I remember thinking about this after finding one, some months back.
I think it would really help with immersion, although it would make an heli crash a very likely chance of a firefight. I really don’t know how much this could break the server stability or something, but the idea seems really nice to me. I’ve seen heli crashes pop in and out, in front of me… And every time I see that, I just feel like I awoke from a dream, and my immersion-levels go straight to 1% haha, if ya know what I mean.
So the basic idea would be:
The helicopter would fly in from the edges of the map in a straight line (diagonal or 90º, whatever would tax the server less, idk), and crash in the current assigned locations, randomly. Since all of the heli-crash locations are mostly in the west side of Chernarus, they could spawn in the east-side, from the ocean, and go straight to where they would crash. With a little animation on the propeler while going west + some descent&spinning animation near the location + a grenade/explosion sound or something..
I think it would be a lot more dynamic and exciting.
(I’m sorry if this was someone else’s previous suggestion, but I can’t use this forum to search posts. Can’t find the option)
