My avionics are black inside the Action Pack variants.

You have a base pack and action pack installed that are not the same version number. The steps to fix this issue are below:

Delete the hpg-airbus-h145 and hpg-airbus-h145-ap folders, DO NOT delete the hpg-airbus-h145-usersetup folder if it exists. 

Visit the HPG H145 Action Pack download center and download the same version of both the base pack and action pack and install these into your community folder as usual.

How do I start firefighting missions?

  • Load H145 firefighter and put it on the runway or at a gate, open the tablet up.
  • Load up Scenario Editor. you won't see a red "Server Offline" in the top right corner, but if you do, that's a problem.
  • Click Connected Aircraft at the top in Scenario Editor. this page shows all the connected clients (just you but you can connect/reconnect and also in theory add your friends though it requires some network setup right now)
  • Now, in the H145, open the Missions app (it's a blue icon now but still has the same controls as the Maps app). Click the MISSION MENU and then click Connect to Scenario Editor (local).
  • Back in Scenario Editor, you should see a line added to the Connected Aircraft table, and it'll show your livery and such. Now you are connected to the app and you can build a scenario.
  • Back on the Scenario page in Scenario Editor, click Edit, and then click Start adding Objects. The box below controls the object type (currently a small fire, a swimming pool or a firefighting portable pool). For starting off I would just pick a place near MSFS water sources (all oceans, lakes, rivers that look like water will work) and places a couple fires close to each other, and then you can press Apply Changes
  • In the H145 cockpit, when you pressed Apply Changes, you should see the mission app objective list reload and then say "Begin Firefighting".
  • Now you're ready to go. The bambi is attached by default so you can fly to a nearby water source and pick up a load. The hotkey to dump the bucket is the same as the H145M Weapons Primary Fire, so bind that to make things easy
