Seeing lights out of the cockpit window

Recommended Posts

Hey,I wondered wich settings I have to change in my panel.cfg or aircraft.cfg to see the lights of my airplane out of the cockpit windows. Are the gauges or effect files to ad in them or do I have to change something else?Regards,JeroenVelserbroek, The Netherlands

To see lights out the cockpit window, they must be in the virtual cockpit (interior) model as well as the exterior model of the aircraft. If not, you will see lights hit the tarmac from the exterior view (spot plane) but not from the 2D or VC panel view.This works the same as looking outside left rear to see the wing and/or engines from the 2D or vc. The wing and engines must be in the vc model or they will not be seen.If you are designing in gmax, simply copy the parts of the aircraft you wish to see from the vc (including lights) and put them in the interior model.Milton

On another forum it was stated only G-Max could provide this.

ronzie,I really do not know. You might post the question over at FFDS. Most of the good folks there have an FSDS background.Milton
