ATTENTION AT ALL DOWNLOADS from Slim Lights Base v3.1 in the forum an UPDATE available! 

I've made a mistake since v2. The blue and white lights did not go. The texture was corrupt and I still had the old one and did not notice it

Hello Rainer

For those of us with the full ORBX packages including lights, do we need to uninstall the Orbx Lights in the FTX Centre?, if so will that be enough for your packages to work in P3Dv4? Grateful for some feedback.

 

Thanks

No, the Slim Lights are completely independent of the OrBX Lights.But you have to keep in mind that two light systems generate more load and then double lights are present, even if you do not see immediately.My lights go far beyond the LOD.

But you have different configuration options.

Since OrbX is present in the cities, you can switch off my residetial lights in the configurator.Likewise, you can do in FTX Central shutdowns and use my lights. It is flexible.


Finally, I also build the Global Switch which allows one click to turn off all lights of the FS and only use Slim Lights.
All possibilities are open.

 

You have to find out what's best for you.The global lights are dependent of the autogen. While you often do not see popping during the day (bug in P3D), you can clearly see when autogen lights are popping. For me, the best is without these lights, see link above in Sim-wings Madrid

Does this "fix" the issue that Orbx and Black Marble/Night Environment have where they have lights on all major roads/highways that are out away from cities?  The "spider web" effect that we see in these projects.  In the U.S. at least, when you get away from cities, the highways inter-connecting the cities are not all lit up as far as the eye can see.  Totally non-realistic.  That's my only complaint against these night lighting products.

That's how it looks.
If you do not want anything outside you can disable everything except residential.
My lights, however, look more subtle than the others, so not so obtrusive and big.
In the picture, all other lights of the sim are disabled.

Any special adjustments as far as  Ultimate Terrain lighting is concerned?    I'm interested in what I see here, the screenshots look super.   But I'm wondering how the product interacts with UTX or what I may have to shut off or adjust to make UTX work with your lighting......thanks

Not tested with UTX but in UTX you can switch off or configure the lights in the lightswitcher. I think it works.

My lights are complete OSM based and have nothing to do with others in the sim
