This mod replaces the AT400 in GTA San Andreas with a 747-400 in DRuG Transit livery - I've left off our decals in this release for those that may not want another clan's name on their vehicles.
The model was taken from exchange3d, but sadly there is no record of the original author.
It is available in 3ds format at this link.
You will note the texturing is improved but still rough - I will spend more time on textures once I have a few models in and my skills in turn improve. The skin is taken from one I made for flight sim 2004.
I may do a refined version down the track including animations for the ailerons, assuming I can find a tool to edit them in San An - can anyone help me with this.. Steve?
http://www.gtaforums.com has stacks of info... but what you specifically need to search for is the dff IO plugin for 3DSMAX by Kam - it is really easy to use... there are stacks of forums for help there under editing discussion.
This release of the boeing was the very first, and does not allow writing on both sides of the plane - I strongly recommend you try the Qantas version before this... it is a much better revision - both were by me, so don't think I'm insulting another modder.
This is a very good looking plane replacement mod. But there is a one huge bug, Boeing 747-400. That's not 400. 400 one has little wings at end of the huge wings. But that your 747 could be a 100, 200, or 300. Use this http://images.google.com/images?q=747-400&hl=en&btnG=Search+Images
The 747-400 externally resembles the -300, but it is a significantly improved aircraft. Changes include a new, two crew digital flightdeck with six large CRT displays, an increased span wing with winglets (the -400 was the first airliner to introduce winglets), new engines, recontoured wing/fuselage fairing, a new interior, lower basic but increased max takeoff weights, and greater range.
Now this would infer that what you claim is correct, however, read on...
Apart from the basic passenger 747-400 model, a number of variants have been offered including the winglet-less 747-400 Domestic optimised for Japanese short haul domestic sectors, the 747-400M Combi passenger/freight model, and the 747-400F Freighter (which combines the 747-200F's fuselage with the -400's wing).
Thanks all the same though, you taught me something I didn't know... that winglets are more commonly the case on the 400 series.
