King Air panel lighting

Recommended Posts

I wanted to see if there was anyone who knew how, and was willing to make a dimmer panel texture for the King Air 200. Carenado makes great aircraft, but I find that the panel lighting at night is way to bright. I am a pilot and when I fly I keep the panel as dim as possible so I can see outside better. The one aircraft that Carenado got right with the panel lighting was the T182. Any help in this area would be much appreciated. Thank you.

That is fantastic! Thank you so much for making a dimmer texture. You just saved this airplane for me. Now I will be able to do some fun dawn, dusk and night flights. I really appreciate the help!

Just wondering if this fix has been posted. The dome light is killing the night immersion. If you could fix it, I'd be most grateful.

Hello everybody,

I am very sorry guys, I was quite a bit away from my pc and simulator the last week due to some family works I was on for my kids for Xmas so please excuse the late reply.

I also wanted to talk to Carenado before sharing this modified texture file, just wanted to be 100% conform to their copyrights.

 

So this is a modified, pretty much dimmed down texture file which then applies to Carenado´s copyright rules! It replaces only the front panel texture.

Credits go to Carenado and are explicit in the zip file as a txt-file.

 

You can get the modified texture here: LINK

 

The modified texture will look like this:

 

Panel1.jpg

Panel2.jpg

 

Place the file into the B200/texture.common folder and please be sure to backup the original file!

 

Then open the aircraft.cfg, search for the [LIGHTS] section and replace these lines (do a copy of the original aircraft.cfg !!!) , this will also disable the VC-cockpit-dome light:

 

[LIGHTS]

//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing

//light.0 = 4, 4.00, 0.00, 1.00, fx_vclightcarcnB

light.0 = 10, 4.40, 0.00, 2.90, fx_vclightcarcnbB

light.1 = 10, -1.80, 0.00, 4.00, fx_vclightcarcn2B

light.2 = 10, -5.50, 0.00, 3.85, fx_vclightcarcn2B

 

If you allready added my "nav-lights / Ldg-lights" - tweak you surely have to add them to these lines with following numbers for the lights!

 

There is no dislike to the original textures, it was just the idea of adapting and modifying to personal needs! ^_^

Cheers and thanks Carenado for giving so much joy with this beauty!

Just a small real-life picture. The quality is not good, I am sorry.

 

For my taste it looks quite close :lol:
