A fun pack produced by developer Cayden Nguyen bringing the FSX/Acceleration model and included repaints to Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release as a port-over.  While a port-over, the developer has ensured that this pack performs in exceptional detail in the new sim with upscaled/upgraded textures for repaints and much more.

FA/18 Hornet in MSFS (2020) after installing the add-on.​The developer has announced that all of the textures have been upscaled to 8K to be more fluid and compatible with the new sim release.  Also, the legacy model has been converted and also modified - it's not a simple conversation (that anyone can do).

Repaints included;

  • Blue Angels
  • USMC

All of the textures based on the FSX model have been upscaled and recreated in 8K format compatible with the new MSFS specs.

The developer notes;

This is not a perfect study level aircraft as of right now there are no clickable switches, most panels aren't working, the gear is up by default when you spawn at a gate or ramp and when you spawn on a runway and, the engines take about 1-2 minutes to start up.

Installation

Simply download the F/A-18 Hornet zip file and extract both the "FA-18_Hornet" and, "legacy-vcockpits-instruments" into your MSFS Community Folder.

Additional notes from the developer;

The FSX F/A-18 Hornet was converted using MSFS Legacy Importer by Alex Marko. https://www.nexusmods.com/microsoftflightsimulator/mods/117

Microsoft Flight Simulator © Microsoft Corporation. F/A-18 Hornet was created under Microsoft's "Game Content Usage Rules" using assets from Microsoft Flight Simulator X Acceleration Expansion Package, and it is not endorsed by or affiliated with Microsoft. https://www.xbox.com/en-us/developers/rules
