Maybe consider adding this. Could change up the gameplay a bit and is 100% customizable. Compatibility may be a small issue, but this script is easy to change around to fit the files and code correctly. The only issue I see happening is the HUD in the script conflicting with the AAS HUD.

The non HUD version is in A&S as well: heli lift.
An integration would be very simple.

That said it seems Toaster has no time whatsoever these days unfortunately.

Yeah, that's true. :-(

New Feature, new Exploit.

For Example by default the Scripts allows that a MH-6 can only carry a Hummer maximum. While hovering over a Hummer the according "Lift-Action" comes up. Now keep the Action-Menu-Active and hover over a Tusk, now select "Lift Hummer" and you get the Tusk instead. See the attached Video and Demo-Mission.

Any chance to fix it?

Looking into it.

Kinda seems like the detection of those vehicles (when the addAction is preformed) is a bit too large, and then too slow after releasing a vehicle.

Should be fixed with r676, thanks kju! Looks like the Original script was using always the latest vehicle right below the chopper and not that one that was triggered by the user-action.

Looks fine now. Added the Blackhawk to "Heavy-Chopper-Class" so both sides are on par AAS-wise, as we don't have Chinooks in Chernarus-Missions and never used the Osprey as well while the heavy rated Mi17 seems to be all around on Red. kju works on a fix to avoid that the "vehicleabandonedtimer" gets effective if you fly assets around for too long.
