Adding pilot altitude hold for planes
« on: 02 02, 2021, 11:32:43 pm »
Hello there, there is this utility that I am introducing today, it's just due to role-play and a utility for civilians. This script will make a job like Pilot a bit more fun and interesting, and it absolutely doesn't promote any laziness and it doesn't make a job like Pilot an AFK job.

This script fixes your altitude while flying, you won't go up anymore like you currently do e.g. While flying an andromada, the plane goes up and you have to spend a lot of effort to keep it stable and pointing forward, but with the feature I am suggesting, it will keep your vehicle pointing at a fixed point and it's really fun to rely on a feature like altitude hold for a job like Pilot.

This can also help making neat stunts, beautiful scenes and videos and it's not exploit-able at all. It also has minimum speed restrictions for the feature to work, and it depends on each plane.

Current supported planes are: Andromada, Dodo, Stuntplane, Shamal, Hydra, Beagle, AT-400 and Nevada

Going to support the idea. It can be useful for the Pilot job (won't have to keep fixing the plane's altitude), could possibly make some stunts out of it or showoff with it, and even pilots in real life have such things as well.
I'm going to have to agree with Denos: "I stand with Goku & Coolit. Gave years of their lives to keep CIT active and happy. Screwed over and unjustly kicked."

This can be useful, better than trying to maintain a plane's altitude most of the time, AT-400 plane might be the hardest to fly (in my honest opinion and experience) maintaining its altitude not easy, so I go with Andromada/Nevada instead as they're kind-of controllable but still facing problems flying them, implementing such feature will make it a bit easier for pilots to fly. Supportive!

I have no words about this suggestion at all, but it looks so fun and realistic, i've saw in real life airplanes works like that, with altitude.

I'm Supporting.

Ngl I liked this idea and can be used when you are not a pilot as well. Pilot job is a bit boring when you do it alone but I watch movies while doing it but the attitude gets higher everytime and that's a bit painful to keep it same while doing smth. Positive  :tick:

Yes, I liked this idea. This feature will be very good if added. Adding altitude meter in planes will be realistic and useful for pilots. Also adding this feature will not harm anybody in CIT and will make pilot job little more realistic. Because of that I'm giving you positive vote

Yea GTA physics are weird that makes the plane lean downwards by time. This will be a good addition like the /cruise feature. It should be something like /althold so it is used when a player wants to use it. This will make flying Andromeda and AT-400 easier. Positive

Positive

A problem with big planes is to keep them steady I can't count the number of times I looked on my phone for a sec or went to the bathroom and to come back to see my plane crashed in the middle of the ocean are I'm at like 700 altitude

I also believe this will help newbies in playing this job since its one of the hardest jobs to master because of the GTA flying mechanism so a bit of help will get newbies to actually consider the job

It could be useful for the civilian side because as Mr.Pringles said GTA Physics are  not that much good that it lead the plane lean downwards ,My vote is Solid Positive. :tick: :thumb:
Good luck with the other votes .

I love Pilot Job, and that would made my day if it would be added. It's going to be more fun and more realistic in some way. It will also help pilots in some way and of course it is going to be amazing because it's something new. I think Civilian side will love this addition.

Voting Positive  :tick:

The idea is kinda great, I am not an SF player but sometimes when I feel tired I go there and try out some jobs, And the one I mostly like is pilot because it's one of the realistic jobs. Since I am enabling 3D blips on settings, sometimes I see like 3km left to reach the position, Which is kinda alot and the plane isn't that fast so I prefer to switch to google or youtube until I get there, But it's not possible as your vehicle could be fucked up easily, Adding the pilot altitude hold gonna make it more better & fun. So I definitely agree on this.

I fail to understand how this would not be encouraging AFK working.
If you can just point the plane to your destination's whereabouts and not worry about stalling or erratic gains and losses of altitude, then what is preventing the job from being AFK friendly?

I just want to say that this suggestion looks very good. I like to drive planes especially a few stunts I do with Hydra. I'd like to say that this trait will work for me and I'm sure it'll reduce plane crashes. My vote positive  :tick:

All planes have Cruise "C" while they don't have an altitude hold or anything from that kind which makes the plane go up and down without even touching the keyboard. And you can test what I'm saying by taking a hydra for example and just press W; You'll figure out that the plane keeps going up until it reaches the Outer space.. Which is totally unrealistic and annoying because it can make you die from having no Oxygen in the outer space, so adding this is necessary in my point of view and I think it would actually be a positive addition to the server and to the Pilot job especially. Positive.
