Lights in P3D

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I sometimes come across what can only be described as 'blobby' lights in P3D - over exposed halo.  Are there any light replacement packages that anyone can recommend for P3D?  I remember using UTX light replacement in FSX (I think it was UTX) and they were pretty good - but that was a while ago.

 

Cheers

Hi Erich

 

I add these 4 lines to the Prepar3D cfg file

 

RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=0.4 //scales edge,center,end,touchdown,runways
RUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=0.4 //scales VASI lights)
RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=0.4 //scales approach light bars
RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=0.4 //scales RAILs and ODALs)

 

They need to be pasted after the bottom of entry of  [Display]

 

Make sure you save the changes when you exit the cfg file

Those lights you are familiar with from fsx days is going to be made for P3D for a small fee I think or free if you own UTX V2 cant remember which but did read this at simforums by developer

Nope, that has nothing to do with HDR. Those entries simply make the ground lights at the airport smaller, hence less bright.
