Hello! I'm working on a mod for Maxo's Vehicle Loader, Vice City, this time it's the unique unobtainable Gash Blimp found flying around Downtown. This mod will let you spawn it anywhere, and fly the Blimp. So far, i have some stuff to fix, these include:

Collision (FIXED) But still care is needed when landing

After fixing collision, tommy doesn't even try to enter the vehicle, the only way to enter it is to climb on an engine and press F, then he goes down and this time he enters (That's temporary fixed).
 
Features of the vehicle:
*Converted model and textures
*A collison model which is accurate to the DFF model
*Good camera angle
*IT'S HUUUUGE

 

This mod wo;; feature TWO blimps, one in HD model and textures, and one in the original detail.
 
For testing, so far i use a driving similar to Helicopters, i'll need some help to make it ride without the need of the arrow keys

Found the collision problem: the collision model is lower than it's supposed to be, i go on the top and tommy sunk in it, i will try to create a new collision model in this current dff. And possibly it goes through the ground because i based the "wheels" around the cabin, should i put them a little far?

Alright guys, i fixed the collision with invisible wall, now it fits perfectly with the vehicle, the "go through everything" is unfixable, and aircraft heigh limit is small, so it can cause some problems. Anyways, now we got a new bug introduced, now i can't enter it at all, i need to climb on the engines to get in, i'll try and fix it.

This bug is unfixable guys, if you want to enter it, spawn it somewhere, where the engine should be the same level as the fence, so you enter it. I tried adding a ramp for the engine as collision and it didn't work, or put a high enough car under it and climb on it... I don't know guys. I'll keep finding solutions,

I dunno if you'd want it or not, but I made a blimp in much higher quality as a prop for a building, and if you'd like I can let you use it for the blimp. All it would need is a retexture to make it look more like the gash blimp becase the current blimp looks quite scrappy. Good work thus far, though.

Temporary fixed the not entering bug, i add a ramp on the back of the left engine (where the driver seat is), so you can climb on it and enter without the needs of cars or fences. The ramp is collision only and not visually shown :D

The textures should be enhanced IMO. They look too LODish compared to the other vehicles' textures. :)

I agree.

@DJThanos: Here you go if you need (128x128):

Also, the poly count could do with doubling for the main body.

Well, I appreciate the idea, but the model is too low-poly. :p

Again, if you'd like to do an HD one of it, I can let you use the one I posted. It just needs a canopy and ban - it's an HD blimp.

Thanks both of you for the help, i'll give a credit. Anyways, the texture is not a single GASH image, it looks like 506EgJE.png

The blimp on the top is what we need, and the blue cabin on the down left corner. You should update the whole texture anyways so it looks correct on the vehicle. Also i need a handling specialist, so it takes off like a helicopter, lands and turns like a helicopter, but rides like a plane. The MVL vehicle format i use is helicopter

Ha, nice vehicle, it looks real funny to fly such a big thing. Maybe edit the XML a little so it's really heavy or something :p

Um, well. I tried to put more weight on it but it didn't help. Any handling specialist here, to make the vehicle move foward without the need of arrow keys?

Well, i'm a lazy dumb f*ck for delaying the mod for a year but i'm gonna work on it again (actually i took a big break from modding..). I'm gonna make an HD version of the Blimp and then the normal one shown in the video. Handling is still a problem though.
