Lights...a new progam...?

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a new program from AVSIMs front page called "Lights".There are no instructions in the ReadMe as to where to put these files. Please advise.

Lights ! is a set of library object lights that can be used in FSX by means of an object placer program. The files in the "Scenery" folder go in your FSX addon sceneryscenery folder, and the files in the "Texture" folder go in your FSX Addon Scenerytexture folder. The objects are then placed into the desired locations with the placement program.Jim

No problem. I believe we need other freeware folks to do the same. In FS8 and 9 we used to be able to find freeware Macro's for just about anything.Jim

Does this mean that the casual FSX user cannot use the "lights" program unless he has an object placer program as well? Please clarify.Stan

Yes Stan, that is correct. Object libraries are used to store 3D models that can be used wherever you want to put them provided you have an object placement program. They will generally be located in the "Scenery Design" section of the Avsim library. Generally, if you are interested in improving an airport, most new users will seek out a placement program which will allow them to place most Microsoft default objects wherever they feel the need. Then comes the use of object libraries by others (like me), then maybe an airport modification program like ADE or FS Planner, then some ground/terrain mods with SBuilder X, then making your own custom objects. Look at the beginning scenery design thread that is pinned to the top. It's a slippery slope...welcome aboard!Jim

Thanks....I was afraid of that. Looks like I need to get more deeply involved in FSX than just flying.Stan
