F-86 misleading description caption

Post by wsciutti » Mon Feb 03, 2020 3:50 pm

Sirs,

I own a number of your products and just added the 86 for P3Dv4.5. The description in the product section says "Custom realistic night lighting, landing lights and custom effects. "

This plane really flies great, however, the acft.cfg file says, under the [lights] section "NO LIGHTS".

What gives????

Thanks in advance.

Lighting is custom, not default. That is why the default [lights] section in the aircraft.cfg say "NO LIGHTS".

There are other methods of lighting an aircraft than the aircraft cfg [lights] section which is quite frankly way too limited for realism.

Thank u. I've been around awhile (eight decades LOL) perhaps you could point me in the right direction:
a. where to locate the 'custom'
2. how better to light the ac at night; I could use this for a number of different ac.

Many thanks for the replies.

uh... it's included and part of the product and, as such, is not transferable to others. Just look at the knobs for lighting in the aircraft and turn them. Should work.
