Lear 35 Landing Light Overpowered

Recommended Posts

Is this the normal landing light and taxi light for the lear?  The white really overpowers the surface and it's difficult to see where I'm at.  Is there some other setting I should use?

P3D 4.4

Yes, that's the way it is at least until the next Lear update.  You might try just using the taxi lights which helps a little.  P3Dv4.4 seems to present some new challenges when it comes to lights.

+1 vote for fixing the landing and taxi lights. Really difficult to see taxi lanes and markings on the ground at night, on some payware airports even with only the taxi lights on.

I tried to tinker around with the lighting based on what I found in the aircraft.cfg, but found that it has no effect. The lighting seems to be compiled into the model.

Hey there,

so it's been a few updates, but, at least for FSX, it seems the lights are still rather bright. Or have I missed something?

Please post some current images of the lights you think are too bright for Mark at FSW to evaluate.

Thanks,

Al

Hello,

it still looks precisely as in the picture from the first post, no change at all.

Kind regards

OK thanks, I'll make Mark aware of the info.

This is what I see in P3D4.5 HF3 using the latest version of the Lear35A.

And here is what I see in P3Dv5 HF2:

Mark wanted me to ask what sim you are using, are you using the latest Lear35 version 4.3c, and are you using any Shader addons that might be contributing to the problem?

Oh I'm on FSX I'm ashamed to say, invested to much time and energy to swap before FS2020 release... Maybe FSX wasn't updated? I guess the fancy lights draw more VAS anyhow

Don't know what you mean by that -- FSX hasn't been updated for many years as far as I know unless you are using the Steam version.  You didn't say what version of the Lear you are using, and if you are using any Shader addons?

The reflection of the beam on scenery objects is bright most noticing this in the day-time. I will take a screenshot of it. I just purchased the Immersion package and no change on the reflection on objects. I have Prepar3D 4.5 HF3

That model you have is from our 32 bit model for FSX and P3D up to V4.3 

You need to install V4.4 or higher.
