Cannot leave vehicle running after exiting
Reviewed, NormalPublic


Sometimes I want to leave a vehicle running even when exiting. Main example is a chopper when I return to base for ammunition. I just want to jump out and grab some ammo but leave the chopper running cuz it takes so long to fire up. In Arma 2 you could get out leaving the engine running. This is why there is a command to shut off the engine. This left the option of not shutting it off.

switching off the motor should not happen automatically when exiting a vehicle.

makes things more flexible

Getting out turns off the engine, ejecting does not. The problem here seems to be that they haven't added the eject functionality to any air vehicle.

Feature to eject from helicopters and thus leaving the engine running will be added in future versions.

Thank you for your time.
