UPDATE

---------

*****REMOVE ALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF mar_f18.pbo/fz_f18.pbo/mar_pilot.pbo*****

Hello!

It has been a long time since I done anything with the F/A-18 and I would like to say thanks to all of you who have taken interest in this project. This version has been sitting on my shelf for too long and I thought I would release it. It is not 100% complete, but many of the previous issues have been fixed (at least I hope they are). I know some of you will find issues and make them known. I will try to iron them out as they come, but I cannot guarantee fixing them in a timely manner.

All of the textures have been redone by my homeboy Pharohx.. he did an awesome job!

To avoid problems.... PLEASE delete any older versions of mar_f18.pbo/fz_f18.pbo/mar_pilot.pbo

* FIXED: MMA - Need to make corrections on the ViewPilot view. pilots and gunners heads seems too off center (HIGH)

Great job Meatball! You've given this old bird another chance at life, and it's wonderful seeing her from OFP and still living strong with a makeover thanks to those of you who worked on her :)

That's because what you linked is the F-18 C/D, this is E/F which is larger.

Great to see all of you are excited, but I just got a message from Mandoble and he would like for me to remove the MMA due to future updates could cause problems. It should be ok for now, because MMA was an extra addition, it was not in the Required Addons section. I am going to upload a new one without MMA. Stay tuned for updates about MMA. Once again MMA is NOT REQUIRED.

Using MMA is however a great bonus to this addon..

ALL MIRRORS PLEASE UPDATE YOUR DOWNLOAD!!!!

I updated the first post download.

I removed MMA, GLT Missilebox and GLT RAW from the included addons to make a smaller sized folder. I left mar_pilot.pbo included.

THIS ADDON REQUIRES:

GLT Missilebox

GLT RAW

mar_pilot (INCLUDED)

So you must keep up to date with them.

Ahhh have a break and take some time to relax :)

Thanks mate!
