Plane handling in action on GTAIV

Postby [DRuG]NikT on Fri Jan 09, 2009 2:41 am

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet.... all we need now is for the dff plugins to evolve for IV, and we can change the model, too...

add flag: "IS_PLANE" to "fbi".
copy plane-handling: "fighter" and rename it "fbi".
copy flying-handling: "fighter" and rename it "fbi".
VEHICLES:IDE
change Type "car" to "plane"

Yeah just tested it, it works!!! sweeet

only hard thing is that (by default) you have to use ctrl to fly up and shift to fly down :(

EDIT: its a fucking bitch to fly like srsly hard.... and OMFG hight limit!!!!!!! srsly >:(

EDIT2: ok sooo after awhile you get use to it.. but its still not that easy!

Fucking awesome - this is why the GTA3 dodo was so popular - took a lot of practice to fly.

Caps - I'd be very interested in packaging this as a mod tonight, where we document it and package the docs as a mod.

One of the things we could also experiment with, is different vehicles having this technique applied to them, even, perhaps, seeing what happens if we substitute in a dff model and rename... perhaps using this technique, the Androm (plane at the airport that auto-flies) may not crash the game when it has it's flags set to IS_PLANE??

[DRuG]NikT tries not to get too excited just yet... but dude.. this is a breakthrough... after everything everyone said... technically GTAIV does have planes - I can't wait to compare the engine to previous versions.

yeah thats what i was thinking if we can change the model we could have ourselves a real plane mod, is there a IMG tool out for gta4 yet or will the old ones for SA work?

EDIT: i found one

EDIT2: i was playing around with handling config and now no cars spawn anywere, its and empty city!

EDIT3: ahha umm it wasnt in the handling it was beacuse i had the IMG editing tool open while i was playing :(

EDIT4: well i have changed the configs to both the dodo and androm and it dont seem to make much diffrence in how it handles :S
