Arma3 - Helicopter Pickup and Dropoff

From Scottworld
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This will bring in a Helicopter to pick up all players, take off when all players are on-board and then drop them off at a new location and "dust off" when all players have exited the chopper. The pilot cannot be killed and the Co-pilot controls are disabled. (So the players cannot hijack the ride.) This is for 5 players, variable names are

Viper1
Viper2
Viper3
Viper4
Viper5

Drop a helicopter and give it a variable name. We will also lockout the driver and co-pilot controls.

Variable:

Hotel_1

Init:

this lockDriver true;
this enablecopilot false;

Delete the co-pilot (if not required) And change the Pilot to give them a name and set so they are invulnerable.

Variable:

Hotel_1P

Init:

this allowDamage false;

Now we plot the helicopters path...

Waypoints:
