This mod adds a biplane and helicopter the player can acquire. These are craftable from level 1, but require parts for the vehicle you want and are crafted on a workbench. Biplane parts come from biplane crash sites, and heli parts from heli crash sites. These will spawn randomly while you are exploring any area. Use a wrench, ratchet, or impact driver to salvage the parts. You may also find parts in the optional POI. If you create a new RWG with this modlet, it will spawn the POI. If you don’t, the mod is still playable just fine. This POI is targetable with all trader missions at all tiers.
Biplane and helicopters are much more efficient on fuel use than vanilla vehicles. The biplane is really useful for getting across entire maps quickly, while the helicopter is slower, but allows up to 2 passengers to ride along and can hover.
This is a modlet and does not require a world restart, but if you want the included POI to spawn, you’ll need a new RWG. The POI is not mandatory to have, though. The mod will work just fine without it.
Tested and works with Alpha 19.4 b3
Recommended to be played single player or multiplayer. Works fine on servers as well.
- (new) Added them to trader loots, but at a lower rate.
- Did a quick change to remove biplane and helicopter recipes from loot. Was left in by mistake since the first iteration required learning the recipes.
