“TopFun’s rise in popularity back in the ’80’s can only be attributed to this classic, miniaturized biplane. Populating the mall airspaces moreso than flies around rotting burgers in nearby trash cans, or re-enacting war scenarios as the Latin American gangs duke it out in a good ol’ fashioned gang war, it’s sure to be just as much of an eye-catcher today as it was back in the day. Speaking both literally and figuratively – the propeller is quite sharp, I tell ya.”
This is an RC Baron, a small and cleaned up version of the Duster. If you do not get the reference you are either under 19 or haven’t played video games back in 2002.
Originally finished on May 24, 2019, it was the second exclusive on the server, and another project I did for fun. After the plane was completed we have created a new gamemode, Death From Above, which involved Ivan’s fully custom-made “Hinterland” map and my RC Baron. There were two teams, runners and attackers. The runners had to survive as long as possible, while the attackers (starting with up to 4) were flying around dropping bombs on the runners. If the runners died in any way they would become attackers. The whole gamemode was basically a reference to Bombs Away! in GTA Vice City, it was pretty fun. Now, with the server shutting down, I guess it’s time to release it. Shout outs to everyone who contributed to the project over the years: TheIvaneh, Racer, Cyankill, Nutrilicious, BeetleComet, Tacksy, Sewasd, jeffMOD, Epic_Viper, theDaimer, NismoSkyline95, gbl08ma, and Ace, and making it one of the best and most wonderful servers to play on. It will be greatly missed.
-Can apply optional guns, and has basic support for dropping bombs (Note: Requires custom scripts.) Modkit ID: 710
-Has LODs. But to be fair this plane is a LOD in itself.
-It has some traffic colors because… reasons. I guess. Includes the iconic red paintjob.
-No, I do not skip on translations, even if there’s only the vehicle name to translate.
-Custom sounds. If you think flies buzzing is annoying, boy do I have some bad news for you.
Drop the “sprc2” folder into dlcpacks and add the line “dlcpacks:/sprc2/” to dlclist.xml in update.rpf/common/data.
—THINGS TO NOTE—
-Game version 1.0.1868.0 and above is required for the mod to work properly. Not my problem if you don’t have it.
-Also I tested the DLC pack (on a clean install). Crashes are unlikely, but if they happen let me know there’s probably a mod conflict somewhere. You might also need the Packfile Limit Adjuster and a proper gameconfig.
