CRV-6e Bobcat use in mine/ied clearing

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I was wondering if anyone knows, or has some ideas, how can I use CRV-6e for mine/ied clearing?

 

I know there is a animation to front part of the vehicle, but that by on its own, is not enough..

 

Thanks!

Lower the plow and drive slowly over the mines.

Shouldn't take any, at least last time I tried.

You need to drive slowly over the mine with the plow lowered, is a bit wonky with keyboard, but using a HOTAS or other analog axis for acceleration it's smooth as a 2A46 125mm barrel.

 

Use this to lower the plow if there isn't already an implemented way of doing so:

vehicle player animatesource ["moveplow", 1];

The bobcat takes just as much damage from mines as from every other damage source. In its current state you can remove more mines before being completely destroyed when driving an MBT. The plow shield has no function besides cosmetic.

 

But fret not, that's why I've made this little script a while ago: https://github.com/Pergor/ADV_Mods/blob/master/adv_bobcat/functions/fn_bobcat.sqf

With this you not only have an action to move the plow, but also the incoming damage is reduced while the plow is down - and additionally you can flatten craters and trenches from ace and grad_trenches.

Nice!

 

Thanks a lot!

Yes, this worked for me last time I tried it.

That's a scripted solution. It picks up craters with the blade when you drive into them.
