USCG Defender class [Add-On / Replace]



A small boat used in large numbers by the United States Coastguard.
Thanks to nathanjamesddg151 for getting the model so I could convert it. It took some time due to the model mesh not perfectly optimized, but the result is quite satisfying. The engines in the rear are turning, as are the blades. Flag on the pole can wave in the wind. Steering wheel and dials working, the interior can be entered and 4 people seated. The light on top works and you can toggle sirens on the replace version (I didn't get it to work on the add-on version yet). Model is dirt mapped and the glass shatters when being shot at.

This model is UNLOCKED and you're free to edit/improve it with proper credits given (Bought by nathanjamesddg151, converted by SkylineGTRFreak and special thanks to PNWParksFan for help with .meta settings)

Like I have said before, I'm really eager to release more aircraft (military/civillian), helicopters and military vehicles. If you like my work and want to see more, please show your support donating. It helps me affording the things I need to continue modding (ZM3, model files, etc)

And thanks alot for the support I have recieved already :)

    When I exit the cabin/driver seat, I cannot get back in to drive. I can walk around the cabin but cannot drive. I have to respawn...

    @PNWParksFan till seats it is okay. but doors and movable dummies cant work with vehicle_type_boat flag. and this flag makes stuff sail on water. but till flag /type also causes doors, movable parts & weapons non working. i had initial success with seaplane's pontoons and sub handling but no way, it looks ugly and full of bugs. Like skylinegtrfreak said, better leave the idea of weaponized boats. plus doors etc. unless rockstar releases a new dlc with new vehicle class.

    @skylineGTRFreak I noticed a little thing which is annoying once you know it's there ;)

    On the back of the boat, you see the red side and the metal boat. There are a lot of black anti-slip squares on that metal next to the red sides. I noticed that on the back there ís one on the left side but there isn't one on the right side, maybe for the next update? ;)

    @jellelamers at this moment the text is actually a modeled part. It can't be edited. We are working on a UV mapped version of the boat which will allow for changing the base color and the text, but it's taking some time. It'll be uploaded as an update to this file when it's ready.

    @PNWParksFan - Sounds awesome Sir! Finally a legit LAPP replacement for the ugly ass Predator.

    @PNWParksFan excellent news, can't wait for that. The predator five-o looks indeed like a ugly door wedge.

    @Inspector Callahan not sure yet, the person who was going to do the UV mapping isn't currently available. Still working on it!

    Hi, is there any way I can edit the US COAST GUARD text? Seems like its part of the boat and not textured.

    Any updates to this? Anyway we could get an improved layout to fix the entering & exiting animations?

    @jellelamers we haven't yet made a version with the text removed from the model and changed to a texture.

    Can you make a military boat with a turret? Like this: http://media.independent.com/img/croppedphotos/2015/04/16/Port_of_LB.jpg
