III Aircraft

Recommended Posts

What about adding a Sea Sparrow? Which can land on water and has got a machine gun like the hunter does?

Not planned. Can't be assed with making a car which floats on water.

 

@up

III has different anim system.

how the skimmer keeps floating on the water then? wow.gif

@2up answers the question in @up tounge.gif

 

Sea Sparrow would be a car, Skimmer is a boat.

And Dodo is a car, altougt it fly like a Skimmer (Boat). So if diferent definitions is possible for planes then why not for helicopters?

Boat hierarchy is too limited to be able to handle a helicopter in III.

GTA3 limits are annoying angry.gif

 

EDIT:

If you would have boat definition, then entering it as car would be just as big problem as making car float on water as boat. But normal Sparrow is cool too and you should use it so all helicopters wouldn't be similar.

Re-enabling buskers, I don't know how would I handle music + there's no animations. Pretty unlikely, sadly.

 

They would fit in and improve gta 3 atmosphere. But if re enabling them is hard as you say then it's not worth the effort.

 

Biplane is awesome smile.gif , although it fits more in to the countryside, than into LC's urban environment. rolleyes.gif

You know, I wonder why no one has made a map mod for III that adds a country side north of the map. One that is in the unused space north of Shoreside Vale. Plus a small town that has Ghostown in it.

 

Edit: So what is left to do?

 

Also, do you think you could give me permission to convert some of the aircraft in this mod to MVL for VC? I'd convert the two that are not in VC. I'll give credit.

I have thought about it many times but I am just not confident enough to start a big GTA III map mod with the limitations to the games mapping limits, and I do not want to build it on GTA LC.

Good idea, me or Luten may release it by ourselves - if we don't, I'll PM you smile.gif

Ok. Hope the full wing Dodo will sound like the Dodo in III.

That's the thing you would have to ask maxorator about.

Last, fifth helicopter has been added:

Now only some last code fixes (Skimmer audio), then a CLEO script to fix USJ issues & add spawns and release! smile.gif

Bell 205s, eh?

 

Exactly what the GTA III helicopter's based off. Good work!

 

Can't wait to play this mod.

Nice. Do you think you might replace the fake npc heli's in the game? That is the 3 star heli and Catalena's heli.

Or at least do a better model of it. It would be jarring if we have a low-res helicopter alongside flyable ones.

Hey you should add the Sparrow (not the Seasparrow) you know.. just to have more varierty..

 

As for Catalina's and the Police's helicopter those can easily be replaced with any other model, you could use a Maverick for Catalina's and then the blue LCPD maverick for the Police one

 

Or maybe you could use the Bell 205 models (the helicopter you just added) since they really look like the original low-quality GTA 3 helicopter models

III Aircraft will not replace ANY game files, so I'm not planning to replace III helis, at least not in the official package.

 

Sparrow, I don't know. I think it wouldn't fit the game.

I'm pretty sure you can replace the models without actually doing it the old way (replacing .dff and .txd files in gta3.img) can't you just add a line in the ASI that redirects the game to use another model?

You should upload the files on another site, as well as GTAGArage, of course. That way, it's quicker.

I think you're right about the sparrow not fitting with Liberty City, oh well.. about the NPC helicopters, you could replace Catalina's with a white Armadillo, and the Police Helicopter with the LCPD maverick (or a blue armadillo)

Don't forget to add shadows - they are very useful when it comes to landing helicopter biggrin.gif

 

No offense, but your last helicopter looks awful, it's too HD since gta3 has no antialiasing, it would be better to convert some helicopter from SA like Raindance or Cargobob.

Helicopter shadows are present already, I've used an unused shad_heli texture. They look pretty good.

Flyable vehicles cannot be used as NPC helicopters, because their models are structured differently.

If this is too HD for GTA3, then Rockstar messed up as it's from VCS. wink.gif
