interesting mission idea
Inspired by a pipeline topic on the Just Graphics forum...

You know, this topic just gave me the idea for a rather interesting mission for a plug-in. Basically a ship company wants you to fly a prototype for them to photograph for a publicity campaign prior to actual introduction of the ship. So, you fly the thing and land on some planet so they can get that shot, and then you mock-fight some "pirates" for some action shots there. Then a few cröns later, the actual ship comes to market with the shipyard picts of you doing those things.

Nice idea, but there is the problem that you'll have to keep that prototype

It may not be as good as the real thing a little later.

You could always make it part of the deal.
Something like this:
Say your person is a celebrity.
If a corporation wants to take photographs it is only natural that you are forced to drive around in their vehicle for an amount of time.
I doubt Nike would be happy to see Ronaldinho on the field without they're gear.
Just bake it in as part of the deal, and give the player the option to refuse.

Actually not a bad idea, and considering that prototypes/concept vehicles are typically MORE powerful than their real-world counterparts, the person could have a slightly cooler version than the one that actually comes out.
Would be neat to see this in a plug-in someday. If somebody wants to steal it I'd be rather pleased.
