Arma 3 - Altis map - UAV autopilot landing
New, NormalPublic

Description

On Altis map when ordering the UAV Greyhawk or Sentinel to land at a runway that is controlled by BLUFOR I have 2 problems:
1: If the only runway that is available is N of Selakano (id 3), the UAV will land on the Almyra Salt Flats (id 5) (and not on the ordered runway N of Selakano).
2: If the UAV is ordered to land at the central Airbase (id 0), it will land OK and taxi around a line up, but then it will create a line of parked UAV's on runway 22-R blocking the runway for Jet pilots.

  • Can you please modify the taxi route, so they line up on a separate taxiway instead, freeing up both runways for player traffic?

Hello.

Thank you for the report. This is a moded mission and not part of the vanilla game. Please contact the creator of this mission and let them know about the issue.

I already did that, and the mod'ders insist that the handling of UAV autopilot scripts are done by BI.

Please help

Thanks

According to
https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/landAt
1:
<UAV_x> landAt 3
should land the UAV at Selakano (quote: 3 = Selakeno Airfield) but it acts like
<UAV-x> landAt 5
and lands at 5 = Almyra Salt Lake Airstrip

2:
<UAV-x> landAt 0
Airbase (what I earlier called "FOB Guardian", which was a name invented in the MOD, but the runway is still the same).
