  • 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.

    Place the included SP demo mission in your ArmA2/Missions folder.

    Included .pbo files:

    AI Anti-Dive Bomb:
    The Fired EH us used to get AI to break off their death-diveat targets. Plane will either break left or right, or accelerate away. No parameters for users.

    Fly Height:
    Can be used to regulate AI pilot flying heights. example;
    _plane animate ["flyheight",0.26];
    0.26 = 260 meters
    e.g. For AI flying around mountains, in the INIT field;
    this flyInHeight 320; this animate ["flyheight",0.32];
