Scratch that, it works. Lets just say, there will be no brakes in the air. Just pitch back. Horn apparently makes the delorean pitch back. Handbrake is fine.

and just remembered............horn is the hover button.

i love the idea seriously. and yeah i always thought too that doc had another ascending/descending control that we didn't see somewhere. one of the times we see the delorean flying that i like the most is the one you see em above trees and then dodging em when they chase biff! be cool to be able to have it do that kind of moves in the mod.

I always thought that you can push the steering wheel in to dip down and go down and pull it out to pull up and move up.

old biff sure didn't take long to figure out how to drive it!

something i didn't quite get exactly: is there still gonna be a flying mode to once you reach... 45mph i think it is... kickin in or will the hover/helicopter mode be the only flying delorean mode from there on?

Aug 21 2007, 9:06pm Anchor

old biff was from 2015 so he probably has his Hover Licence :P

Aug 21 2007, 9:08pm Anchor

judging from how he RAMS those garbage cans, i'm not so sure :P

Aug 21 2007, 9:12pm Anchor

Well, not all license holders are good drivers. Some are really bad. Haven't you seen those youtube videos of stupid drivers? lol.

As for the 45 mph limit thing, it'll be a thing of the past. I'll make a vid soon.

Aug 21 2007, 9:20pm Anchor

righteous!!! (new flying mode)

i know... especially with a history of ramming things like biff has... (manure trucks, bushes on the clocktower park) or when he runs over those other bushes at the Tannen house. God he can't drive!

I much more curious, on how he knew how to turn on the time circuits, use the destination keypad. go to 1955, then refuel Mr. Fusion to get back to 2015. He's the smartest worst driver in history.

Aug 21 2007, 9:31pm Anchor

Doc did label stuff. And with a number keypad, I think it was obvious what NOV in numbers was. He wasn't a complete butthead if he lived for that long. 17 (1955)+60(2015)....77 years old.

Aug 21 2007, 9:32pm Anchor

I agree with that, but still Mr.Fusion, I don't think so.

Aug 21 2007, 9:40pm Anchor

Oh come on, Mr. Fusion must have been in every home by 2015. I'm sure Biff would know how to use it more then when Doc first came to 2015.

Aug 21 2007, 9:43pm Anchor

Maybe doc went further in time for the mr.fusion conversion. Nothing says that he didn't. He could have been anywhen before coming back to 1985 to pick-up Marty and Jennifer.

Aug 21 2007, 9:46pm Anchor

lol anywhen :P

Aug 21 2007, 9:50pm Anchor

yeah... i figured it might be a word. gosh dang it... haha

Aug 21 2007, 10:11pm Anchor

ok, video's done, uploading. Just remember, it's still in the beta stages. I will change sparrow to delorean, and the red thing you see in the vents won't be in the final. I just never changed the carcols for the sparrow, lol. Gonna have to fiddle around with acceleration speeds. And you think Biff was bad? Tommy's even worse. I would have done a scene with the delorean time traveling, but fraps likes to play with game timing and with fraps on, the delorean couldn't make it to 88. With it off, it could. So, I'm going to need to change that, because I have a feeling slow computers won't even be able to make it to 88, lol.

haha yeah i'm one of those. the computer i use for the mod is a pentium 1.8gig not so bad, but far from the best also. in an early stage of the mod, i remember talking with you delorean88us about the car being a helicopter and the problem was the collision file because of the rotors. i recall having my game crash because of that sometimes (randomly). is that still a concern?

man the vid is AWESOME!!! i love the new moves of the delorean! great job, i insist :D

Not anymore. What silver did was put the rotor dummies about 22000 feet off the vehicle, which caused it to crash. I just did 1000 and haven't seen any. I did do it at first at 22000, and it did indeed crash. I have yet to see one at 1000. Now, I'll show you why we can't have the dummies on the delorean itself and they have to be really high.

Aug 21 2007, 10:47pm Anchor

obviously, cause they would interfere with buildings beside it when getting too close to them. unless you're thinking of something else.

Aug 21 2007, 10:49pm Anchor

none of the vc buildings are 1000 units high. The city itself is around 5000x5000 i think.

Aug 21 2007, 10:51pm Anchor

really i wonder waht GTA 4 will be?
