kingofnuthin1980 posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTING[RELEASE] Script to para jump and land with your squad in formation When using steerable parachutes, my squad never followed me. They were spinning around, hanging in their parachutes, and they were landing wherever they want. I got tired to catch up with my squad after every jump, so I wrote this script. WHAT IT DOES: If you go into freefall, your squad will drop out of the aircraft. When not looking at your squad, it gets repositioned behind you. In freefall and when they are in their parachutes. Your squad opens the parachute when you do, or when they reach a height between 100 and 75 meters. Your squad should land close to you. To make the units not spin around in their parachutes, the simulation of the parachute is disabled. THE SCRIPTS: Add this eventhandler for your player unit, to check for freefall animation: AIM_fnc_paraDropInit (this adds the action to open your parachute, handles your squad exit out of the aircraft, and initializes the formation) AIM_fnc_paraDropParachute (this opens your parachute, and for squad members it waits until you have opened your parachute) AIM_fnc_paraDropFormation (keeps your squad close to you, until you landed) YOU HAVE FOUND ISSUES OR YOU HAVE OPTIMIZATION SUGGESTIONS?

Hi guys. I'm back after a VERY LONG time away, and find out that i still can not code to save my life! Can someone help me please? I'm sure this exists elsewhere and I'm sorry, I have searched but came up blank. I'm trying to write a little script to drop me and my AI (or player) team out of a BlackFoot. I 'could' give each unit a parachute backpack and force them to 'eject' as the plane goes through a trigger right? But I don’t want to do that, as the units will loose their default backpacks (medic, ammo bearers, explosive guys, etc). So what I’m doing is spawning a 'steerable_parachute' behind the plane and moving each unit in turn using movindriver. The problem is that they will not move to the chutes if they are in the plane. If they start on the ground, they'll instantly move to the chute. If i put them in the plane first at the start of the mission, they will not lose their association with the plane. UnassignVehicle doesn’t work. Can anyone please help me sort this stupid little issue please, it's driving me nuts! (I could share the script if you wish, but it's so rudimentary (and doesn't work!) there's no real point.
