Super excited for this mod man! Just curious, have you thought about doing any sort of advanced start up sequence that pilots could use for a little more immersion? Something toggle-able kinda like the Super Hornet mod?

I have looked into it sir. Along with various other immersion features. That kind of stuff will hopefully come later 😎

Nooooo!

 

Okay, kinda joking.  But that's always struck me as gamey when games do that since the M134 is an electrical gun.  And that little NiCad battery in a -60 ain't going to run it.

 

I do get it though, it's a nice option for those that want it.

 

Question for you...I know you said you were going to add armor where it's appropriate.  Were you going to simulate blankets in the cabin?

Agree with gatordev that UH80 is good for start point.  Since the MH-60L & M are using the YT-706(?) engine vice T-701 with higher hp that should be okay. Still, all the extra weight and drag mitigate against the extra power.  Soooo... no one should complain about extra power.

@gatordev

 that's why I gave you guys 2 different wreck models 😏

 

I've also included several static variants for "mechanic pics" that expose nose electronics, fully detailed engines, etc

I'll absolutely try to include as much immersive content as possible. However I will be right onto mh47g's after these are stable. Then my GMV's

SUPER pumped about this!  Glad you took time from all that procreation to do this mod! 😉

I'm also a HOTAS/TrackIR player and most of my crew run AFM as well.. so when Beta rolls around, you can count on us too!

how many people will be able to fit inside the UH/MH-60?

 

In-game cockpit pictures, not from OP himself but fairly certain it's the same mod as the one he's making: https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/995765215216048487/503CDFC6879FC85EF3E7AA400816163329F1C108/

That's not from this mod bud, that's from one of Yura's MH-60's in his mod.

ty lol I've been looking for this mod for a while but I couldn't find it, hence why I figured it must've been from this one.

just an idea, but maybe you should team up with these guys to make the hawks interactive and such

I'm AFM, Hotas, track-IR, pedals. Would love to help when beta drops.

 

I also crew an EC145  IRL and our pilots are prior UH60 pilots, all army, i can ask them for input.

 

From recent conversations, the Ghosthawk is way under powered compared to real life and not as responsive.

 

Thanks

This looks simply amazing! I can't begin to offer appropriate praise for the work and attention to detail you're putting into this.

 

I tried modelling just the refueling boom on the MH-60 as an "applique" to the RHS UH-60 and it kicked my ass...

 

I can't fathom how much work goes into models this detailed.

You based your models on A2, correct?

@energeticsheep

Models without cabin fuel tanks will hold 11. 

Models with fuel tanks will hold 8

(All custom cargo animations also)

DAP models DO NOT hold cargo passengers 

 

That pic is Yura's hawks ported (illegally most likely) as peral is the only one with permission to my knowledge 

 

@Foxone

Looks like the interaction part is universal. So all I need to do is "prep" the cockpits (bones/axis/named selections) 

 

@RiverX_PL

Models are 110% custom made from ground up including all weapons

 

I used A2 samples for sizing only** 

I've also done 5 distance lods so they should be nicely optimized for air assaults

Suspension is FULLY animated, and also INDEPENDENT of each other. They will hang low when inflight, fully compress when landing. I've noticed they do not compress when landing on freedom carrier. I think it's got something to do with the animation source. I'll look into it.

I've also been trying to apply ropex physics to the door gun feed belts so they animate properly, still no luck yet tho

Awesome good to here! I just wanted to ask because the Black Hawks look retarted when the wheels are stiff and stuck in one place in arma lol

I dont know if this would be a good idea. But maybe its interesting to add 4 Slingpoints to the helicopter for when the rotors get shredded ?

Cause there has never realy been a way to recover helicopters that dont explode on impact.
