Note that the fx files specified are pure "white light"[LIGHTS]//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing 6=taxi, 7=recognition, 8=wing, 9=logolight.0=3, -5.97, -21.00, -0.56, fx_navredlight.1=3, -5.97, 21.00, -0.56, fx_navgrelight.2=7, -20.10, 0.00, 8.10, fx_navwhi.fxlight.3=1, -24.41, 0.00, 9.92, fx_beaconlight.4=9, 9.50, 0.30, 1.50, esbj400_panelflood.fxlight.5=9, 9.50, -0.30, 1.50, esbj400_panelflood.fxlight.6=2, -5.97, -21.00, -0.56, fx_strobelight.7=2, -5.97, 21.00, -0.56, fx_strobelight.8=8, 9.0, -17.8, 8.60, esbj400_icelight //rightwing icelightlight.9=8, 9.0, 17.8, 8.60, esbj400_icelight //leftwing icelightlight.10=8, 2.25, -3.12, 0.1, fx_navwhi.fx //rightwing icelight point sourcelight.11=8, 2.25, 3.12, 0.1, fx_navwhi.fx //leftwing icelight point sourcelight.4 and light.5 are using the esbj400_panelflood.fx file. I used two of 'em and offset them left and right to spread the "light" more evenly across the entire panel. They are tied to #9, which is the "LOGO" lights switch (otherwise unused), and controlled by an "autoswitch" that will turn 'em on at sunrise and turn 'em off at sunset.

If there were, I wouldn't have needed to add "daytime flood lights" to the panel... :(BTW, please don't SHOUT... I can 'hear' you just find... :)BillAVSIM OmbudsmanFounder and Director,Creative Recycling of Aircraft Partshttp://catholic-hymns.com/frbill/FS2002/images/fartslogo.jpg
