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.

i [Partially solved] Added "Don't Land When Following Player" Setting

(updated 7 months ago)


I've used this mod from way back but always got annoyed that heli's would land when following the player and flying about with a fleet of heli's to destroy biter nests would cause them to land in strange and unexpected places. So, I made a couple small changes to the code and added a setting option so heli's won't land automatically when they catch up to the player.

Too lazy to do a git pull request so I just zipped up the three files and threw them in my DropBox.

Was going to add a "land all followers" hot key but was too lazy to track down how to get the heli's that were following a given player in the code base.

Thanks. I'll take a look into it over the weekend.
