I think you do. Never tried it myself but I do remember someone using it with mouse clicks

@Benchmark is there a way that i can just click on the stuff instead of having a keybind for them
Benchmark Jun 13 @ 1:21pm 
Check the comment below yours, then download the new version, get into the game and check keybinds of the Hornet.
Good luck

Anyone know if there is a function for auto pilot landing on the USS Freedom? The bis_fnc_aircraftTailhookai and bis_fnc_aircraftTailhook don't appear to work with this mod.
