– Tri: 1,590
– LOD Tri: 134

– LOD Texture Size: 128×128
– Requirement: Natural Disasters DLC

Stats: Overwatch Beacon’s Levitator
– Max Speed: 20
– Summary: Is exactly like Police Helicopter.

Advance Vehicle Options (AVO) mod is needed to prevent normal police helicopters to spawn along with Levitators.
– The asset will consistently spawn numbers of flyers non-stop in a big city, be sure you can tolerate that.

Conceptual Notes
– Let the invasion begin!
– Due to no custom animation, it doesn’t spin yet again.
– Overwatch Beacon has exact the same model as Overwatch (Park), but with the beacon base.
– Overwatch Beacon’s Levitator is a smaller model of the Levitator (Plane or Park).

Known Issues
– Despite being 4×4, the ground may be forced flatten by the size of 12×12
– Despite not requiring electricity, they will not glow outside the city’s electrical grid.

Special Thanks
– BloodyPenguin for the functioning mothership idea. I wished I made Overwatch before its the park version so I didn not have to upload the same models twice.
– SamsamTS for Advance Vehicle Options (AVO) mod.
