Project Airbus Wing Lights

Recommended Posts

Hello again,

 

In the file library there's an explanation how to add Wing Lights to the PA Airbus A320 by adding the following lines:

 

light.1=8,   25.31,  6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih
light.2=8,  25.31,  -6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih
light.3=8,  25.31,  6.8,  1.70, B738wing
light.4=8,  25.31,  -6.8,  1.70, B738wing

I think there are two lines for the Wing Light and the other two lines describe the light effect on the engines...

 

Can you help me to find out where I can find those coordinates and re-edit it for an A319 and A321 as well?

 

Thanks in advance.

The model has a 'center' position at coordinates 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 - lights and such are positioned forward, aft, left, right, above and below this position. Forward, left and up are positive, aft, right and below are negative values.

In your example 25.31 looks like forward distance along the fuselage, 6.67 and -6.67 are left and right (or right and left - not totally sure), and 1.70 is height.

 

I'd guess for the longer 319 and shorter 321 you would need to experiment mostly with '25.31'. Just backup you aircraft.cfgs and go crazy - that's how you learn this stuff.

Close, no cigar.

 

Positive numbers are forward, right and up.

Here is an example for you to work from. This is from a PA Airbus 320 version 2.1 aircraft.cfg file [lights] section.

 

[lights]

light.0=4,  44.41,  0.00,  3.50, fx_vclighth

light.1=5,  25.31,  6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.2=5,  25.31,  -6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.3=8, -22.50, 19, 0, AS_Rainwash.fx

light.4=8, -22.50, -19, 0, AS_Rainwash.fx

light.5=10, 35.84, 0.0, -11.9619, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.6=9,  -6.660, -12.458, -12.22, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.7=9,  -6.660,  12.458, -12.22, Gear_Rainwash.fx

 

light.1 and light.2 are the ones you would be interested in. But, . . . . . basically you already have that. so the only thing you need to do is make sure you have the two effects that are used. and add the lines you posted as an example;

 

light.1=8,   25.31,  6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih

light.2=8,  25.31,  -6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih

light.3=8,  25.31,  6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.4=8,  25.31,  -6.8,  1.70, B738wing

 

To your [lights] section. Making sure to renumber renumber them correctly. The light(period) numbers have to begin with zero and continue in numerical order and no greater than light.18=. The order of the effects in not important. So in the example I gave you above if I wish to add the effect that is missing (as per your example ) it might look something like this.

 

[lights]

light.0=4,  44.41,  0.00,  3.50, fx_vclighth

light.1=5,  25.31,  6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.2=5,  25.31,  -6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.3=8, -22.50, 19, 0, AS_Rainwash.fx

light.4=8, -22.50, -19, 0, AS_Rainwash.fx

light.5=10, 35.84, 0.0, -11.9619, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.6=9,  -6.660, -12.458, -12.22, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.7=9,  -6.660,  12.458, -12.22, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.8=8,   25.31,  6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih

light.9=8,  25.31,  -6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih

 

notice light.8 and light.9 added at the end or I could have done it like this;

 

[lights]

light.0=4,  44.41,  0.00,  3.50, fx_vclighth

light.1=8,   25.31,  6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih

light.2=8,  25.31,  -6.67,  1.70, fx_navwhih

light.3=8,  25.31,  6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.4=8,  25.31,  -6.8,  1.70, B738wing

light.5=8, -22.50, 19, 0, AS_Rainwash.fx

light.6=8, -22.50, -19, 0, AS_Rainwash.fx

light.7=10, 35.84, 0.0, -11.9619, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.8=9,  -6.660, -12.458, -12.22, Gear_Rainwash.fx

light.9=9,  -6.660,  12.458, -12.22, Gear_Rainwash.fx

 

 

I hope this helps you out.
