This could be different from spotlights as V4 does utilize new lighting technologies and this could be an example of that.

the TFDi 717 has great night lighting now. Far cry from what it used to have and actually usable at night. I wouldn't mind this on other planes :D

It just went from having some of the worst night lighting due to its night textures, to having the best. These guys are magicians.

As long as it performs better than V4's exceptionally bad implementation of dynamic lighting, I'll be interested.

If LM can enable shadows/opacity and adjustable intensity to their dynamic lights in a next update we wouldn't require the above additional modules.

Interesting, but the major lighting issue with the 717 is the integrated back-lighting.  I can see this new lighting being good for a dome/flood light but you don't fly around at night with all of those lights on.  Not quite sure how this will help the overhead panel, etc...at least on the 717.

In the linked blog post it says:

RealLight must be implemented by the developers at a lower level of the project – the result, of course, being an integrated experience

We intend to use this technology in other products and are looking in to licensing or sharing the technology with other developers.

So it is apparently a lighting technology for PD3 v4 that aircraft developers can integrate in their aircraft, depending on how TFDi Design decides to license or share the technology. So it reads to me as something that is initially meant for developers - not for consumers.

I installed v4 p3d just to get it this weekend and wow what an immersive experience the lights add vc-wise!   The 717 is very good now and what a great sim v4 is; will be flying the 717 alot as it is one of my favorite all time planes.  Worth it as lights have never been this good in the fsx-psd platform; I may try and fly at night lol.

The TFDi B717 doesn't get enough love around here, but a fleet consisting  of the B717, the NGX, the Triple 7 and the Aerosoft CRJ provides a variety of experiences, all of which are top notch.

Thinking of buying their 717. Almost pulled trigger on CRJ but didn't for personal reasons. Is the 717 got most of the bugs worked out?

For some reason, I thought this ac was in a beta release, or something to that effect so I stopped looking at it. Is it V4 compatible?

Still some issues here and there, however, they seem pretty active in getting everything resolved and have been releasing quite a few updates recently. I will say RealLight does look amazing on my system, definitely a game changer from the previous lighting system they used.

too many apps that do the same thing, this reminds me of FSLabs Spotlight.

The P3d3 version of the B717 is not a beta release. The P3d4 version is an opt-in beta, but it's very stable, IMO.

Add the Majestic Q400 for turbo prop operations and you have everything you need in commercial flights!

Me too; the lights are a game changer for me as I have not seen that kind of lighting in the fsx/p3d platform...
