Can't see the runway lights in FFX's Boeings

Recommended Posts

Guest Terblanche

If you look at the three pictures attached ... you will see that the runway lights are hardly visible with any panel of the B737's from FFX - the moment you go to any other aircraft you could clearly see the runway lights!I've tried everything possible to see the runway lights better but you only see them from

The brightness of the lights is directly related to the height of the outside view. If the panel has a narrow outside window, the lights will be dimmer.Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Hi jchpa32,If you are referring to the top pic of my 737-200 panel, then it was I who created that particular panel and there are conditions to be met before I can email it to anyone...Please see my "737-200 panel" thread to read the conditions. My thread is in the MS Flight Simulator General Discussion Forum and you can either do a search or browse the topics. I believe it's on page 6 or 7 by now.If you are referring to the second pic, then thats Arianes original 737-300 payware panel available from their site.Regards,Van LatendresseYeoDesigns/AFG Group

Terblanche:To elaborate on Tom Gibson's comment, open the panel.cfg file with NOTEPAD and try editing the DEFAULT VIEWS section, usually found as the last entry in the file, to something like this:{Default View}X=0Y=0SIZE_X=8191SIZE_Y=4800Some people complain how this causes a distortion in perspective, or some darned thing. At any rate, I find the incresed visibility of taxiway and runway lighting to far offset any such perceived distortion. Try it. If you don't like it, write the original numbers down and change them back. Pretty simple.Good Luck, http://www.bwiairport.com/images/carrier_logos/co.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZBaltimore, MD
