Needing "manual" to fix choppers.


Recommended Posts

  • Emerald

I was thinkig about adding a "manual" that is needed to fix a helicopter since a random survivor doesnt instantly know how to fix a chopper. A helicopter is one of the best things you can get ingame. You can easily find cars, tents and players while using a helicopter and i think i should be alot harder to get one ready to fly! And because of the KOS rule on this server (and TP for refueling as of now) its really easy to keep a chopper in the air!

Name ingame: "manual"

Lootspawn: "In a airport control tower"

How rare: "Extremly to very rare"

Will be needed for: "fixing parts on the heli, except for windscreen and refueling"

Let me know what you think. (negative and supportive)

Good idea, but there is google and youtube, but great idea otherwise and I don't see any other problems.

Yeah but it will help with the realism of the character you have ingame. Me for one dont know anything about fixing a chopper!

Also in rp perspective.

This is possible, However i don't know if you should make fixing choppers harder considering they only spawn about once a month limiting who can use it if they do happen to be lucky and find one.

I agree that its rare, but its still the most epic weapon/vehicle in the game as of now!

Just saying with the zombie damage going up you will die ALOT more therefore will lose this if you ever find it pretty fast..

Fair point! But the zombies will still be buggy and its easy to hide from them/ losing them (buildings, bushes, trees etc)

If that is fixed i might change my mind.

You will have a hard time hiding when they kill you in 7 hits :P

Kill them while you are in the tree? Always works. And the zombies arent that smart either so you can wait until they spread out before you go (if you do not have a gun)


Funny enough I think this would make it easier to keep a chopper. Just damage it and the number of people that can fly it drops dramatically in addition to the fuel leaking. 7 hit zombies sounds scary..

Yes, but we still need to understand that choppers are extremely over powered on this server and otherwise! You can easily find camps with cars and tents! And because of the KOS rule on this server its pretty easy to keep a chopper in the air!

There are hardly ever any helicopters on the server.. Now the little birds are gone....

I also thing this is kind of under estimating the difficulty of other tasks in the game. Maybe your character should have to go to medical school to be able to medic. Repairing cars is tough too. And using military grade weapons. And running for hours on end.

1.7.5 patch. when you use a blood bag you have a chance to get an infecton. Epi-pen has a instruction on the side of it. Bandages i guess you should know how to use. Painkillers has instructions on the side. But i agree with you that the healing system isnt perfect. Should be some changes in that too. The manual can also be used in the car problem! Adding a manual for choppers and one for vehicles. Also i think people have more common knowledge of how to fix cars than helicopters.

If I'm correct, the game is designed as if a veteran washed up on shore. This could have been a misunderstanding on my part though.

That would allow for basic knowledge as a generic soldier in terms of first aid, weapon expertise, etc.

Regardless of your point, he is trying to balance the perks of owning a helicopter with the requirements of obtaining one, which I think is a good idea.

The chopper repair manual could be as rare as, say, NVGS and spawn in air control towers. The land and sea vehicle repair manual could be as rare as a camping tent and spawn in supermarkets and industrial sites (I'm imagining car magazines at the stores counter before the infection).

Rocket says he is going to add some element of skill progression that isn't number based. Like if you do a lot of medicing, you get better at it and have special skills that a mechanic specialist wouldn't have in medicine. Should be interesting depending how he goes with it. This idea is a simple way to implement that kind of philosophy.
