  • This is quite obviously made by a 13 year old due to the spelling and his unrealistic view of physics by calling it "realistic flight". Play FSX to see far more realistic helicopter flying. This is neat though, but as it's a lua created SENT it's sure to lag any MP server due to the high bandwidth needs of custom vehicles/movement

  • [QUOTE=Datsun;16783780] One question, since the script uses three model pieces (ignoring the aitboat seat) to construct the helicopter. Would it be possible to replace the ones currently used with other models? I know for sure things would look messed up but where is the fun in learning when there is nothing to fix? [/QUOTE] Yes you could replace the models but you will have to adjust where the models should spawn (probably also the angles). [QUOTE=HungryMungry;16784498]I put it into addons and I still don't get the sounds. I get the rocket sounds, and the rocket reload sound, but that's about it. I also put the sound in garrysmod/garrysmod, but still nothin'.[/QUOTE] Remove the addon, redownload and reinstall. [QUOTE=DMGaina;16784768]too bad you can't strave with it.[/QUOTE] It's not hard to make it do that it's just that imagine holding one hand on wasd and one on the mouse, you would need a third hand for strafe. So I made A and D both turn the helicopter and make it go a little bit sideways. [QUOTE=ZestyLemons;16784791]I wish 'go down' was control[/QUOTE] Mine is. I just changed the key bindings. :P [QUOTE=leader1337;16785577]Why does the laser not even point were my mouse is aiming? am i missing somthing?[/QUOTE] It's because it's actually the helicopter that's aiming the laser. If the helicopter moves the laser will move with it. [QUOTE=Teh_Cheese;16785860]I'm getting some multiplayer errors. I have [b]nothing[/b] else on this server besides maps. and I get this error (lua error on top) [code] Folder = entities/sent_laserguidedmissile Couldn't register Scripted Entity sent_laserguidedmissile - the Type field is empty!

[/code][/QUOTE] The error says that all the entities are really fucked up and you can't use them (can't spawn them). That's very odd because I have never seen these errors in MP. Are you sure you haven't edited the files? [QUOTE=nicktelli;16788844]This is quite obviously made by a 13 year old due to the spelling and his unrealistic view of physics by calling it "realistic flight". Play FSX to see far more realistic helicopter flying. [/QUOTE] You have a seeming inability to control your cantankerousness! Do you think one man made the helicopter in FSX? Do you think FSX and Gmod uses the same physics engine? FSX isn't the first flight simulator they made, they started working on the first flight simulator in 1977. FSX isn't free but this addon is. Compare this helicopter with the other ones on garrysmod.org and you will notice a huge difference.

  • I have found no problems with this. It conflicts with nothing. It works very smoothly with everything and I've had like 7 at once and the lag wasn't even noticeable.

Okay, so you're saying "bad spelling" and "unrealistic view of physics" causes people to be 13? Like Sakarias said, FSX is a game based specifically around being a sim, while GMod's physics engine is more of "you get what you see". He's not going to be able to replicate it, and I'm sure he doesn't aim to, it's obviously a bit of an unrealistic goal. Also, no - read above. Unless your server sucks massive cock, it's not gonna lag at all until you've got like 10+ of them, then it might be a bit noticeable.

It makes it a little more realistic.

  • What a grand finale from a great coder! Good luck with your studies, hope you check in here from time to time and give us some teasers of any future ideas! That's right, once a coder always a coder. Unless you grow hair on unthinkable places and start chasing girls, thus losing all interest. ;P

  • Could you make a edit on it so crouch would make it go down instead of the walk key. Sorry if someone else put this idea down but I didn't have time to go through the whole thread.
  • Avatar of 343N
  • Im pretty sure you can edit the lua code. I heard that there is some part binding the key IN_WALK is the Walk key IN_CROUCH is crouch Im 85% sure of this

  • Realy good mod i've been waiting for something like this. Are you going to make more models?

  • Hey Sakarias, the only two things I want are a fourth weapon which would basically be a spotlight you can aim and strafing, which the way I see it, just set Ctrl to switch it between Strafing and steering or set Ctrl to down and Alt to switch them out. This wouldn't be exceptionally hard, right?

  • [QUOTE=Profanwolf;16792978]Needs a turret sound and perhaps two mounted guns on the sides.[/QUOTE] It has a turret sound. And the gun would require additional models or this one to be recreated. Thats just unnecessary. And after playing with it a bit more, the logical option is to have the flashlight button function as the spotlight (who'd have thought THAT button might be good for it, right?) and have the strafe controls set to R. Otherwise, this is perfect.

  • Someone should make a gamemode using this helicopter. There are two teams, terrorists and Cts obviously. Cts start in a lobby type room with no weapons, just fool around for 2 minutes. Terrorists start in the actuall map with Ak's snipers and two RPGS. The terrorists then go out in the map and hide. After two minutes the cts get teleported to their starting area, which has 4 Helicopters. The CT's have to make it to the end of the map safely, atleast one helicopter has to make it to win. CT's can bailout at anytime, with parachutes ofcourse and help the choppas on foot. Ct's obviously also get to pickup weapons in their starting area with the helicopters. They get M4's and snipers and grenades. Funny?

  • It works no problems at all and i love it. I used a armaam missile to gps shoot the helicopter while flying it. Realy run trying to avoid the on coming missile. ( I think you should make sparks for this coming out of the controles bit when you get shot enouth times)

  • ^ We really should have a global thread on how to install these things so people won't ask questions like that. Have it stamped all over the Garry's Mod section in general. You extract the contents to WhatDriveSteamIsInstalledOn:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\*yoursteamaccountname*\garrysmod\garrysmod\addons\ I love how this is the only Helicopter SENT that behaves somewhat like a helicopter and not as just some kind of animated floating thing.
