    KORF lights

    I doubt this is of interest to most users as Norfolk International is not a big popular airport. However, I live locally and fly in and out weekly so I'm very glad you created it. Although it's my understanding that it is P3Dv4 compatible, the runway lighting at night is not right. It looks cartoonish and not real at all. Would it be possible to give this a look and see if you get the same results? Thanks, Don
  2. Hi all, I have a problem where by the flood lights in the FSL A320X vanish depending on the angle I'm viewing (see video below). Also the same thing happens with the taxi lights on PMDG's 777. Does anyone have an idea of how to solve or further diagnose?

    Panel Light Focus

    Thank you for a GREAT addition to our aircraft hanger! I've been searching the forum for a possible answer and forgive me if this is a repeat - but - is it just on my rig but when I turn on the panel (back) lighting it's as if everything is out of focus? Don't know if I explain correctly but on the overhead panel and autopilot panel you can hardly make out what it says because it's as if there is a second layer that highlights the letters. I'll take a screenshot next time if this is unclear. Back to the tutorials because thousands of hours in a Boeing or Airbus means nada, ziltch, zero when you learn to start-up and fly this MadDog ...........

    Lights Problem on standard 737-800

    Hi I have just purchased my copy of fsuipc and downloaded Linda 2.5.7 I have some slight problems regarding lights in the 737. If i turn on the panel lights using a switch, when i turn on taxi lights, strobe, Anti-collision (Beacon), they all tend to switch off the panel lights. But turning on landing lights and/or (66376) Logo light, the panel light will remain until one of the other switches is switched. Please note i am very new to all this, so any help would be much appreciated. Also on the console i notice after making a new aircraft module, the next time i start the computer and startup FSX if i want/need to make any adjustments the console always says [E] *** LUA Error: cannot open linda-cfg/aircrafts/Standard 737/config-mcp.lua: No such file or directory. Regardless of this all programing i did all is there (switch assignments) Thanks Phil
  5. Have been assigning functions in FSX to the buttons on my Saitek quadrant (yoke) and wanted to assign the NAV light to a button. When I select the Controller type=yoke and Event category=lights the only selections under Buttons/Keys I get are Landing lights (6 of them), Lights (all), Panel lights and Strobe lights. What happened to NAV, beacon, taxi lights etc? Any suggestions?
  6. Hi I find that when I have the landing lights dim when the panel lights are on. After turning on the panel lights the landing and taxi lights are again bright lights and inside the VC you can still see the landing lights. Darryl
  7. I had no landing lights until the [sHADERS] folder was cleared and allowed FSX to rewrite the shaders. Is it correct the the BA(2016) has no taxi lights?? How do you insert a picture in your post?
  8. Don't know what I did wrong this time ... I've cleaned up my FSX a bit and uninstalled all the dead wood and now only the DOME light works in the Queen. All the other light knobs and switches to full and no lights display in the cockpit. I've cleaned my SHADERS folder and let FSX write new ones - could that be the reason?? I've done a repair of the Queen with no change. I've tried default scenery since the Queen freaks out at some third party scenery what landing and taxi lights concern but that doesn't bring back the cockpit lights either. Shall I uninstall (again) - I just don't want to go through the activation hassles again that I've experienced with the first install? Ai, ai - if you only want to do a Sunday evening, relaxed, quiet house, flight and then it's a whole rigmarole to sort out a fresh set of issues.
  9. Hi there, Would the light problem in the image below be a DX10 related issue? If so, is there anyway I could fix this? I use Steve's Fixer program and have the latest version installed. The problem only occurs for a short period (currently about 15 minutes) at early dusk from around 15h15 to 15h30 local time. Before 15h15 and after 15h30 the lights look normal. I did switch to DX9 and the problem went away - which is why I think it must relate to a DX10 issue? I use FSX-SE and have never seen this or any other DX10 problems before. I was flying the PMDG NGX. Thanks and regards, Rhett Kelly Order Number: FSS0274286 (SteveFX's DX10 Scenery Fixer) PC Specs: Intel i7 Haswell 4770K 3.4Ghz O/C to 4.3GHz CPU, GTX 780 3GB 256bit O/C, 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz RAM, Windows 8.1 FSX:SE DX10
  10. OK Let’s have some fun, here’s a little Quiz for everyone Identify the Airport in the picture (ICAO name) Doing this will expose Night Environment’s next regional project Whoever uncovers the airport location first; gets a free copy of this upcoming NE region release To participate; make a single post that includes only the airport ICAO, This will be your official entry! pls, guys… we use the honor system; no edits! multiple entries are acceptable; but only your last entry counts as your final vote! If the correct location has been identified; the location and the winner will be announced next Sunday you must make your vote on this thread to participate Good luck to all
  11. Hi all, I have just installed REX and just tried to land at Sitka (PASI) in the dark, with no landing lights. Bearing in mind that this is the older Carenado Stationair, which I have not had any troubles with, I tried on approach to turn them on, but to no avail. The light itself didn't even light up, so it isn't a problem with the FSX setting allowing lights to illuminate the ground. So after this episode, I tried the taxi lights...nothing. A different plane...nothing. A Project Airbus A318-111 lit up on the plane itself, but the ground remained dark. I googled the problem and it came up with a REX problem, so I reverted back to my initial back-up files so that all textures were now default, but still nothing in the aircraft I tried. Then I looked at the aircraft.cfg files of my aircraft and noticed this in the Carenado 206: [lights] //Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing light.0 = 3, -2.97, -18.05, 3.45, fx_navredcarenstat light.1 = 3, -2.97, 18.05, 3.45, fx_navgrecarenstat light.2 = 4, -3.27, 0, 2.05, fx_vclight light.3 = 1, -21.1, 0, 7.5, fx_beaconcarenstat light.4 = 2, -3.2, -18.11, 3.45, fx_strobecarenstat light.5 = 2, -3.2, 18.11, 3.45, fx_strobecarenstat light.6 = 3, -20.99, 0, 1.98, fx_navwhicarenstat No landing lights anywhere - none of the lights are type 5, which is what I would expect? Project Airbus planes illuminate the plane itself, but not the ground, since they include a different file, namely fx_PAland: light.5=5, 12.570000, -10.48, -5.81, fx_PAland , light.6=5, 12.570000, 10.48, -5.81, fx_PAland , but even they do not show up. Maybe I am completely wrong, but I think this is where the problem lies, and that with all aircraft...! Help?
  12. Hi guys, I have a problem with my JustSim EDDH scenery. Runway lights are missing! Can you help me? Running on P3D v3.4. Computer specification: - Intel Core I7-4790K (overclocked to 4,4 GhZ) - Gigabyte GTX 970 - 16GB RAM DDR3 - Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 7 Motherboard Here is a photo
  13. Hello dear forum members, recently i've noticed a weird thing in my P3D, which may have been before, but i didn't see that. So, the problem is about night flying. When flying at night time, there are lots of lights, traffic, scenery, etc.., and, when I look at these lights straight, I don't see them until i come about 6-9 miles to them. BUT, when I look at them with my "side vision", those lights are nice a clear. Here's a pic of this thing happening. Hope for your help. Thank you

    I just completed a night flight in the DO228. During startup I had difficulty in getting all the interior lights on and was wondering if I was missing some light switches somewhere. For example, I couldn't get the cabin lighting or the general panel lights to turn on with the overhead switches ( I got the instrument and exterior lights okay). I ended up using the keyboard "L" key for all the lights, then turning off what I didn't need. Any suggestions or am I missing something? Thanks --WH
  15. Hi All, I've been using FSX for several years and have noticed the effect for nav, strobe and beacon light occasionally show through the virtual cockpit walls. The artefact is a bit difficult to reproduce as seems to depend on the exact view direction, zoom level and so on. I recently read this post on the A2A forum which suggested a fix. (The advice below seems to come from Milviz originally.) I duly added the 'ClipMode = Minimum' line to my camera.cfg and it seems to have fixed this old FSX bug. As I haven't seen this edit to the camera.cfg file widely discussed here or anywhere else, I just wondered if other FSX (or P3D) users have tried it. If so, does it work for you? Any unwanted side effects? Cheers, Nick
  16. :( Hi my name is andrew, i have a some problems with the lights on my aircrafts. On the ground the lights are in position and ok, strobe, landing, position...... When takeoff around 2000 or 3000 feets the lighs disappear, Im using the dx10 on fsx, and i install al the patches or I tried all possible solutions, fixes of dx10 have any idea or solution?? Thanks!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
  17. While I'm only a desktop pilot myself, spoken to a few pilots and have gathered the QF lighting procedures, if possible could these be added to the next update (SOP 1)? Before Taxi: Taxi light - ON Wing light - ON Runway Turnoff - ON After Takeoff: (I believe this part already happens) Taxi Lights - OFF Turnoff lights - OFF Retractable Landing Lights - OFF Passing 10000 Wing - OFF Logo - OFF Landing Lights - OFF Passing 10000 decent Fixed Landing - ON Runway Turnoff - ON Taxi- ON Logo - ON Wing - ON Turning into Gate Wing - OFF Taxi - OFF Runway Turnoff - OFF Also if it's possible on the ground, nav lights are only used at night. I'm not quite sure what flows should be but during a missed approach it doesn't make sense to turn off lights if you're returning to the same airport. (Maybe Approach Brief Option - Missed Approach: Diversion or Another Attempt or similar) One last thing, I understand that this would be harder to implement due to voice files but is there any chance of getting the Fuel check during the before start checklist like in the original NGX FS2Crew. Thanks Brendan
  18. Hi, I've been messing around with the NGX between both FSX:SE and P3Dv4, and couldn't help but notice the huge difference in the aircraft's external light textures (particularly NAV and Strobe lights). I did some reading and it appears that the lights are actually baked into the aircraft model and hence cannot be modified simply by replacing texture files. FSX Daytime Screenshot P3Dv4 Daytime Screenshot FSX Nighttime Screenshot P3Dv4 Nighttime Screenshot I do also believe that the a majority of the lighting is now handled by P3Dv4 itself (vs FSX where the lighting was managed by the aircraft model - could be wrong though), but why the drastic change in texture assets? My personal opinion is that P3Dv4's version of the navigation lights actually look more UNrealistic than that from real life. If i could figure out a way to change them to look more like FSX's, I would. Is this a lost cause? Thanks! JJ Ma

    Dubai X

    Managed to capture the glimmering city of Dubai on a short hop from Doha Hope you liked them!
  20. Hello, I found several videos on youtube where you saw the reflection of the external lights (like the strobe lights) on the ground during daytime with the pmdg 737, but I can see them only at night. I know that there's an option for the pmdg 777 to do that, but I have searched in the 737's fmc options and found nothing. It would be great if someone could tell me how I can set it up like this.
  21. Has any one mapped out A2A's Shockwave Lights for the Hawker 850XP? The default lighting seems a little lacking to me.
  22. Hello! So I have been dealing with this light issue but I do not know what causes it. The thing is that the lighting of some aircraft is showing very wired; with a lot of "glow". Runway and AI traffic lights are also wired. I am blaming either REX4 Direct or FTX Global, because before I installed REX4 I didn't have this problem at all. I'm uploading some pictures of the lights reference. Anyways, hopefully someone can help me solve this thing. Thanks in advance. Kind regards,
  23. I recently improved my setup with 3 monitors and set the cfg file to wide - true. The two issues i have are if I run at the bezel corrected resolution I get the spining cursor and also when flying at night the landing lights are really blurry making it hard to distinguish the papi and runway lights. Please help.

    3D Night Lights Missing

    I installed FTX Global with no issues today, but when I start a flight at night I don't see any 3d lightning on streets or cities. FTX Lightning is activated in FTX Central 2 but the rest seems to be fine.
