You know the old question: "How do I get two groups to enter the same helicopter with the helicopter starting on the ground?"
And then the typical answer: "Give the helicopter a load waypoint and the soldiers a couple get in waypoints and sync the get in waypoints with the load waypoint."
And then the inevitable reply: "But the chopper hops into the air and comes back down, then the people get in. ***Is there a way to keep the helicopter on the ground until everyone's in?"
Well, I've found a way but it too has its problems. ***I've figured out that if you just cause the chopper to start on the ground and without a drop of fuel, the waypoint will be activated, the chopper won't go airborn before everyone's aboard, and everyone will be able to get in. ***You then make a trigger that'll activate when everyone's onboard and sync that trigger with the chopper's load waypoint. ***Then in the trigger's On Activation waypoint, give the chopper a full fuel tank. ***Then give the chopper a second waypoint wherever you want it to fly to. ***Perfect right? ***No. ***I'm using BAS's blackhawks and when they start, they have this really loud whirring noise as the starter starts the engine. ***If I do the above idea, it works except that the helicopter gives off that rediculously annoying noise until the chopper gets fuel. ***That's because the pilot is trying to start the engine the whole time.
My question here is, is there a way to keep the pilot from starting the engine until the chopper gets fuel so I don't have that annoying starter whir?
Hey, if there's a way to keep the pilot from starting the engine until something else says so, then that would solve the problem right there. ***Oh well, whatever.
Edit: I know what you're thinking. You're thinking: "Well then don't use that chopper, use the BIS blackhawk. That chopper doesn't do that." The reason why I want to stick with the BAS blackhawk instead of the BIS blackhawk is because in comparison, the BIS blackhawk is dreadfully ugly and simplistic.
