Attribute: Overwatch Beacon's Levitator
- Size: n/a (spawnable)

- Tri: 1,590
- LOD Tri: 134

- LOD Texture Size: 128x128
- Requirement: Natural Disasters DLC

Stats: Overwatch Beacon's Levitator
- Max Speed: 20
- Summary: Is exactly like Police Helicopter.

- Advance Vehicle Options (AVO) mod is needed to prevent normal police helicopters to spawn along with Levitators.
- The asset will consistently spawn numbers of flyers non-stop in a big city, be sure you can tolerate that.

Conceptual Notes
- Let the invasion begin!
- Due to no custom animation, it doesn't spin yet again.
- Overwatch Beacon has exact the same model as Overwatch (Park), but with the beacon base.
- Overwatch Beacon's Levitator is a smaller model of the Levitator (Plane or Park).

Known Issues
- Despite being 4x4, the ground may be forced flatten by the size of 12x12
- Despite not requiring electricity, they will not glow outside the city's electrical grid.

Special Thanks
- BloodyPenguin for the functioning mothership idea. I wished I made Overwatch before its the park version so I didn not have to upload the same models twice.
- SamsamTS for Advance Vehicle Options (AVO) mod.

Helicopter sound? Nah, it's the "Cryostorm' reactor core.

Who'd have thought that UFOs sounded like helicopters? :p

Great mod!

That's freaking cool man. And I really like it, saves space because those depots are huge.
