VS ACE Static Line Jump

by
Valice Studios


Description:
Static Line Jumps as they were meant to be: with ACE interaction!
Equip a parachute or have one spawn for you, ACE interact from any transport plane or helicopter, and JUMP!

Huge thank you to the collaborative effort from several folks in Blackwatch PMC in testing and development. This mod would not have the quality or functionality without you all.
Thank you also to commy2 for assisting DRTuned on r/ArmaDev with some initial questions integrating with ACE.

Main Features

-Compatible with ANY parachute mod, or vanilla parachutes
-Compatible with ALL fixed wing and rotary wing transports, from ANY mod (including RHS, CUP, USAF, IFA3)
-Multiplayer, Dedicated Server, JIP compatible

Additional Features
-CBA settings for requirement to be equipped and default parachute classname
-Backpack automatically moved onto chest if parachute is spawned for you
-Players must be in passenger seats
-Aircraft must be above 100m ATL before you can perform the jump after hooking up



Installation:
To install VS ACE Static Line Jump you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Known issues:
AI jumps work with some limitations. The jump has to be done manually for AI by calling the final static line jump script for each AI unit. AI pilots will try to land when this is called, so either a player pilot or a recorded flight path is recommended. AI pilots for player jumps work just fine.
AI jump functionality may be improved on in the future, but it's at the bottom of the list as of right now.

Known issues:
-Exiting the aircraft while "Standing" or "Hooked Up" won't reset the status of either, and you can re-enter the vehicle with the ability to hook up or static line jump once above 100m ATL
-Fire From Vehicle (FFV) seats like the door seats on a Blackhawk are technically 'crew', and do not allow you to static line jump from them


Future plans:
-Drop backpack to tether
-Chance of parachute failure (customizable through CBA)
-Buddy check and jump master gear check to reduce chance of failure
-"Stand Up" action will actually move player out of their seat to stand in the rear
-Multi-lingual support (Send us your translations!!! :D)
