for virtuali: i tried everything you said but the error comes again

I confirm the error only happens if you load a flight that was saved when a flight plan was active.

If you start from a flight that didn't had a flight plan active when it was saved, and you either create a flight plan from scratch, or you load a previously created flight plan (NOT a "Flight" a "Flight Plan"!!!) there's no crash.

Hi I am a new guy to this site and found very good articles on F18. My F18 following is not working:
ARC mode: this is done by rotating the small knob on the top left of the CENTER DDI, on the D-CTR position. I cannot rotate it.

No, nor can I, Compass Rose is the default.  If I put the cursor over the small knob on the centre DDI as described in the Flight Planning tutorial the cursor changes to a small fist but nothing happens.

Thank you.

To rotate the knob, you need to use the mouse wheel when the cursor changes shape

Dear Virtuali,

Thank you very much indeed for answering my questions so promptly and helpfully.

You answers and tutorials have made a good HUD excellent and also made the F-18 a good aircraft to fly.

Good job, I am very grateful.

Best Regards.

Hi all i am new, also if this guide is an old one i appreciated it a lot, really useful for me, thank you so much!

FS Dream Team,
I just wanted to post this note to say, 'thank you'.  I have always dreamed of having a modern jet fighter in MS flight simulator and you folks did it.  The quality and performance of the F/A-18 is second to none.  You all have done a really great job with this product.  Thank you.

May be i don't understand fine english, but.... is he (and others) thinking that F18 was developed in Fsx by Fsdreamteam?? :D


I also had the problem of the Fsx's crash pressing the Seq's soft button, it happens always if i had not created any flightplan, if a flightplan is created and loaded correctly it doesn't happens.
I hope this will be helpful for someone, also if this 3d is very old.

Yes, of course we did (although not entirely), and that's a well known fact in the flightsim community...which is why there's an F/A-18 forum here in the first place!

We made the Virtual Cockpit Panel (well, it's the only panel it has...), and all the systems/gauges programming. Captain Sim made the external model, and Microsoft made the Flight model and the Sound set. We also made the gauges for the EH-101 included in FSX Acceleration.

That explains why everything besides the virtual cockpit panel and gauges and system programmings, falls far behind in terms of quality.

Is there a way to add waypoints to a flight plan from within the cockpit? i.e. input the lat/long vs. using nav aids and/or fixes?

Additionally, is it possible to mark, capture, or create a waypoint at the aircraft's position using either the navigation system and/or the GPS?

I am currently pulling up the shift+z to grab a lat/long as I overfly a place of interest.

You can use the FSX Flight Planner. and enter an arbitrary waypoint by dragging the route line on the map. You can also use the Map to get Lat/Lon for an area.

Once the route is in the Flight Planner, the F-18 will use it, check the Flight Planning tutorial on the top of the forum.
