Looking for a landing light that does this?

Recommended Posts

Or should I say doesn't do this? I hate the way the landing lights have such a hard edge to them. Especially when coming into land and the visibility is low they project the bright v shape light that has no transparency. Is this a limitation in FS9 or hardware DX9 based limitation. Unfortunatley I don't have a screen shot to show what I am experiencing, however some of you may know mhat I mean. It is also noticable when approaching an airport at night and I can see the v shape lights from the AI that are taxing or just landed, they stick out like a sore thumb. I am interested to know of any tweeks or light replacements I cant try or buy to fix this. Appreciate the feed back.Regards,Sean Campbell

There's a nice landing light texture from the Avsim lib by Nick Needham (Nicks_lightfix_v2). I replaced the landing light file (spotlight.bmp) and the result is excellent.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/181838.jpgLater,PatAMD Opteron DC 185 @ 3GHz, Zalman7700Cu cooler, Corsair XMS 2GB DDR, 7800GS-OC, Asus A8V MoBo, RaptorHDD, TrackIR4, CH FSYoke+TQ+peds, Eclipse RED KB, WinXP-sp2

Hi Pat,Thanks for the heads up in regards to Nick Needham's files here at AVSIM. They look great, much better than what I was using.

Pat, I am using the same lights by Nick. Mine looks like that also, when it clear. Through in some fog or hazy conditions with 1/4 or 1/2 mile visibility and it looks like my screen shot. Does yours look like mine when the visibility is cut down? It's like the cloud or foq layer doesn't really want to blend with the landing lights. Kind of how fog looks around mountains, it's just a hard edge. Maybe it's a hardware or software limitation. Looking forward to more input on this. Sean
