More complex helo flight insertion/extraction script
Can someone make a set of scripts or even a module that lets the player as a ground unit interact with a particular helicopter (specifically a Blackhawk with twin M134s), either one or two with the second being a gunship and request mutliple functions of that helicopter and crew.
For example, the player and his team go to the flight line to get onto a waiting helicopter, click on the map to where the helicopter needs to go or an already predefine location via mission editor with a predifined set altitude according to behaviour and when the helicopter arrives at that location, player has the option of landing the helicopter, fast roping or have the helicopter hover two meters off the ground for insertion, then the helicopter either leaves to go to a predefine staging area, begins a definable orbit around the player and team to provide cover, or returns to base. And then the player has the ability to request extraction, either routine or emergency via chemlights, smoke grenade, IR Stobe, signal panel, or other, all with definable approach and departure vectors. Routine being the helicopter has to do other things like refuel, pick up others or rearm. So basically the player tells the helicopter what, when, where and how without it being on his team.
I know this sounds like alot, but It's something I feel needs to be done in order to make the special forces missions seem more interactive and quickly and effectively create more realistic battlefield immersion with joint operations and support.

I hope this will work out! would be so nice, I tried having an escort copper but making it succesfull takes a lot of waypoints since grouping them will make them climb and decent al the time. On the other hand, with a lot of waypoints around the copper won't land..
there is a script making it possible to click and fastrope and a the medivac module/script where requesting extracting requires popping smoke, it should be possible.
Succes with your search!
