Great! Looks like there is a new .exe file to launch the Mission Editor, as opposed to running the .jar file?

You can launch ME with *.exe file as well as *.jar file. The choice is yours wink .
But seriously, the exe file is included to allow creation of ME shortcut on Windows desktop.

I figured that might be why you added the .exe file. This makes it much easier to pin to the Windows taskbar ... Thanks!!

Mission Editor v 1.8.1 released. Download available here .
Revision changes:
1) Reworked and more randomized ambush conditions and situation
2) New feature added - culling planes/formations that are beyond selected distance from player. Distance is selectable by slider. Idea by HarryH to eliminate processor workload by removing aircraft that are out of active area (especially in later time of war).
3) Small bugfixes

Enjoy!

JJJ, a couple of small things: it seems that by default you most always have planes cut from missions, even with distance at 50...

I've had one instance of a mission failing to start because one flight had lost it's escort mission (presumably it had been culled by your ME). Might be tricky to solve?

Overall though, this is so helpful for late war missions!

I forgot to mention - setting culling distance to 0 disables culling.
Regarding escort and escorted missions - I hoped that both, escort and escortee will be culled, but, as you found, that is not true. I will have to recode the culling filter in respect to waypoint types. Thx for pointing that out.

On 2) above why not just click a setting lighter on the campaign setting in workshop?
Regional Air Activity setting in Worskhop.

It's optimized to produce less of a range (smaller regional activity) circle of operations so scales automatically based on many complicated factors (there are many, one example is 'are there enough squads in the region etc to produce a war') it doesn't break escorts or other missions, and will reduce flights and also the numbers in the flights too to help with CPU load.

In future, we will likely add a visual indicator - circles to show the already-built-in regional activity and operational area controls where AI is active. Also we have more than 1 circle in use for various reasons.

On long range missions, for example Gotha raids, you also need to cope with the fact you may be flying to another country to fight - so culling flights based on a small circle will kill that campaign mission type.

There is also always a chance you will be ambushed so not sure why you need to add more, there are real flights on patrol not "spawned",
Heavier activity will give more chance of seeing enemies or being ambushed of course.

ME's Plane culling feature does not cull planes around player in small circle. In fact, it creates polygon copying player's flight path in choosen distance (how it say in English - equidistant?).

Mission Editor 1.8.2 should already solve that problem and does not break any mission. Available below for download.
