That depends on just HOW the "lights" are installed.If they are part of the model itself, that is, the .mdl file, then there is no way to 'reverse the lights.'If they are simply effects (.fx) lights, then it's a simple matter of editing the aircraft.cfg file.Open the aircraft.cfg file in notepad.exe and look for the 'lights' section. If you find an entry similar to this:light.0=3, -0.3, -27.8, 0.2, fx_navredm ,light.1=3, -0.3, 27.8, 0.2, fx_navgrem ,it is quite simply a matter of swapping the two filenames...

BillUnfortunately the iFDG cfg is a bit different. Take a look:[lights]//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landinglight.1 = 3, -59.40, 0, 5.07, iFDG_A320_whitenavlight.2 = 2, -59.40, 0, 5.07, iFDG_A320_whitestrobe_taillight.3 = 2, -15.45, -54.68, 4.36, iFDG_A320_whitestrobe,light.4 = 2, -15.45, 54.68, 4.36, iFDG_A320_whitestrobe,light.5 = 1, 3.070, 0, 9.00, iFDG_A320_redbeacon_top,light.6 = 1, 6.381, 0, -5.10, iFDG_A320_redbeacon_bottom,light.7 = 5, 19.88, 6.463, 1.93, iFDG_A320_inspection,light.8 = 5, 19.88, -6.463, 1.93, iFDG_A320_inspection,There is no section that covers the colored nav lights. Apparently they are

Yep, the nav lights are in the .mdl file itself. I don't know why they won't "fix them" either, given that it might take all of five minutes to do...It's only a matter of swapping the Materials used! :-roll

Joe, if you wish I'll send you modified mdl (1mb zip), or hack it yourself. Open A318CFM.mdl with Hex Editor and search for strings:"B2000400000000000000000000000000140000009A99193FCDCCCC3E0000FF", and"B2000400000000000000000000000000140000009A99193FCDCCCC3E00FF00".Swap last 00FF and FF00. You have to do four changes for VC and Exterrior lights.L. :)
