Please Help turn overhead cockpit light off

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I love this bird. My only complaint is at night I cant get ALL the panel gauges to illuminate without having the overhead whole cabin light on!  Aaarghh! Hey it's great for reading charts etc. but really distracts from night flying and especially approaches. (I'm using FSX)

Any panel / lighting geniuses her have a work around. Thanks to Bert and a few others here I've had some success modifying a few windows and VCpanels but I haven't solved this one..

Thanks in advance

If my memory serves me well, I have read past posts regarding similar lighting issues. I believe Carenado's panel and cabin lighting is coded into the aircraft "model" itself. For that reason there is nothing you can do to change the cockpit\cabin lighting. This has been a complaint of many other simmers like yourself. Possibly, the only thing you might be able to do is to re-work the lighting texture(s) if you have that ability and texture editing programs.. If you receive no other timely responses to your question, I suggest you "PM" Bert Pieke regarding this. He normally is really good in responding and knowledgeable as well.

Yes. Bert has been invaluable in cockpit mods. Bert is a saint!
