Oh well. For some reason, Rockstar never let us fly with proper aircraft in III-era Liberty City - both GTA III and GTA LCS didn't feature usable helicopters nor planes (although they could be spawned in LCS). However, due to the fact Vice City was developed at around the same time as III, some code got mixed up. Luckily for gamers, one of the mixups was proper helicopters and planes handling!
This modification brings several helicopters and planes from the other GTAs to old good GTA III. They handle almost like their VC/SA counterparts, although they may feature some minor differences. Thanks to III CLEO* they'll also appear spawned on the map in several locations.
* Not available for Steam version.

Version 1.0 released! After a quite lengthy wait, first version of the mod has been released! It's been prepared in two packages - Manual Installation Package leaves you with raw files and text lines to be added to IMG/COL archives and data files manually (detailed guide is included), while Assisted Installation Package ships a different ASI file which adds several NEW files to the game, so you only have to unpack the archive to your game directory and play, without replacing a single file!
Pick up your preferred installation method and have fun! Don't forget to leave feedback :)
