Coal is obvious, but a coal-powered heli is all but impossible IRL. if you don't mind it depending on Technic, you could give it an inventory to place batteries in. Or, if you just want to increase cost, maybe add an heli:engine part, some steel, maybe pipes or stainless steel if you don't mind the dependencies.

I am working on heli formspec with fuel bar and damage bar, but have some troubles. Of course I will add engine.

I'm having a problem on multi-player where when another player exits the helicopter. Their turning access rotates the entire character on their head instead of turning their body.

Thanks for reporting, dmonty!

This bug was "invented" in Minetest 0.4.9, and replaced another bug. I have tryed to fix this, but can`t do anything=(
In 0.4.8 there is no wrong rotations.

It seems to me that set_detach() function changes axes.

I had a look at the minetest source and it seems that set_attach allows for rotating the character as you have here in the on_rightclick function:
Code: Select all
clicker:set_attach(self.model, "Root", {x=0,y=0,z=-10}, {x=-90,y=0,z=-90})


If I change this to the following the character gets out of the heli just fine with no rotation bug. However he rides the heli wrong:
Code: Select all
clicker:set_attach(self.model, "Root", {x=0,y=0,z=-10}, {x=0,y=0,z=0})


Your right in that the set_detach() function in minetest source has a statically set 0,0,0 for rotate which leaves the character at -90, 0, -90 when he entered the heli.

I wonder if the right_click and puch could be modified to:
1) set_detach ( removes player from heli )
2) set_attach ( to un-rotate the player )
3) set_detach to exit with correct rotation.

It would be possible to make it less square?

Maybe you can create different helicopters. (Hunt, exploration, mining)

In earlier version of Helicopter mod there was a rocket launcher.

Hunt helicopter it`s very interesting. Sneaking heli =)

I've submitted this rotation issue on the Bug Forum.

I have try your heli with the last git of minetest becouse all the shaking ans stop problems are fixed but i have some problems on attack to the heli, if i'm at 307 12,5 212 when i rightclick the heli i'm teleported to 107 12,5 012, i have try with ufo, carts and hovercraft but that appens only with the heli :( (my preferred)

Thanks for your great work, i love the design of your model and is merged nicely inside the game

Fixed the rotation bug(s)
Code: Select all
--clicker:set_attach(self.model, "Root", {x=0,y=0,z=-10}, {x=-90,y=0,z=-90})
clicker:set_attach(self.model, "FrameTransformMatrix", {x=0,y=10,z=0}, {x=0,y=90,z=0})


Note I also had to move some files into subfolders.
models/root.x
models/heli.x
models/motor.x
textures/blades.png
textures/blades_inv.png
textures/cabin_inv.png
textures/Glass.png

Thanks. Also this work:
clicker:set_attach(self.model, "", {x=0,y=10,z=0}, {x=0,y=0,z=0})

In earliers version this didn`t work, OK I moved files.

At this time I added sound for heli, also fixed rotate bug, made new model with better UVunwrap.
Soon I will upload Helicopter v0.4 !

Another bug that I found is that heli very good in under water swimming =). I am trying to fix it.

Also I upload my mod to GitHub (spent a lot of time for it). GitHub link

Could you please not use link shorteners? There is no need for them in a forum.

Nope. It`s a Trebuchet MS font drawed in graphic editor.

It`s easy to navigate in head post while I am designing it(it`s 10 times less length). Also it helps for monitoring count of downloads. I do not link to any ads or something like that. If someone afraid that link is virused, copy link and add ".info" at the end(works with goo.gl). This link will provide all information about unshortened link.
Why do you ask me don`t use link shortener?

Cool mod, i'm having a problem with it though : if i place heli on top of my house and enter heli, i fall on the floor and it just flies up and i can't do anything to stop it.
Lost 2 choppers like that :s


Edit : in fact even when i put it on "real" floor, like a mountain, if i try to get in , floor disapears a few seconds, then all is apearing again but when i try to move i'm out of helicopter (but can hear its sound). Weird because my sons can play it fine.

Hybrid Dog, are you talking about the game minetest_game? It is discontinued. You can ask the maintainers of other games (e.g. minetest next, carbone) if they want to add it.
