FTX Vector/Openlc question

Recommended Posts

Hi all-

In Vector or OpenLc, what determines how many lights you see and how far out they can be seen? I don't see an adjustment available in either.

I see the Lights Configurator but that's not what I'm looking for; it's a separate app.

Thanks,

Mark

There are not any settings to adjust the lighting distance in either (that I am aware of).  My OpenLC/Vector lights go out nearly to the horizon though in P3Dv4.

Seems strange that this is the case. I would think that, depending on CPU/card differences, there would be an adjustment somewhere to manage this. But then again...

So lights are connected to autogen?

Oh dear... :cool: Lights are autogen, so to speak

The FTX Global 3D lights are in fact connected to autogen (the density of them also depends on your vegetation setting). The OpenLC/Vector road lights are not. If I set my autogen draw distance to low, I can still see road lights out to horizon...but the FTXG 3d lights will have a much lower viewing distance.

Well, that explains that I guess. I wonder why there's no documentation about this that comes with the app(s).
