this little mod is an original main.scm with one new feature added: whenever you enter a Leviathan, Hunter, Maverick, VCN Maverick, Police Maverick, Cargobob or Raindance helicopter, the "skycrane" magnet will be attached to it. i have left out helicopters like the RC helicopters, and the Sparrow and Sea Sparrow.

Well, its an awesome idea, seeing as the game screwed up and forgot to park the skycrane somewhere, but... It locks my game up after it loads, it starts to show you the player and the scenery, then it locks up and quits, I would love to see a magnet on my helis because it would be awesome to drag vehicles around, so more power to you to finish this mod and to get it working, GOOD LUCK!!!

I assume you tried starting a new game and not loading an old one after installing this mod. That would make the game crash. Excellent mod, but i think it would have been better to only put the Skycrane on the Leviatian, Hunter and Cargobob as these are the only helis big enough to carry cars. Would also be good to make all vehicles (including the Harrier and Train) magnetic.

Would also be good to combine this mod with the Hot coffee + Sanga mod. This way we can play about with the Hunter straight away without having to enter spawn cheats or complete the game.

thanks for the replies.:) remember, you have to start a new game because this is a script mod.


to combine this with the hotcoffee and sanga mods is a good idea, but i think i'd have to get permission from the authors of those mods first to use them with my mod.

and unfortunately i can't edit which vehicles can be attached to the magnet, it's hardcoded. i have tried to attach it to the train, too, it would have been fun:) but unfortunately it looks like only cars (and bikes?) can be attaced.:(

Could you release a version where only the Leviathan has the magnet? It looks a little silly to have a normal helicopter have the magnet, not to mention annoying seeing it hanging there when I don't want it.

as i've said earlier at the heli magnet topic on GTAForums, the reason for the smaller helicopters to have the magnet is their speed, agility and the fact that they mostly have more than one passenger seat.:)

see, a smaller heli couldn't lift a heavier vehicle such as a truck. but when transporting smaller vehicles, such as smaller cars, it's easily faster than the bigger heli's, which is one of the main reasons they have the magnet as well.
the other big reason is that for example the Maverick has 3 passenger seats. that means you can, for example, go to a gang war area with 3 of your gang members with you in the heli, with 4 more in the car below. also, you can choose the faster long-distance transport that helicopters give without having to leave your precious car behind.:)

Yes, whatever, I don't care about all that stuff. The fact is it looks really dumb to have a small helicopter dragging a car around. I don't care about gang members or seats in the helicopter. I want to keep things realistic and not stupid. That is why I hate all those mods that put rare cras all over the place, it just stupid. The sight of the magnet hanging from the Maverick annoys me so much I cannot bring myself to use your mod at all.

You may have some skill in being able to mod the scm, but you obviously don't have any sense.

I would really like this mod but I really have to agree that the magnet looks a bit silly on the mavericks. To please everyone, why not also make this mod add more seats to the bigger helicopters. They would probably be able to carry at least 8 in real life anyway. I dont know how many homies you can carry in the big jets but if its less than 20 then that should also be changed. Also how do you make your homies stay in the car when you get out? I didnt think that was possible.

Getting a bit complicated now but how about combining this mod with this idea?:

I reckon that would be absolutely great.

i know what you mean, but the physics engine simulates how much weight can helicopters carry. and since you can see the maverick can easily carry cars, you can see that it's not unrealistic. in reality, you could tie such a magnet to any helicopter, too. this is why the sparrow and seasparrow don't get the magnet.

This is a good mod but it could be excellent. Firstly, the Hunter is the fastest heli in the game, so if you want to a gang war fast, use that. Secondly, I'm sure it would be really easy (and more realistic) to make it so that the Hunter can carry at least 8 people. Thirdly, why would a news or police heli ever have a need for a magnetic magnet? Its unrealistic. I really dont want to make this game any more unrealistic. And it seems like everyone here agrees with me.

i too want to keep the realism o the top in SA so id like a version of this mod in wich only the leviathan and the cargobob have a magnet. i also dont need combinations of other mods in it. just want to have a skycrane on my airfield. itll be very handy when u see for example a car u need to deliver in san fierro in las venturas, u drive it to ur airfield and then bring it to san fiero.

if u really want to combine this mod with another 1, plz take the high and drunk mod, its realistic and fun, and if i could start a new game with only these 2 mods, itd be the best 1 ever. hope u release a version like this soon! like the idea!
