Description
This mod replaces the AT400 in GTA San Andreas with a Qantas 707 as owned and flown by John Travolta.

The model was taken from simviation, then UV mapped, dummies tied to animated parts, then textured for San Andreas by [DRuG]NikT.

Updated to final release 13th June 2011:
- LOD model now matches plane
- Working ailerons
- Texture/Colours compatible with MTA and SAMP
- Perfected collision file (tuned so engines don't hit runway signs so easily)
- Totally refined model surfaces and textures (added smooth groups & retextured everything that annoyed me)
- Aileron animation refined lots
- Glass reworked on windows (interior cockpit now visible from exterior)
- Overall tuning of model (this is most likely the final unless some parts begin to annoy me)
- SOME PARTS ANNOYED ME! ?! so I also corrected the UV map so there isn't a line down the middle of the body's lighting
- Added flashing night lights on wings and rudder top

The texturing and normals have been worked over so you can put writing on both sides, and to iron out some weirdly visible vertexes. The left and right sides of the plane are in separate images in the txd. The tail and rudders were modeled by me to work around a lack of tools for editing animations - the rudder and elevators in this plane are in fact very reworked vertexes from the AT400's animated parts.

The model was originally by George Carty ([email protected]), who converted it in GMAX from a 707-320B by Rok Dolenec ([email protected]). I have obtained written permission from George (thanks mate!) prior to release. For this reason, while I authorise re-skinning of the aircraft (with due credit to myself, Rok & George), please refrain from altering the model.

Enjoy!

gtashuriken - that's a strange comment to make right after I release a version with more realistic landing gear? Did you take a look at it? Modifying animations to make the gear doors open is impossible as far as i understand... or I would do that too - there just aren't tools for it, I don't think - so you kinda have to work with the original animations for the at400 - and they don't suit the gear doors on a 707
gtashuriken commented over 3 years ago:
Pls make the landing gear as realistic as possible
[DRuG]NikT commented over 3 years ago:
New update!! Updated in this release: - Even More realistic collision file (tuned so engines don't hit runway signs so easily) - Realistic landing gear - Improved handling
[DRuG]NikT commented over 3 years ago:
Woohoo! Updated... I've started fixing up all my old mods... might even make a few new ones... only took me 5 years!? Enjoy the now fully refined Boeing 707 - the landing gear is so low so you can enter the plane from the ground... I might eventually put the correct Boeing landing gear on it, but I kinda like the way it's a challenge to land & lines up correctly with all the ramps (not that you need them). Personally, I think the default at400 gear it's currently running helps to make it suit the game better... what are your thoughts folks?
