Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum, so if i've missed the answer to my question in a diffrent forum, or the post is in the wrong place, my bad!

Anyways, i've got a problem. I'm making a mission where a huron drops a squad of Anti-terrorism units on top of a building. I've put an invisible helipad at the correct height next to the building, so the chopper now hovers perfectly next to it with only the ramp on the building. Unfortunately, the ramp does not open or close.
Does anybody have a clue on how to make the AI pilot open the ramp when landing, and close it when leaving?

Many thanks,

jappie2

*EDIT
Might aswell put this in the same post!
Does anybody also know how to make the AI pilot land faster? He gets within about 30 meters, after slowing down, and then slowly, very slowly, moves towards the LZ. Is there a way to make him hurry up?

I've not tested bit I think it's like this.
to open
heli AnimateDoor ["Door_rear_source", 1];
to close
heli AnimateDoor ["Door_rear_source", 0];


there is also another option
heli AnimateDoor ["Door_rear_source", 1,true];// instantly open
heli AnimateDoor ["Door_rear_source", 1,false];


There isn't a great deal you can do about landing.
You could increase the decent by using velocity but I find it's more trouble than it's worth and the chopper can crash into objects as it's been force down.

I have found a couple of little tricks that help.

Use a Heli pad and place the land waypoint about 50 meters past the pad that stops the slow movement towards it as it's already there.

If there are no structures around place a waypoint before the pad about 100 meters and have it reduce it's height by using vehicle this flyinheight 10 to get it to a lower altitude.

I found they can save around 6 six seconds atleast in A2.
