Dimming or Turning off Cabin Lights

Recommended Posts

Guest Spader

With both the 747 and 737NG aircraft, I have noticed that at night, the cabin lights are amazingly bright. This is totally unrealistic, as in the middle of the night, airlines are not going to have their lights on as high as they go.How do I dim the lights?

Jackson, (and others who've posted about similar "issues")In the nicest possible way to say it - we created a flight simulator, not a passenger simulator. The cabin lighting is what it is. We already have to hack around FS's limited lighting system just to get the cockpit looking right and the cabin lighting is somewhere south of Antarctica on the list of major priorities when you're developing a cockpit simulation as complex as ours are. There are other products out there that choose to focus on cabin eye candy with all manner of things like personal TV's and stewardesses but we feel the important part of the aircraft for the vast majority of our customers is that area up in the nose where the yoke and throttles are.

Thank you.I understand. Now that you've put it that way, I can see where you are coming from on this, and I would mutch rather have an aircraft as close to the real one in respect to how it is flown than ow it is ridden in.And also, major things that would help many beginner pilots are step-by-step tutorials on how to do certain things. The manuals tell the controls, knobs, switches, everything else, and what they do, but they do not tell us how to do certain things. For example, I still don't know how to start the engines manually in the 747 (I just hit Ctrl-E; it works just the same). The manuals tell me about the fuel cutoff switches, the APU start switches, the fuel flow switches, the engine start switches, and all of the other buttons and switches used to start the engines, but the manuals do not tell me how these switches interact with each other to start the engines.

JAckson,In addition to the tutorials PMDG has provided,If you search this thread using the search function and the key word "tutorial", you would find threads/links to many many tutorials for the PMDG 747. IMO, The PMDG 737 and the 747 have the most collection of turotials at various granularity of details. On account of that... I only know how to operate the PMDG 747 from beginning to end, including all the systems. Some of the 737 FMC tutorial would also work for the 747. MannyHere is a quick and easy way to get up.http://smithplanet.com/fs2004/pmdg/index.htmBrett's FMC tutorial is amazing. Even though its for the 737, 99% it works for the 747 as well.http://www.brettdonahue.com/index.php?opti...&id=20&Itemid=9Others.http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=search
