Anomaly is a standalone S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod powered by an x64 version of Open X-Ray. Built upon Last Day, the mod continues its way on expanding and adding new features while maintaining a high level of quality and replay value.
A simple addon to fix the combat issue of helicopter in Anomaly 1.5 (Thanks to Acemax!)
Since the patch 2.2, the new helicopter combat logic bugged the helicopter. In patch 2.2 or above, helicopter won't attack any hostile creature, include stalkers and mutants. With this fix, they will now attack hostile stalkers and mutants, turning the zone into a warzone.
A huge thanks to user Acemax Moddb.com for providing files for me :)
How to install:
Put the gamedata file in your Anomaly files
If you use JSGME, put the file in the MODS file :)
There is two files in the .rar file, one is called "new helicopter" and "old helicopter"
"new helicopter" will simply fix the combat issue of the helicopter, in patch 2.2 or above, the helicopter in either story mode or warfare mode, they won't attack anybody. Now they will attack hostile stalkers and mutants, also with new movement animations. BUT, the hit box is still quite strange. You may have issue to attack helicopter with only normal firearm.
"old helicopter" will restore the whole helicopter combat logic back to patch 2.0. UPDATE: From what I test, the old heli will be less aggressive on attacking NPC that stay in base, and most likely won't attack you if you don't fire at the heli at the first place (I still need someone to test it... I gave it a test run but I want to see how others situation.)
