Information on Instant Mission Maker
Instant Mission Maker is an easy to use tool for making Flight Simulator X missions. It allows designing a wide range of missions using a very intuitive GUI and offers live preview and editing of many mission objects directly in FSX. And if you would rather be flying, the built-in random mission wizard can instantly generate random missions sending you on various assignments in all corners of the world.
To use Instant Mission Maker, you don't have to know anything about making missions. No need to write XML, copy files around or deal with cryptic names and numbers. You just build the mission step by step and describe what should happen, like writing a movie script. Instant Mission Maker offers a wide selection of easy to use building blocks for the mission. You can add voice prompts, require the user to perform certain actions in order to proceed with the mission, create and control AI aircraft, ground vehicles, static and mobile scenery objects, trigger equipment failures and add many other elements. Instant Mission Maker does not require the mission SDK and can be used with both FSX standard and deluxe editions.
The FSX mission system allows creating a wide range of interactive experiences. You can make classic missions requiring the user to perform various tasks, or you can just use it to add interactive elements to your airport, like a follow me vehicle that waits for you, or a couple of AI aircraft performing touch and goes. The easiest way to do all this is by using Instant Mission Maker.
The random mission wizard allows instantly generating random missions with various assignments like air taxi, sightseeing, formation, cargo drop flights. You can open the generated mission for further editing, or immediately save it and launch in FSX in order not to spoil the experience.
Flying random missions is a great way to see new places and experience new airports in FSX while performing meaningful tasks.
