Here's the setting I use for my Hawk panel which looks cool and is subtle at night:(Color)Day=255,255,255Night=20,20,20Luminous=170,170,110and one of the settings I use for my private DC-3 panels:(Color)Day=255,255,255Night=60,21,21Luminous=140,85,2Try those two for starters in one or other of your panels, and see what you think.Note that the brackets should be SQUARE around the word COLOR, but you can't type it here because it wouldn't show up.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo.jpg

Yes, that's better, isn't it, but it still isn't bringing up the individual gauge lights as in FS2002.I thought Chuck Dome's MAKEPINK gauge might be necessary, so I just copied it across, but that did nothing other than you show. So now we have to work out how to illuminate the gauges as in FS2002:http://www.swiremariners.com/tri800.jpgI'm sure there'll be plenty on this in the panels forum.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo.jpg

Fine, Ken, and thanks, but we don't have the answer yet to this poster. This is how my FS2002 Hawk panel looks at night in the default FS2004 situation:http://www.swiremariners.com/hawkpnl.jpgYet as we see from the poster's panel shots of default aircraft in FS2004, the light is either "on" all over the panel which is horrible or "off" with no gauge lighting. Funny that. And a pity, because the 2D panels in FS2004 are exceptional otherwise.I'm no panel guru ... maybe someone will answer all this for us in due course.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo.jpg

The panel lights info is in the Panel CFG ok..but haven't gotten it to work yet/at all, and in plane's CFG you can change the cabin light to become a red nav light. This is sounding like it needs a fix from MS?

ohrighti think VC gauge lights depend on the flood lamps for cockpitdownload my panel lights modifyier for the lear45 to see what editing i did to an fx file's RGB values.Try a similar approach.You have to save the file again as an fx file or it will resort to the test format and this prob do no workfile is == learvc-6.zipallen lavigne
