VET_Unflipping

 

This small utility addon allows players to perform Unflip on vehicles that are on their side or upside down

 

Download (Steam)

 

Requirements
- CBA_A3
- Installed both on clients and server

 

Settings
By default single infantry unit can unflip vehicles up to 3000 mass. Default value was balanced to allow unflipping of smaller vehicles by single unit.

If vehicle is heavier than amount that can be lifted by single unit then multiple people can join unflipping process. Amount of people needed depends on weight of vehicle.

 

If you would like to configure the addon to behave somewhat more "realistic" you can tweak following values in CBA Settings in `VET_Unflipping` category:

  • Unit mass limit - How much can be unflipped by single unit (default: 3000)
  • Man limit - Maximum amount of people that can be needed to unflip vehicle (default: 7)
  • Unflipping time - How long does it take to unflip vehicle (default: 5)
  • Maximum unflip weight - Vehicles with weight above this limit will be not unflippable (default: 100000)
  • Require toolkit (default: false)
  • Require servicing vehicle nearby (default: false)

 

Vanilla / ACE Actions
If ACE3 is detected unflipping action will be available in ACE3 Interaction menu, otherwise vanilla interaction menu will be used.

Known Issues
- Some vehicles might be a little bit wonky to unflip, try a few times, eventually they will unflip.

Looks promising.

 

Is there anyway you can add something that allows a player driven vehicle to flip another, such as a tank?  In SP this occasionally becomes an issue and I recently have resorted to another tank to flip the vehicle back.

I'm not planning to allow unflipping of vehicles by vehicles. However I want to add an option which will disable weight restrictions if any repair vehicle is near vehicle that is being unflipped.

 

 

 

Thank you for all positive reactions everyone!

Looks very decent 👍

 

Did you consider or even attempted an anti flip system - in other words to stop flipped vehicles happen in the first place (from bugged PhysX interaction)?

^^ Is there a way to poll all vehicles to check if they have flipped?

Can you add the ability to flip a vehicle when it's right-side up?

Sometimes I run into these situations but I can't unflip the vehicle because it's upright.

  • A vehicle is on top of a house. I would like to flip it until it's on the ground and right-side up.
  • It's high-centered on a tree stump or a rock. The wheels aren't making enough contact with the ground.
  • It's pinned in between two trees or rocks.

I think push action could help you in situations like that, I will try to add this when I'll have time.

Thank you for kind words! I've added this to my backlog on GitHub and I'll try to add this when I'll have some spare time:

I'm not sure what do you mean by polling. I'm mostly using `canMove` command to display the action and also I'm checking the pitch and bank of vehicle when player tries to unflip it.
