FSX FA-18C Hornet HaniMod1.1 Installation?

Post by DaveB » Tue Sep 18, 2012 1:09 pm

Can anyone help my install this mod ? The download doesn't have any instructions as of what to do with the files within the "Read Me" file

Any help would be great as I'm pretty new to FSX and this is my first visit to this forum :)

Hi Dave, sorry for the delay in replying, but I have only just noticed you post was waiting approval.

Firstly, welcome to SurClaro.

Secondly, could you post up a link to where you obtained this mod, just so we can have a quick look and work out what needs to be done.

Thanks

Mel.

Need to know which version it is, to help. Michal had to versions of the 1.1, a V2, and a V3. So we need to know which one you have. :D

Here is a link http://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/ ... c-hanimod/

I'll be happy with just this mod but you say there are later ones I'll have to do a search.

Anyway for the time being this mod will do :)

I will cover the basic install.

DELETE ANY PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF THIS A/C BY THIS AUTHOR.

I downloaded the file to a new folder on my desktop, I then placed the zip file inside this folder (BTW, I am using the rar decompiler, this will work with zip files).

Unzip, or decompile into this folder, you will then see four folders appear plus the readme file (which is not that informative for people who have not done too much of this).

The folder we are interested in, is the one named "Microsoft Flight Simulator X".

Open this folder and you will now see the three we need to install, they are:

EFFECTS
GAUGES
SIMOBJECTS


Firstly effects navigate your way to the Microsoft FSX Games folder on your HD, open this up any will find no end of folders inside, look down and you will see the three folders same as you have on your desktop from the effects file on your desktop, copy and paste the contents inside the effects folder, and then go to the main FSX effects folder, and paste these inside.

Do the same with the gauges folder, inside your desktop gauges folder there is a zip file, DO NOT UNPACK IT... copy and paste that into the main FSX Gauges folder.

Now we come to "SimObjects" open it up and you will see another folder called "Airplanes" open this up and you will find the two files we need to install, they are:

FA-18 HaniMod V2 O.R.G.L
FA-18 HaniMod V2 O.R.G.G


Drag your mouse pointer over both of these until they appear in a blue box, right click, and copy, paste these into the same folder inside main FSX folder marked SimObjects/Airplanes, you will see other already in there, find a clear space and right click and hit copy.

You have now installed the aircraft.........

I have gone into detail assuming you have not done this before, if you already know how to do all of the above, then my apologies, I assumed you didn't know.

I have installed this a/c tried and tested and found it to be very good, no reported problems...... as yet.

Mel.

So Mel, would you recommend this V2, or should I try the V3?? Haven't used this download for the F/A 18.

I'll need to look into V3 and see what if any the advantages are.
