drawLine3D does not render when looking through cockpit glass of MH-9, and AH-9, but will when looking out side door openings, only when complete line of sight between object and player is made. drawline3d _WILL_ render properly through glass in Ka-60 and Hunter.

still relevant as of the latest dev build. no change in details

As of beta this only applies to the AH-9 and MH-9. All other helicopters render drawline3d through glass

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.

If this issue is still relevant in current dev build, please re-post.

issue persists. quick repro:

  • open editor with Virtual Reality terrain
  • place a (player) unit
  • start scenario
  • paste code into console:
player moveInDriver ("B_Heli_Light_01_F" createVehicle [0, 0, 0]);
addMissionEventHandler ["Draw3D", {
    private _from = [0, 25, 0];
    for "_j" from 0 to 360 step 10 do {
        private _to = [25 * sin _j, 25 * cos _j, 0];

        for "_i" from 0 to 2 step 0.2 do {
            _from set [2, _i];
            _to set [2, _i];
            drawLine3D [_from, _to, [1, 0, 1, 1]];

        _from = _to;
  • you're in a helicopter now. look sideways, out of the open cockpit side. observe pink lines surrounding you... that vanish straight where the cockpit window begins.
