still no lights in VC

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded the new version and I still cannot get the VC to light up. The 2d panel lights up fine at night, but the VC is still dark. Only the FMC actually glows green when I adjust the lighting. Help!

I second this issue. No internal lights in the VC and no landing lights/taxi lights visible out front. Also no beacons/strobes/nav lights showing on the external model.Am I missing a file(s)?The above notwithstanding, let me say that the aircraft is a joy to fly and is automatically in my top 3 based on just one 2.5 hour flight.Well done PSS, naysayers and the rest aside, this aircraft has firmly and deservingly pushed you back into the Flightsim limelight, long may you stay there!Cheers

Not sure if this applies here, but I can replicate this time and again by not loading the default Cessna flight properly.

Hi Alex,Did you have the previous release candidate installed? I ask because I had exactly this problem in the RC. I uninstalled the RC and installed the new one and my lighting is fine now.So I suggest you uninstall you new version and this time go into the FS folder and delete any left overs. When I uninstalled my RC there where still one or two folders left and I am sure that these may cause problems. So your new product may still be using old files from the RC, this is what it sounds like. So once you have uninstalled it make sure that no files are remaining in the FS folder (Aircraft and PSS sub directory) and then try installing it again. Should work.Hope you get it fixed!Joseph

I never have to load the cessna, I have a saved cold and dark flight using the default cessna, but in the main menu I change to whatever airplane I want to fly in then select fly now. Never had to load up the cessna first and then switch aircraft, why would I have to do that now?

Hey man I didn't build the airplane, I'm just relaying what works and does not work for me.I can create the exact issues you mention by not doing it as prescribed.

That's great, but what about sunset? Having green lines instead of white ones on the main panel actually makes it harder to read (on the VC), and since the VC reaction to sunsets isn't immediate, this is what happens. Try finding a switch in that overhead.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/132462.jpgPLEASE add a floodlight, folks. Every other respectable group has a flood/dome light on their VC's, I don't see why PSS should be the exception to the rule. I love this plane, but little things like this and having no reflective windows make this VC come short in comparison to competing products. I don't think getting some light in the VC is asking too much.Daniel P.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpgMember of SJU Photography.

Seconded!My inaugural was from Bangkok to Hong Kong on dusk and it was a mission to see anything on the overhead.

Alex,Before you reinstall, please try to load your default Cessna as suggested before, that will save your day. This comes from your default Cessna situation (battery and avionics)and for that PSS does not differ from the other sophisticated addons existing, you must load your default MSFS plane first. Alternatively if you have hardware with commands for battery and avionics, then you have to make sure that your battery is active on your hardware (switched on).Happy landings.

I've never had to load the cessna first before flying any airplane and don't see why I would suddenly have to now?

Alot of aircraft out there including payware suggest loading the cessna first . Especially to get the aircraft into certain procedures or Cold and Dark situations. Some would even say start with your default flight which should be in KSEA with the cessna on the active. As PSS has stated before alot of aircraft problems are associated with having the default flight messed up or not having one all together. It doesn't have any effect on FPS or Ram to start with the Cessna and then switch to your current A/C

I am confused, I have my default flight saved as the default cessna... but I never have had to actually load that cessna in the game then go to the menu in-game to change aircraft like some have suggested.
