Default Precision landing practice. A single player mission.

So I just finished up building my first mission ever, and decided to share it with you all because it ended up being fun and challenging.

You start at a FARP outside Sochi, and are tasked with flying to and landing on an offshore oil rig. After taking on cargo on the oil rig, you proceed north into Sochi, and land on a high rise to pick up some soldiers. You will have to land on the tallest part of the building. Be careful not to crush the soldiers. After landing without killing anyone, land on the deck of the Oliver Hazzard Perry to offload your cargo and the soldiers. Then fly back to the FARP to complete the mission.

In order to keep things interesting, It takes place at dawn on a stormy day. There is a 5 knot wind and some turbulence. Because you will be either very lightly loaded, or very heavily loaded, you will find handling dramatically different between landings. It's tricky, but not impossible!

This mission gives text prompts to tell you what to do, flares and smoke markers to mark landing areas, and failure/victory conditions. The helicopter doors and windows also open and close.

If you have suggestions, comments, or bugs, please tell me!

I am intrigued I made several missions attempting to evacuate units from roof tops and failed. Will try to play this in the next couple of days. Thank you

Well, with troop transport currently broken, it's actually just a trick to simulate it.

When you meet the landing conditions the group of soldiers are de-activated, and weight is added to the helicopter, simulating them getting on. If the mission was transporting them to another building, I could have another group of soldiers hidden at the landing point. When the trigger condition is met, the soldiers are activated, and the weight is removed from the copter. The ship landing made it to hard to try making the soldiers appear again.

I got the idea from a guy called Belgeode on youtube.

Love the mission. It puts great effort on the pilot to make sure we don't squish one of the soldiers... which I might of done..
