Sorry for slow answers, I have been busy with other things lately.

CptDavo

Thank you for the textures.

The extra texture-files are because I used parts from other models(Apache, Black Hawks, etc.), when I modified the huey models.

I have not considered any sound-modifications yet. It's a question about finding enough "Arma-time" to work on the mod. For the time being, I focus on tweaking the 3d-models.

Snippers

I have noticed the dirt-effect, but I don't know how to change it. I'll try and look into it later.

RUNWARRIOR

Another version of the Cobra is still a work in progress.

It is possible to add your own text, but I'm not exactly sure how to do it.

- I reduced the passenger capacity to 2. Removed passenger-seats and placed ammo-boxes on the floor.

UH-1N "Iroquois"

- The "DAGR" rockets can only be fired by the co-pilot. The rockets cannot lock on to targets, the co-pilot has to guide the rockets to their target.

Bell 412

Hi Foxhound

The dropbox is up to date.

I focus on modifying the model. Making textures is not something I'm good at.

Hey, I have a quick question. Can I use this mod with Zeus? Or is it not compatible?

As long as the config includes the units it should be fine. (Looking at the config I'd say it is included so it should be zeus compatible)

A small bug I found, the UH-1N Escort with the M2 machine guns has rocket pods that are invisible? Is this a bug or just a config mess up? If this question has already been brought up please ignore. Great update love the new heli's :)

Request/suggestion: replace guys sitting crosslegged and crossing their arms with animation of passengers sitting on the littlebird bench. Best yet, allow those to fire their guns from the chopper.

Besides that: I ADORE this mod, huge Huey fan.

Hey man! I love this pack. The huey is one of my favorite choppers, and I love having a ton of variants for all sorts of situations and factions. I'm hoping I might be able to convince the group I play with to put this in our mod pack in the future.

One problem I noticed though- and I don't think it's been brought up yet -is when I'm playing as Zeus and I go to spawn a chopper in "huey helicopters" under "NATO", there are about 12 extra "UH-1H" variants listed between the "UH-1C Recon" and the "UH-1H Closed." If you click on any of them to spawn them in, it crashes the game. It doesn't seem to happen in the editor, only in Zeus (as far as I can tell). It's not a huge game breaking thing, but a little odd and annoying. Didn't know if you were aware already, but just thought I'd drop that in there. Otherwise, great mod!

Oh ok. Thanks however. Maybe someone can do it for you? I think the "camo" version of the cobra will be very awesome. I miss it since OFP!

Thank you for all your feedback. :)

There seems to be a problem with the config-file. I'll take a look at it this weekend.

I'm looking into getting AGM fastrope to work with the helicopters. Most likely only the modern hueys will get the AGM fastrope.

I have not had time to look at Zeus yet, I'll have to get back to that later.

Hi GrumpyRhino. I have been waiting for this mod since 2007. Thank you very much for your amazing armament subsystems and model tweaks. I especially enjoy the UH-1N, and would like to request the realization of my dream to be delivered on either of her side pylon mounts:

Ideally with this sort of look, but I understand textures are difficult:

Best of luck. I look forward to the February update.

@GrumpyRhino

Nice mod !

You could (try to) contact dezkit, since he stopped to support his UH-1Y venom mod, in order to get some info on how to implement advanced flight model but also some really cool features -> see for yourself

@Taro8

I choose different seating animations to get more variation. I always try to add as many FFV positions as possible. Sometimes I run into problems, and have to use "normal" passenger positions.

One of the problems is that when I have a gun mounted on the helicopter and add FFV positions, the mounted gun will loose its muzzle flash. I haven't found a fix for this yet.

@dragonsyr

The texture-file you put in will need to be the same size as the one you replace. If the texture is smaller, it will be stretched to fill out the gap.

@ColonelHartigan

I tried to make a camo-texture, but it looked really bad. I'll be going for an army-green texture instead.

I modified the minigun into a more triangular shape, and made a 12.7mm weapon-config.

See pictures below.

@ Artisanal

The features made by Dezkit looks really great. But for the time being, I'm going for a a more simple helicopter-version. When I have learned more about modding, I will go back and try and make a more detailed version with more features.

A little info about the coming update.

I have been trying to make a new army-green texture for the UH-1N:

UH-1N "Army"

It is just a one-coloured texture plastered all over the helicopter. It needs more work.

The new weapon GAU-19::cool:

GAU-19

Using 12.7mm ammo this weapon is significantly more powerfull than the minigun.

I hope to add some kind of ammobelt to it. It's just tricky to place it so it won't get stretched when you turn the gun around.

I read on wikipedia it was introduced in the early 1980's, so the vietnam-style hueys will not get this gun.:p

The Bell 412 will get a new dark-grey texture. It is the same texture as the army version, just in greyscale.

I was able to dig out an old helicopter sound-file from Arma Cold War Crisis. It will be used by the UH-1N's. It is more... what's the word? choppy?, flappy?:confused:, than the UH-1Y sounds it has currently.

I'm impressed with the GAU-19. Any chance of a gunship version?

I also have *some* limited texture experience and was tooling with the idea of retexturing the N into USAF colors myself. If I have time for it over the weekend I'll contact you about it, GrumpyRhino.

Thanks for the update.
