Was thinking a bit, and I'm thinking of switching the delorean to be a helicopter. That way we get a non buggy hover mode that doesn't cause cars to disappear, and a standard camera that isn't all the way back. And you get those cool dust particles when you're over ground. Too bad trees would still move, but oh well.

Proposed controls. Standard ones of course, but adding two more. Horn would make the delorean go forward. Handbrake would make it slow down. I'll get around to it once i finish school stuff. And those other features.

Dont Delorean it will be harder to control and i like it the way it is.

unfortunately, it's for not for you to decide. By using the helicopter, it can now pitch and bank when hovering, but the main thing is....cars and peds don't disappear if you go on top of them. Learn to control using the new way, or change controls to suit your way.

Ok (but i will always remember this when u start to get complaints).

Aug 19 2007, 12:27am Anchor

i always get complaints, so it's not going to phase me.

Aug 19 2007, 12:36am Anchor

fine heres the first i dont want it you should make a poll

Aug 19 2007, 12:41am Anchor

i think it will be cool this way with the chopper instead of the RC vehicles I find it more easier to control.

Aug 19 2007, 1:10am Anchor

yeah chevron sure whatever besides i hate chevys

Aug 19 2007, 1:17am Anchor

I like the sound of this, the choppers are easier to control and I'd rather have a non buggy hover mode. The hunters handling is definitely the best handling to choose from if your going this route.

@ronnyboy
my names not referring to the car its referring to something from stargate....you dont like a feature thats put in tough luck deal with it or dont play it.

I like this idea as long as the DeLorean doesn't tilt forward every time you move forward cause I've seen other mods that reaplce the chopper with the DeLorean and to move forward it has to tip down. It won't be like that right?

Also, if you replace the sound on the blades and such surely all the other helicopters like the police chopper and news chopper would sound like 2015 cars?

Aug 19 2007, 10:00am Anchor

i like the helicopter idea

Aug 19 2007, 10:37am Anchor

no tilting at all. It will stay level unless you make it tilt. I can replace the sparrow, as it doesn't affect the sounds of the regular heli's

Ok that's cool then. In that case I'm all for it.

Aug 19 2007, 12:07pm Anchor

If so, there must be a button to make the sparrow fly like a plane.

Aug 19 2007, 3:09pm Anchor

That is the reason why the thread is called flying/hover, and why i had a proposed control that would create forward thrust like a plane.

Aug 19 2007, 3:56pm Anchor

ok now this is starting to sound better i thought it would fly like a heli regulary would but that sounds cool!

P.S. Sorry i snapped early just really pissed that my mom has banned me from going to bttf.com because m to obsessed buty im not im just near obsessed

Aug 19 2007, 4:07pm Anchor

oh, it can fly like a helicopter for the hover stuff. But then, you have a button that makes it go foward (not up, forward) like a real plane.

Aug 19 2007, 4:29pm Anchor

ok cool
PS no hard feelings fro m before right?

Aug 19 2007, 4:34pm Anchor

Hold on how would you steer it then? I no it won't tilt forward and back but will it tilt left and right like it does now when steering? But a good thing about having it in the helicopter is it will be able to strafe left and right, correct?

Aug 19 2007, 4:39pm Anchor

it steers. Helicopters yaw, roll, and pitch, if you remember. And yes, it will strafe. And if you let go, it'll decelerate automatically.

Aug 19 2007, 8:33pm Anchor

How could doc control all this with just a regular steering wheel??? :P

Aug 19 2007, 8:35pm Anchor

good question. Same way as a yoke?

Aug 19 2007, 9:00pm Anchor

I'm pretty sure the Hover Conversion Company also modifies the steering wheel to have extra axis points to control height.

Aug 19 2007, 9:17pm Anchor

Well, started coding..........and there's a big problem. Any forward speed tends to make the helicopter tilt back all the way.
