FTX Global Lights Configurator

Recommended Posts

I use orbx global base/vector/LC etc.  Never installed the night lights package.  Now that I use TS I see that it came with suggested settings for this program.  Do you guys use it?  Recommend?

Yes, I have had it for some while.

It is one of those programs that you set and forget.

I couldn't tell you what my light looked like before Orbx. I am quite satisfied.

thanks for the reply.  Strange how little feedback I see around here on the program.

You get ORBX Night Lights with Blobal Base. Whether you wish to modify those with configuration panel is up to your preference. If I remember correctly, you are using R&D preset. I use the same one with few personal tweaks, but I also follow their lights configuration recommendation. I have used it for a while, so once when I forgot to reconfigure them after a clean slate, I noticed the difference. When stock, light sources were a bit too big and glaring for my preference. That is probably just because I have grown accustomed to R&D settings, but they look great non the less.

I suggest you try R&D's recommended settings. If they don't suit your needs then you can always revert to stock or customize your own.

As others have said, there's not much to talk about. It is under "Configure" on the Global Base tab of Orbx Central. I ran it right after I first installed GB. I selected the "very small' option, and then picked a random color for each section and saved those settings as a profile. The last time I even looked at it was right after I installed P3Dv45 HF2, and that was just to make sure that things hadn't changed.

If you have LC installed, I think there is an option that needs to be checked somewhere to prevent a situation where you have double lights. I don't remember the specifics. I think that also applies to some regions.
