As the english is not my native language, i'm a little confused with the different posts that i've seen about the paradrop.
So i write what i would want to have, and maybe someone will explain to me with simple words how to do or what script to use.

I would want that soviet soldiers (or german or american soldiers) are dropped since a Li2 (or one another plane if it's in IFR-A2).
I know that the players can't go into the Li2 (except the pilot and the gunner) ; so i think that it will use a flag for the teleportation, and the players would be teleported near a Li2 and their parachute would open).

Is it possible ? Does it already exist ?

I think there are some of these scripts outside.

I did some scripts while testing your @Geist textures. (You stopped this?)
One was to paradrop FSJ.

here is a part out of it:
//    Usage: nul = [_start_marker, dir, height, drop_marker, end_marker] execVM "bs_scripts\Spawn_FSJ_Plane.sqf";

//  Options :
//    Start_Marker    : Position where the plane should start it's flight
//    Dir                : Direction the plane should face to when it spawns
//    Height            : Height above ground the plane should paradrop the soldiers
//    Drop_Marker        : Position where the plane should paradrop the soldiers
//    End_Marker        : Position where the planes should be removed from map
//
//    Examples: nul = ["Plane_Start", 20, 200,"Drop_Point","Plane_End"] execVM "bs_scripts\Spawn_FSJ_Plane.sqf";

Seems you 'just' want to paradrop soldiers, no special uniforms this time.
I think it should be possible to convert my scripts to your above wishes
if you can't find something else you like.
Let me know.

Nice picture. [smile]

I would like to paradrop players who embody soldiers with textures (Fallschirmjäger, american or soviet paratroopers) since a plane (actually Li2 in Iron Front; Junkers and others in IFR-A2 ?) during TvT games.
The players would choose the moment of the paradrop, and the "localization" of this paradrop.
the plane would be piloted by another player.

I know, i ask a lot...





PS :
No, i didn't stop @GEIST. I continue slowly.
You are always interested ?

I'm not sure if I understand it right:
You want to fly inside a plane as a player (co pilot)
and look out of that plane to find a good location to jump out?
And if you jump, a (not real existing) group should spawn and paradrop like you out the plane then?
Can't say if I could make such a script, or adapt my existing one for it. It sounds so much different as I made this one.

But the idea sound good so far.
Joarius, it would need a lot of  time to make this script(s) step by step
and make them workable then.

Possible someone else here own a script for this already or could do one?
Anyone?

@Geist
yes, I'm  interested, in every stuff, always.
I wonder why you removed the download for this one. Someone took your work and 'sold' it as his own? I know that [smile]
BTW: in the past some ppl here asked about @Geist but didn't found the download link anywhere.

Not me absolutly. It would be a player who will play a pilot. But it would be a Human player, and not an AI.

As in the reality : the pilot give the "GO !" when he thinks it's the good position.

As the IL2 doesn't allow to have passengers, the others players, who would play paratroopers, would wait near a flag (by example) ; when the pilots give the "GO !", the players teleport themself near the IL2 and are dropped as the paratroopers are dropped from a plane.

It's not an urgency, BS [wink] : it's just an idea that i have and that would be nice to use in TvT and Multiplayer.



@GEIST : i have mp you.
The politics of our team is changed, but i don't give GEIST publicly for anyone : i want a minimal of "discussion" whith the people who asks it.

You can test this and see if it suits you.
