just curious....tail lighting on FFX's DC-10's?

Recommended Posts

if i remember correctly, in FS2002 FFX's DC-10's had tail lighting at night. yesterday while on a flight that went into evening i discovered that in FS9 it doesn't seem to work. at least on mine. once i landed and restarted the sim i still didn't have a tail light on any of the DC-10 models.no, its not THAT important.....but it does make for some cool screenshots! any insights are appreciated!chris

no joy. i tried ALL the settings in the hardware rendered lights area and still no tail lighting.i'm using FFX DC-10's that were originally put out for FS2002. could that be the problem? i noticed that on the horizontal stabilizer, i can see a light that is shining up onto the tail.....but the tail doesn't illuminate.this occurs for all series of their DC-10's. i fired up several different aircraft last night, including all other FFX types, and all had tail night lighting.can anyone tell me if they're getting tail lighting on the FS2002-original DC-10's?thxchris

The tail lighting on the original FFX DC-10's is an effect (in your effects folder) and not part of the _l texture (as it is in my repaints of the FFX DC-10).........so copy the effect from your FS2002 folder to your FS9 effect folder.regardsEdhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/33170.jpg
