Heli Orbit Plugin - Spotlight, PoliceSmartRadio, Traffic Stop Assistance 1.3.8

About This File

This mod simulates the flight patterns of Southern California (more specifically, Los Angeles area) law enforcement air support helicopters. That is, they will orbit around a target entity or position instead of just hovering above. A spotlight will track the subject when night-time. This plugin will take control of the pursuit heli if in a pursuit, otherwise you may call for a backup heli anytime while on-duty. Such as, during a (felony) traffic stop or during a shootout. If you call the heli at random, then it will orbit around the player for a set amount of time.


Switch between gameplay camera and heli cam (pilot viewpoint) at the press of a button.

 

A Must-Have For Realistic, Los Angeles-Style Gameplay!

 

 

 

Make sure to put HeliOrbitPlugin.dll and HeliOrbitPlugin.ini into \Plugins\LSPDFR folder.

 

This mod is partly integrated with Arrest Manager by @Albo1125 for better heli cam switching technique when grabbing a ped.

Take a look at the INI at least once to make sure you are satisfied with the settings.

Another wonderfully simple mod that adds a ton to the game. Thank you! It's quick, responsive, and just plain cool. My only wish is that I could set the distance for the helicopter to spawn. To me, I would like to further that distance by a bit to make it just a little more realistic. On traffic stops where I request a polmav, it's a little off-putting to have one show up within a couple seconds of the request.

Brilliant, thank you very much, it is a real pleasure to call an air support, I recommend him strongly ... is it possible to decrease the speed of the copter and, the small detail, to return the precision of the beam of light less perfectly to calibrate on its target to see a little all around?

Awesome plugin, adds a great level of realism.  

 

One suggestion I'd have is to have an option to tie it into custom backup and/or include a provision to allow different police helicopters based on area.  For instance, RDE has different police helicopters for Los Santos, Los Santos County, Blaine County, SAHP, and several federal helicopters.  Having an LSPD helicopter spawn in Blaine County doesn't look right.

I have waited for a decade for this flight behavior to happen in a Law Enforcement game and the day has come. This plugin reinvents the wheel and has stepped up the level when it comes to LEO role-play. This is not only seen in California, but around the world too. Gone are the days of looking up in the sky and wondering if the pilot is an amateur 12 year old make a wish foundation pilot, or a professional LE pilot. 5 stars from me. Thank you !

An essential mod for roleplaying, which brings a new level of immersion to LSPDFR.
Being able to have a different point of view during pursuits or other situations on patrol is such a great addition.

 

I highly recommend this mod to fully experience LSPDFR for it's full potential.

I have now tested this mod for a couple of hours. It really enhances the feeling when you're in a pursuit and call in air support. My favorite part is when the suspects bail out and the choppers circle around them and I know the suspects are in the center of the spotlight. It's a must have for me now. Thanks for the good work in this mod!

What more can I say?  So many others have said it already in many different ways.  I love this mod and I find myself hoping for a reason to use it more often.  It is so simple and lightweight but it adds so much in terms of realism and roleplaying to the game.

Nice script (err, plugin). Works as stated. Maybe adding or creating an option for police-radio would be neat. Other than that, good job!
