Optimized autostart script that takes under 1m30s and completes several common post-start procedures.
Havoc's Quick Autostart for the UH-1H
This is an optimized autostart sequence designed to get the helicopter up and running as quickly as possible, and complete several common post-startup tasks. It is a modified version of the default autostart sequence. It passes IC and is OvGME-ready.
The main differences between this and the default autostart sequence are:
* Turns on all 3 radios.
* Sets intercom knob to INT, which allows rearming after the engine is started. (Enforcing this setting seems to be a recent change, other aircraft now also require this to be set in order to rearm.)
* Turns on Low Rotor RPM Warning audio, which the default startup leaves off.
* Resets Master Caution light, which the default startup leaves on.
* Turns on Master Arm, sets Rocket Pairs to 1, arms flare dispenser, and sets flares counter to 30.
Any of these settings can be easily disabled or changed in the lua file to suit your preferences.
The shutdown procedure has also been optimized, mainly to make sure that it restores the aircraft to the cold-start state, as far as the switches used during startup are concerned.
To install, copy the Macro_sequences.lua file to C:\Games\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\UH-1H\Cockpit\Scripts (or whatever your game install folder is).
To use, press LWin+Home to autostart, or LWin+End to autostop.
Please let me know if you find any bugs or other problems.
Finally, big thanks to the ED programmers who had the foresight to make this scriptable, and Bailey for the inspiration to make my own.
