Mission Generator

A plugin for X-Plane


Fifteenth Patch (v1.5.2/v1.5.3)

2021-12-08

This patch fixes an issue where urgent missions would not award bonus points on completion.

Additionally, a very rare random number glitch could lead to multiple missions with the same internal mission ID. Accepting one of them would activate both missions. This is fixed as well.

The original release of v1.5.2 shipped with a bug that could lead to crashes on Windows with NVidia graphics. v1.5.3 fixed this issue.

Fourteenth Patch (v1.5.1)

2021-01-13

A recent change in X-Plane's scenery database added airports without ICAO codes, and airports with multiple codes. These airports caused the Mission Generator to not display a mission list, or show an incomplete mission briefing without an [accept] button.

With the gracious help of forum user Gary Hensley, this patch fixes these issues.

Thirteenth Patch (v1.5.0)

2020-07-30

Some users who were flying bush planes and liked to practice short-field landings and takeoffs, sometimes encountered a bug where the Mission Generator wasn't able to tell which runway they used. This resulted in an [unknown airport] in the takeoff or landing statistic in the debriefing. With the gracious help of the forum users petrivka and pa4tim, this problem could finally be fixed.

Secondly, this update brings VR support out of beta. The VR/XP11 version is now just as beautiful as the legacy XP10 version, but with better window management and VR support. I would now recommend all XP11 users to upgrade to the XP11 version.

Twelvth Patch (v1.4.0)

2020-04-19

This patch is a big one: BETA VR support!

The Mission Generator is now available in two versions: One compatible with XP10 and XP11, looking and behaving just as it always has. And a new, XP11-only version, that is VR compatible. The VR version is still a beta version, and not as pretty as the old version: It uses XP11's new and shiny floating windows that can be popped out of XP11's main window, and positioned on VR. The downside is, these windows currently draw a rather big and ugly border around the Mission Generator's windows. That's why it's still a beta version.

But you can now fly missions entirely in VR!

Also, this version fixes a bug that would sometimes corrupt the pilot profile with NaN experience points. This should not happen again.

Eleventh Patch (v1.3.4)

2020-01-26

The Mission Generator's bug tracker has been very quiet in the last few months. But very occasionally, the mission list would not pop up for a small number of users, and the log would show an error message saying attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'lon1' (a nil value). But none of my computers would ever show this message, so I couldn't investigate it.

However, things changed when forum user Luke173 worked with me for several weeks to investigate the issue as it was happening on his computer. And with his help, we finally found a solution: On some installations on macOS, the last entry in the landmarks database could not be read, which lead to an error whenever a sightseeing bonus mission was generated.

Today's patch fixes this issue. Many thanks to Luke173 for his help!
