Weak airlift cables

5 posts in this topic

Hey, i don't know if it's on the specefic server i'm on, cause haven't checked other, but something's really weird, in regular arma i can lift things and go like 300 km/h and the cables won't get loose and drop the vehicle by itself, like lose the vehicle, but now, i try lifting a simple offroad/hilux with every chopper that can - Hellcat/Orca/Huron/Taru and the cables are too loose, one way or another it's gonna drop the vehicle, even if i'm flying slow.

Yeah so advanced sling interacts with normal hook load, normally getting over 150 will let it go, if you deploy rope  for double cargo and shorten them you can probably get a bit more speed but not by much. Normal hook load is vanilla so you can get away with it at those speeds with servers that don't use advanced sling loading.

I just use advanced towing and regular chopper loading on my server and it will still occasionally acts funky when you're going over 100km. I've done some testing and it seems to be a lag issue. Like the heli and vehicle get out of sync like you dragged it into a tower and "snapped" the lines. It happens most when I zoom in with RMB. I've zoomed in and then back out real quick and watched the vehicle rubber band back a little bit and then snap back under the heli.  I've also seen it happen on other servers with no towing/sling loading mods when you went into a new area (while the place name and time show up in the top left of the screen). So my best guess is you're experiencing a heli/vehicle sync issue caused by connection lag. I'd suggest finding a server with a better connection. That's the best fix I've found aside from just slowing down.
