Specify mission date on Mission Editor?

Hello everyone,

 

This is a pretty trivial thing, but still, I'm creating a mission and I would like to know if there is any option to set up the day/month/year in which a custom mission happens. In the A-10 CDU, under the TIME page you can see the date and it's always September 2011. I haven't found any option in the mission editor that allows me to specify the mission date. Does anybody know if it's possible to do it?

 

Thanks

In the mission editor where you can specify the start time, there's another box right of the entry for minutes. That's how many days from a pre-set date in the sim, I can't remember what date the 0-date is, I know someone posted it before. Basically you just have to set how many days from the 0-date ahead you want.

 

AFAIK the next patch will have a simpler system.

I thought as of 1.2.3 they are called vaporware...

 

/hides :pilotfly:

 

3 months == vaporware now? Jeez Episode 3 must be like Ultra-mega Vaporware then. :cry:

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

The new ME interface is much better, I can easily set-up day and month. However still no option to set the year though :huh: Maybe there's a way to edit the mission file itself and input the desired year? I'm trying to create missions based on real life operations, date isn't really necessary but it would be a nice touch to see it in the briefing and the CDU :)
