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.
