Hello,Add this to your aircraft.cgi under the lights section, adjust the second, third and fourth (X, Y and Z) figures and then change the 9 to your last light number and you're set.light.9=4, 5.5, -0.4, -0.95, fx_vclight ,Rotorhead.

Thanks for that info RH.It's the stock gauges that dont seem to light up as you can see in the screen shot. I've used Fs panel studio ( paid up full version) to put the panel together. I cant seem to find any reference in this program regarding this problem. If any body can help.....!

theres a way to create bright gauges in gmax by using lightmap textures as self-illumination map in the material editor. unfortunately it doesnt work in fsds since fsds doesnt support lightmap textures.tom(project airbus)
