Strobes/Beacons - again

Recommended Posts

Followed the earlier discussion.  As far as I can tell, the PA42 has no beacons.  Am running P3Dv4.5.  There are the faintest little blips from strobes on the wing tanks in daylight.  At night, there is no trace of any strobes (or beacons).  Bit dangerous way to fly.  Is this something particular to P3D4.5?  Can't tweak anything as the lights are all embedded in the models.  The Turbo Commander on the other hand has wonderful strobes.

It seems when P3D gets a little overloaded, the first thing to go is effects.  Strobe effects, beacon effects, touchdown effects, etc.  I rarely get entirely through a flight without the effects quitting somewhere along the way.  You can turn up the effects detail in display settings to get them to last longer but at an FPS cost.   

Anyway, It's a P3D thing and happens with all relatively large and complex add-on aircraft.
