I've just released the ShackTac Littlebird Enhancement Mod. Note that this is a beta release, so expect some potential issues. With that being said, it has been quite usable for those of us at ShackTac and I'm happy with how it has turned out.

You can find details and download info here. Feature requests and bug reports can be handled there as well through the ticket system. The news/files sections will be updated as new versions are released.

Here are some example videos showing off functionality:

News sites, please do not mirror the files themselves. I'd like it to be accessible from DH exclusively.

Also, since I know this will come up: No, I do not plan to make this for any other vehicles aside from the xH-6 platform. If you'd like to take on that challenge, feel free - I just do not personally have the time for it.

Enjoy! :D

Yep. Its fucking awesome.

Thanks!

Edit: Only problem for me now is flying the chop with mod enabled - 'W' key makes you leave the pilot seat (ergo crash) and I generally use that for flying -doh! :P

Another amazing & characteristically small addon from the ShackTac team - thanks!

I don't play MP (yet) but can't resist trying it after reading this:

"whatever happens in SP is a surprise just waiting for you to discover, whee!"

I look forward to being surprised this evening :)

This definitely should not happen. If you find repro steps (ie: what mods you're using, what helo, OA version, etc) post them to the tracker. W/S (or rather - moveForward/moveBack) should only work when sitting on the bench seats.

If you're in FFV mode, W toggles into it and S toggles out. After that, normal action menu bits apply. Check the wiki if you're not sure how it's supposed to work.

Just amazing mate!

Talking of others taking up the challenge of firing from other vehicles, could you give us an idea of the complexity of this process?

With an AI pilot, is it possible to take controls from him, then pass back control?

Ok, will do. The strange thing is that only in the pilot seat did I see the yellowed option FFV (W) as opposed to just the normal FFV option.

Woh, great job Dslyecxi, I hope that BIS would take a look at this and take into consideration some more realistic details to be added,
choosing your seat would be a good place to start.
