Excellent. The dull, original model with the crappy rotor blades looked out of place with the addition of your flyable helicopters.

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.

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

In VCS it's ok, because it's in super shiny and colorful 80's, but in grey concrete jungle in 2001 there is just too many small details, that looks like a random bugged polygons from distace and none of gta3 vehicle has so small details so it doesn't looks like something that R* made, if they would add helicopters to gta3. I will convert SA heli for myself some day.

I once converted Cessna 152 plane mod from San Andreas to III, I still have the files in-game... Since I kinda suck with handling and other config. data, I was never able to take off, plane was stuck to the ground but I might look into it again & see if I can take advantage from this mod.

 

I'd even be willing to release Cessna for everyone, as long as I can get in touch with the original author & ask for permission...

...What? The colours have been tweaked to use the gta3 carcols, the model quality has been altered slightly to fit in more with gta3, all of them have but they are still higher quality than gta3s helicopters obviously. If you think it looks bad due to the lack of aa in that screenshot, then just dont spawn it.

Maybe add a bit alpha? colgate.gif

Don't worry about it man. The heli exists in the III universe, with that look too. Its not like your using GTA IV helicopters.

 

Also the paint color argument is also invalid because vehicles in real life are not darker colors in New York, and colorful in Miami. They are the colors the manufactures make them. So its too bright for LC isn't a reason.

 

Also, whats left? I really wanna play this thing.

 

Edit: Not sure how much ASI modding was done on the full wing Dodo, but I think I may know how to get one working on GTA III 10th Anniversary Edition (but not as well as your Dodo of course). Some of this may not be possible with out ASI, if vehicles work differently on this game than on IV. I think in III era GTA's (not sure about SA), there is some stuff you can't change in the ide that you can on GTA IV.

-Plane uses the ID 154

-Rotors will have to work like the stripped wing Dodo. Their always running (If possible, if not it would just have to be static. Or the plane could be a lear jet like the Shamal so it doesn't need all the animations, but then you got sound).

-Plane would sound like the Dodo.

 

But on mobile, it wouldn't be able to spawn. So there are a few solutions.

Solution 1: Seeing if it can spawn well keeping old saves working.

-Replace one of the two Dodo spawns (would be better if it was the one by the helipad) to the full wing Dodo

-See if its possible to keep it so the main.scm size doesn't change. I'm not sure, but this may allow old saves to work.

 

Solution 2: Old saves won't work.

-Spawns added to the airport.

-Though Bridges and Tunnels are blocked, there are boats available so you can get to all the islands from the start. Bridges and tunnels unlock like normal to keep it correct.

 

I might look into this at some point.

 

Edit: I hope this can be fixed. Editing the insane stunt jumps would require scm editing, so you might be able to make it so your aircraft can't trigger insane stunt jumps, and maybe so the clipped wing Dodo can't ether. I think GTA LC had this issue as well.

Great! That shouldn't take long. Do you think it could be out today or tomorrow?

 

Edit: I get this feeling that we will be able to access the LCPD HQ roof via teliport.

Wouldn't be hoping for today's release ("today" CET-time wise). Probably tomorrow, unless something really bad happens or I suddenly forget how to write in English and won't manage to make a proper ReadMe.

Lol, you will be fine. tounge.gif

 

Can't wait to try it out. I've always wanted to have working aircraft in III. GTA III's LC actually looks nice from the air in my opinion (minus the missing rooftops).

 

I hope someone will make a mod like this for Watch Dogs. The game isn't gonna have aircraft but should. The black out hack would be a fun one to watch from the air.

It IS done anyway, literally. I was trying to get a yes or no answer, which I obviously didn't get, looking at your reply.

Remember when Silent's widescreen fix for SA was going to come out in June/July?

He's just ran into some problems regarding dummy/map helis, removing them now causes a crash for some reason, so the planned spawn points for certain Heli's had to be changed, and original places he was going to put other's are buildings which are not solid, so again, deciding where to spawn them in places that make sense.

If he cant remove them, why doesn't he move them to a spot where they cant be seen?

More specifically, they don't want to hide when using a CLEO script. Moving them would be even harder.

I'm not focusing on it much as ThirteenAG's mod is good enough - mine will only expand it to be just like VCSPC's fix - it'll look similarly though.

This is so nice, I was hoping so long for a mod like this to happen. Really, beautifully done! icon14.gif

 

If only it was possible to implement the other three abilities to III - crouching, popping tires and jumping out of vehicle

BTW would the rooftop at Kenji's Casino make a good spawn point or what? biggrin.gif

Alright then. How about swapping them with an object that wont be visible?

It would... if I were able to hide the static helicopter properly. Something seems wrong with doing it via CLEO.

Oh and BTW does anyone know a mod to cover all the missing rooftops? Damn, R* was sloppy while making buildings, but I guess they didn't expect helis to happen biggrin.gif

Well, how do the destroyed buildings work? They swap a model with a different model. So, you could make a new object, where the model would be under the map if it were to use the dummy heli cords. You could use the destroyed buildings method, or even use the same method you used to swap out the chase heli and Catalina's heli.

 

If I were creating the spawns, the dummy heli's would really only be in the way of the Maverick. Here is how I'd do the spawns. Its kinda like how GTA LC did them.

 

-Maverick

*Airport helipad

*Casino helipad

-LCPD Maverick

*On top of the Staunton Island Police HQ (with a teliport to take you to the top)

-LC News Maverick

*On top the news building in Portland

-Hunter (with functional weapons)

*At Phill's Compound

*Maybe by typing in "OHDUDE" and it will spawn in front of you. (Cheat from San Andreas)

-Armadillo

*Maybe a few by where the dummy helicopters are.

-Dodo (full-winged)

*Right next to the clipped Dodo by the helipad

*In one of the airport hangers

-Skimmer

*At the Docks in Staunton Island

-Biplane

*In one of the airport hangers

I'd like to avoid duplicating all GTA LC spawns, although they're pretty intuitive and some of them WILL be duplicated.

Okay, so it's 2:13 when I write this, I wanted to go sleep, but after I saw this topic I am speechless. Really.

 

Silent, zajebiste!

 

Helis in gta3 are something that I would have never ever expected. I just jumped through the topics sites quickly... If I got it right, in gta3 there are some codes/scripts in the game engine for helis, but they were never used (have been hidden by Rockstar)?
