JATO Script for C130


This is a very simple JATO script, it creates jet assisted take off - actually rocket assisted take off.
It also features the reverse thing I call JASL (jet assisted short landing) inspired by Operation Credible Sport.

It works in single player, multiplayer and on dedicated server.
Things can get messy with multiple users / AI using it at the same time due to me not fully understanding the concept of variables/scopes in MP.
Sometimes the rockets might blow up so use at your own risk.

The parachute drop at the end of the burn time is fictional afaik. I just got carried away by my first success with scripting a little. Just ask me for a version without parachutes if necessary.
Someday I might make it into an actual mod with custom rockets attached to the plane properly.

Installation / Usage:
You can download an example MP mission with the scripts.
Otherwise, just dump the 3 scripts in you mission folder and either use the following syntax in the init line of your aircraft:
nul = [this] execVM "jato.sqf"
Or even better: use a trigger. This will allow you to easily reload the JATO System:
- Make a trigger, set it to <Activation Bluefor, Present, Repeatedly> and put this in its <Condition> line:
{typeof _x == "C130J"} count thislist >0 
Adjust the type of C130 you are using.
In its <On Act> field put this:
_xhandle = [(thislist select 0)] execVM "jato.sqf"; hint "JATO ready";

I got the script part how to speed the vehicle up from this thread
