Same principle. This is a tool to extract the game data and put it on external screens.
Here is a recompiled version of MFD Extrator that will work better with Falcon BMS 4.35:
Note: The MFD extraction might not work but you can use the MFD RTT Tool provided with BMS (in tools folder)

This tool will help to give you a different view of the battlefield with focused view on the flights operating in the theater. It will also give you the opportunity to edit the weather of your mission easily with random generator.

Mission Edition Tools
This is probably the best and most difficult tool to master in Falcon BMS.
As for Falcon, the learning curve is steep and manual is… non existent…
It will be able to help you modify a campaign or TE save deeply!
Here are things you can edit (small list):
- Flights, Squadrons, Packages (names, types, weapons, fuels, pilots, status, side, patch, airbase, …)
- Ground Units, Battalion (name, type, status, side, mission, location, …)
- Taskforces (name, side, position, objectives, …)
- Campaign and mission general information
- Map with objectives and units placed (easy on map edition)
- List of objectives, Airbases radios frequencies and radio navigation aids info, …
- A lot more to discover…
Note: Beware as this tool has little limits and no documentation so you can mess up things pretty easily…
The tool can be found HERE.

Here are a couple tools you can find useful to edit weather in your campaign or missions:
