L-1011 in FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I was trying to find the answer to the following on flightsimulatorguide.com but rather annoyingly it is not available... :( I am trying to move the Aerosim L-1011 (including the freighters) into FSX Gold and have run into one or two problems:1) Lights - the coordinates for all the lights seem to have been slightly altered in FSX, as well as the delay timings for the strobes and beacon lights. The strobe lights are massively out of place and both these and the beacon lights flash far too fast. Does anyone have the correct settings for these in FSX?2) Default effects - Wing-tip trails, water spray effects also seem out of place. Can anyone tell me how to fix these?3) 'Tape' engine gauges - In the respective models the N1 tape gauge has its surround/background missing in the Virtual Cockpit. Is this something I have to live with or is there a solution somewhere. 4) Are there any other issues I should be made aware of? It would be great if I could have a little bit of knowledge, from anyone, on any of the above.Thanks so much in advance,Michael.

The problem of the the tape guage in the vc is down to the model so i don't think it can be fixed.The vortex trails and other effects i have not tried, but the positioning of these could also be in the modelling, But i might be wrong :smile: .
