Do your other mods you have in there work okay?

Are you just replacing an aircraft type with another for a single unit?

From what I can see the default texture seems wrong, you're referencing the decals, not the texture itself. And a note, the VFA2CAG texture is a singular texture, not designed for decals. I mean you can put it on because you like that, but you'll have the same texture for all aircraft.

You have to download the file from the Downloads section, as that was a skin I made after releasing the plane.

it's not working i downloaded your fa 18 (this one)

and put it into the aircraft folder(objects/aircraft/FA 18E BKII) and change the default texture VFA-115 CAG 2009 in the campaign data ini

but when go to campaign and create a one (operation kadesh) i can only choose from aircraft selection is the default one not FA 18  E BKII

i think the problem is that my modified campaign files are not being detected by the game or some thing like that

I'm not a campaign guru by any stretch of the imagination, so I can't help you there. And that's strange, the VFA-2 CAG should show up in the Downloads, as I could have swore I uploaded it years ago.

EDIT: Apparently I never uploaded the skin for download. I'll upload it today so it'll be available.

I take it you have changed the dates on the FA-18F so it is operational in 1956?

Nation should also be USN, not USAF, and you'll need to edit some weapons so they'll be usable for that time period.

Hi Roony,

A couple of things I've noticed.

First, I don't see why you put your Israel campaing file in the Vietnam folder instead of the Israel folder (since you're using a stock Israel campaign, I assume you have SF2 Israel installed). However, as long as you FA-18 is also in your Vienam folder, it should work fine.

Second, as MigBuster pointed out, you must change the 'ServiceStartYear' in the aircraft_data.ini of your plane (in 56 the FA-18 was probably not even close to the drawing board). And your screenshots show that your FA-18 nation is USAF. But the IsraelME terrain has 'LimitedNations' set to True (in IsraelME.INI), and USAF is not listed in the 'LimitedNationList'. I'm not sure but that may be a problem.
