You're right about Chopper Chases seeming lifeless. Hopefully your changes will improve them.

Description

Something new and recent that I've started working on is the idea of instructing pilots to actually make minor corrections to the stock flight path - which is actually by default just a straight line from start to finish.

In this screenshot I'm battling a chopper to reach the finish in sight, but typically at this point the helicopter would dive down into the gorge before quickly returning to altitude (or face collision with a rocky wall). In my revised challenge the pilot knows that's a dumb move and will make a minor detour. They will also not risk flying into trees and other obsolesces.

It doesn't exactly make the races easier as naturally these minor course corrections wont cost the helicopter that much time, but it does make the races that little bit more fun as your no longer chasing this helicopter that seems completely lifeless.

I am also revising the start points for these races, so the points are always straight with your vehicle lined up in the center of the road or track at the start of the race. Not at some silly angle half in some bushes!
