UAV Refit

by
Fat_Lurch


Description:
This mod gives the UAV operator the ability to command the UAV to Return To Base (RTB) for a refit where it will be repaired, rearmed and refueled.

To command the RTB, open the UAV terminal, connect to the UAV and hit the RTB for Refit button.

This system only supports one UAV at a time right now.

Concept:
This works by the UAV flying to a configurable position (0,0 by default) and then "exiting" the Area of Operations (AO).

The aircraft despawns and then reappears after being refit a configurable time later (30 minutes by default).

This is intended to simulate the UAV flying back to a base or FARP outside the AO. This will allow UAVs to be useful on maps without airfields, or in areas where the airfield is contested.


Installation:
To install UAV Refit 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:
UAV_Refit.pbo


Usage:
To configure the spot where the aircraft leaves the AO and how long the refit takes, copy the code below into the init.sqf of your mission and modify them as appropriate.

UAVRefitTime = 30; //Time in minutes it takes for the UAV to be refit and return to the area of operations
UAVRefitPos = [0,0,3000]; //Position where the UAV departs and re-enters the AO


Multiplayer:
This addon works in Single player and on dedicated server (I assume MP also).
The addon needs to run on both clients and the server (the server is responsible for bringing the UAV back, that way if someone orders a refit and they log off, the plane still comes back)
