SP & MP Compatible. Full replacement for in-game sling loading.
Ropes can no longer attach automatically! You need to either get out of your helicopter or have someone on the ground pick up your cargo ropes and attach them to an object.
Helicopters support up to 3 sets of cargo ropes, depending on the size of the heli.
Once cargo ropes are deployed, any player can go to the end of the rope and pick it up.
Once the ropes are picked up by a player, they can be attached to pretty much every object in the game.
Players can drop ropes if they're carrying them
Players on the ground can detached ropes from an object
Helicopters can lift heavy vehicles
