Adding parking service on the carrier?

« posted: May 23, 2017, 04:27 PM »
Players on my server suggest a parking point be put on the carrier so that they can store their planes right after landing, which can prevent their planes from getting destroyed accidentally or intentionally by other teammates.

I know how to add parking service into existing Land_i_Shed_Ind_F. But there isn't one on the carrier. How can I add a parking point on the carrier?

That's a good idea, I'll take care of it.

Should be good now.

It seems that the retrieved planes spawned on the carrier are not able to roll out. No matter what level the throttle is set to, the speed indicator always shows a red 0, as shown in the attached screenshot.

The "Push plane backward" action is missing, too. You need tow it to a truck and then untow it to fix it.

I just tried it on dedi, everything works fine. I don't even know what's with the red speed, I have never seen that before, mine has been white forever.

Also your game got a weird-ass font, I have never seen this either.

This happens on Altis. I just merged the Altis commits and copied the two newly added markers from the Stratis mission to the Altis one.

Can it be that part of the wheels are stuck into the carrier deck? I'll try to re-adjust the position of the spawn marker.

I think the status bar was kindly shared by @CREAMPIE?

There are two status bar addons knocking about, one from EPOCH and one from Exile all have been mangled to work with wasteland.

I don't think it has to do with wheels, I manually stuck mine under deck and the plane could still move a bit. The spawning height has nothing to do with the marker, it uses the player height.

For the font, I'm not talking about the status bar, but everything else, like the territory text, and the targeting camera. There's like Chinese characters and stuff.

Have you tried giving the plane a gentle push with a tank?

Ok so the red speed means the plane is stalling in flight. This makes no sense because the screenshot plane is not in flight.

Can you send me your SQM?

Ah, that particular player is using a Chinese language pack. I will have a player try pushing the plane and report back.

I was testing those new jets today and I decreased speed to 0 on the sky. Plane began stalling and after that it wasn't able to gain any speed even though throttle was 100. So my guess is that there is some kind of bug in jets now or something..

I just changed it so parking retrieval spawns vehicle slightly above ground, report back if it does it again.

The issue remains. The link for the sqm has been sent to your PM
