I ended up purchasing the 3D model myself earlier last year. If anyone is interested in taking up the challenge, feel free to DM me and I'll provide the model for you!
@FoxtrotDelta Looks like this antique warbird is well on the way to entering the skies of San Andreas! I look forward to seeing and hearing more of this mod as it gets closer to Beta or release
@FoxtrotDelta Will do! I'm definitely looking forward to taking this plane to the skies. Hopefully my beefy PC will do the screenshots justice
These are looking really nice! I'm definitely looking forward to the final release, but thanks for sharing these
GTAInside has it so that you can filter car mods by specific brand - very useful if you're looking for more overlooked vehicles.
I can say that this is also happening on Chrome for Windows - GTA5mods pages are redirecting to shady Indian tech support and Russian fake chrome extension pages and bring my browser to a standstill since I can't close or switch from the offending tabs. I really want to support this site, but until the threat of having my credentials stolen by some shady individual in an Indian Tech Support Scam call centre is gone, I'll be keeping my adblocker on, thank you very much.
Forgive me for asking so often, but I'm starting to think this will never come
A BAe 146 or MD-11 would be incredible to have in GTA V.
I look forward to hearing from anyone who'll consider taking this mod on - it would be excellent to see this plane in the skies of GTA V. I understand that time is short, so it's a good thing that I'm patient. I'm not like the people you see quite often harassing modders to make what they want.
Alright, I understand.
Recently, I went to the trouble of purchasing PMDG's Boeing 747-400 V3 Queen of the Skies II pack, for a whopping $89! In return, I now have access to some fantastic and amazingly-detailed 747-400 models of all the main variants, including the 747-400 PAX, -400F, -400M, -400ER, ERF and BCF. I even have a model for the 747-400D (Domestic) variant that was used by JAL and ANA.
I'd absolutely love to have one of these planes brought into GTA V, and would be incredibly grateful if this may happen. Feel free to drop me a line if interested, and I'll provide either the models themselves or the package itself for installation! Money for me is a bit tight at the moment, what with my driving lessons sucking my account dry, but I may be able to provide a small donation in addition to the models if needs be.
The 747-400 was the most produced 747 model, and many examples are still in use today, although the older ones are being retired from passenger service and are either being stored or converted into -400BCFs.
As for what variant to choose from, the ball is in your court - I'd be more than happy to see the standard PAX version, -400F/BCF freighter or -400D, though
Here's hoping this goes somewhere, and I look forward to hearing back from anyone who might consider giving this a go.
Is this even happening any more?
I'm really looking forward to this!
I'd personally love to be able to fly this beautiful piston-engined airliner in GTA V! I'd recommend you consider @FoxtrotDelta or @SkylineGTRFreak for this, they've made some absolutely fantastic aircraft mods and might be just the right people for something like this.
@futurestoryteller You seem upset.
Also, have this bit of food for thought: All of Hum3d's models are sold with the expectation that they may be used in games, mod or not - Although this causes the price to rise and most modders do it themselves, there's even an option to have Hum3d make the model 'game ready'. When you purchase from Hum3d, you also purchase the rights to use the model. That's another reason why it's so expensive.
Alright, I'll list some of the reasons why paid mods are both important and allowed on this site:
While it is very possible to create mods for very little money, either through dubious means or through the use of free/self-made 3D models, quite a lot of modders choose to purchase a royalty-free high quality 3d model, such as those from Turbosquid or Hum3d, and these cost a lot of money. While you might get someone who'll make a mod for free, you not paying them means they may not have access to a HQ 3d model of what you want them to make, and thus will have to use a cheap or freeware 3d model which can compromise on detail.
It's also worth mentioning that these 3d models aren't cheap. I'm considering learning how to make vehicle mods myself and I can see that if I were to use payware models, I'd be spending an average of £50 - £110 every time I had to purchase a new model to convert. How do you think making modifications like that would ever be profitable without either accepting donations and commissions or engaging in piracy?
It's also worth mentioning that ZModeler3 costs money too - by donating to a vehicle modder, you're supporting them in that you're providing money that can be used on new 3D models and a continued subscription to ZM3. If the modder is creating models from scratch, they're additionally paying a lot of cash into the subscriptions for the various modelling programs they might use.
Paid mod requests are basically commissions - When I donate money to someone like @FoxtrotDelta or @SkylineGTRFreak in return for making the mod I request, I'm commissioning them to make the request I came up with into a reality. This is no different to commissioning an artist to paint you a specific scene, or a company commissioning a film crew to make them an advert.
Not only are you paying the modder to create your request, you're paying them for their time. Even if you follow a tutorial (such as that made by SCRAT-TECH, which by the way is excellent if you're planning on learning how to convert 3d models to GTA V or port GTA SA and IV cars), you're still looking at anywhere between 24 hours and one week of work, if not more!!
This is time which the modder could use on making other mods, or for non-modding purposes, so your payment also serves as giving thanks to the modder for taking the time to painstakingly create your request. As above, this is no different to commissioning an artist, animator, author etc. to make a request you've come up with.
TL;DR: There are many reasons why paid modding is not only okay, but can actually be vital towards helping modders continue to produce creations for GTA V - These range from time constraints, covering the cost of models and programs required to make mods, to simply paying someone for the service they provide.
@Kiryu tried today it crashed the game need to fix collisions .
No dials working but i can send beta 1 for testing soon , will be a bit buggy though.
Also no smoke or sprays from spray vents from under belly i have to script a custom weaoon for that.
Alrighty, I see this still needs a bit of work before it's ready. i'm alright with waiting though, sounds like this is gonna be one cool plane!
