[TUT] Installing planes/jets

Some folks still have trouble installing planes/jets into GTA IV, so i decided to produce this modest tutorial to support those people.

Editing the handling.dat and autos.ide files

Typically, when you download an plane/jet you will have an readme.txt and inside this readme you will have guidelines about the installation of the model:

It indicates that you need to edit handling.dat and cars.ide files, they typically are situated at:

C:Program FilesRockstar GamesGrand Theft Auto IVcommondata

1st we require to make positive that the house Study only is unmarked on the file properties (for handling.dat and automobiles.ide):

Now open handling.dat with notepad and locate the indicated line primarily based on readme, generally we will replace the airtug automobile, so, search for airtug, you will uncover a line like this:

Now we copy the line from the readme.txt and replace this line in the handling.dat:

Pay attention to an detail, we have two lines to replace in handling.dat, the second line we find looking for the $ char:

Now we copy the indicated line in readme and insert above the first line that starts with $ in handling.dat:

Save and close the file handling.dat.

Now it really is time to edit vehicles.ide, after generating sure that this file is not Study only, open it with notepad and search for airtug (or very same name employed in handling.dat):

Now copy the indicated line in the readme and replace the vehicles.ide line:

Save and close the automobiles.ide file.

Installing the model

Now if you open your game and enter in a airtug as driver you will be in a position to fly. What we need to have to do now it really is set up the model, Open the OpenIV, select your game, open the folder modelscdimages then open the file automobiles.img and click in the button Edit mode:

Now you can use the menu Edit > Add or drag and drop the files:


Crucial: The name of the model is all here, if you edit handling of taxi and insert the model airtug, items wont perform as expected, pay interest to the model name often.

Similar process can be employed for vehicles, bikes, helicopters and boats, just pay consideration to the lines that you should add or replace :)

Tip :)

For jets you can use the Air Combat IV script to make factors much more cool
For helicopters you can use the Heli Combat script to have an much more intense combat
