Hello again,

I'm wanting to assign A/C to a ferry mission and then once the a/c land at the base to be reassigned to another mission such as an air intercept. How can this be written into a Lua script?

Thanks again for those that help. My Tandy TRS-80 experience in 9th grade does absolutely nothing to help me here.

Steve

do you have to do the ferry mission in lua or can you set it up manually and then just change the mission in lua?

the hard part is probably how to know when to change the mission - I usually do it at a certain time when I know they will have arrived at the new base.

I use the remains in trigger with a mission assign lua action.

For instance I have a squadron ferried from the US to Norway. I create an area on a side the player can’t see around the airbase. Then I set a trigger that those aircraft remain in the area for 30 mins to ensure everyone landed. Then I do a mission assignment as my lua action.

I did encounter a weird bug that if you set the ferry to one way the aircraft would not take off on the new mission so set your ferry to continuous.

I'll have to give that a shot. Thank you.

I've used this in the past, if you're ferrying multiple units i.e. a Squadron be sure to tag the trigger on the last AC in the squadron
