Quick question http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . When it says "mission complete" after doing the objective, i will go and land the plane.. After doing so how do i finish the completed mission to go onto the next?.. Ive flicked through the manual but couldnt find anything. I end up just pressing ESC then quit to do another Career option.. Help! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Hi Ripper

When you are finished with the mission hitting ESC and clicking on 'Quit Mission' should take you to the mission debrief screen - if you have completed the mission there should be an 'Apply' button visible.
Hitting the 'Apply' will take you to the next mission briefing.

There is a way to avoid the need for the 'Mission Complete' message. When you start a campaign go into the difficulty settings (they can only be set now - once you generate the campaign these settings are fixed) - on the second page there is an option named 'no instant success' make sure this is turned 'off' (not lighted).
Now when you play a mission you can quit anytime you like and still move onto the next one.
I use that setting all the time and feel its actually more "realistic". If I head out on a bombing mission, get bounced half way there, jettison the bombs, and fight my way home making a desperate wheels up landing - I still get credit for what happened in the mission (even though the target was not hit). With 'no instant success' turned on I would have to fly the same mission over and over until it was completed properly - each unsuccessful try would never have happened as far as the log would show.

WOW!! You learn something new on these boards every day! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I have avoided playing with the pilot career offline because I hated that "feature" of having to successfully complete every mission before moving on to the next one. Thanks Athosd!
