the real world and that give us something to do on a daily base think about:

  • Dragging banners and towing sail planes
  • Crop dusting and cherry drying with a helicopter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBe9GEhc7pE)
  • Supplying remote and/or hard to reach locations in mountainous areas 
  • Transporting things like cargo and passengers (to and from random locations and with all types of aircraft)
  • Search and rescue operations both over land and sea
  • Medical evacuations and medical flights 
  • Patrol missions (maybe coast guard patrols or military patrols)
  • Aerial photography flights (of cities, specific buildings, a mountain, clouds, etc)
  • Tour flights and VIP transports
  • Dropping parachutists and cargo droppings
  • Taking an aircraft to a maintenance location or bringing it in from the manufacturer

Personally I would love to see these jobs tied into an advanced career mode (like I mentioned before in more detail in another topic), but they can also stand on their own easily. 

But I would also like to see more game-like missions and challenges. More of these should be added over time, maybe on a weekly base. I'm thinking about:

  • Aerocaches and treasure hunts 
  • Try to land on a carrier (fighter jet) or cruise ship/oil platform (helicopter) with different difficulty levels (fair weather, windy conditions where the ship rocks)
  • Land a big airplane (747?) on a runway that is just long enough for it with different difficulty levels (fair weather, crosswind, stormy, in icy conditions, in low visibility)
  • Do some formation flying for an air show while being guided by the wing leader 
  • A day at the beach (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYexLE6Z7HM&t=653s)

Not a mission as such but I hope that the new sim will offer sceneries or will allow third parties to offer sceneries that are fertile grounds for generating home made challenging missions like the OrbX PNG sceneries are. 

PNG (and Papua), Alaska of course but also strips in the Amazon basin, Borneo or Patagonia !
