Little Bird Intros

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have the entire Ghost squad inserted on 2 seperate little bird vehicles? I think chems did this a long time ago but im not positive about it. In either case im trying to decide on what helicopter to build at the moment.

CH47, MH-6, or UH60A..... maybe all if i get ambitious lol.

Yeah its possible, but requires a keind of complicated script look at mission modding and my Looop question do ApexMods suggestion but instead of insert them in different places place them on helos. Not hard but maybe make a script so hide a helicopter if Charlie isnt there etc.

It isn't reliable though. You can only use the 'VehicleLoadPlatoon' response, there is no individual loading of characters. The best and ONLY solution anyone has found is for singleplayer only. There is a script that lets you see what team the player is in, then it gives all remaining teams a plan to enter the vehicle. This only works for the AI teams and you may not be able to load the player. I would just put them all on one, not sure it is possible any other way.

Also note helis don't work in multiplayer, they'll crash a dedi server.

Can you load the platoon on one then tele a team to some zone subsequently loading them on another helo?

Yea, but I fear the engine may block the tele command from the vehicle...can you unload a team only?

man I need to get back in IGOR and try to remember some of what I learned about scripting...

What about this:

Still follow apexs setup with player teams but then do the script to find where player actor is and then also exectue plan team/s to the two or one other helo i mean so that the other teams will get a plan to enter vehicle insertion 2 or 3 and before that there will be a vehicleloadplatoon ? What about that maybe?

Two Helis as one vehicle maybe?

I think this might be what chems did. It could work I guess but I dont want them to look like their flying as one vehicle. So maybe a weird parent/child relationship could help. I have no idea how To do that though.

My IGOR skills are very rusty but I worked a lot in mission 2 of Armenia Mod to insert the player platoon in 2 different places. Script has been very complex but I could not do it properly for the cinematic. Therefore I cheated:

1) actual insertion is working perfectly

2) insertion teams for cinematic are instead virtual ghosts (actors that I placed out of the map and then teleported and loaded into the vehicle).

At the end the result was very good but it's very credible because the map is set in night environment and I avoided close cameras to avoid to spot the difference between the actual inserted ghosts and the virtual ones.,
