Question about light effects

Recommended Posts

Looking at the aircraft light effects, what are the differences between the different types? For example, fx_navgre.fx compared to fx_navgrec.fx vs fx_navgreh.fx vs fx_navgrem.fx!Same question for fx_vclight, fx_vclighth and fx_vclightwhi as well as fx_beacon, fx_beaconb, fx_beacong, fx_beaconh, fx_beaconwhi and fx_beacony.Thanks

Other than the obvious difference in color, they may have differences in rate (flash speed), sprite sizes, animation (if any), intensities (actually color again), size etc.Some effects fail to be in sync with itself. I.e. a beacon might have the visible flash and the aircraft lightning flash at different times. Really suck! I have changed my beacons so that they don't illuminate the actual aircraft. That way, I also avoid possible problems when I use two, three, or four vc lights to spread out the illumination better in vc. With aircraft illumination enabled on the beacon, I would often experience *really bad* flashing in vc.To bad the flags on the top still doesn't do any good.
