Default Sling Loads and cables are incredibly fragile since a few patches ago(Mi-8MTV2 patch)

We use sling loading extensively on our server and you use to be able to pickup sling loads without issue, now if you lift off incredibly slow, you STILL break the cable or damage the crate, its incredibly frustrating. if normal sling loading success rate was 100%, its about 30% currently.

This started happening around the time the big Mi-8MTV2 update came (door gunners and more crate models). They should not be THAT fragile!

I tried to sling a HMMV today. Lifted it just fine. Climbed in a hover to 40 meters, and began move forward. At 40 km/h the rope snapped and the 20 meter fall destroyed the crate. A second attempt at a speed of 25 km/h was more successful, but the crate was still damaged even though the decent was painfully slow at about 50m/min. I have to agree with Drexx, sling-loading is much harder now than it use to be, and ropes and crates are far too fragile.

i found that if you are using the default rope length, it's fine, but anything shorter and it breaks like crystal.
