HelicopterRevival


Adds a fully animated attack helicopter to the game. Ideal for getting from A to B quickly, exploring the map, building islands and nuking biters from the sky. Originally forked from Kumpu with fixes for Factorio 0.18.2+, but adding some enhancements of my own as well.

Default Controls

Shift+E and Shift+Q - Start and Land.
Up and Down Arrows - Increase and Decrease flight height.
Shift+L - Floodlight (at night).

If you have the remote control in your armor grid:

Known issues

  • Landed collider and smoke may be slightly out of place.
  • You may get stuck when exiting the helicopter before it is fully landed. Simply enter and exit the vehicle again to get freed.
  • Helipads aren't surface-aware... Keep that in mind when playing mod such as space exploration
  • Underlying shadow is different in landing automatically vs manually
