Does the FSXBA F/A-18C HORNET v18.4.131 come with an AI so that you can do a Blue Angel Airshow in FSX Acceleration and does it also come with all of the Marine and Fleet Textures as well as the Blue Angels Textures

You mean like an AI Hornet? No.
Having said that, there are a number of recorder software of different kinds so you can record what you do, and then play it back, flying formation with it as it goes. Things like FSRecorder, FormationSetup.zip by Jerry Beckwith, and  so on. Just Google AI Formations FSX and you'll get several viable links to different softwares to accomplish what you want.

Yes, it does. As has been mentioned before, make sure the little box at the bottom of the Aircraft Select screen marked SHOW ALL VARIATIONS is checked, and select FSX Blue Angels as a manufacturer. You will see all the different paints available.

Hope this helps...

Agreed. Oculus is a game changer for immersion! Just sucks that you have to feel around for everything lol

Sux worse that some are physically incapable of using VR. You need 2 good eyes to use any VR system. Leaves me out entirely.

Oh well, them's the breaks of NavAir, as we used to say Cheesy
Have fun, all!

Hi Pat,
I do not have good eyes, (astigmatic and hyperopic) and I fly without problems in VR with an Oculus Rift. I do not wear the glasses under the helmet. Wink

Ahh, but at least you have the requisite TWO eyes, Jean.

VR doesn't work with just one. It uses the different pictures on the two sides to "fool" your brain into thinking what it's receiving is in 3D. It works much like reality. You get two slightly different views in your two eyes, and your brain interprets it as a 3D world. It's one of the important things your brain learns early on in you existence.

I haven't seen the world in 3D since '92, when a wild mustang ran across in front of my bike. No way to stop at 60 MPH. Scraped me right off the back of the bike, and we all went bouncing down the highway together for a ways. Thank whatever deity you prefer for helmets, though! Apparently my head bounced of the centerline for a while, as it wound up with the neatest, bright yellow stripe down the side of it. Knocked the retina off the back of the eyeball on the left side.
Went through surgery to try and repair it, but to no avail. No retina, eyeball no worky.
Took me a while to learn the new way of seeing. Try closing one eye, and viewing the world. It appears the same at first glance, but try and pick up a pencil off the table, or have someone toss you a ball. You won't catch it, I promise. Made driving a REAL adventure, at first.  Grin

So yeah, that's my long winded way of saying that I am sure VR is a wonderful thing, but I'll never be able to use it, for anything. Flying or not.

Just a "thing" one has to deal with, like it or not. I would have loved to toss a football with my kids, or play Ultimate Frisby, like I did in high school, or juggle, as I used to be able to do rather well, but hey, wish in one hand...  Cheesy

If you have a VR system, utilize it, and enjoy it!  Wink

Unfortunate story Pat.  Played around with Oculus Rift a little tonight, minus the use of one eye.... Obviously the 3D effects are gone as you've previously mentioned, but even so, the sense of scale and the very accurate head tracking that you get with it is still worth the investment if you can.  I'll have to warn you though, it is a costly investment.  Especially if your rig isn't already ready to handle it and you have to make upgrades...

my two cents....

Hi Pat,
Sorry for your traffic accident and its aftermath.

I was going to test the vision in the oculus by closing an eye, but jimi08 was faster.
For me, the big advantage of the RV is that we are "in" the plane.

You should be able to try one.

Thanks guys. I appreciate to comments. Cheesy

IF, and as you can see, it's a big IF  Grin , we can scrape the cash together, I'll get a VR of some sort, if for no other reason than the immersion factor. I may not get true 3D, as y'all noticed, but it may well be worth it. If nothing else, it'll give my lovely wife a new techno-toy to play with when she goes flying  Wink
Now, I just have to talk her into it LOL!

Thanks again for the concern, all!
Have fun.
Pat☺

Hey Jimi, I'm transitioning slowly across to P3D and I've downloaded the latest prototype version for v4, but every time I install it (yes, I've tried several times), I don't have a HUD or FLIR. Am I missing something obvious? Is anyone else having the same problem?
Cheers

I downloaded the AIRound V2.0 for FSX can this be used to create a Blue Angel Airshow using the FSXBA F/A-18C HORNET v.18.4.103 for fsx

The latest unofficial releases that have been released are for FSX and not P3D.  Since FSX tends to be more picky about coding format than P3D, I tend to do most of my developments in FSX then adapt to P3D.   P3D had a completely different way of implementing the FLIR so I still have to do that as well.

When I get time, I'll post aP3D prototype version.
