    With GTAV being set in 'Los Angeles' i thought it would've been done by now :(

    This is the only Add-on i am wishing for, and if one of you could create it, i would be eternally grateful and donation would be made!

    Many thanks in advance!



  • If anyone is interested, i have found a .MDL Blue Thunder model already made.

    If interested, i can provide the files for conversion into GTAV.

    Let me know! ;)



  • Ok guys...I am at the end of my tether trying to get this model into GTAV! :angry:

    I have a .MDL model as well as a .Blend model and i have absolutely no idea what the hell i'm doing with these...how on earth do you do this???

    The models are basically finished but i guess they need certain animations and conversion to GTAV.

    If there's anyone, anyone at all that can help me do this thing then PLEASE enlighten me!

    THX!

    I think there is a reason why no one will touch this is because of the copy rights by Hollywood and the fact who ever dose it will get a copy right infringement on them and possibly sued by Hollywood and the makers of the movie I understand you want this in the game but I doubt a modder and R* would want to get sued in a big and bad way.



  • @TR71777 LOL
    Not to sound like an asshole, but there's no way anyone in Hollywood is gonna come after you for bringing a helicopter from a totally garbage, shitty 80s show that got one season into GTA V. If it does I will personally come to your house and defend you from the lawyers that try to kick your door in.

    I am just saying bro that I doubt anyone will touch this cause already one modder got into trouble already with a copy right infringement wit the A-10 Warthog mod and he had to take it down and trust me Hollywood would find out if the company that made the A-10 warthog found about the mod so will this one I should know I am a Army veteran and trust me people got into trouble for far less I'm just letting you know that I doubt anyone will do this mod just because of the copy rights and I am being honest with you

    @TR71777 @SkylineGTRFreak had to take down, along with a lot of other mods, like the F-15E, due to copyright infringement from FSX, if I remember correctly. FSX is a video game, like gta, and gta is not Hollywood. Besides, Hollywood has more important things to do, like making the 80th Transformers sequel or something, than coming after this mod. This mod is less likely to be taken down than, say an FSX model. Mods get taken down daily. If we all freaked out and stopped creating mods due to copyright infringement, there would be no gta modding community.



  • Look @TR71777 / @Unmutual - I really didn't want an argument over this, but you guys need to relax ;)

    There have been other mods that could be open to copyright infringement but nothing has happened to those...
    I have to say, this community for GTA V modding isn't very helpful at all; I'm used to modding the F1 series from Codemasters and help is available at any time and precise.

    If need be, i will do the conversion myself no matter how long it takes!.
    However, even if someone could give me a few tips on what i need to do to get this thing done, then i would be happy with that.

    I have the model in .3DS format now and have made some adjustments myself in 3DSMAX - All i need to know is what i have to do next in order to have this in-game...

    1. Does it need animating? - If so, how is this achieved?

    2. Do i have to write a special configuration file? - If so, how is this done?

    And so on and so on...

    If anyone here can advise me then great!


  • MODERATOR

    @mmpaw44 I personally think that this is an interesting project. If you already have the files in a 3DS Max format, any modder with modeling experience should be able to do it. My first pick would be @SkylineGTRFreak as this seems like something that would fit in perfectly with his other mods. I'll contact him directly and see if he's interested. No promises though.


  • MODERATOR

    @mmpaw44 yes, it needs to be animated, that is done in zmodeler if I remember correctly, and no, I don't think you need a special configuration file. I don't do modeling, so I can't really help you out there. this is just what I have noticed.

    Thanks @nathanjamesddg151 - I have posted a couple of messages in a few of his mods, but i've received no reply as of yet :(

    If you check out my other thread in the 'Modding Questions' section, you'll see where the model is at at this moment in time - It's basically finished, all that's needed is the animations and conversion.

    Thanks again!

    @mmpaw44 All I know is that you can import a 3DS Max file into zmodeler. As for contacting @SkylineGTRFreak, he gets a lot of requests, and since this is a custom project, my guess is that he either didn't see it or that it would take a lot more work than is needed. I have emailed him, so he may or may not take up the project. But having Blue Thunder would be so cool!



  • Gib model :P If I have the model it's very easy to work from then on. A helicopter doesn't need much parts and should be finished quickly. I'd prefer an .obj file (exported from 3dsMax) with the textures.


  • MODERATOR

    @mmpaw44 in case you haven't seen below, @SkylineGTRFreak said he'll do it. So yeah, it's pretty simple apparently. Is probably a lot like his AH-64 mod. If it is, the turret rotation may be a problem...



  • @nathanjamesddg151 As long as I make it an add-on the turret won't be a problem. Rotating turrets just don't work on replace mods


  • MODERATOR

    @SkylineGTRFreak Well then that solves that. Why not on replace helicopters then? Seems odd... Too bad the same thing doesn't happen with boats.



  • @SkylineGTRFreak - YOU ARE THE GREATEST @SkylineGTRFreak !!!

    I can't thank you enough for doing this; Although a donation will be made when completed ;)

    In the archive that i'll put on Mediafire, you'll notice the Models files in separate folders - A .3DS folder & the .OBJ folder. Also, you'll see another folder which has images for which i'd like you to please look at...they are for reference for the door/s and the lights.

    You'll also notice that 'Blue Thunder' had only 2 seats - Pilot & Observer behind the pilot. If it's possible to have the one pilot seat it would be more accurate.
    The door to the aircraft opens similar to the comanche...upwards.

    That's it really - I hope you have everything you need in the archive, but if not, then message me and i'll quickly send the items on Mediafire and post the link.

    Thanks again @SkylineGTRFreak ...I am literally overjoyed about this that you have no idea!!!

    THANKYOU!!!



  • @nathanjamesddg151 - I wanted to thank you for contacting @SkylineGTRFreak for this project; I doubt it would've been a reality without your help...THANKYOU!



  • @SkylineGTRFreak - Ok m8, i have uploaded the files you required.

    Here is the link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/u8ptrgldyd713k5/Blue+Thunder+MODELS.rar

    There should be everything you need in there with both .3ds and .obj models just in case. You'll also notice there's a text document which gives a few notes...Can you please just read it thanks! ;)

    If you can keep me updated on the progress i would dearly appreciate it!
    If you need anything else @SkylineGTRFreak then please, contact me and i'll do what i need to do.

    That's it for now m8...

    All the best and THANKS again!!!



  • @nathanjamesddg151 - Thanks for contacting him...Most appreciated as you can see! ;)

    If @SkylineGTRFreak can get the turret working it would be even better and certainly will add more accuracy to the mod.
    @SkylineGTRFreak @nathanjamesddg151 - By the way, i will be doing a sound mod for this helicopter to that of the TV helicopter and as accurate as i can get it.

    I am no stranger to sound modification so i'll see what i can do! :wink:

    Hope to talk soon!




  • MODERATOR

    @mmpaw44 No problem. I don't usually abuse @SkylineGTRFreak's email with other people's requests, but for Blue Thunder I made an exception. Also, don't expect it to be done instantly. These things do take time, especially with his busy schedule. For example, @SkylineGTRFreak has been working on a guided missile destroyer for 6-7 months now. And apparently the turret won't be a problem if it is an add-on.

    Awesome m8! :relaxed:

    I've posted the links for the files...Let me know if you need anything else ;)

    THX!



  • @mmpaw44

    I would've said I can get it done by the weekend, but I have some relatives visiting, so no promise. By the next weekend for sure though. I will take a look at the files once I am home.
