F-14D Supertomcat with variable wings and retractable gear

by SkylineGTRFreak
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

The famous F-14 Tomcat for IV. And thanks to JulioNIB's script, it has sound, variable wings, working elevators and retractable landing gear.

Check the script here:

This mod also comes with 4 changeable skins, I may upload a few more skins later for a bigger variety. Detailed cockpit, lod models and custom colission included. Replaces: Airtug

Hey i re-positioned the thrusters a little, thought you guys might want it as the original position annoyed me alot:

























And one thing i noticed, no matter how i land the plane, the right wing falls off no matter what upon touchdown. Any idea why? :(

What kind of retards rate these mods so highly even though most of the time they function very poorly? Do you imbeciles even properly try these mods before rating? Of course you don't.
Posted on January 18, 2013 10:20AM by mcknme
Wow. Mcknme, you are wrong. I rate 10 in most cases (always after trying), even with flaws, because of the following reasons:

1. The modder applied lots of time on its creation, therefore I reward the effort;

2. Most mods can be fixed and therefore I support the release of updates.

3. High ratings can (not always though, I don't care about ratings, some do) encourage the modder to release more and better mods.

Please don't insult the other users, or else you'll lose their respect.

BTW, back on topic, I tried this, and I used Ausgustboiboi's settings. Anyway, the right wing problem happens with me also. For efforts and this being one of my favorite planes, I'll give you a 10. Please fix the wings mate.

Yea, the wing problem occurs to me aswell, however, without the script, I didn't have the problem. I can try to fix it, as I have an idea what may cause it, but I'm not to 100% sure.
Posted on January 18, 2013 11:54AM by SkylineGTRFreak
@Pedrofire21 respect+
Posted on January 18, 2013 12:28PM by Augustboiboi
Oh and i noticed a couple more things too. The shadow of the plane is all messed up and another problem probably about the script. The rear flaps of the plane keeps jumping upwards periodically... Which is totally weird
Posted on January 18, 2013 12:44PM by Augustboiboi
shadow looks fine to me... see 3rd screenshot, I can't see it being messed up there. The elevators replace the frontdoor and the player will constantly close the doors if they're open. And in its "closed state" it has that rotation
Posted on January 18, 2013 1:27PM by SkylineGTRFreak
@SkylineGTRFreak Thanks man, really appreciate your effort. JulioNIB and you are making quite a stir with the whole air combat and the simulation alike models.
Posted on January 18, 2013 1:40PM by Pedrofire21
F-5E Tiger II, F-15E Strike Eagle, A-10A Thunderbolt II, what would be your favourite? I'm currently thinking of maybe making another plane.
Posted on January 18, 2013 3:06PM by SkylineGTRFreak
@SkylineGTRFreak: Gorgeous. Another awesome one :)

If you made the A-10, I would die from the explosion...in my pants lol. Ground attack aircraft in LC? Omg...
Posted on January 18, 2013 5:26PM by TacoGrease
Can't wait to give it a try man.
Posted on January 18, 2013 5:34PM by 2TimesACharm
A-10 "Warthog" Thunderbolt II Mr. Skyline, how could you even ask? Just kiddin'. My favorite plane, BTW. If you were to make it, you would make me a very happy pilot. Kudos for your efforts, once again.
Posted on January 18, 2013 5:57PM by Pedrofire21
@SkylineGTRFreak: absolutely wonderful, congratulations my friend 10!
Posted on January 18, 2013 6:39PM by mainsystems2412
Regarding the shadows, please take a look at this screen


It's like there are only the shadows of the missiles and the wheels...
Posted on January 18, 2013 6:47PM by Augustboiboi
Kool its Topgun all over again all i need now is a Tom Cruise ped . Very nice work dude .

FYI : The helicopter that Plageat is requesting is from Crysis 2 if you decide to do it . It does have a badass look about it lol .
Posted on January 18, 2013 8:24PM by AdrianMonk28
@ Augustboiboi, see if adding +ext_strong to flags helps
Posted on January 18, 2013 9:04PM by tall70
AdrianMonk: well, I have made the F-14 textures of Top Gun, I can make them as a skin pack for IV and upload them. Aaaaand, i have made Maverick, Goose, Iceman and Viper as pilots, aswell as the enemy Mig-28 aircraft (for San Andreas, i'll try to find A video)

About the heli: I don't have crysis 2 for pc, only ps3
Posted on January 19, 2013 2:44AM by SkylineGTRFreak
@tall70 Did that. The wing falls off anyway...
Posted on January 19, 2013 3:08AM by Augustboiboi
hey i having problem with the AC-IV.. i cant roll left/right and pitch up/down the plane.. little advice here would be appreciate.. :) i've already put the costum handling and others written in readme + AC-IV in scripts folder with config for this f14.. thanks before :)
Posted on January 19, 2013 3:08AM by fience25
@fience: well, a is roll left, d is right, CTRL left is up and Shift is down.

@Augustboiboi: That shadow looks strange indeed, however, the shadow is not generated by the model or texture file, but the game itself, there's nothing I can do about it. And as you can see, it works fine for me :S
Posted on January 19, 2013 3:16AM by SkylineGTRFreak
i mean i've tried that too.. still not moving the plane..

i'm not touching the f14 config and in game keys.. x_x
Posted on January 19, 2013 3:43AM by fience25
hm, well, this is strange... Laptop or normal PC/Keyboard?
Posted on January 19, 2013 4:12AM by SkylineGTRFreak
Top Gun skinpack released!

Posted on January 19, 2013 4:25AM by SkylineGTRFreak
Well, does it happen to everybody or just few? If others don't have this issue you know what that means. If this happens to bunch, i would try to play with handling line at least. Maybe some mass values can help it.
Posted on January 19, 2013 4:32AM by tall70
@skyline : laptop keyboard.. well i dunno why.. i still can't find the problem x_x the only working keys are W for thrust and S for air brake.. i'll upload a video tomorrow to show you what happened.. i'll comment the link :)

@tall70 : i know.. hmm, i'll try.. :D
Posted on January 19, 2013 5:42AM by fience25
@fience25: Well then, I know some guys who were using a laptop and couldn't do anything except what you're able to do. I don't know what's different with the laptop keyboard, but that seems to be the problem :/ Those problems occured with earlier plane mods like Metalwars' F-22 or my F-15 aswell.

And Ace Combat skin pack uploaded: http://www.gta4-mods.com/misc/f-14-tomcat-ace-combat-textures-f19274
Posted on January 19, 2013 5:46AM by SkylineGTRFreak
hmmm.. those seems strange too.. i did use the f22 before using your f14, and yes i've encountered the problem. i think it's b'coz i'm using laptop. gotta admit it :( well, thanks for the info.. :)

btw, awesome f14.. 10/10 for you! keep it up..
Posted on January 19, 2013 6:11AM by fience25
VERY NICE ! Thanks you guys for the script & the models. I have used EPM 1.5 to add rudder to flight. FLIGHT ONLY! There is no visible flight surface on model,Tho flight is more realistic now. I changed AC-IV.ini keys for flares & bombs to Z & C thus Q & E of EMP are now the rudder control.

??? Can I change landing gear to manual control in the.ini or the AC-IV.vb file?

Hi SkylineGTRFreak sick work you got there :) Really awesome work!

Now i dont know if you are good at retexturing vehicles, but if you are i got a simple request. You see right now am shooting a big action movie with serval people and am the producer. Now here is the thing I forgot the remove a heli i had ingame while we were shooting. So i saw my mistake after when i was editing it. The helicopter i used was a Bell 206 B and had a texture of a Chicago police helicopter. I also use the orginal LCPD police cars as the movie takes place in liberty city so i also need the helicopter to be LCPD too.

I Guess you already figured out what my request are huh.. ;) I request a retexture of this helicopter: http://www.gta4-mods.com/vehicles/bell-206-b---chicago-police-helicopter-f13116

And if you can't do it, please if anyone other got some skills with retexturing stuff and photoshop please help me. And its okay if you dont wanna do it for free so i will repay you with a choise of any weapon coming from gta sa/gamebanana converted to gta iv.
Posted on January 19, 2013 1:22PM by edsir98
To be honest, that model is really meh... But I have made a skin based on the defaut LCPD chopper, But tbh, I don't really like it, looks too plain.

Posted on January 19, 2013 5:35PM by SkylineGTRFreak

@ edsir98 W O W OFF TOPIC don't you think ! ! ! ! ! !
Posted on January 19, 2013 5:52PM by fulmjacket
@SkylineGTR Yeah I know the model isn't the best but its to late to change it now.. But skin will fit perfect,thanks sky :)

@Fulmjacket lol.. Off topic? Not really, as i requested something from sky. Then i also explained why + gave him credit. So if you really think this is off topic please explain it to me.
Posted on January 19, 2013 9:02PM by edsir98
this wing fall problem can be result the of vehicle door/trunk/hood opened, i had to use an function to make them stay open in the right angle, i will try do some trick to avoid this
Posted on January 20, 2013 6:57AM by JulioNIB
done, i found a solution, will be available in next update ( very soon :) )
Posted on January 20, 2013 7:55AM by JulioNIB
@SkylineGTRFreak: I have tips for avoid wing fall problem. you should edit wing collision on the top from actual wing. I see your door_pside_r [COL] is really under from wing, it causes a broken while on land.

and please add outdoor (taillight & headlight) and interior light on the cockpit. don't use siren from chopper because not useful.
Posted on January 20, 2013 8:46AM by metalwars
@metalswars: yea, thanks, I have found out yesterday aswell, works fine so far. And I have added interiorlight to the cockpit, I think headlights may look strange :/

And here's a video of the new A-10A Thunderbolt II:

Posted on January 20, 2013 9:20AM by SkylineGTRFreak
Hye Sir, can anyone help me? What's the control for the jet to go left and right? Everytime I download jet related mods, they always seems to fly straight only... Please help.
Posted on January 20, 2013 12:19PM by KIRA20
CHECK out my textures pack for this mod =)

Posted on January 21, 2013 8:53AM by liridonx92
@SkylineGTRFreak: come on release that *!
Posted on January 21, 2013 4:12PM by metalwars
Posted on January 21, 2013 5:29PM by CORE.MAX2010
Quite interesting, in special the script! I hope we can do that stuff in V as well, seeing your planes there ;)

@fulmjacket: EPM for rudder? Nice! Mind sharing the lines?
Posted on January 22, 2013 1:47AM by Threepwood
@metalwars: yes yes, I will, but I was too lazy to finish the last things :D

@Threepwood: Yea, I hope it's quite easy to convert models from IV to V. Will be awesome to see some F-22s, Pak Fas, F-14s, F-15s, Su-37s etc in that game
Posted on January 22, 2013 3:26AM by SkylineGTRFreak
@ Threepwood As I said rudder flight surface does not move tho plane responds when keys are pressed. "1560980623,6,0,0,Q,E,0,0,0,0,5,0.29,1,50,0,0,0,0,0,1,0.05,0,0,0,0.65,1,airtug rudder force" U can change Q,E, in move doors .ini or flares & bombs in AC-IV .ini to key of your choice. I would like to add MORE rudder force can this be done? Q & E and or Z & C can be changed to keys u like. Well who am I to tell U. The move doors is your mod :)
Posted on January 22, 2013 4:31PM by fulmjacket
@fulmjacket: and @ Threepwood: Can you prepare and upload a AC_IV.ini and move doors .ini ready for rudder flight that let us to replace in the script folder (or give us a link, or send to me at core.max2010@yahoo.com) pls
Posted on January 22, 2013 10:31PM by CORE.MAX2010
thanks fulm..

ore.max: could take a while, I am very rarely on my computer to install anything. I am just collecting it now for having it at hand when I install ;)
Posted on January 23, 2013 12:50AM by Threepwood
@Threepwood: Thanks for the fast answer, bro. Well, we can wait for you, and Thanks for the EPM revolution xD

Posted on January 23, 2013 5:22AM by CORE.MAX2010
Hey, I have seen several vids all have the same type of planes shooting each other. F-14 shooting F-14 ect. A second plane can ba added to your game. Then change the AC-IV.ini Look for this line. "[enemy_jet_1]" below it see ( jet_model= ) Add for example "jet_model=ripley". I think U get the idea. DON'T ADD QUOTATION MARKS! :D flmj...
Posted on January 23, 2013 6:38PM by fulmjacket
best vehicle mod ever
Posted on January 24, 2013 1:43AM by Kokane
If you do the A-10, please make the gun like the buzzard guns, except only make one. I would love to do some strafing runs through the streets of Liberty City
Posted on January 2, 2015 8:41PM by pigbenis
Can someone please give me the EPM lines for this, I have tried so many times and I cant get it right. Especially the landing gear, can someone please help me out?
