Please explain different landing lights

Recommended Posts

I think I have noticed 5 different situations in FS2002 regarding landing lights.1 Some aircraft landing lights work perfectly -- the landing lights illuminate the runway,visible both from within the cockpit and externally.2 Some aircraft landing lights work -- but are only visible externally3 Some have landing lights which are merely small lights in the correct place on the aircraft model that do not illuminate the runway at all.4 Some aircraft have been "fixed" so that aircraft landing lights work "in FS2002 fashion" (Don't really know what that means ) 5 Some aircraft have a [LIGHTS] section in the aircraft.cfg file and some don't .. It seems to me that the aircraft with perfect working lights do NOT have a [LIGHTS] section.Thanks Barry

Currently, only G-MAX designed aircraft have landing lights that illuminate the runway in the forward view through the 2D cockpit. FSDS's new version to be released shortly supposed to add that capability which the current version does not facilitate. So far, the postings that stated this appear to be true according to my experience with aircraft designed under both environments.

Yes -- i koow about this aituation regarding the Gmax models being the only ones to have landing lights visible from the cockpit -- but what about all the other situations. How do they fit into the general scheme of things?.
