How to make the tanker refuel itself?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set up a mission and the thing I am struggling with is when the tanker is low on gas I would like him to fly to an airport, refuel then take off and resume the orbit as before. I have tried to have the option at waypoint two were the tanker will RTB on bingo. That part works fine, he flies to waypoint three (which is the landing waypoint) at waypoint three he has the command "refueling" then waypoint 4 is in the air just off the runway. At that Waypoint, I used the command switch to waypoint 1. All I've gotten is RTB then he goes and parks, at which point he shuts down and the crew jumps out.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

AI units can not land and takeoff again. Consider maybe spawning a unit on or above the runway a few minutes after the tanker lands?

Use an event onlanding or something to spawn a new tanker that takes up the old one's patrol.

Hmm that's a little silly, maybe we should have a thread devoted to adding improved AI functionality to allow this...

if you need help setting this up. I will happily show you how to create triggers to spawn a new tanker when the 1st needs to land.

 

we do this on our training maps and have tankers airborne 24/7
