Put a plane anywhere!

If you’d like to place planes on the ground, there’s now a way to do it with a slight ME modification. Take note controlled AI planes explode upon spawning. Set them to uncontrolled in order to avoid it.

To spawn planes on the ground, the following has to be added to the plane_one_point and plane_first_point tables in the MissionEditor\modules\me_route.lua file:

Code:
actions.takeoffGround, 
actions.takeoffGroundHot

Should look like this:

Code:
  plane_one_point = {
      actions.turningPoint, 
      actions.flyOverPoint,
      actions.takeoffRunway, 
      actions.takeoffParking,
      actions.takeoffParkingHot, 
      actions.landing, 
      actions.takeoffGround, 
      actions.takeoffGroundHot, 
  },
  plane_first_point = {
      actions.turningPoint,
      actions.flyOverPoint,
      actions.takeoffRunway, 
      actions.takeoffParking, 
      actions.takeoffParkingHot, 
      actions.takeoffGround, 
      actions.takeoffGroundHot, 
  },

DCS will say it’s an air start but they start on the ground. This way AC can be placed everywhere, as long as it’s flat ground. As all the props are able to take off and land on the grass just fine, this could be a great addition to some WWII environments
