OK, new version is up:

ADuke's Helo pack RC1

Fixes/Changes in this version:

1. Fixed the barrels on the mini-guns, they weren't spinning.
2. Improved normal mapping for all helos.
3. Added co-pilot seat and disabled it for troops in-cargo.
4. Changed "Set Ropes" action to "Drop Ropes".
5. Changed MH60K color.
6. Added 3 new helos.

The lineup:

Under BLUFOR->USAF Air:

The good ol' hh60g



Under BLUFOR->US ARMY Air:

The new and improved MH60K



and..

The MH60K ERFS



Under BLUFOR->160 SOAR Air:

The Nightstalker's MH60K



and...

The Nightstalker's MH60K ERFS



So, there ya go...

I am going to let these soak for a week so I can fix any bugs that come up. I know you all are getting impatient for the ArmA 2 version, I am doing it this way because once I switch over to the new dev tools for ArmA 2, I can't go back, but don't dismay, they will be released for ArmA 2 before you can say "Patch 1.04", lol J/K.

Have fun,

-ADuke

Wow, new version has been up about an hour or so and already 2 bugs...

1. That stupid muzzle flash on the left mini-gun.
2. Noticed some texture discrepancies on the front of the 160th birds.

Sorry, I am very picky, would you mind, atleast for ArmA 2 to change
"Under BLUFOR->160 SOAR Air:" to
"Under BLUFOR->160th SOAR Air:" :P

Otherwise looks more awesome every day I check it out, can't wait!

Beautiful pack ADuke, those helos are wonderful :yes

I just have a small question about a "bug" sorry if it has been answered before (but I don't think so, at least not in the armaholic thread). It seems the chopper don't have any "suspension" (don't know the exact english word) anymore, here is 2 pics to illustrate what I'm trying to say :

"basic" uh60 flying (From ACE mod, in fact ^^)


yours flying


No big deal,it's just a detail but I was just curious to know if theres a specific reason or if it's just for the look ?
Oh and do you think it would be possible to make those nice extra equipement usable ? I mean those on the nose of the chopper, I think theres a IR cam and maybe some other stuff. I know I can't expect a IR cam but it might be a good thing to add some kind of scope the copilot could use.

excuse my local english ^^ and again thanks for your hard work :)

@Christian1987: I don't know why you would be getting that error, are you sure it is from MY helicopters and not RED's blackhawks?

@BloodnGuts: That should definitely be fixed, and it will in the next version, I have thought about adding FLIR, was going to wait for Operation Arrowhead for that for the ArmA 2 version, don't know that I will have time in this version.

I just put the fix in for the front and rear dampers, I didn't even realize they were sitting so low before.

I can handle it, congrats on learning how to change texture paths and stuff, but it's a pretty easy fix.

Great news ! Thanks for the answer
dampers...that's the word I was lookin for :D
Also looking forward to your packs Soldier2390, good luck with them.


EDIT : ADuke, I've also notice another "detail", when you're sitting as gunner in the helo you only have access to the "iron sight" view, again 2 pics to illustrate what I mean :

1st person view in "normal" Blackhawk (from ACE), you can use the "free look" to watch around you and press "v" or right click to switch to the iron sight view


And here is from your chopper, if you right click you'll swich to third person view. It seems one "view" is missing.


EDIT 2 : oh and if I can make just a little suggestion, it would be great if you could get rid of those spot lights. It's my opinion and maybe others will disagree but I've always find them pretty weird. They're not useful, usually pilots have NVG and IMHO they screw the whole look of the chopper. It would be great to have all the light but the spotlights. Or to find a way to be able to switch on / switch off the spotlight but I guess it is harder.
That was just my 2 cents.

Thanks so much ADuke for making this. This is a GREAT addon.

Just concur with the muzzle flash on the left mini-gun. I hope you can get it ironed out.

Thanks again mate

Perhaps, just for ease in the editor - could you put all your choppers under one heading?

Just an idea Sir ;)

I could do that if you wouldn't mind the names being extremely long for the 160th birds.

IE:

HH60G
MH60K
MH60K ERFS
160th SOAR MH60K
160th SOAR MH60K ERFS
