Smaller lights, less bright ?

Recommended Posts

Guest Airbuzz

Is it possible to "get" smaller lights that are less bright ?From flight-videos I saw that in reality they are much darker, smaller so you can actually see the runway !

I assume you are talking about the landing and taxi lights on the aircraft themselves, if so try:xenon1.zip or spotligh.zipThey are both available at Flightsim.com

Word Not Allowed,Could you show the view on the approach, say from altitude of 200-400 ft? I wonder how your lights look. I have been looking for smaller lights myself.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2, Omega 2.7.90 (4xAA 16xAF)

Ok, now I recognize them - they are part of Chris Arrington's airport upgrade package. Available here in Avsim's library in a few versions.I have to say I ultimately uninstalled this package. Those lights look too fuzzy to me. I am still looking for the ideal runway lights in FS - The original Fly!2k simulator had the best runway/taxiway lights to date - small, crisp and sharp. I wish I could show you the pic.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2, Omega 2.7.90 (4xAA 16xAF)

Are those supposed to be HIRL or MIRL? They look too bright to be MIRL and I have yet to see HIRL IRL. The PAPI whites also look more amber than they should in my opinion.----------------------------------------------------------------John S.
