That 5th shot is amazing.... :dance: ....!
The amount of detail that some of the designers put into their work leaves me breathless, and that shot shows it up nicely!

Great set, Arkanoid......the only downside of this outstanding aircraft is the lack of a virtual cockpit :(

It is a native FSX model though, so I use the default FA-18 VC with it ;)

1) Open the Rafale M folder and the FA-18 folder in two separate windows.

2) Open Rafale "model" folder and FA-18 "model" folder. Notice the FA-18 has an Interior.mdl file?

3) Copy and paste the "FA-18_Interior.mdl" file into the Rafale model folder.

4) Now open the Rafale model CFG and the FA-18 model CFG Notice the interior line of the FA-18 (interior=FA-18_Interior)?

5) Copy and paste the "interior=FA-18_Interior" into the Rafale model CFG.

6) Now delete the Rafale "panel" folder and replace with a copy of the FA-18 "panel" folder.

7) Open the Rafale "texture" folder and look for the "texture" "CFG" file. Open it and delete the text. Replace with this text:

[fltsim]

fallback.1=..\..\Rafale M 3x1275litres\texture.VC
fallback.2=..\..\FA-18\Texture
fallback.3=..\..\..\..\Scenery\Global\texture
fallback.4=..\..\..\..\..\..\Scenery\Global\texture

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Now the VC is merged but the eyepoint will need to be moved.

8 ) Now open the Rafale "aircraft" "CFG" file and scroll down until you see the [Views] section.

9) Delete the existing [Views] text and replace with this:

[Views]
eyepoint=11.7, 0.0, 3.72
zoom=.5

-------------------------

Now we've got a VC and our eyepoint is correctly placed. The only problem now is that the default FA-18 texture is a Blue Angel color scheme and is visible from inside the VC. If this is acceptable to you then happy flying! If not continue reading.

What I did to remedy this is to choose one of the other liveries that more closely matches the actual exterior of the Rafale.

10) Open "Texture.11" in your FA-18 folder and copy all of the "dds" files.

11) Paste these in the FA-18 "Texture" folder and overwrite when prompted. You will lose the Blue Angel 1 paint scheme for your FA-18, but I never fly the default FA-18 anyway.

Now you won't see a blue and yellow fuselage through the VC!


I think that should cover it. If you have any difficulties just let me know and I'll try to help you through them O0

It's a much more complex process with a non-default aircraft........give me another minute and I'll see what I can do with that particular model 8-)
