View Full Version : Liferaft
Oct 30 2002, 22:16
Can someone create a liferaft addon that is based on a simple boat.
No Power (so cant move)
1 position (e.g. cargo)
Yellow/Red style liferaft as in reality
If the addon can be made I will write a script that deploys the liferaft when a pilot/person ejects over water and lands in the water. and sits them in it awaiting rescue.

if you fell in the water, how do you plan on getting into the raft?

With a script... thats what he just said!
CWK made a few zodiak rafts, they can be found on ofp.info on the misc page or ofp-zone.de in the vehicles section.
They move though... just a little config edit and you can fix that though http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard301/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Yep, I was gonna suggest the same thing...just set fuel to 0 if you don't want it moving.
mmmm i presume u want the life raft for ai? otherwise the player would be stranded in the middle of the sea.

how do they get back to base?
It would be nice if you could do this without a script, but I understand. It just make it less useful for SP.

say u did the raft, and u made it deploy when you labnd in water...how are you gonna leave the raft and get into the plane when rescue comes.
u have to press "get out" so u can get in choppr.
but this means when u get out..you wil lfall in water..so maybe u can script it so that when u get out..it would place you standing inthe raft..and make the raft surface a roadway so u can walk on it...this way u can get in the rescue chopper.
well, if you didn't want the raft to move, you could make it a static object right from the start...just script it to appear upon impact with the water and move the player onto it so that the player starts out sitting down. When the helo comes over, the player can stand up, and hop in.

How about just a lifejacket for pilots so they don't sink/die in water?

And add fuel to get to shore (the fuel as a replacement for the life draining out of the pilot in the ice cold water). Instead of a engine sound you could add a swimming sound.

Wow lots of responses so far
The script will be something like - it pilot ejected and altitude < 1 then camCreate liferaft and pilot moveInCargo liferaft.
To leave the raft I will 'cheat' a bit and use - if distance between helicopter and raft is < 2 then addAction "Climb in helicopter" this will do a pilot moveInCargo helicopter and a camDestroy the liferaft.
I will try to do it with a standard boat to prove the script, and then replace the boat with the liferaft when it is done.
I already have scripts for heli pickups and smoke etc to use for the actual rescue.

Make the liferaft like something you can carry in a slot!
