Unable to select a mission to fly in TE Editor
I am new here and probably still have much to learn. I am of the strategic planning sort. I like to build mini campaigns. I usually do six hour increments of scheduling for each squadron to allow for fragging packages if the situation calls for it. So let’s say I scedule the 35th out of Kunsan for six one hour two ship BARCAPS scheduled in a manner so as one CAP goes off station the relief CAP is coming on station. I select to fly the first mission. I fly it. RTB when the relief CAP comes on station. Land. When I go to select the next available mission, select takeoff at a ramp start, I get put into whatever mission is further along in its mission. It may not even be the same squadron or even an F16. I even wound up flying a tanker….with an f16 cockpit. So I am unable to fly the mission I select to fly. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong. I was able to build campaigns in allied force without this problem…only there I was often kicked out of missions running late due to traffic jams, which is unavoidable in combat due to constant fragging…to account for combat losses or changes in the FLOT situation…

To join the flight, you need to click the flight you want in the tasking window on the left, THEN you need to click on one of the F-16s below it - and then your name should show up below the plane.
The click commit!

This will be a good read for you: https://www.benchmarksims.org/forum/showthread.php?6444-Falcon-AF-to-FBMS-Conversion-Guide
When I select a flight, my name is already on the Lead 1. I’ll try clicking on the specific aircraft. Thanks.
Snail, Thanks for the guide links. Looks like good reading. I’ll dig into it deeper. I’ve been in AF for a while. Loved it…except when it boots me out of missions running behind wheels up time. I recently stumbled upon BMS. Now I’m hooked on the finite realism. Great flight model, especially when landing. Very soft. Even in bad weather. AF landings always seem to slam the plane down.
