I remember this script written by some mapmaker who made racing maps (the script was for OFP and a long time ago hence me not remembering the mapmakers name) which gave you a menu option to flip a vehicle to its upright position if it has been flipped over or to its side.

I would think it shouldn't be too hard to incorporate a script like this for vehicles in Dayz, especially vehicles that flip over easily like the ATV for example.

Yes please. There are a few to choose from that are plug and play:

At the moment ATVs require more care to drive than is ideal, especially given some of Arma 2s quirkier physics. e.g. I went over a bridge on the coast road last night that appeared perfectly flat (just a normal part of the road) at full speed on ATV. Half way across I was 5 meter up in the air flipping end over end. Luckily I had a buddy with another vehicle to push the ATV back over or that would be *another* ATV I would have to leave by the side of the road for the lack of this simple script.

Maybe they could add a script where if you flip over heavier vehichles you need more people to flip it back upright?
Say 1 for the ATV, maybe 2 or 3 for cars and maybe 5 for the big trucks? (and 7 for the bus).

Driving along on an ATV hit the side of a railway track and do a triple flip in the air and somehow land on all four wheels, woah. Driving it along Balota airfield, accidentally clip the side of a building and the ATV does a flip onto its back. RIP Mr. ATV.

Flipping is good, but it should definitely be scaled by people (need many for bus etc.)Also, they cant be bleeding/pained/broken legs to be able to flip

Are you kidding, I flip buses with one hand IRL.
