Hook waypoint
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The "HOOK" waypoint, can be used correctly in the editor, but it's not working if used with setWayPointType command(Scripted way).


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  • Create a vehicle ( veh1 )
  • Create an helicopter with crew in it ( hooker )

_group1 = group hooker;
_wp1 = _group1 addWaypoint [veh1,0];
_wp1 waypointAttachVehicle veh1;
_wp1 setWaypointType "HOOK";

The helicopter will simply stops in mid air near the vehicle,without hooking it.

thank you for the feedback.

I have tried to use the repro steps you have provided and it seems to work just fine using Huron + Hunter. When using the Slammer instead of Hunter, I observed the issue you are referring to, however this is correct since it's too heavy for the Huron.
Might this be it?

Hi,thank you for the answer.
Actually I was trying to use a taru and an ifrit,and then tried with Huron + Ifrit,with no luck.
This is the mission i'm using

But , as it seems,the issue is only related to some kind of errror on my side.

Sorry for opening this uselessly.

I used the repro steps provided and tried Taru + Ifrit, seems to work fine.

If you find anything that might be relevant to the case and help me reproduce the issue, please let me know.

Its a problem with the "createVehicleCrew" command.
better do not use it, or do it like this:

heli = createVehicle ["B_Heli_Transport_03_F",getpos cargo vectoradd [-100,-100,40],[],0,"FLY"];
createVehicleCrew heli;
heligroup = group driver heli;

{moveout _x; _x moveInAny heli} foreach units heligroup;

_wp = heligroup addWaypoint [cargo,0];
_wp waypointAttachVehicle cargo;
_wp setWayPointType "HOOK";
