Realistic Auto Pilots

Description
Adds a scirpt-based autopilot to all aircraft in a mission for clients running the mod!
Have you ever wanted to be able to actually scan the ground for a target while your plane makes sure you don't die? Well now you can with this simple-to-use autopilot mod!



This mod will add 4 autopilots to every plane and helicopter.
Planes and VTOLs get:
  • Altitude Hold (Good for circling)
    • Turns off when pitch is ± 7.5° OR bank is ± 60°
  • Altitude and Heading Hold (Good for waypoints)
    • Turns off when pitch is ± 7.5° OR bank is ± 10° OR heading is ± 5° from target heading
  • Path Hold (Good for climbing)
    • Turns off when pitch is ± 10° from target OR bank is ± 10°
  • Automatic Throttle Control (Holds speed)
    • Turns off when pilot changes throttle
VTOLs get:
  • Position Hold (Like Auto-Hover, but realistic and now for VTOLs)
    • Turns off when pitch is ± 15° OR bank is ± 15° OR you are going too fast OR you turn on auto-vectoring
    • Enters STBY when reciving input from pilot on any directional controls (Cyclic, Collective, Yaw Pedals)
Choppers get:
  • Altitude Hold (Constant altitude ABOVE SEA LEVEL)
    • Does not automatically turn off
  • Attitude Hold (Hold vector and direction)
    • Turns off when pitch is ± 60° OR bank is ± 70° OR velocity is below 15
  • Position Hold (Like Auto-Hover, but realistic)
    • Turns off when pitch is ± 15° OR bank is ± 15° OR you are going too fast
    • Enters STBY when reciving input from pilot on any directional controls (Cyclic, Collective, Yaw Pedals)
  • Heading Hold (Keeps you aimed one way)
    • Turns off when bank is ± 10° OR heading is ± 5° from target heading OR too close to ground (5m)
    • Enters STBY when cyclic is held left/right, when yaw is held, or when notable collective input is given.

Autopilot notes
  • The autopilot will turn itself off if certain criteria are met (Depending on which mode you are using)
  • Helicopter autopilot will (Depending) go to standby mode if you maneuver, at which point it will hold the new values once the maneuver is complete. (For instance, breaking the position hold and then entering another hover smoothly will not stop the autopilot but will rather set it to standby while you fly between positions)
  • A main thing to note is you have to get the aircraft moving steadily before attempting to turn on the autopilot. The autopilot is not a magical pilot who can fly for you, it just lets you focus on targets or instruments rather than focusing on the flying of the aircraft itself.

If you are making a mission and wish to prevent a particular aircraft from having autopilot added, put this into the vehicles init:
this setVariable["hal_autopilot",false];
This mod is client-sided, meaning the server does not need to run any additional mods to support it, but it must allow the client to use the mod.

Only requires CBA to run!

The mod SHOULD work with all aircraft and modded aircraft, as long as the mod lists them as aircraft. I'm not sure why the AC-130U wouldn't work in particular, do the other aircraft in the mod work?

Does this work with USAF mod aircraft? The Alt Hold doesn't seem to work with the AC-130U

No, the only differentiation is between helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Autopilots can be disabled per-plane and/or per-mode

Hi, I just wanna ask, does Realistic Auto function historically appropriate for the aircrafts during the vietnam war or ww2?
doc Mar 26 @ 8:39am 
cant use it at all in a practical sense. i've read your instructions and anytime at any reasonable velocity, my planes will bob up and down

如果您正在执行任务,并且希望阻止某架飞机添加自动驾驶仪,请将其放入vehicles init中:
此设置变量[“hal_autopilot”,false];
这个mod是客户端的,这意味着服务器不需要运行任何额外的mod来支持它,但它必须允许客户端使用mod。
只需要CBA才能运行!

自动驾驶仪注释
如果满足某些条件,自动驾驶仪将自动关闭(取决于您使用的模式)如果进行机动,直升机自动驾驶仪将(视情况而定)进入待机模式,在该模式下,一旦机动完成,自动驾驶仪将保持新值。(例如,打破位置保持,然后平稳地进入另一个悬停不会停止自动驾驶仪,而是会在您在位置之间飞行时将其设置为待机状态)需要注意的一点是,在尝试打开自动驾驶仪之前,必须让飞机平稳地移动。自动驾驶仪不是一个能为你飞行的神奇飞行员,它只是让你专注于目标或仪器,而不是专注于飞机本身的飞行。

直升机:
高度保持(高于海平面的恒定高度)
不会自动关闭
姿态保持(保持向量和方向)
当节距为±60°或气缸组为±70°或速度低于15°时关闭
位置保持(类似自动悬停,但真实)
当俯仰角为±15°或倾斜角为±15°或速度过快时关闭
在任何方向控制装置(循环、集合、偏航踏板)上接收到来自飞行员的输入时,进入STBY
航向保持(保持单向瞄准)
当倾斜距离目标航向±10°或航向距离目标航向±5°或离地面太近(5m)时关闭
当保持左/右循环、保持偏航或给出显著的集体输入时,进入STBY。

该模块将为每架飞机和直升机增加4个自动驾驶仪。
平面和VTOL可获得:
高度保持(适于盘旋)
当节距为±7.5°或气缸组为±60°时关闭
高度和航向保持(适用于航路点)
当俯仰为±7.5°或倾斜为±10°或航向为目标航向±5°时关闭
小径保持(适合攀爬)
当俯仰距离目标±10°或倾斜角度±10°时关闭
自动油门控制(保持速度)
当飞行员改变油门时关闭
VTOLs获取:
位置保持(类似于自动悬停,但真实,现在适用于VTOL)
当俯仰角为±15°或倾斜角为±15°时关闭,或者速度过快或打开自动矢量控制时关闭
在任何方向控制装置(循环、集合、偏航踏板)上接收到来自飞行员的输入时,进入STBY

Nice one! Thank you :)
