    Do you know what SVN is, and that all helicopters you listed (except the toybox ones) aren't from my pack?
    Quit being an asshole about the custom helicopters. Without them, your pack would have died a long time ago - you sure as hell aren't making any more. You wouldn't have made the base available if you didn't want us expanding on it.

    ...Why can't anyone get the Black Hawk's name right?

    You're being an asshole for waving the custom helicopters off as junk at every turn. This especially:

    It's annoying that they call it WAC even though they have no idea what it means, else they wouldn't call it that way
    They're not in the "WeltEnSTurm's Addon Compilation', or did I miss something?
    Yeah, they are "WAC" helicopters, since they're built on the WAC base. Unless you'd prefer not being credited for the base?

    Edited:

    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.

    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

    SVN is a program, it dosnt contain foldrs, its a program run engine thing. idk wut it dose. but its ment for controls, nothing ment to be relating to the game gmod. its ment for joystick controls and simulators. if it should contain a folder relating to gmod then the folder and SVN should be in a zip folder that can be downloaded on the gmod addons sight or here. the original SVN that ur required to download comes from the TortoiseSVN.net web sight.
    Are you fucking stupid? Jesus Christ, you spell like a third grader, with the reading comprehension of a kindergartner.

    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?

    Tortoise SVN is a program that manages the use of the subversion file system. You need some components of this addon - WAC Base and WAC Helicopter - which are obtained through the subversion file system - to use the custom helicopters for the WAC helicopter base.

    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.

    It won't work because you have the IQ of a rock.

    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.

    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?

    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?

    A conflicting addon that uses the same function to manipulate view positions, which can only be used once at the same time. Try to sort out addons until you find the one that causes this.

    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.

    Sadly I didn't include a way to make it BF2-like again.
    But it's more realistic and convenient to use the way it is now, so I will keep it.

    Error in sense of big, red flashy "error" text?
    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.

    There currently is only a SVN repository. If you don't know what that is, there is a tutorial here.
    And remember, this stuff is under development. Don't cry if something looks unfinished to you.
    http://weadco.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Addons
    Extract "WAC Base" and "WAC Helicopter" from this to your addons folder.
    Note: the base has some scripts you might not want to use, most of them can be disabled in spawnmenu/utilities.

    To use the joystick, you need the Joystick Module.

    There are already some user-made helicopters on garrysmod.org.
