Does your mother know what you are doing?


This looks to bring back some fond memories. Might have to check this out.

I'm really glad a lot of you are enjoying it.

If we ever get a proper Vietnam map I plan to make a similar mission synced to every Vietnam movie/YouTube video we can find, from Apocalypse Now to We Were Soldiers. If it has a Huey and decent voice acting, I want to rip it off.

Aside from that, I'm pretty much on hold until the F-16 comes out and I can finally finish the Iron Eagle campaign and cinematic feature. The Hornet makes a decent placeholder but it's not the same!

Wow what a great mission! Did a handful of tasks last night and really enjoyed them, flew back and parked up again at the helibase after calling it a night -this is the kind of stuff I would happily pay money for in a larger 'Campaign' pack. Quite liking the standard civilian Huey flying lately.

Would LOVE a Vietnam map/Huey missions! Also really looking fwd to the F-16 Viper release so will keep an eye out for your IE Campaign - I actually just dug up that movie and watched it again the other day for a laugh...those realistic Viper avionics lol.

This is by far the greatest DCS helo mission I've played. I'd love for it to keep expanding! It would be cool to have some randomly generated missions too so I can just keep going forever lol. But super fun and I played the shit out of simcopter so nostalgic too.

Curiously where the dispatch and police comms from real events? They sounded good enough to be.

Sim-ply excellent work, Squirrel! The mission is very immersive and recalls a lot of fond SimCopter memories. Two thumbs up!

HI, this is an awesome set of missions. Is there a way to add different music?

Thanks,

Cindy (HQ) and the paramedics were generated using Google's text-to-speech.

The Hot Pursuit mission was taken from this video.

The carnival mission was pulled from this video.

Crazy Uber Lady came from this video.

Not easily unless you're familiar with the mission editor.

In short, you'll need to convert your music to .OGG, then load up the mission editor and replace all the entries with your music. I suppose you could just open the .miz file with something like WinRAR and replace my .OGG with your .OGG as long as they're titled identically. Might be confusing but I suspect it'd be the easiest way.

Very cool, I hope to see more. Especially another civil helo mission around Dubai. I never realized how good it feels to fly around a big city and do.. well big city stuff!

I think it would be cool to add a few more scripted missions and maybe throw in an option to select random missions similar to Dubai Dispatch.

If you made a new mission entirely one focused around Dubai police operations would be pretty cool! I've seen lots of SAR and air ambulance missions but police missions are few and far between it seems.

Help My Simcopter is broken!

Since the 2.5.6 update, I'm getting this error upon loading

This would have been a great mission to enjoy new bright lights. Anyone else getting this error?
