Thread: Vertical Tqakeoffs Harriers

  1. #1

    Vertical Tqakeoffs Harriers

    How do I get the AI to use the vertical takeoff from where ever I place them when placing Harriers?

    You can't, the harrier is incapable of vertical take-off even for players.

    Why is that the harrier is a vertical take off and landing plane that is what it does? They have never fixed that? Well whatever I can't believe that hasn't been addressed

    I really wish I could figure out these mando airport scripts that would fix it

    Actually, that's not ture. Fully loaded, the harrier is only capable of STOVL (short take-off, vertical landing). This is accurately modelled in game.

    Take off's can be faked but having them fly after that's another problem.

    just put a chopper directly over the harrier and name them harrier and chopper

    thin in the init of one of the units put chopper hideobject true;harrier attachto[chopper]

    attach the waypoint to the chopper and set to careless and limited..

    it looks ok and doesn't sound too bad, however as the harrier isn't really flying when you use detach harrier in a waypoint it crashes.

    Ok if I use the editor and pop down a home made runway will the planes work? because I remember when I used to play that was a real joke put hours and hours into making some hot shit airport only to find out its not going to function as one ever LOL I think there are ways to do it now but you have to be good at scripting.

    I found this addon at armaholic called Mando Airfields and downloaded it unfortunately the example missions for it are from queens gambit which I do not have so I dont think theres anyway for me to view a mission from an island I dont have? its from an island .sara..

    Anyways this addon allws you to add in vertical take offs to make your harriers look and work as they should and allows you to set in markers for regular takeoff and ladings to occur anywhere you want as long as the terrain is flat. I dont understand why this isn't a hugely popular addon with all of the capabilities this offers. Unless in my absence there is something better that allows the same thing.

    Anyways do any of you have this or have used it?

    Well with the code I posted it's really on for looks as it's the chopper doing the flying, I haven't found a way to successfully release the harrier from the chopper without the plane crashing.

    I never tried the addon as I've never found the link even after doing a search.
