What are these knobs for?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Can someone please tell me what these knobs are for?

 

Cause they dont seem te have much function. With the NGX a similar knob lighted the holder for the charts near the window, that is not the case here.

 

Thank you in advance

They control lights for the work table and for the chart clipboard (located just to the left of the tiller in your picture).  They are not functional in the PMDG model.

well did you put a chart or other document on the worktable that you need to see? not trying to be a smart$#@ but the lighting effects that are put into the panel are amazing , like dawn/ dusk/ sunset /sunrise lighting situations are absolutely incredible with shading on all the knobs and their reflections , it really seems that PMDG may have really stretched the limits of the sim here, so maybe some decisions were made to get all out for needed functions? Plus this plane will fly through all these phases in 1 flight so that may also have been a criteria?

I have noticed the reflections. At first I thought it was some sort of glitch because I didn't think they would have modeled it in that much detail, but sure enough they did.
