Beebop's Jungle Adventures - the campaign
« on: October 10, 2021, 02:08:52 AM »

A couple of years ago Beebop created a series of Missions around a jungle pilot and his predicaments.

I converted the missions to be playable in BAT and with the approval of Beebop, release them now in a collected campaign mode!




Select country "None".
Set "No Instant Success" to OFF




As bonus, I took this one small step further to contain two Easter eggs which you can find when you have Whistler's fun NG-PAL mod. In two missions you may explore the scenery to find some food for your imagination...

Thanks for bringing Beebop's Jungle Adventures to BAT. Storyline campaigns/missions are a really enjoyable and creative contribution to this sim.

Having flown the first three missions so far, the P-5 is a good choice as a clapped-out old biplane living out its last days in the wilds of Indonesia. That first mission, flown blind in zero visibility across those mountains was a real white-knuckle ride! Very easy to lose spatial awareness, relying almost entirely on the compass not only for direction but for orientation to keep the wings near level. Most of the time I was anticipating flying into rising terrain! Almost as terrifying as being there!  :)

The third mission was a real challenge -- gaining enough altitude to get over and through those mountain passes and ridges takes a great deal of patience, nursing the engine to avoid overheating it and blowing a gasket. There wasn't much choice of somewhere to land in an emergency in that terrain! Having barely scraping over the second ridge, after eventually landing I'd swear Sparky was dragging branches and leaves, and what looked like a monkey's tail, out of the undercarriage!

A cracking challenge so far. Onwards and upwards to the next mission!
