View Full Version : Couple of Questions!
Dec 7 2006, 18:21
How can I get a Helo to pick my group up (I am not grouped with the Helo). I want to use a radio trigger to call it to come to a predetermined spot. I know how to do the trigger etc, but the chopper either won't land or lands for 1 second and leaves.
Also, is there a way to detonate mines via trigger and make flare traps (Trigger as well). I have scripts for OFP but they don't work under ArmA.

This is something I have been fiddling with today as well. I'm picking up the editor fairly quickly and have managed to get the helo to respond to the radio call, proceed to the waypoint for loading, but then it just doesn't land. Can't extract if I can't get in the chopper lol.
Right now I have the chopper off on an island with a waypoint to the LZ and then off the map. The LZ is synched to a trigger that is activated by the Alpha radio channel. Just need to figure out how to make the helo land for loading.
If ya figure it out lemme know.

This was a problem in OFP as well until we got some decent scripts. SnYper wrote an excellent support pack that had Arty, Airstrikes and Helo extracts built into it. One can only hope that he updates it for ArmA, it was really a godsend, and all in a 600kish little file.

did you try synchronizin waypoints "get in" and "load" ?it should usually be possible if you have a fixed landing spot.
