It should be rewritten almost from scratch, since:
- we don't need parachute steering as there's BI steerable parachute
- we need parachute helper script so player and AI don't get stuck when landing on curved terrain
- parachute handler should be fired from init eventhandler, so the script won't break after loading saved game and we can handle it better (use animations when empty driver's position count > 0)
- parachute weapon model should be bugproof - currently it induces weird errors, probably model config is missing
- ejections should work as they do now, but AI ejection script has to be working as the player's one
- we should use UserActions more frequently, since action scripting is pain in ass.
I guess that a kind of "ejection manager" launched via new eject EH could carry every man's ejection and check/apply variables to him.

BIS steerable chute = RAS_parachute. Nice try zGuba :D

Elaborate parachute helper a bit more, please.

What is wrong with the "parachute model" ?

UserActions should only be used for hardcoded systems, IMO ejecting and parachuting does not count to them.

Parachute weapon model - ACE_Parachute/Round/Pack model is often treated badly within ARMA, just like Javelin used to be.

Parachute helper is now working for player in A.C.E. - it ejects driver when low enough, makes him go prone, waits 2 seconds and vanishes parachute so it's not going stuck in some cases. Just that little.

Hmm, ace_sys_eject from ace1 already disables BI Eject useraction.

This still current after all your work Rocky?

The eject and jumpout parts of the system should be same as ACE1 in current ACE2.

Only the scripts for "controlling" the different parachutes may differ.

Updated by th3flyboy over 7 years ago

It should be noted that actually ejecting (not doing something like a HALO jump) would use a T-10 parachute. MC-5s are usually restricted to special forces doing HALO or HAHO jumps.
