  • AI Strobes Lights with dynamic lights reflections that illuminates the tarmac and plane structures.

Just tried it. Very nice work. Loving the reflection on the fuselage from the NAV and strobe lights. The range is also good and the size of the lights is much more realistic. Thanks for this great contribution.

Hi Simbol,

I have followed the development of your program on the forum and I am impressed with the positive comments. I just downloaded from your website, I note your installer is fixed on C:Program files\etc any chance we can be given the choice to install elsewhere like on my P3D drive?

Cheers

Simbol, just wanted to express my gratitude for the great work you've done with this new ai light effects, they look very "pro" (real).

Evereyone that wants a more immersive and realistic sim should install Simbol's app.

Thanks again for what you gifted to the fs community.

Great week

Sergio

Hi Uteman,

The next revised version will allow you to do so, I had to use my current installation tools and due to technical difficulties I had to leave it fixed until I can purchase a more profesional installation tool.

If you are really bothered contact me privately and I can send you instructions to move the add-on to another folder, alternatively you can wait a couple of weeks and use the updated version

Enjoy the freeware, many thanks for you kind words and support with my new product lines.

Best Wishes,

Simbol

Hi Sergio,

This is a freeware, there is a Profesional Edition currently under development and is not even near of what you are experiencing, stay tune.

Thanks for your kind words and support.

Best Regards,
Simbol

This pack is outstanding, thank you. My only gripe is the strobe lights combined with flightbeam's night time preset is blinding in the cockpit (f22).

Contact me private for support, I have users using My traffic.

I suspect you have a conflict with another add-on or configuration with your Sim.

The new lights are working partly when using MT6. On the ground, and if you are not too far away from the aircraft, you can see at least the great strobe lights with reflections.
Moreover you can take a look at the MT aircarft config editor, located in the MT aircraft directory. There you will find an option "Enable Effect Light". Make sure that this option is turned on.

Jodle,

I own UTL and used it during the creation of the lights, you must have a conflict in your sim with something else.

Ok, just as a side note: for example the Lionheart Trinidad seems to use the same strobe light effects. At least since installation of this nice little tool, I can not use my strobe lights in the Lionheart Trinidad anymore, because they illuminate the full VC even in bright sunlight with an annoying blinking white light. I know, this is most probably due to the fact that the wing is not considered be solid material for this plane, but still... Same effect is visible in the outside view, now the strobe light illuminates the full fuselage with its blinking white light, visible even in bright sunshine... Anything I can do to overcome such an effect?

You can edit your trinidad aircraft.cfg file to use a different strobe effect.

Your original strobe files were left untouched on your default effects folder, make a copy of fx_strobe.fx, rename the copy to fx_strobe_trinidad.fx and open your aircraft.cfg file, find any reference to the default strobe and replace it for fx_strobe_trinidad

That will resolve your particular problem.

If you want me to do the changes for you email me at support@fsreborn.com.

Well, what an easy yet wonderful simple solution, thanks for pointing this out. Could have thought about that myself, haha.

One question related to the idea with renaming the fx files: as I have plenty of AI aircraft moved over from my FSX first to P3Dv3 and now to P3Dv4, many of them still have their shockwave entries in their aircraft.cfg under the lights section. In P3Dv3, I did something similar as you suggested, I simply copied all fx files and renamed them according to the shockwave nomenclature (e.g. fx_navred was renamed to fx_shockwave_navred). I now did the same using your modified files, I did a copy on my desktop, renamed it again to e.g. fx_shockwave_navred and moved those renamed files back in the same addon folder containing your modified fx files. Does this work? Will P3Dv4 also consider those files or do I have to adapt another file?

You are welcome to experiment, just take a backup of your environment first.

Simbol,

Just wanted to shout out a huge THANKS! for doing this fine work.  Now my AI lights sometimes look even better than my payware planes.  Really exceptional work.
