AH-64D Apache Longbow - Official Project

Description
THE AH-64D PROJECT

First things first, this project officialy started in February 2017 but it wouldn't have been possible without Franze & Nodunit's original work on A2, and their agreement to push it open source - hats down guys. The main goal of this project is to bring (like never ever before) an high fidelity AH-64D aircraft on A3 considering the engine limitations; this mod does directly aim towards simmers and real life pilots. Keep in mind, a lot of features are still WIP as the code is really complex.

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROJECT ?

Everyone is free to contribute as long as the provided work matches the initial project direction. Feeling interested ? Hop on Discord, PM me or leave me a message on Steam. You can also contribute to the project differently as other valuable ressources joined the project by bringing in some of the knowledge they have, from real world UH-60/AH-64D pilots to hardcore simmers and rotary wings enthusiasts. Also make sure you check out the AH-64D Project GitHub for most recent code updates. I'm currently looking for C/C#/C++ coders, an RTD developer for flight model tuning and a 3D artist to join the progress.

PREFLIGHT SETTINGS

This version of the AH-64D is NOT meant to be flown with Standard Flight Model (SFM). In order to avoid bugs, make sure you do have the following settings within A3, with Advanced Flight Model (AFM) enabled :
  • Enable Auto Trim
  • Enable Rough Landing
  • Disable Wind Effects
  • Disable Stress Damage

The mod team is releasing an update soon, many problems will be fixed!

Head over to the discord if you have coding experience and want to help, or to get your questions answered.

This mod is very great :steamthumbsup: . Are there any other mods like this?

I love the Apache always have - on my Exile server I run Support services with the Apache as a CAS option. Two things I have an issue with (maybe three but I think the third is a game mechanic issue). First one when AI are flying the Apache they don't close the doors. Second is they can't seem to use the front cannon at all. So no Hellfires, no Cannon just rockets all day.

Any suggestion to fixing this?
