Combining Arma2 Helicopters with new flight model?
Is there a way to combine the advanced flight model of the ToH helicopters with the looks of Arma 2 helicopters? Background is, that I have ToH running with Arma 2 content using links and modlines. The existing Vietnam mods run just fine and I would love to combine the UH-1H from there with the advanced flight model of the medium helicopter. Is there any way to do that?
@ TeTeT I wonder the same as you. Would be quite nice to have the "real" Huey in TOH. By the way how did you menage it to assimilate the Arma 2 mod into TOH? Is it the same way like adding the sample chopper of BI to the game ?
If someone have an idea how to handle with the flightmodel it would be a pleasure to found a workgroup of doing this job.
You would need to at least perform a load of config work on the Arma helicopters to get them to work with the ToH flight model. There would probably need to be some modelling work as well. Not an easy task.
I think unless the creators of the models decide to move them to ToH then you will have to make do with combining Arma 2 and ToH and flying them the old school way.
I guess the light at the end of the tunnel is that IF BIS decide to put the ToH flight model into Arma3, you might start to see some conversions then. Personally I hope the FM is incorporated but I don't think it has been decided yet.
Unfortunately, porting BIS addons between product lines is forbidden by BIS. It would be necessary to ask their permission to do so. Also, I think you would require the MLOD source files into order to actually port it so you would need to request their files as well.
