Microlight - Powered Paragliding

by
konyo


Description:
Ive now finished the ultralight today, but there is no different colour kite designs, so the red colour will have to do. sorry! But you can still use your own custom design on the ultralight. There is a template example and the template for you to use for the Microlight. Once you filled in the template with your design you need to save it as reskin1 and in a .paa extension file and save it in your mission folder that uses the Microlight. Then once in game go into the microlight init box and place the following :
this setObjectTexture [0,"reskin1.paa"];


Installation:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.


Included .pbo files:
kyo_microlight.pbo


Usage:
The Civilian Microlight's & Ultralight's can be found under 'Civilian' > 'Chernarus' > 'Air'.
The Military Microlight with Grenades can be found under 'USMC' > 'Air'.
Only to be used in ArmA2 + ArmA 2 Expansion Packs.

Custom parachute & kite design:
In the new v1.3 zip folder there is a template example and the template for you to use. Once you filled in the template with your design you need to save it as reskin1 and in a .paa extension file and save it in your mission folder that uses the Microlight. Then once in game go into the microlight init box and place the following "this setObjectTexture [0,"reskin1.paa"];" Then Ta-Da it should show in game! ;) NOTE : This also works the same way with the ultralight.


Known issues:
Only 1 colour for the Ultralight, for some reason the hidden selection's wouldnt work. Sorry!
Ultralight sometimes may take a few seconds to start moving.
The Ultralight Currently uses BIS animations, BMP3_Driver & UH60_Cargo02. If anyone would like to help make custom animations to fit the model correctly then please let me know. Thank you!
Few errors while trying to generate ST for points in arma.rpt.
Currently no damage model for Microlight & Ultralight.
