Quick and easy guide on how to make the simpliest helo insertion in history and a more complicated but still easy evac (:

A3 Version


Insertion - step by step **Dont have to do step 1 can just make a player in step 3**
1: create a player on the ground near the lz.
2: create a helicopter either flying or on flat ground, name it heli
3: place a squad or a number of units and in the squad leaders init put
{x_ moveincargo heli} foreach units group this;
4: put a waypoint for the heli half way between the lz set behaviour to combat
5: place second waypoint on invis H and put it on "transport unload" then put another waypoint 'move' like 10 kms from lz
6: in the last waypoint put this
{deleteVehicle _x} forEach (crew heli); deleteVehicle heli
"heli" being name of helicopter


Evac - step by step
1: place 'player' on the map, with or without squad members
2: name them all eg. unit1, unit2, unit3
3: put heli some where on the map, name it heli. Place a waypoint pretty much on top of the heli
4: place trigger "Radio Alpha" (this is the what you radio for the evac to commence) sync it to helo's first waypoint (the one right next to the helis starting pos)
5: put another waypoint on a helipad (invisible) where you want the LZ to be. the waypoint should be 'load' and its init should be
dostop helo; helo land "get in"
then place another waypoint next to the H pad. In the condition of the waypoint put
((!alive unit1) OR (unit1 in helo)) AND ((!alive unit2) OR (unit2 in helo)) AND ((!alive unit3) OR (unit3 in helo))
add however many units you have in your squad.
6: place a final waypoint that leads to end of mission eg. trigger ending game or another drop zone.


What will happen is the heli will come in on radio trigger (can change to objective completed) and land at lz wait until all 'alive' squad members are in and then fly off to other waypoints.

The Evac example was a little difficult following your example, It needs correcting :-)

I have made the 2 example missions for you, all as you did but with an edit of the last
part of the way point so that the heli isnt always on the map after the insertion or evac etc...

This being the one with "heli" and obviously just changing it for the other using "helo"

{deleteVehicle _x} forEach (crew heli); deleteVehicle heli

Evac_Example and then the Insertion_Example missions.

And thanks for putting this thread together mate also ive added it to our Mission editing Newbie FAQ. :-)

DarkXess:

if i was to do more tutorials or mission examples/demos how could i use the same sort of thing you used?

Edit

Well you just save the mission, and then take the mission from you "ArmA 2" >> "Missions" folder
then .rar it. That is all :-) Like I said, the evac mission was hard to go by, I just tried my best
and did it the best possible and working way to how I understood it :-P

LoL oh, you didnt notice that I am a mod? we have a file storage for stuff like that.
If you would like to do things like that, then send me by email if you want and ill add them to my PFS
and give you the links. Unless however you have a work with Foxhound for a small PFS which he could
arrange for you, but that im not sure about and you would have to ask him :-)

your way is simpliest and when your in a hot lz and you have to switch to radio before taking off it can be a problem, especially if youra gunner. but then again that could also work better in some cases.
