dimmed night lighting mod

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I recently uploaded the Skymaster repaint 'Electric Blue'.

I have flown GA planes at night before in the realworld, and I always felt that the Skymaster's nightlight was pretty but it was too bright for realistic night flying for me. For Electric Blue, I dimmed the night lighting for what I felt would be an appropriate level for night flying.

After

If you would like to use this night lighting on all your Skymaster paints, move cessna337_(1-3)_night.dds and both gauges_337 night dds files from texture.n37tj to texture.common. Backup/remove the equivilent bmp textures already in the texture.common folder. Likewise if you wish Electric Blue to have the default night lighting, simply remove those dds files from the texture.n37tj folder.

 

Also for this paint scheme, I added an 'ID placard'...just a peice of tape with the registration written on it.
