Helicopter Fastrope

7 posts in this topic

Hello, I am new to the Exile Mod Community, but I have had fun playing this particular mod in the past couple of weeks. On the past servers I have played on there is a feature for Helicopters, FastRope. This feature allows users in the designated seats in the Helicopter to select a scroll wheel menu item, click it, and depending on the speed of the helicopter it will lower you to the ground. This feature is good for: Hot LZ Troop drop-off, adding a new point of entry on bases, accessing lookout spots that are not normally accessible (ex: A roof overlooking a mission/base), and mostly for dropping off your buddies in a short period of time allowing you to fly off and do other things. I am not educated in the field of Scripting, or how to implement these features, but I know this exists and am asking someone of authority to look into this option, or if it will not happen please also let me know. Thank you.

And add following to init.sqf

[] execVM "scripts\zlt_fastrope.sqf"; // ZLT Fastrope

I have already stated that I have no experience in the field of scripts. How would the script you posted be implemented? Would it require each client to use or would the Developers imbed it into the mod itself?

Basically you need to unpack your Exile.Altis.pbo file. 

This requires a PBOmanager. 

When your mission is unpacked you'll see something like this (This is my mission file, I got a lot of stuff in there.)

ExileFolderMap.png

Open a notepad, paste the script in it, and save it as: fastrope.sqf

Once you're done, open your init.sqf with a notepad and add: [] execVM "fastrope.sqf";

I obviously have a very different folder structure, but that is only for me to easier find my stuff. 

Does it make sense?

So when I install this, how would I be able to use it. Example: If my buddy was flying a mohawk i was sitting in the back, and i wanted to fastrope, would i be able to? Or would everyone in the helicopter need to have the script?
