Hey if you want.
I wouldn't mind helping with some of the coding, or even go ask Flan (maker of plane mod).
Just I haven't made one yet, but I know Java so shouldn't be too hard.
Just PM me and I will get back to you.
Is there a way to repair or disable durability? Considering they explode, repair option would be nice, assuming I'm not overlooking it. Thanks.
Damage is automatically repaired, about 1% per second, so just fly carefully for a bit to recover. You can toggle "look pitch" (key L) to see current damage level (smoke indicator for damage coming soon).
When you press W (to go forward) the helicopter itselve inclines a lot, making it more difficult to go in one direction coz it goes more down than forward.
Try setting "enable_auto_level=false" in the settings file 'mod_thx.options' (then restart the game). This will allow you to set the pitch of the helicopter and it will stay there (roll is not affected).
Or, try "look-pitch" mode, where the pitch is determined by the player's view. Just hit the L key to toggle in-game -- but it takes some getting use to! You can lock the altitude to make it easier (key P). Also, the W/S keys are now the throttle. :smile.gif:
In both of these modes, use the auto-level function (key K) to quickly level the helicopter and hover. For look-pitch mode, this also resets the "zero" position.
