This mod replaces the AT400 in GTA San Andreas with a Qantas 707 as owned and flown by John Travolta.

** FINAL Update 2011 **

Updated in this release:
- Perfected collision file (tuned so engines don't hit runway signs so easily)
- Totally refined model surfaces and textures (added smooth groups & retextured everything that annoyed me)
- Aileron animation refined (working ailerons & all other surfaces)
- Glass reworked on windows (interior cockpit now visible from exterior)
- Overall tuning of model (this is most likely the final unless some parts begin to annoy me)
- LOD model now matches plane
- Texture/Colours compatible with MTA and SAMP

The model was taken from simviation, then UV mapped, dummies tied to animated parts, then textured for San Andreas by [DRuG]NikT.

It is available in gmax format from http://www.simviatio...design_gmax.htm

The texturing and normals have been worked over so you can put writing on both sides, and to iron out some weirdly visible vertexes. The left and right sides of the plane are in separate images in the txd. The tail and rudders were modeled by me to work around a lack of tools for editing animations - the rudder and elevators in this plane are in fact very reworked vertexes from the AT400's animated parts.

The model was originally by George Carty ([email protected]), who converted it in GMAX from a 707-320B by Rok Dolenec ([email protected]). I have obtained written permission from George (thanks mate!) prior to release. For this reason, while I authorise re-skinning of the aircraft (with due credit to myself, Rok & George), please refrain from altering the model.

Ha awesome, I think John Travolta is a great guy especially because of his ties with owning a replica Qantas 707. You've done a great job mate, even Travolta would be pleased tounge.gif

Thanks for all the positive feedback... now for some background info...

"According to the Federal Aviation Administration pilot database, Travolta is qualified in several types of single and multi-engine aircraft, and has the highest pilot medical certification possible." - http://flatrock.org....ear_captain.htm

His driveway:

At the end of this driveway @ Jumbolair, just north of Ocala, Florida, can be found a Gulfstream and a Boeing 707B:

Looks great! I'll have to try it out later on. I wonder how he gets the 707 to the runaway without backing over the trees near his house?

Too bad John Travolta is a massive Scientology tool. die.gif
Its amazing how easily some of Hollywood's elite are brainwashed into join nothing more than a giant money based total-BS CULT.
Cool plane, but John Travolta has no place near my GTA, lol.

BTW- Sorry for that outburst, its just.....grrrr......NM

Dillyracer - you can - use camhack.

Lysergio - I fully agree - was talking about that to someone today... and it occurred to us that these types probably get involved in whack religions as a tax dodge, then, when deciding to disassociate from them, are treated to a nasty series of slander threats should they say anything to speak out against said group... corporate thuggery to silence people is commonplance with whack religions, especially the like of the scientologists.

All heresay, but that's my 2c - he's still a wicked pilot 8)

Its not the worst religion around, and we have no right to question his choice even if we do think the whole thing is a giant scam or cult which it is lol

Now this may appear to be a bump, but I have just updated this plane after years (and the link in the first post)..

Updated in this release:
- LOD model now matches plane
- Even More realistic collision file (tuned so engines don't hit runway signs so easily)
- Working ailerons
- Texture/Colours compatible with MTA and SAMP
- Realistic landing gear
- Improved handling

Enjoy 8)

Sorry to double post - but if anyone even commented on my releases, perhaps it wouldn't be - since the last post I have done stacks of work all over the model & released the final tonight - links updated in the original post.

Updated in this release:
- Perfected collision file (tuned so engines don't hit runway signs so easily)
- Totally refined model surfaces and textures (added smooth groups & retextured everything that annoyed me)
- Aileron animation refined
- Glass reworked on windows (interior cockpit now visible from exterior)
- Overall tuning of model (this is most likely the final unless some parts begin to annoy me)
- Went over any gaps/seams in the model and closed them

I'll comment, Great Work, keep up the modeling, how about some Trains, an Old Hitachi, Comeng in Metro or Connex Livery (Only make it Connex if you wish for the Train crash the game or something)

I have actually done one train before - rigged up an Israeli train based out of Haifa - it got bombed (IRL - and I unfortunately don't mean with spray paint) several weeks later - the irony.

Link to it's release thread:

Yeah, I downloaded that a while ago and liked it, I feel that we need more trains in the Games, I would like to see some better trains for GTA III.

Does anyone know how I could eliminate the line/change in lighting that appears right down the centre of the fuselage ??

I've been fiddling with it all along and can't get it to go away - have tried meshsmooth, mapping both sides to the one txd/image, nothing seems to work?

I notice if I detach either side of the line then reattach (3dsmax) more lines appear at the attach points? Could this be an error in my technique for UV mapping?
