Hello DCS Pilots. Welcome to this topic about the VSN F/A-18D that is using the F/A-18C Cockpit and EFM.

This does not affect the C Model At all. You can fly both!!!

The VSN Textures have been redone by Strider32

Liveries included are just RAAF Skins that all of them have been done from scratch a lot of detail has been added. Made by Strider32, Josh-109

To get this Mod to work you will need The F/A-18C Module, and JSGME.

F/A-18D v5 Change Log

Updated to Latest Open Beta Patch

Fixed Landing light

Updated RAAF Repaints.

Mod Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rYcJsjP-9bCPvevdn1QAMf6f6QcAysZv/view?usp=sharing

Repaints are:

RAAF, CF-18D, USN, Malasian, Spain and Swiss

All Repaints: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/157R2gfh53t2wtl_BMJzxZ9sVqeP3Jgqp?usp=sharing

 

Strider32 F/A-18D Template: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1addVDeKfZgzSwIrN1wcWzTsvbzvMxIoZ?usp=sharing

 

How to Install

1: Unzip the FA-18D.rar

2: Cope file to your JSGME _MODS Folder.    OR you can copy it straight in to your main DCS game Folder but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT!!!! as when the game updates it will kill the Mod

 

Known Issues,

1. Will not have full F/A-18C sounds like engines or any kind of APU sounds and out side sounds

2. Could be some carrier issues like landing hook may not catch wire (i don't do carrier type flying as much)

3. If flying with minors you will see two glass cockpit model

4. When canopy up a mask will show up in the cockpit view.

5. Speed brake works but will not see the model of the air brake work. but when flying MP if you see a other D hornet flying you can see there's going in and out.

6.HMD is broken

 

I would like to point out that I did not make the model just edit .lua files. Model is from the VSN Team

and the original Textures. Cockpit is the DCS F/A-18C. I don't want to take credit from other Teams. Just want to make DCS more enjoyable with others.

Known Issues,

1. Will not have full F/A-18C sounds like engines or any kind of APU sounds and out side sounds

Wouldn't this actually make the whole module pointless if there's no sounds at all? or is this still using the VSN sounds inside and out?

There are normal jet sounds like FC3 jet sound. What dcs have given the C model they encrypt there sounds so moders can not piggy back off but it has sounds just not the C model sound files

The file for the pylons is located in the Textures folder, named FA-18D_PTB. Regrading the fuel tanks, this mod uses the same fuel tanks as the DCS F/A-18C.

Thank you. I tried loading the FA-18D_PTB texture file on Gimp, It wouldn't let me unsupported. So i took it from the original VSN_F-18D, but still having issues with the pylon.

Is there any way to make this aircraft capable of catching wires on the Aircraft carrier? Even with the hook down it won't catch any, despite flying the ball to perfection. Yes, I saw in the known bugs that this may be an issue, but is there any way for the mod author to do something about this?
