DCS Slopepad / portable helipad

By request I’m adding a portable helipad to DCS. This specific pad is what is called a slopepad. It can be used in mountainous and sloped terrain to create a landingspot for helicopters.
Running into an issue where I can not set the so called world space to keep the pad from following terrain angles. Doing my best to solve this!

DCS Helicopter pack

 

DCS is a great combat sim but can feel a bit sterile, especially for those who want to use it outside of combat scenarios and just fly around in what some consider one of the best simulated helicopters. With the mod I’m working on right now I hope to change that in the near future. The mod will contain a number of helipads, buildings, barriers, signs and some civilian scenraio specific items such as a car crash scene, paramedics, ambulances and police vehicles to name a few. All this can be placed using the mission editor to create your own helicopter adventures.
