NORRN Aerial Taxi Service Script [ALPHA]

by
norrin


Description:
This suite of scripts allows you to jump on an AI piloted chopper and then command it to fly to a map point where it will land and you can disembark. The chopper will then return to base and refuel, where upon it can be commanded to extract you from another map click position selected by the player. They also allow for the possibility of an armed gunship escort for the taxi chopper.


Installation / Usage:
Once again the readMe that explains how it works is in the downloadable archive. My advice is to call the extraction chopper to the open area just in front of where you start the test mission. Then fire up the camera and watch the escort do its job before boarding the Taxi. Note both choppers and their crew have had their ability to be damaged disabled in the init.sqf in the test mission.

To use the camera scripts:
1. Start the camera in the action menu.
2. The "A" and "D" keys allow you to switch between camera targets.
3. The "W" and "S" keys allow you to switch between camera types - note: that for the "Top Down" Cam the mouse wheel allows you to zoom in and out and for the free camera you can use the right mouse button and the mouse wheel to rotate and zoom around your object of interest. Make sure you press near the centre of the screen to rotate the camera - press left of the centre and the cam will rotate to the left and if you press right of centre it rotates right, it works in a similar way for moving the camera up and down.
4. To go back into playable mode just press the "esc" key and the camera will stop.

How to implement in your own mission:
Read the included readme for detailed instructions.
