Mosquito skimmer replacement - Vice City

Postby [DRuG]NikT on Sat Nov 24, 2007 11:00 am

This mod replaces the Skimmer in GTA Vice City with a Mosquito.

The model was by Eumel3D from 3dkingdom.org then UV mapped, dummied up and textured for Vice by [DRuG]NikT.

It is available in 3DSMAX format from 3D Kingdom - click here to go there now.

The polygons have been heavily reduced to get this working in game - the original model was over 26,000 (and is now ~3000 using some sweet reduction tools, so fret not).

The collision file & handling remain the same as the skimmer, such that the mosquito behaves in the air identically as prior to installing.

At this stage, I haven't made the wings transparent, but plan to in a later release, along with a San Andreas version.

I have obtained written permission from Eumel (thanks mate!) prior to release. For this reason, while I authorise re-skinning (with due credit to myself & Eumel), please refrain from altering the model.

Enjoy!

Thanks - this was always one of my favourite mods out of all the ones I've made.

It was made during the San Andreas period before MTA/SAMP came about.. back then, a lot of people used to still play MTA Vice City.

In Vice MTA, some would DM, but most would just mod n mess about, as long as they weren't pwning it up, you were left alone with your peepz to pimp ya latest tricks. One of my favourite things to do was acquire a plane, then just cruise about seeing what everyone was up to - if anyone hassled me in chat or whatever, it was always fun to swoop and 'sting' them with the prop.

Thanks to this vehicle, stinging was a lot more fun :evilgrin:
