Plus, you could easily support these helicopters, since the custom ones are, again, on the base you wrote; there's no fundamental differences between yours and ours, so for functional purposes whoever made the particular helicopter is irrelevant. You know more about it than anyone making custom ones.
They're not junk, it's just a bit depressing to see people come here for stuff I didn't make with questions I can't/don't want to answer.
And that guy probably forgot to install my base.
yes i got SVN, but SVN dosnt give me materials, models, lua, ect. to make them SPAWN. thats my problem they will not spawn, it spawns an ERROR for the 1 heli that is on the spawn list out of the others that i downloaded and installed (the black shark is the only 1 on the list thats spawn able)
That means you installed it wrong. There is a folder in the SVN that contains folders beginning with "WAC".
Put all of them in your garrysmod/garrysmod/Addons folder, so that at least "WAC Base" and "WAC Helicopters" are in your addons folder. You don't need the other folders if you just want to fly helicopters.
i did that. i wanted to fly all the helis btw, not just 1, so i downloaded them all.
i put them into my addons, and then wen that didnt work i opened up the folder and coped and pasted the material, models, ect. to the directory were the games main material and models are (outside the addons folder). then when that didnt work i put the downloaded folder into the directory. nothings working.
i have SVN, but that dose not have material, models, ect. in it. i installed it 3 different ways in 3 different places in the Garry's Mod directory, and i still only have 1 heli that spawns an ERROR when i click on it. (the black shark)
ow btw, wheres the Little Bird? its not on the sight or any download linking to it
The SVN folder you downloaded should contain an 'Addons' folder. What's in there?
theres no addon folder
SVN - subversion is a system that keeps specific folders on your hard drive up to date with an online copy. How in the name of all that is holy and good did you figure out how to download Firefox?
it installed a progeram when i downloaded SVN, there was just a installer, no addon folder, or folder to begin with
i type like i txt. dont hate please. just need help. and when i had problems taking off i downloaded SVN then the heli took off, i just figured it was a controler. dont hate
so any idea why the thing wont work?
I'm not going to try to explain how to install it. SVN is one of the simplest processes for installation ever devised. If you think SVN is a type of joystick you should consider getting un-born.
calm down a bit. i thought it was a controller program because it fixed my lift off problem.
after i installed it
i already installed SVN
Actually no, that insults rocks.
Seriously, you install TortoiseSVN, you checkout the folder, put the URL in and you're DONE. If couldn't get any damn easier.
Make a folder, right click, SVN Checkout, enter my link, OK, wait, then you'll have my addon in that folder.
@ everyone talking about my fuckup
Yes, I derped, I forgot there was a KA-50 on this base.
Sue me. I slip up just like everybody else.
Make a NOTAR Littlebird
Give me models, or how the hell do you think should I do it?
If I want to drive a normal car then it just keeps me in first person,why's that?
I have a problem. When I'm the gunner of helicopter, I can't point to anything. specific screen for the particular caliber doesn't work for me; is fixed and I can't move it.
PD: This helicopters are the best, very realistic.
Hey, I got the newest version of the heli from SVN, as well as the base and swep pack (love the sweps) but every time I spawn any of the helis, a lua error says that it attempted to index IsPlaying, a nil value.
I looked in cl_init.lua and it was defined and everything, no reason to show the error. Anyone know what's going on?
What's the exact error?
Hey dude sorry if this has already been brought to your attention but I didn't see any posts regarding this issue in the thread so far. Basically when I am in the gunner seat of a two man helicopter and I go to use the mouse controlled gun or missiles the camera doesn't follow the missile or move with the gun like it's supposed to. Instead the camera stays inside the cockpit and wont move with the mouse making it nearly impossible to hit things. Don't suppose you would know why? Also I don't know if this is related to the same bug but when I use your sweps I no longer get the realistic camera movement and I cant use iron sight or scope like I used to be able to. Maybe an update that screwed with the settings or something like that?
Do you get any lua errors?
God I feel like an idiot. I discovered the problem. Basically I updated my WAC helicopters folder from the svn but not the WAC base or any of the rest. Although the camera still doesn't follow the missiles like I've seen in youtube vids. Is it still supposed to or did you change that in an update? if so, is there a way to change it back?
I am having a problem. I tried to install that mod on my server. I put the exactly same thing as I put in my steamapps/me/garrysmod/garrysmod/addons in orangebox/garrysmod/addons, but in single player I can spawn the ent, and on the server it appears to be an error. No lua errors or anything in console.
Before you ask If I changed something - I cut out all the helicopters but the Ah-1 Cobra so it all won't expand my content pack size too much. This Cobra perfectly works in singleplayer, but does not work on the server.
But it's more realistic and convenient to use the way it is now, so I will keep it.
Make sure you didn't forget to copy all the model files, and that there's still wac_base in the entities folder.
So, I downloaded this through svn a week ago, tried it out, spawned a helicopter, as soon as the chopper appeared I'm greeted by the following lua error: "[addons/WAC Helicopter/lua/entities/wac_hc_base/init.lua:500] attempt to preform arithmetic on a nil value".
Also the helicopters refuse to start.
And yes i have tried reinstalling gmod, running the addon without any others installed and so on. Still nothing.
Anyhow just wondered if there is a known solution or anything.
