Not bad  :D

One thing I noticed. Once you're in the plane, theres no way to get out without plumbeting 3000m to your bloody death  ;)

I didn't include a parachute part cause I want to make it all one big script.  So its more or less still developing.  

But if you run something like this out of an action you should be good: unitname addaction ["Halo","parachute.sqs"]
Quote
_man = _this select 0
_man switchmove "Para"


#loop
? (getPos _man select 2) < 100: goto "open"

? _pos < 100 : goto "open"
~0.5
goto "loop"

#open
_man switchmove ""
_man setbehaviour "aware"
_para = "parachuteG" camCreate[(getPos _man select 0), (getPos _man select 1), (getPos _man select 2) + 1]
_man moveindriver _para
_man removeaction 0
exit

That should save you.

I updated the attachment to include the parachute.   ;)

Be sure to not click on the action if your still in the plane.  It wigs out and just puts you on the ground.  But if you fall out the back and then click the action you will land nice and safe.

Lots still to work on here folks,

Nice work Blip,
i did this a while ago but held the plane up with pallets  :D it worked well, but i couldnt sort out the parachute thing cos im no good at scripting.
glad someone better than me has thought of the same idea, thats what i'd like to see in OFP2, a better physics engine so you can do this while its going along  :)
If you havent played ofp you havent lived

@Silent Sniper

I've used the pallets as well, although I had them in place to form a more stable walkway for the player to move around in on the plane.  

I am working on trying to incorporate having more troops being able to be passed through the script.  Basically, I want to be able to take forty guys in the back of the C130, who are sitting down in seats, and have them one by one get positioned standing in the C130 and then run out the back followed by the next guy in line.  

Still don't know about the setvelocity out the back of the plane, but will continue to look into it.  Would be cool to get shot out the back.

Alright, I think I got all the kinks worked out.  Somebody give this a try and let me know if you have any problems before I submit it to the depot.

New scripts include up to five units possible.  Also uses HAWK's newer C130.  Player must pull his own rip cord and has his own altimeter.

Check first post for links.

Thank you for testing!

okay then the c130 seems to be the same asthe other i think, anyway when you get put in the plane you gradually sink through the floor then just fall out without touching anything ? also it seems so slow once youve opeined your chute you kind of hover for a few seconds then fall really really slowly plus theres a ahint saying to open it around 100-200 i think i opened it about 30 and survived
but still not bad

Very nice set of scripts, im going to make a mission using these.

The only downside is having the plane not moving really.

Good work!

Thanks for testing the scripts!

@456820
I have also on occasion gotten the sinking through the bottom of the plane.  The only conclusions I have come to is that the computer has a hard time running the script.  In other words its not fast enough to handle keeping the plane in the setpos loop.  As it is, I have to run this on my brother's computer to get it to work because on mine I fall through the floor like you described.

As for the parachute opening, the hint can be taken out if you dig throught the scripts a little.  I put it there as a recommendation, your right you can survive an opening at a much lower height.

@Jimboob
I agree the plane not moving is a downside however you could have it fly for awhile and then go into the call the scripts as opposed to calling them in the init.sqs, just a thought.

NOTE: The plane tends to very jumpy over water.  Not sure why, but I recommend using the scripts only over land.  Try it and you will see what I mean.  Some spots on the map are just better than others.

Thanks Again,
