CS Weapon VC 3dHUD For Acceleration F/A-18.

CS Weapon VC 3dHUD For Acceleration F/A-18.

Use notepad to open all .cfg and .xml files.

1. Aircraft.CFG change eye point to:

eyepoint = -17.0, 0.0, 3.38 //-17.0, 0.0, 3.5

Had to, just was not looking at the cal. circle through the hud. Captain Sims eyepoint is -17.0, 0.0, 3.358.

2.CSWeapon.XML change under -in FA-18 folder:

"Do not edit while F/A-18 is loaded in FSX" notepad!
I've included the CSWeapon.XML so you can just swap em out if you want.

3.In FA-18 folder\panel.csweapon\Panel.CFG change:

//gauge03=fa-18!MFD, 578, 579, 440, 440, 4 NOSCANLINES // Original F/A-18 Hud !!!
gauge03=CSWeapon!hud3d, 569.8, 523, 462, 500, 4 NOSCANLINES // CS Weapon VC hud3d !!! Width, height, hor. size, vert. size (all in pixels)

Thanks for all the help from the Captain Sim forum!
For any help with this consult the CAPTAIN SIM COMMUNITY FORUM › Weapon for FSX › General › USE WITH THIRD-PARTY AIRCRAFT - THE ONLY THREAD.

Credit goes to Captain Sim and microsoft, all I did was some figuring and editing.

Because I am thinking of equipping the Acceleration Hornet with the following weapons: 2x Aim-9 Sidewinder, 2x AGM-84 Harpoon, 2x AGM-65 Maverick, and 2x Aim-120 AMRAAM. Plus the 20mm cannon.

Only if you purchase the payware Captain Sim F-18D (it's actually a "B" model), you can configure the drop tanks/bombs/AIMs

I wonder if the flight model changes so it would be equipped with external weapons stations.
