Ok mais c'est en anglais :
______________________________________________________________Welcome to the weapons pack for FSX!___________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________Created and modified by Chris Sykes!___________________________________________________________
This weapons pack is divided into two sections, the US weapons pack and the British Pack, overall the packs are designed to be a basic but fun add on to FSX, enabling you to drop bombs and shoot missiles! Yes I did say shoot missiles! The US weapons pack has an extensive collection of weapons created in FSDS, a staggering 68 individual weapons with different variants too! A big thank you and most of the credits goes to Kotaro Akikawa, who uploaded his FSDS model source weapons pack at simviation.com. The British weapons pack is a collection of weapons, generously given from David Brice, made in GMAX and uses an attached effect!
This pack and contents should not harm either your flight simulator or computer, but I take no responsibility if either of which are harmed!

Before I go any further I shall explain what the US weapons pack can and cant do! All bombs, whether dumb or guided (With exceptions listed below), explode upon impact with the effect file included. However the missiles and glide bombs do no explode upon impact! Please take note of this, as they are classed under a different object to the bombs, which denies impact effects.
Cluster bombs use a different effect therefore they do not look like the cluster bomb explosions.
The Incendiary bombs use a fire explosion but look too small for a normal incendiary explosion.
Missiles + Glide Bombs, both Air to Ground/Air have forward motion, which may at some points in your flying may give adverse display of both position of the object but also forward motion. You may at times see the objects running along the surface of the ground/sea, also at various bank and pitch angles the objects may drop/release from strange points and also move forward at strange angles, this is something out of my control and is due to the flight simulator. Another point with the missiles is that they do not have rocket effects and smoke trail effects; this is due to them being exported using FSDS.
The British weapons pack is a bit more enhanced, with missiles having attached contrail effect to look like rocket trail but this only lasts for a short time.
Lastly the biggest limitation of Flight Simulator is that you can only have one object to drop at one time.
To install the weapons into FSX, you need to follow these instructions carefully!
1, extract the "Effects" folder to your main FSX folder, select over write, there should not be anything overwritten however you can extract to somewhere else and install manually.
2, Open the folder "US Weapons Pack" and extract the folder "SimObjects" to you main FSX folder, again there should not be anything overwritten, repeat actions for the folder "British Weapons Pack".
3, this is the hard part of the weapons installation! You need to create a saved flight with an aircraft that you wish to drop weapons from, when you have done this you will need to add two lines to the saved flight, these are located in the folder "My DocumentsFlight Simulator X Files", open the saved flight using notepad, the name should just be something like "flight", do not try to open any of the other files, such as the flight.wx, flight.fssave. You will need to add these two lines to the saved flight;
Now add the weapon of your choice (copy the weapons name and past over the *'s), from the list below and the number of available weapons to drop (any number you wish, write over the ^'s). Once you have done this you save the saved flight and exit notepad, now go load that flight up in FSX and go drop bombs or fire missiles using the key press "shift + D"
Please note! It is critically important that you use the names below exactly as they point to the individual objects!
