Hmm, how come I do not have this int1_night texture installed.. only int2_night..

 

I guess because I had new carpets installed, and the crew took out some of the lighting.. :wink:

Not sure, but I have it now... looks nicer on the overhead panel, still a bit dim on the main instruments.. May still need a flashlight  :wink:

Actually, just found the Panel Lights switch which pretty much fixes the panel lighting (except for the autopilot which should be lit up).. but this switch itself is close to unfindable at night, hence the flashlight..

Is there a panel flood? I've only found the gauge lights.

Bert, I called the guys who replaced the carpets. They told me that they hadn't touched anything else  :dance:  :smile:

Wish there was more contrast on the overhead panel, hard to see the panel lights and the trim wheel....ugh!

FWIW - I also didn't have an existing file by that name (int1_night).

 

Someone mentioned a newer d/l file.  Carenado's website still shows the same filename that I downloaded the day it came out, but if there is some newer version of the d/l file, I'd like to get it.

 

Cheers

Jeff

Way up on the overhead panel..

 

 

Carenado doesnt rename the file as far as I know - it will be the same name as your original file but file size will be different in this case file size is the same - so not sure if its in-fact different

 

Now there may not be that file in FSX users folder as I am on P3D - You guys not finding this file on FSX by any chance ?

Thanks Richard.

 

I'm doing a complete cockpit/cabin cleanup and now added your modified lights to the overhear front panel.

The file is there in both P3D and FSX.

 

For those guys who can't fined the files, the file names is AERO_int1_night.dds, not nt1_night.dds

 

Cheers.

Thanks Ramon didnt spend much time on it but for now I think it works - one thing I have noticed is the night textures are very pixelated - front view and panning left or right in the vc - you seeing this

Richard, I downloaded and installed into my FSX your lighting file.  It's outstanding!  Much better than the original.

Thanks for your outstanding talent.  I wouldn't even know where to begin.  Kudos to you man!
