Mirror link added to first post. Thanks mate.
"There's a plan to add hiddenselections on the sides so missionmakers may add own markings and flags, fitting the mission scenario."
Hey, that sounds extremly porno.
Now I just have to look what these damn hidden selections exactly are, and how they work^^.
I think the cockpitview in your chopper isn´t that bad.
But the wheels I would love to be able to pull them in.
Are there plans for that.. cause the modell looks like...
Keep up the good work..
Hiddenselections are faces on the model that can be textured ingame by using setObjectTexture command.
I will provide some basic markings which can be replaced this way if needed.
So as the grey variant may have the text "MARINES" on the side but your mission design would prefer something more civil, you may create a simple texture and write "SAHRANI TOURS" on it. The simply use setObjectTexture to apply this new texture on the chopper.
There will be exact instructions in the readme about this feature as soon it is implemented.
AFAIK the CH-47 doesn't have a retractable gear, so no, there are no plans to make them retractable.Originally Posted by [b
Cool stuff, can't wait to try it out when I get some free time
Okay, I am forum lurking lol.
Thank you very much for your detailed information.
I guessed the hidden selections are something like you explained.
When I have changed a flag, I think it worked way the same.
Sry, didn´t know that the wheels aren´t retractable at all...
So keeping it authenthic will be the best dicision.. but maybe we can get a few miles more per hour^^ caused through better windflow. (vry sry 4 my english).
It´s so nice adding some civil evacuation to all my little chaotic missions^^.
Thank you again for your afford.
nice bit of editing on these birds - the new maneuverability caught me by surprise. your special chinook is definitely 'interesting'; the whole time, i was expecting a nice, Civilian paint job or something...
all i can say is... "argh, my eyes!"

We're still working to get our CH-47 to final state. Latest additions:
- tweaked animations (still not final but close to)
- sound effects for animations
- adapting and integrating mando_hitch (still needs fine tuning)
- working cockpit instruments
- dammage textures
- minor config tweakings
- countless small things
Would you ever consider 'chopping' the back tailgate off - or allowing it to open a bit further?
I love the Chinook, but on Afro's model, the last AI man when inserting always gets 'stuck' on the back tailgate. He only leaves the chopper when it is up in the air (and sadly dies as a result)
Does this happen to anyone else?
