Hello everybody,
I have created a mission and would be happy about feedback and discussion! Here is the link:

Nice mission!

I'm not quite sure in which universe a train heist would be initiated from an aircraft carrier, but it was certainly fun to fly.

First remark: when the chopper reaches the coast, the text says to follow the tracks to the east. Those tracks are headed much more to the south than to the east, so maybe "south-east" or really just "south" would probably work better.

Second item: A text in German snuck into the otherwise English texts.


Third item: I don't know why I failed at that point. A little heads-up would have been nice. Also, a screw might be looser than another, but I guess you meant "loser".


Fourth item: Some text seems to appear twice in a row.


Finally, when I landed at the carrier (near the front of the ship, where we took off) there was no message. Would be nice to get a little "Well done" or so.

All in all, it's a fun mission, good length, and who doesn't like to do the occasional train heist?

Hi,
Thank you very much for the detailed feedback. I'm glad you like it. I fixed the bugs and uploaded a new version.

Yeah, the new version looks good!

The sentence "Now go up a bit and follow the train" still appears twice in the same text.

Unfortunately, I couldn't test the landing part. There was this stupid lamp pole interfering with my helicopter. And then velocity and solid objects rolled the dice and Newton prevailed. In other words: I was too low and crashed into the damn thing before I could land at the carrier, completely my fault.

Fun mission, keep'em coming!

"I'm not quite sure in which universe a train heist would be initiated from an aircraft carrier"


Answer : the Hollywood one. It would be conducted by the A- team perhaps, with Murdoch as the Pilot ?

That sounds plausible indeed! But only as long as Murdoch is played by Dwight Schulz!
(Haven't watched the remake yet, don't intend to.)

Unlike the A-team, this is fictitious. We should call it B-team

Awesome! Just tried it. It's a bit strange getting instructions from yourself!
