Thanks guys, means a lot to me!

I've spent couple of weeks to sort it out for A2, its the first time BIS didn't include the objects from a predecessor :/

Anyway, I will need help with that configs for all 4 airports. I doubt I can do this fixes today, I'm packing for a roadtrip.

Downloading now.

But only one smal question. Is the AI able to stick to the roads? Or don´t they recognize them?

Not true. Some OFP objects were not included in ArmA.

Tonci87: we did a 2,5 hour MP coop on it (I'll start to release missions in a week or so) and so far AI performs well on roads. Sometimes convoys get stuck on bridges (one vehicle crosses normally, while second stops) but that is BIS's problem with A2. In A1 they work without a hitch. If I'll have time I'll replace roads in upcoming v2.1 with latest ones from BIS.

p.s. AI overturned one vehicle (vodnik) and so did a human player on our side (LAV), so I guess AI is good =) but be carefully with choppers: AI is so excited to see Panthera they put daring maneouvers and often end in hillsides after they can't pull up ;)

Fantastic work :) One question tough, will it replace any objects in chernarus? I put all my addons in ONE modfolder, and usually play with it, and i would not want anything to change in chernarus?
