Hi,

Well the heli actually SUCKS.
Its hard to control and is totally worthless, I only put it there for fun.

The special Dodo Airplane is the real attraction with the mod.
If you go to Portland (around the Porter tunnel) you may see a Dodo with big wings fly over the city.
This savegame has been written so that it shows up in your garage and is flyable, īcause:r*:obviously did not remove the planes col-files and handlingfiles.
It is possible to shoot it down from the air.

I will now upload pictures of the FW-Dodo, have a look!

The game crashes when the garage doors open. I guess it can't handle well the spawning of the dodo/helicopter and I really wanted to fly those:(
Any ideas? Or any other way I can make them accessable?

Hi,

I am sorry it did not work for you...

Have you deleted the files txd.dir and txd.img from your GTAIII/models directory?

Also it will not work out if you have version 1.1 of the game.:(

Try deleting the files, and, if you have 1.1, there is sadly nothing to do.

Okay I'll try a different version. Yes, I've deleted them but it still crashed :f
I'll tell ya if it works =)

I did try another version but I think it was 1.0 or something (how do I check the version, it's usually in the game menu or preloader..)
Anyways it still crashes on spawning, I guess the game engine doesn't really handle the scripts you wrote/changed very well :/
And I really want to see that helicopter...

You said about a patch, could you tell me where I can find it?
Also you work on a fix for that, which is great, I really hope you finish it!

I've shot the full-winged dodo many times. I really like flying the dodo too, which I learned many years ago:) I would really like to see the full-winged one and the possible changes in it's controls too :[

Hey could you do me a favour and just try to spawn the heli at belleville park? No other special cars? Maybe it's just one of them that makes this happen? I tried
HELI.DFF - 0111 - BELLEVILLE.garage - /IS_ENTERABLE
but it's just that I don't know what you're using to edit it... Please do it and send it to me at aleluia(at)abv.bg
I tried to email you before but your mail has a dot in it which makes a mess...

Hi,

The thing I wrote on the website is nothing like the original code. The original code is like lots of this: 01010101010101010101010101010101010.
I wrote that on the website to make it easier to understand what it is like, actually I had a program help me a little :blush:

I tried to spawn the Heli at SSV, and it does not work for me either...
Did when I created the savegame.

I will try my best to create a mod, not a saved game, that makes this possible to spawn.

It is obviously what the game thinks of as an unsafe vehicle and stops it from spawning. :cry:

I will make a post in the news section as soon as I finished the fix.

BTW: Does the portland garage open up and show you the black Borgnine?

Best Regards
Claude007

Yup, the Borgine cab shows just fine, but none of the other garages would open. Can't wait for the mod :3
Really:p
And please add some pics of the chopper flying anyways, i'm really curious

Hi,

I have uploaded the fix!

Try it.

If it does not work, start a new game...

This is more of a standalone mod:)

I'm really glad you've decided to fix this, but now the game crashes even earlier, while loading. No matter if new game, saved game or your eXtreme saved game. Maybe the HowTo wasn't clear enough, should I have deleted those txd files again? Cause I'm gonna try that, but I doubt it will work... And was it just a full-winged dodo based patch? Still, I hope you'll keep trying, after all most of the people have version 1.1 which may explain why the mod is more unfamous as it shouldnt, it's really something new (a chopper in GTAIII)

I really hope you manage to fix it, I've even learned a bit about car editing thanks to you:)
And still, I'd really love to see the chopper, and I had backed up everything, infact I have three copies of GTA III, because I kept trying to make this work:)

Good that you didnīt have to reinstall:)
The fix I made really should work, because it enables these unsafe vehicles and should spawn the FW-Dodo.

Anyway I just found out I spawned the wrong chopper in my mod :blush:
I tried to spawn "Heli" which obviously is the unflyable īchoppers that spawn at the airport.
You know, those with horrible textures? ;)

"Chopper" is the Police Maverick. :D
Then there is "EscapeChopper", the white chopper that is used in the last mission. That one is not even solid ;)

From now on I will be working on a ChopperMod for GTA3.
Have a look, I will upload description.

This is great! I've managed to get to the EscapeChopper, it's barely solid around the blades motor and... I really hope you manage to do the Chopper mod:)

Yeah, I got the ChopperMod uploaded, works fine AND with 1.1.
It spawns the chopper around the airport, it replaces two of the Dodos at the airport.
I did a little research and found out that the game blocks certain vehicles because they lack the handling file.

In handling.cfg the Chopper did not have any lines at all, except the lines that describes the size of the heli.
I gave it lines and enabled it as a vehicle, wrote "executive" which means you may now see a chopper or two roaming the streets of Liberty City ;)
These will just hover above the ground and you canīt jack them, neither can the peds get out :happy:

Try the ChopperMod!
