Thanks for the new update.

 

Quick thing: the pilot camera has the ability to freely lock on the ground and track vehicles but the WSO has neither. Any chance you can give the WSO camera the same features ?

-can't attach buddypod

-your agm 65 (2X) and gbu (2X) should better use the vanilla's "gbu-double-pylon", for the rockets and bombs clip in each other, when set to pylons next to each other.

-also to prevent clipping, pylon 3 and 4 should be restricted to carry one bomb/missile only.

-pylon 9 of the f18-F can't be set to wso, because it's too close to pylon 10.

Thanks, if someone figures out how to give these abilities to the WSO camera, we'd be very interested to learn how to do this...

The buddypod will appear in mission, it's not visible in Eden.

On the pylon settings and clipping, we have a very liberal position on this: players should have all kind of possibilities, but need to take care of those clipping and unrealistic loadouts themselves.

Good catch on the F/A-18F Eden loadout menu, I've changed it in the dev build:

?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-forma

-buddy pod only appears on pylon 11(5-8 can be selected, but will not be shown ingame)

-when operating air-refuel with AI, the AI-pilot always flies too fast, so player can never reach the fuel-hose. 

-radar recognizes enemies as "ambigous" (tested with shilka+t100, SP)

-t-100 is displayed on radar only below 4 km distance and with active radar its info (type, speed, distance, etc) will be shown only below 2km distance.

(radar issues could be some bug from bohemia, because i recognized this with other mod-planes and vanilla-planes, too)

Unfortunately we got informed of a problem causing severe lag when multiple Hornets are placed in a mission. We will take a close look at the freshly introduced scripts and work on a hotfix to solve this problem.

We now have a fixed version ready for internal testing. Once a multiplayer test has been conducted, a hotfix release will be rolled out.

This is a maintenance (hotfix) release for the F/A-18. The scripts used in the Super Hornet caused a massive amount of lag, especially when multiple planes were placed in a mission. This hotfix addresses the issue and helps to maintain a stable frame rate with multiple Hornets on the map.
Thanks to Leshrack for updating the scripts and the whole team for testing the new version.

2018-06-06 config, scripts
    - increase wheelSteeringSensitivity from 1.5 to 3, to reduce taxi turn radius
    - fix performance issue in scripts
    - remove rudder dependence on flaps
2018-06-03 config
    - decluttered pylon loadout menu

Hey, could you remove your mod´s Air to air missiles or at least the R77 and Aim120? I honestly only use the vanilla AMRAAM/ R77 anyway because it has better missile physics, and it is really confusing to always pick the right one. MIssion makers or logistics rearming an aircraft often will not know the difference between the mod´s radar guided missiles and the vanilla ones.

Remove these missiles because one player prefers others, I think I know the answer to this question and you may not like it.....

No, they are the SAME missiles. This mods aim120 and R77 depict the same missiles and are supposed to work the same as vanilla. Just that vanilla is modeled better when it comes to range and Probability of Kill. And last time i checked the radar guided mod missiles were heatseaking.

 They're not entirely the same. They don't work with Blastcore for instance.

We're currently discussing internally what to do with the custom missilebox of the F/A-18 and SU-35. Clearly when it was created there were no comparable vanilla models around. Now this has changed and our limited modding time is probably spent better than mimicking/copying existing vanilla assets. However, it's too soon to tell the result, but it might well be that we axe all but a few needed models from the missilebox.

This is a maintenance release for the F/A-18. The custom missilebox weapons have been deprecated and replaced by vanilla weapons. Additionaly a new mempoint 'pos_launchbar' was introduced allowing more precise placement on the carriers (Freedom and Nimitz) catapults. Further the canopy is now using the excellent Jets DLC glass and some scripts were improved.

 

PS: compatibility with ITC air was maintained as well.

Some news to share on the F/A-18E/F. RiverX has created a clickable cockpit, powered by scripts provided by Yax (ITC air). The result can be seen in this short WIP video:
