Sling Load Rigging


Custom load rigging and attaching of helicopter sling loads.

Requires ACE

Set lifting points for objects not configured for sling loading
Use Forward and Aft cargo hooks on Huron, Mohawk, and RHS and CUP Chinook and Super Stallion
Attach multiple cargo objects to a single cargo hook
Use multiple cargo hooks to secure a Dual-point load
Adjust length of cargo sling legs
Experience more reliable MP sling loading thanks to localizing cargo to helicopter

To install Sling Load Rigging 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:

Basic Usage
Get a Cargo Sling item from the nearest helicopter or the Arsenal.
Go up to a cargo object and use the ACE actions under Rig for Sling Load to prepare the load.
Once the sling is rigged up, you will be holding the Apex Fitting (the part that goes in the cargo hook). If you drop it, you can pick it up again.
Holding the apex fitting, get it near a cargo hook, and use Attach Cargo to hook on.
In the helicopter, crew may use ACE action or CBA keybind to Release Cargo.

Advanced Usage
After the cargo is rigged up to either a cargo sling or a helicopter, use Adjust Rigging to adjust the length of the sling legs, either all together (simply scroll), or singly (look at lift point and scroll).

If you hold the Apex Fitting and try to move further from the cargo than the ropes allow, you will drop the Apex Fitting.

When hooking up a single cargo to multiple cargo hooks, the slings after the first one won't appear connected to the cargo! Don't worry, they will connect to the helicopter once you Attach Cargo.

Enable rigging on almost anything!
_cargo setVariable ["amp_slingload_isRiggingEnabled", true, true];

Script custom sling points on your cargo.
_cargo setVariable ["amp_slingload_liftPoints", [[x1,y1,z1], [x2,y2,z2]...], true];
