Planes with Ability to carry cargo

Ello my fellow sky riders,

Does anyone know how to load a vehicle on a plane with a carrier function? I am experimenting with a few planes that have the carrier file attached, but when i attempt to load another vehicle, i.e. humvee or even paratrooper, no matter how slow I go I end up blowing up. Any suggestions?

Strictly speaking, you can't do that. But you sort of can do that, but not with a normal aircraft. Check out the work OfficerFlake has done with OpenYS and player controlled carriers.

Ahhh, that makes all the sense. I was coming to that conclusion, but I think I just wanted to hear it from someone else lol. Thanks!

Well you could also and animate a cargo plane to "load" a load. Use the Bombay key to open doors and the wing sweeping or vtol contols to control the "loads" movement. A good example are the takaty 737s.

But weight is also a crucial factor but that's not really something thats changeable on the fly, maybe flake could implement something in oys?
