Realistic Auto Pilots


Adds scirpt-based autopilot to all aircraft in a mission!

This mod will add 3 autopilots to every plane and helicopter.
Planes get:
- Altitude Hold (Good for circling)
- Altitude and Heading Hold (Good for waypoints)
- Path Hold (Good for climbing)
Choppers get:
- Altitude Hold (Constant altitude ABOVE SEA LEVEL)
- Attitude Hold (Keeps going the same direction)
- Position Hold (Like Auto-Hover, but realistic)

Only requires CBA to run!

To install Realistic Auto Pilots 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.

Included files:

If you are making a mission and wish to prevent a particular aircraft from having autopilot added, put this into the vehicles init:
this setVariable["hal_autopilot",false];

Fixed the mod not initializing due to an extra character in the code.

Added VTOL Position Hold (Thanks @martinez.fg11 for pointing it out)

- Fixed fixed-wing Altitude Hold and Altitude/Heading Hold.

- Pushed helicopter 'fixes' to airplanes

- Reworked the system for turning on/off different autopilots on all aircrafts.
- Reworked helicopter options so they will show even when you cannot engage them.
- Breath of fresh life into mod, should help provide lift.

Added Throttle Control Autopilot for planes
Fixed some bugs with AP on the ground (Namely, flying away, flying into the ground, or tilting up)

Fixed an issue which caused littlebirds and smaller aircraft to yaw themselves into the ground with Attitude Hold.
Rotary Altitude Hold now has more control over your collective (But only a reasonable amount)
Base Game A-10 now can use it's Altitude Holds properly. (This issue was caused by BIS giving it a 5 degree AoA which mean to fly level it had to pitch up so far the autopilot turned off.)

Rework of Position Hold and Attitude Hold for helicopters.

Added keybinds for autopilot modes in CBA Keybind section!
Helicopter Autopilot Update to follow!
