#Experimental #8K Resolution Drag and Drop

This is the original F/A-18 from FSX that I've converted and upscale the textures to 8K. Afterburners are also working and for the best experience use Legacy in Flight Model.

NOTE: Not everything is perfect as there are no clickable switches and panels are not working.

Installation: Just download the F/A-18 and drag and drop both the, "fa-18" and, "legacy-vcockpits-instruments" into your Community Folder.

Model was converted using MSFS Legacy Importer by Alex Marko. https://www.nexusmods.com/microsoftflightsimulator/mods/117

    When I spawn at an airport...The landing gear is up and wont go down. The plane just sits on the ground like a belly landing...

    What button do you press to activate afterburners?

      The afterburners should turn on after 80% throttle.

      If Asobo ever does fix the clickable switches issue that would be great but its very unlikely https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/make-legacy-cockpit-buttons-work-again/325942 and for the screens, I'm still trying to learn how to convert them.

    AWESOME! i still don´t see the afterburner, maybe it is because i´m using the USA update version, but no matters, I LOVE IT!! it´s very fun fullthrottle, reach the clouds instantly, descend to the cannyons and fly low and fast, thank you very much!! please convert more planes like this, i would like to see the Mirage F-1. Regards 😊

    The cockpit needs a lot of work, however the aircraft handles very well.
    Without a functioning cockpit that lets this F18 down you have done very well my friend to have such an iconic aircraft re-service. thank you for your hard work.

      Pour passer en mode hérité dans Microsoft Flight Simulator, accédez simplement à Paramètres, Modèle de vol et passez de Moderne à Héritage et pour le FA-18, faites simplement glisser et déposez le fichier dans votre dossier Communauté.
