Hey, I've searched for quite a while and can't find anything on this...

What is the best way to script a helicopter landing on the LHD?

The AI seems afraid of the LHD, it's very annoying considering most of my mission takes place on it, and the AI randomly decides they don't want to follow your commands (as simple as walk to a location on the LHD), or get any closer to the LHD than they are. For all that ArmA 2 does right, they really need to work on pathfinding, and have needed to since ArmA 1, so I'm not sure why it doesn't seem to have improved.

Anyways, I'm a decent scripter, but I'm lost on how to make an AI chopper land on the LHD.

Not got arma 2 to hand (in work) but have you tried putting down a invisable heli pad and i'm sure if there is a do land command or something

dostop choppername;choppername land "heli pads name"

Where the second land is the invisable heli pads name ?

Not sure if that works but hey worth a try

Well, you didn't search so well. In the Mission editing Newbie FAQ scroll down to waypoints.
