Thanks for this.... I have downloaded it and will try it out.  I may have some questions in time :)

 

EDIT:  What about a loiter action?  So if I'm in a 'spooky' AC130 then it will circle around a position ?

Cannot get this to work.  Nothing shows up in options or on the action menu.

 

EDIT:  Ahh it is a module.  Could we get this as a straight addon ?  Would be very useful. 

Another question - could we command our AI to use the autopilot ?

1st question : maybe in the future

2nd question : yes you can

 

For AC-130, no, usaf mod has already his own script.

Great mod. It w-be nice if you make interface  bigger and ability to work with aircraft  when autpilot is ON

 (change weapon,fire,open GPS targeting...)

Excellent mod so far.

 

Questions:

How do I turn the autopilot off? Just close it out, move flight controls, etc...

What does the NAV button do, as it says NAV On when pressed?

 

Some buttons wont give you an off option when pressed twice. It is inconsistant, however.

 

Will this work with helicopters once at cruising speed.

 

Will an ILS eventually be built into GPS for IFR flying?

 

THanks again,

fix for your configpatchs

class CfgPatches
{
	class APS_AutoPilot
	{
		units[] = {"APS_ModuleAutopilot"};
		requiredVersion = 1.60;
		requiredAddons[] = {"A3_Modules_F"};
		author = "Jack Ost";
		url = "http://";
		name = "APS_AutoPilot";
	};
};

config.cpp: Line 163 Expected Semicolon

Hi,

 

Thanks for suggestions and thanks @armatech, I missed to update cfgpatches :)

 

It doesn't work with helicopters. And yes, I'm planning to add ILS, and others features.

Hey Jack Downloading now and going to test, hopefully will work well and will be a great addition to arma and allow us to Loiter while multitasking.   Just curious. I tried re scripting Blakes autopilot from  past ARMA2 and was pretty buggy but had a nice feature of a NAV function of adding multiple waypoints by 'mapclick' and would follow points in sequence up to 4  points. Is this a feature your familiar with / already added / thinkining about adding ? 

 

Willing to help if you want to try and work on something together.

 

Thanks again

Cool and much awaited feature for fixed wing, going to test this ASAP.
Now that we also have TGP and ground stabilasation as "standard" content the autopilot suddenly becomes high priority :)

Hi,

 

New version only client side available, guides are updated.

 

Changelog (v0.7) :

- Automatic Launch Addon

- Module version deleted

- Add keybinding menu

 

I know that there is some performance problems and it miss some nice features. But I decided to stop development  of this project till official release of Jets DLC (I think you know why).

AutoPilot Script v0.7

Hi all,

 

After many hours of work and research, I'm able to propose a new version of the autopilot script. I try a lot of solutions to have a realistic autopilot and a script using fewer game resources. Now, I think, I have the best compromise I can do with the current functions of the game.

 

Download link updated on the first page.

 

Changelog (v0.8) :

- Script Management of speed, altitude and direction completly rewrite

- Add compatibility with new throttle system

- Increase performance

- Change of Altitude is smoother

- Change of Direction is smoother but it is very slow

- Now need 1.72 version of the game

 

Give me feedbacks about this update.

Works excellent for eliminating the climb on gun runs and bombing with the wipeout.

 

Anyway to make a script and work with dedicated for those of us who play vanilla and use no mods?

 

Thanks,

Reed
