I have been trying for a few days to script a helicopter to come in, land and then for the ai to board, then have the heli take off. I have tried watching videos and even tried searching, there was a redit post where someone provided an example but that file is no longer available and they did not go into details on how it was done. I made a helicopter, put it into the air, set a load waypoint, then created a ai fireteam group and set a waypoint for "get in" I then linked the "get in" waypoint activation to "load". What hapens is the helicopter says in the air, and on top of that the ai immediately heads for the get in waypoint. I thought that the waypoint for "get in" would only become active once "load" was true. I have also experimented with adding a "land" waypoint followed by the load, nothing is working, the ai moves to the position and does nothing. How can I make a simple scenario such that the helicopter flys in, lands waits for the ai to board, then takes off? [solved]I have two working solutions, for anyone reading this who is also having this problem, see my responses below.[/solved]
Hello all. :) So I'm making a mission in which your unit starts at base, loads into a helicopter, flys to the AO and unloads from their helicopter on the ground. The heli then circles overhead, before landing again and picking up the unit. When making the waypoints, the heli gets to the area, drops the unit and fly's my cycled waypoint circle no problem. The problem is once I add in the waypoints in the editor for it to "skip waypoint" out of the cycle and go to load the unit for the second time (in the field). When I test the mission, the helicopter spools up and takes off without my squad. Before, working correctly, the helicopter would stay on the ground at base and wait for my unit to load before spooling up and taking off. After adding in the waypoints beyond the "cycle" waypoint (and more specifically, adding the second "load" waypoint, to pick up the unit in the field) the helicopter spools up and takes off without my unit. Actually, my unit doesnt even seem to give the "get in" order anymore, just a "move to" order. :wacko: Whats more, once I delete the waypoints I added in to attempt to go back to the previous, working behavior, the helicopter keeps acting up. Any ideas on why this is happening? :blink: The only mods I am running is "Eden enhanced". P.S. If it helps, the ultimate goal I'm trying to achieve is to have the heli drop off my group, circle overhead untill a condition is met (such as blowing up an objective on the ground), and then come down to pick u my group before continuing on to the next objective where it will do the same thing again. This is for a single player mission. Thanks in advance! :D
