PMDG 737 FS9 (Legacy) Light Issue

Recommended Posts

On the 737-700 (Winglet) the white light on the trailing edge of the wing (I can't remember the name) seems to be floating in mid-air. Does anyone know why this is and/or what can be done to fix it? Thanks in advance.

I tried messing around with it, but wasn't sure exactly what to do with it and didn't want to mess anything up and not be able to fix it.

First make a backup of the original aircraft.cfg (most easy to copy and paste in the same location. You will then have a file "aircraft.cfg" and another one "copy of aircraft.cfg").

Then open the file "aircraft.cfg" with an editor like Wordpad.
Find the secion [lights] and within something like

light.2=3, -20.19, -56.46, 3.84, fx_navwhi

The three values
-20.19
-56.46
3.84
are the coordinates of the light. When you change these values you will see the light change its location. I believe the values are feet.
Play around and see what happens.
BTW, fx_navwhi stands for Navigation Light White, so the two lines


light.2=3, -20.19, -56.46, 3.84, fx_navwhi
light.3=3, -20.19, 56.46, 3.84, fx_navwhi

are probably the ones you want to deal with.
Try first to change 3.84 to, say, 3.24.

Beware: the values given here are examples only. Yours may differ.
