The missions editor is definitely great to have! I have started adjusting the altitudes of my own flight to stay at higher altitude for most of the flight. It has been great help in surviving the "Nieuport scourge" of early 1916 Belgian coast biggrin

I still hope that mission generation factors like the balloon protection base/default altitude and what I suspect is some kind of interpolation "curve" for waypoint altitudes relative to the peak altitude (which I imagine is some kind of mission type specific default/base value) could be adjusted with existing values without rewriting the code.
