Advanced Sling Loading



SP & MP Compatible. Full replacement for in-game sling loading.

Features:

Ropes can no longer attach automatically! You need to either get out of your helicopter or have someone on the ground pick up your cargo ropes and attach them to an object.

All players on board a helicopter are given a "ropes" action. This lets any player deploy, extend, shorten or release cargo ropes.

Once cargo ropes are deployed, any player can go to the end of the rope and pick it up.

Once the ropes are picked up by a player, they can be attached to pretty much every object in the game.

Players can drop ropes if they're carrying them

Players on the ground can detached ropes from an object

Usage:

Install via steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=615007497

or, see the source link below for directions on installing script version.

Updated both addon and script versions to adjust the rope mount points. I had reports of some vehicles flipping over when you picked them up.

Thanks! :-)
For now I have only updated the addon version as I have no idea where to get the script version from, and if it is from github maybe you can create a script package cause I really have no idea which files need to be part of the script archive.

Released v1.2 of the addon and script version:

I've made an update to the addon to allow mission creators to disable lifting of heavy vehicles. By default, lifting of heavy vehicles is enabled.

Add the following to your init.sqf file to disable heavy lifting:

missionNamespace setVariable ["SA_ASL_HEAVY_LIFTING_ENABLED",false,true];

Add the following to your init.sqf file to enable heavy lifting (enabled by default):

missionNamespace setVariable ["SA_ASL_HEAVY_LIFTING_ENABLED",true,true];

Latest source can be found here if you don't want to use the addon version. See readme for directions to use the script version.

Hi, I've been following this script since you released it, and its a gift from heaven, truly.
We can finally move about howitzers and larger gear without issues, and with proper ropes aswell.

I have got one suggestion, based on my experience with this mod so far: maybe add the possibility to add custom keybindings to the actions? Maybe to some of the custom controls? Right now it's really annoying and time consuming to scroll though the menu, and select the ropes, and then your desired action, and then to repeat it again.

Thats my only point tho, the script is really good, we only need to do a final test with ACE3, before we add it to our modpack for our custom mission nights, so thank you!!!

Rct. Maurice, I agree, custom key bindings would be a nice addition.

Just wanted to drop by and say how much I and a lot of people appreciate your work on this. This makes heli supply ops possible in many ways. Here are a few pictures to show some work being done

http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/311117166548505642/4C16872B1A3993DD7DCB3FAA628EA79508D97D73/

This is possible by setting the advanced sling to 10m and using the default sling to hook up to the second object next to it. This is allows for heavy lifting operation to available. It does account for both weights. For example if I hook up to two hunters I'm unable to lift. Not enough lift capacity. If I unhook one I can.

Again we all appreciate your hard work on this!

Duda, quick question, does this mod work on aircraft as well? I have been hoping and praying to be able to sling smaller heli's using a Chinook. Right now we are running Vietnam stuff using GR's Med Utility Heli pack Hueys and JW's Chinooks. Not asking you to go out of your way for little old us, just wondering if it already does this?

Cookgunnermag - sick pics lol. I love the double Humvee hoist. I immediately thought of my fav real life pic of The Shitter - a pair of them slinging double humvees and also refueling from a C-130:

Added 1 hour 40 minutes later:

NM.......shit works!!! I will edit this and post pics as soon as I get them from my testing partner. We were able to hoist the RDS arty and also the stock little bird....and more importantly JW's Chinook will absolutely hoist GR's hueys from the Med Utility pack!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!!

Very awesome script mod Duda, home f'ing run Sir!!

You can pick up other helicopters. I picked up a Ch-53E with another CH-53E. It was at maximum weight and was hard to get forward flight but once you have Effective translational lift you are good to go.
Also can pick up the drone aircraft which is good for recovery ops.

There are issues picking up fixed wing aircraft and some static objects.
