Custom load rigging and attaching of helicopter sling loads.

 

Features

  • Set lifting points for objects not configured for sling loading
  • Use Forward and Aft cargo hooks on Huron, Mohawk, and RHS and CUP Chinook and Super Stallion
  • Attach multiple cargo objects to a single cargo hook
  • Use multiple cargo hooks to secure a Dual-point load
  • Adjust length of cargo sling legs
  • Experience more reliable MP sling loading thanks to localizing cargo to helicopter

 

Steam Workshop

Requires ACE

GitHub

 

Basic Usage
Get a Cargo Sling item from the nearest helicopter or the Arsenal.
Go up to a cargo object and use the ACE actions under Rig for Sling Load to prepare the load.
Once the sling is rigged up, you will be holding the Apex Fitting (the part that goes in the cargo hook). If you drop it, you can pick it up again.
Holding the apex fitting, get it near a cargo hook, and use Attach Cargo to hook on.
In the helicopter, crew may use ACE action or CBA keybind to Release Cargo.

 

Advanced Usage
After the cargo is rigged up to either a cargo sling or a helicopter, use Adjust Rigging to adjust the length of the sling legs, either all together, or singly.


If you hold the Apex Fitting and try to move further from the cargo than the ropes allow, you will drop the Apex Fitting.
 

When hooking up a single cargo to multiple cargo hooks, the slings after the first one won't appear connected to the cargo! Don't worry, they will connect to the helicopter once you Attach Cargo.

 

Enable rigging on almost anything!

_cargo setVariable ["amp_slingload_isRiggingEnabled", true, true];

Script custom sling points on your cargo.

_cargo setVariable ["amp_slingload_liftPoints", [[x1,y1,z1], [x2,y2,z2]...], true];

1.0.4

Added safe attachment point finding for helicopters with no slingload memory point defined to prevent ropes attaching to [0,0,0] and damaging the heli.

Hello again 🙂

Tried to evacuate crash-landed heli and have some issues, please look at 25.00 (may be still not HD)

 

And from 15.30

Rigging hook attaching have not visualized in process of rigging, but it was, and rigging points was not at the vehicle but in the air.
Heli was at some angle relatively at horizon, may be it is the reason.

@beeper That's quite the ambitious lift! I'll look into offset hook placement for elevated cargo 😃
If you can confirm reproduction of this behaviour as well, that would be awesome.

What kind of reproduction you need? I think I can do it in editor, but how can I give you necessary data to work on? Make video or something?
