Might be a good idea to put in the OP that dying and restarting only voids time based requirements. I kept quitting out and restarting the 'Phillips Industries' mission because I kept crashing the plane trying for the bridges eventually I just gave up on the gold and kept retrying from checkpoint until I got all seven. Finished the mission and I had fulfilled every requirement but the mission time.

I think it would be a great idea to add something next to each Mission requirement if it is affected by a checkpoint, perhaps sticking a (C) or something next to the requirement description. As metabolic points out most of the ones affected are time based although I have fulfilled several time based requirements after several restarts as it was timing a specific part of the mission, i.e. "get the helicopter back within...", etc. Also I am pretty sure that some of the requirements affected by checkpoints are not time based as I have had 2-3 in a single mission that just have an 'X' and checkpoint next to them.

I will keep an eye on all Gold requirements from now and list all of the ones that I come across and let you know.
