Missions in FSX
As everyone who flies missions knows, FSX has brought a multitude for situations that are intriguing, educational and present some new aspects about flying that could never be discovered by just experiences in the real world. For example even seasoned flat-lander pilots can learn from flying in the mountains, a soar plane, a helicopter, and much more.
From the simplicity of fling the Trike, to more challenging situations in soaring, and even on to the more complexities of flying helicopters in windy conditions, just as some for incidences.
Also, if you enjoy fling missions you've probably discovered that even when many of the missions are completed and the success window pops up, most missions can be continued and more discoveries can be made.
At first, I for one flew most of the missions just to complete them. Once I completed all but three for four, I've been flying them to completion and then go exploring from there. It's like reconditioning an old automobile, or rediscovering something that was fun at first, but you've long forgotten. Also, as you mission enthusiasts probably know, there's more dialog left from the co-pilot. It's pretty cool.
Here's my latest dilemma: The Hawaiian Checkout takes you from Molokai airport to Hanna in Maui. When you land at Hanna you get the success window, however, if you notice the flight plan is still active. Here's my problem as it stands now. After taking off from Hanna, the next way point is Molokai cliff 1718'.When I get there, there's nothing to do. I just keep buzzing Molokai cliff, and can't seem to find the solution. I've checked here by searching in the message boards and have come up with zero.
I have some questions that might bring some more renewed interest by others:
1. Has anyone been here and done the Hawaiian Checkout mission and continued on?
(PS: If you have, you don't need to tell me the solution, I'd just be content knowing there is one).
2. Has anyone else discovered some very interesting things when continuing after the missions?
3. What sort of things have you discovered from continuing after the mission was completed?
Perhaps we don't even want to say what we've discovered when continuing missions, because this very thread could intrigue others to fly them again and make new discoveries for themselves.
As example, the very first mission, is a simple takeoff and landing. There's more to it if you continue on.
That's all I'm saying.
