Hello Doug,

 

If my memory serves me well, this happens when the original FS landing light has been replaced by a different one (probably from an addon). Years ago I've read this at an FS9 forum, but I assume that it's the same in FSX. Check the file 'fx_landing' in the Effects folder. The date should be May 12, 2006. If the file is newer, than that's the culprit. It shouldn't be very difficult to find the original file on the FSX CD's.

 

Regards,

René

 

Edit: After digging a bit further in my memory: the file that could have been replaced may also be the 'halo' file (in the textures folder).

If it is the "Lotus style" lights used on most newer aircraft such as VRS, IRIS F-15E, and the PMDG NGX. Also make sure you have "Advanced animations" checked in the "Graphic settings" of FSX. They use bone animations and will not show up if that isn't checked.

We take the Metal and bring it to Mesh.

Cranking your VC eyepoint up will help you to see over the nose if the nose obscures the lit-up ground..
