AI Taxi and taking off... No landing yet.

 

I haven't messed with this sense idk end of may or June. An update broke most of my scripts so I'm rewriting this. The link above has a sample mission for planes taxiing and taking off. No landings or taxiing for landing in it yet. If I get more spare time I'll see what I can do.

Looks like we are working through the next few weekends. So progress will be slowed down. :/

Does anybody know how to make AI pilots level out Flaps, rudders and anything else on the jets so it will take off straight?

Thats how I've done it. not the best code I know but it works. Script takes three arguments. The Carrier object, the plane to launch and the catapult. I placed my planes in front of the catapult where I wanna launch them in also did some 


disableAI "MOVE";

This is the Launch code I use to Launch the planes.

This is for Turning the plane on deck to taxi to launching spot:

This is the mission I use for the scripts:

Testing AI Launching and taxiing

 

Still haven't worked on Landing and taxiing to parking spots, but smoothed up the Taxiing and Launching a good bit. It also Launches 2 planes at staggered time intervals. 

 

Feel free to use, edit, and share how you want. My only stipulation is. If you find a better way, or something that will help other learn. SHARE your findings here. So that others may be able to learn and help the community. Some of the scripts above are edited from BIS original scripts.

sorry to be a muppet but....

what script do i use if i just want to launch 1 aircraft off the CV to then follow waypoints?

For dedicated (but works in editor of course) nothing fancy, just shoots the thing off the boat

 

the CarCom one that @mikey74 posted up works great for launching the plane but i don't want the taxi stuff first, aircraft just needs to lock in and launch off

 

any of those functions i can comment out??

You can use stock Bis Scripts for that. ;) If you go into function in the editor the select Jets in one of the categories. Bis has some farely decent scripts.

Yes. I've been considering it. Pretty sure as soon as I post it someone else will post one that's better. ;) lol

 

If I get time and nothing pops up I may work on script packs and maybe modules. Been very busy in my life so all my mods have been neglected or plain abandoned.

The thing especially with arma 3 editor is is that it is all about smoke and mirrors.

It doesn't matter which of the options you take from above everything works perfectly after you've flushed out the unintended bugs.

It is easy to write a script if you know what you need, writing a script for someone else can be tricky therefor.

Just look around to what we've all been saying and for sure one of them will work for you to.

Lets say that scripts are easier to maintain then a module. Thanks for the script sharing ^^

Sorry for kicking this thread.
 

I still can´t lift up the deflectors... (needed for dedicated server!)
I don´t play the developers-version of Arma3.
lotse4 is the deck-marshall (today on duty for catapult4), which should play some nice animations from the cutscenes in animations-viewer, but thats the second problem described at the end of this thread.

This is my code:
(executed via trigger:   0 = [freedom, KI_plane04,"Catapult4"] execVM "scripts\ki_launch4.sqf";   carriername is "freedom", jetfighter is called "KI_plane04"  )

params["_carrier","_plane", "_catapult"];


        private _carrierObj = "Land_Carrier_01_hull_07_F";

        if (_catapult in ["Catapult3", "Catapult4"]) then {
            _carrierObj = "Land_Carrier_01_hull_07_F";
        };
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsMarshallingEnginesOn_in"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
		sleep 2.366;
       	(driver _plane) disableAI "MOVE";
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsMarshallingEnginesOn_loop"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
	    sleep 10;
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsMarshallingEnginesOn_out"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
		sleep 0.066;
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsCrewaidFCrouch_in_m"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
		sleep 2.866;
        [lotse4, "Acts_JetsCrewaidFCrouch_loop_m"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
        _carrierObjects = _carrier nearObjects [_carrierObj, 100];
        _CarrierPart = _carrierObjects param [0, objNull];
        _carrierPartCfgCatapult = configfile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _carrierObj >> "Catapults" >> _catapult;
        _CarrierPartanimations = getArray (_carrierPartCfgCatapult >> "animations");
        [_CarrierPart, _CarrierPartanimations, 10] spawn BIS_fnc_Carrier01AnimateDeflectors;
        sleep 14;
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsCrewaidLCrouchThumbup_in_m"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
		sleep 1.533;
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsCrewaidLCrouchThumbup_loop_m"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
		sleep 4.366;
		_plane engineOn true;
        [_plane] call BIS_fnc_AircraftCatapultLaunch;
		[lotse4, "Acts_JetsCrewaidLCrouchThumbup_out_m"] remoteExec ["switchMove", 0];
		sleep 4;
		(driver _plane) enableAI "MOVE";
        sleep 6;
        [_CarrierPart, _CarrierPartanimations, 0] spawn BIS_fnc_Carrier01AnimateDeflectors;

 

 

And another issue:

The loop-animations inserted in the code above will not play as a loop, just the animation time itself or it cuts to early, and it does not repeat.
I want to have the _in, then the _loop (repeated a few times) and than the _out animations played continuesly, the _loop should be played 4x or 2x, then continue to the following animation.
Especially the CrouchThumbUp-stuff, because the marshall should stay down while the jet ist started by the catapult:

_in
_loop (_loop, _loop,...)
jetstart  *wuuusch*
_loop (should end after jet is gone, not before or while start)

_out

I´ve tried around, but it does not really work... I´m really not good at this stuff, please help me with that code... Thanks!

How do I use BIS_fnc_AircraftCatapultLaunch? When I put the AI plane on the catapult, ready to launch, and call this function, it either gives an error or doesn't do anything. I used the example from the script's comments:
[_fighter01] call BIS_fnc_AircraftCatapultLaunch

This doesn't appear to do anything. What's the correct way of doing it?

Sorry for being totally ignorant, but how do I get this to work?

Hey Guys,

I'm a total noob when it comes to scripts and stuff, so I hope you can help me out. I'm looking for a simple way to just manually animate the Jet blast deflectors on the USS Freedom. No Plane launch or anything needed, just the deflectors.

Thank you!

Do the following:

  1. Name your carrier MyCarrier
  2. Execute the following script
  3. Change the following lines to your needs:
    1. _animationState = 10; // 0 means folded, 10 means nearly 90° to the deck
    2. *partFromAbove* // change this to either _frontLeft, _frontRight, _backLeft, _backRight
_frontLeft = ["Land_Carrier_01_hull_04_1_F","Catapult1"];
_frontRight = ["Land_Carrier_01_hull_04_2_F","Catapult1"];
_backLeft = ["Land_Carrier_01_hull_07_1_F","Catapult4"];
_backRight = ["Land_Carrier_01_hull_07_1_F","Catapult3"];

_animationState = 10;

*partFromAbove* params ["_partClass","_catapult"];
params ["_carrier"];
_carrierPart = (MyCarrier nearObjects [_partClass,200]) select 0;
[
	_carrierPart,
	getArray (configfile >> "CfgVehicles" >> typeOf _carrierPart >> "Catapults" >> _catapult >> "animations"),
	_animationState
] spawn BIS_fnc_Carrier01AnimateDeflectors;

Hi there

 

I'm a totally noob in scripting and I tried this script a thousand times. It didn't work for me. I also have found a video tutorial in french (I didn't understand much :down:) but it also didn't work.

 

So please, can anybody upload a mission where one plane start from catapult 3 and after this a plane start from catapult 4 (like in the showcase mission). It would be great if there is also the catapult crew with their special animations (like in the showcase mission).

 

Thanks a lot!!!

The whole launch process is a rather complicated subject and not newbie friendly. If you still want to see how BIS did it you'll have to get a pbo viewer, a text editor and an fsm editor (found in the A3 Tools on Steam). The path to BI's mission is this one:

<ArmA 3 main folder on Steam>\Jets\Addons\missions_f_jets.pbo\showcases\showcase_jets.altis

 

Here is the mission for the editor:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LJpJ4hPIQcbZ7dB-WazQ7Pi0IHozOFjy

 

The most interesting part is the following section from missionFlow.fsm:

//start the wingman launch procedure
[] spawn
{
	_mirroredAnims	= false;

	//animate blast deflector
	_carrierObjects = BIS_plane_wingman nearObjects ["Land_Carrier_01_hull_07_1_F", 100];
	_carrierPart = _carrierObjects param [0, objNull];
	_carrierPartCfgCatapult = configfile >> "CfgVehicles" >> "Land_Carrier_01_hull_07_1_F" >> "Catapults" >> "Catapult3";
	_carrierPartanimations = getArray (_carrierPartCfgCatapult >> "animations");
	_dirOffset = getNumber(_carrierPartCfgCatapult >> "dirOffset");
	_direction = (getDir _carrierPart - _dirOffset - 180) % 360;

	BIS_plane_wingman setDir _direction;

	sleep 3;
	[_carrierPart, _carrierPartanimations, 10] spawn BIS_fnc_Carrier01AnimateDeflectors;

	private _duration = getNumber(missionConfigFile >> "CfgCarrier" >> "LaunchSettings" >> "duration") max 6;
	private _stepLength = _duration/24;

	sleep 12;

	[BIS_crewAidL_2,"playmovenow","Acts_JetsCrewaidLCrouch_loop",_mirroredAnims] call bis_fnc_carrier01CrewPlayAnim;
	sleep 0.5;
	[BIS_crewAidR_2,"playmovenow","Acts_JetsCrewaidRCrouch_loop",_mirroredAnims] call bis_fnc_carrier01CrewPlayAnim;
	sleep 0.5;
	[BIS_crewAidF_2,"playmovenow","Acts_JetsCrewaidF_runB",_mirroredAnims] call bis_fnc_carrier01CrewPlayAnim;

	[BIS_shooter_2,"playmove","Acts_JetsShooterIdle",_mirroredAnims] call bis_fnc_carrier01CrewPlayAnim;
	[BIS_shooter_2,"playmovenow","Acts_JetsShooterIdleMoveaway_loop",_mirroredAnims] call bis_fnc_carrier01CrewPlayAnim;
	sleep 4.7;
	[BIS_shooter_2,"playmove","Acts_JetsShooterIdleMoveaway_out",_mirroredAnims] call bis_fnc_carrier01CrewPlayAnim;


	[BIS_wingman,[BIS_shooter_2,BIS_crewAidF_2,BIS_crewAidL_2,BIS_crewAidR_2],_mirroredAnims] execFSM 'playLaunchAnims.fsm';

	private _posWorld = getPosWorld BIS_plane_wingman;

	BIS_wingman enableAI "MOVE";
	BIS_plane_wingman flyInHeightASL [200, 200, 200];
	BIS_plane_wingman forceSpeed 200;

	private _timeStart = time;
	private _timeLaunch = _timeStart + (24 * _stepLength);

	waitUntil
	{
		BIS_wingman setVariable ["carrierCatapultState",floor((time - _timeStart)/_stepLength)];
		BIS_plane_wingman setPosWorld _posWorld;
		BIS_plane_wingman setDir _direction;

		time >= _timeLaunch 
	};

	BIS_wingman setVariable ["carrierCatapultState",25];

	[BIS_plane_wingman,_direction] spawn BIS_fnc_AircraftCatapultLaunch;

	sleep 5;

	//ANIMATE BLAST DEFLECTOR DOWN #3
	[_carrierPart, _carrierPartanimations, 0] spawn BIS_fnc_Carrier01AnimateDeflectors;

	sleep 10;

	BIS_shooter_2 playmove "Acts_JetsShooterIdle2";
	BIS_crewAidF_2 playmove "Acts_JetsCrewaidF_idle";
	BIS_crewAidL_2 playmove "Acts_JetsCrewaidL_idle";
	BIS_crewAidR_2 playmove "Acts_JetsCrewaidR_idle";
};

 

You might wanna start there if you feel up to the task. I won't be able to provide any script since I am busy atm.

Thank you for your help. After dozens of hours it works. Also with the specific animations. Do you have any idea how the ai could land on the carrier?

I have followed THIS example..and it work. Have the plane taxing after landing is another story then. I also try the takeoff script posted above with success, but cannot get the deck crew animation working. Would you mind share how you got it working.

Thank you.
