Description

Nice work, but the length of the rope for fast-roping should be set to standard lengths of max XXm/XXft. my finds so far are max lengths of about 10-40m (50-120ft). This is whole rope length, without the needed slack of few meters/feets on the ground.
Everything else is too dangerous and the unit would surely switch to (fast)rappelling for any heights above that. Apart from there is no source for longer fast-roping ropes on the market than ca. 40m/120ft.
(Not that fast-roping from 10m isn't any safer ;) )

Just checked the code and the max height for deploying ropes is already set at 40 metres, min 10 metres. I think someone on the VBS2 forums may have said something similar so thats why its set-up that way. Anyway I 'll do some checking a change if needed.

Splendid, i just thought about it when i saw that community video of it and the roping height looked darn high, but maybe that was just the perspective of the videoshot. Anyway good work!
