Bugged heli? :([message #309373] Tue, 21 August 2012 13:07 Go to next message

Apparently Skyrider didn't go back to base after delivering my guys. The helicopter icon is on one of the sectors, when clicked the pilot keeps saying that he's running out of fuel and can't hover much longer. It's been like this for several days now, I tried walking in the sector where allegedly the heli is, nothing, there's obviously no helicopter landed in Drassen airfield, mercs can just walk on the helipad.

Help?

Would be helpful if you said which version of game (and mods if any).

AFAIK this bug is very old and stil exists in the 4870 and later versions. The problem is, that we do not know yet, what causes the problem. We are not able to reproduce the bug yet...

4870, no mods.

I'll try to trigger some events affecting the heli, ie. taking a SAM site, to check if it would reset it.

@ard: You can upload your savegame and I can fix the problem.

Here is the fixed savegame:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/34560718/SaveGame04.zip

EDIT: The flag that skyrider should return to base was set, but he got stuck. I don't know why it happened.
Do you know the actions before he got stucked?

IIRC he was tasked to deliver 2 mercs to the SAM site below Chitzena, after delivery I left him there, couple of "fuel messages" later he flew off. And got stuck, apparently.

Thanks for the save, it saves the boots of loot mules.

@RoWa:
Just taking a shot in the dark, but i'd suspect the code that IIRC Buggler added in r4724 to fix the exploit that allowed the heli to wait in his current sector without neither demanding payment nor running out of fuel. (that is unless you were certain that is bug is still older yet.)

I think it's not an exploit, when you click twice on the same sector the heli lands and stays on the ground. As fas as I know it's by design.

@all: I reverted the "exploit". I hope skyrider does not stuck anymore in the sector.

I don't think it was intended design. But anyway the discussion about this from the past started around here:
