[WIP] USAF Air Asset MOD

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure I speak for everyone, but I know its been said before. I don't mind waiting 5 or 6 months on a mod if it means both the developers is happy, and the community is happy with the release. Honestly the beautifull thing about modding is that you can take all the time you want and don't have any major obligaltions.

Thanks Tuna

Were making progress and hope to have a release late Feb-early Mar. We just want to make sure that things are the way we want them to be. Were not only releasing planes..were also releasing USAF pilots and my Unit Security Forces. The units are done..so majority of our time is on the planes but the AC-130 alone takes alot of time with the issues were having atm with the camera angles..then were still looking for a master texture someone who is going to bring beauty to these already beautiful planes. The C-17's scripts are being handled and once those are done we will transfer those to the C-5 with the exception of the troop transport and it will be done. The B-2 is pretty much done peral is just finalizing the cockpit. KC-135 is just waiting on one script and it will be done. So just stay tuned were moving as quickly as we can..but also managing our lives. SP Craig is also hard at work making sure the units are packed correctly and sexy to give you guys a authentic USAF feel. All of the work will come full fold soon enough :)

Thank you very much for that answer. Looking very much forward to fly those planes! ^^

Hi,

short question.

Are the bigger planes required to use a tow tractor? If so which tow tractor is it? I could possibly help out with that kind of stuff.

I work on LOAP and create a MD-3 tow tractor at the moment. When you could use a tow tractor or so....tell me which and i will consider workin on it.

Peace

edit: just saw that post about a "master texturer" for your planes. When you have the uv cuts ready, i could spend some time on them. Dont call me master texturer but i work as graphicdesigner and did some nice textures allready.

Luckily for you, aircrafts like the C-17 and the C-130 (not included in this mod) were designed to land on short runways. They have the ability to reverse their thrust and use it to go backwards. I believe they could be used without a towing tractor in game wise (if you do include that feature) but thhrust reversers AND towing tractor would be better in my opinion.

I saw some screenshots fomr the c-17 with a SCHOPF F396 P

Im not sure about this and it would be probably better to have first hand knowledge.

When will the aircrafts release ? :(

I can't waiiiit !!!

They will be released in exactly, mark my words, exactly in the span of time that it takes for them to be released by the author. You have my word.

In other words, I can absolutlely 100% garuantee, that they will be done on the precise exact same moment, that they're done.

I'll tell you something else, you can expect this mod to be ready, precisely when its has reached the point of being done.

Or to put it simply, these aircraft, this mod. Will infact be ready for download at the very moment, that they, you can, yeah....

Hey Guys sorry its been awhile since i last posted something. Its been a very busy month..with me getting promoted and taking on new responsibilities in the air force then working on the mod..and being a family man all at once..but with that being said we are very close to releasing alpha..just some small issues to iron out and we will be good to go. I have for you here some pictures and videos. Im not a video maker so dont yell at me about how the video sucks its just basically some of the aircraft in this mod with the new collision lights that i put on them as well as featuring the Security Forces units and Pilots that will come with this mod. The Air force is forever growing so this mod will expand once i get the proper permissions to get certain aircraft..what are they you ask? use your imagination but more details will come after an initial alpha release. Anyways enjoy the videos and pictures and feel free to comment. I know that most are wanting the C-17 so ill give a quick update on it. It will be using the IG Loading script and also the AI halo script im sure most of you have used it before. Ill make a video once IG gets back to me with final tweeks on the script. Until next time..again enjoy.

Nice job guys I even already have plans for that C-17. The last couple of days I'v been working on a completely dynamic Tank airdrop script. It works but I'v had to result in either using the Mohawk or the newly released C-130J.

PS. yes I know neither the mohawk nor the C-130 can carry a tank.

So would love to see that mod released so I can put it into good use and keep it up. Keen for the B1-Lancer too. Can't believe you are making it of all things. Such an awesome bomber.

Looks amazing! Quick question.. Your front post doesn't say anything about helicopters so is it safe to assume that those helicopters in your videos are not apart of this mod?.. (I hope they are!) lol

Here's a script that the KillZoneKid released in a tutorial guide for armored vehicle parachute drops. Thought it might be a good link to look into once you all get the modeling issues sorted.

http://killzonekid.com/arma-scripting-tutorials-epic-armour-drop/

Great video on this link to showcase the concept.

I have already integrated that script into a dynamic AI controlled air drop. Where a unit activates a addAction and the map opens up and depending where you click on the map a mohawk will fly to that location and drop the tank. I also have my script working on the new C-130J release but really for realism this C-17 is going to be perfect. The script above thou could easily be integrated for tank drops that a player can activate inside the aircraft.
