About this Add-On:

My Add-On will enhance your lighting on X-Plane tremendously, I have enhanced all lighting on X-Plane including City Lights, Airport lights including Runways, taxiways and Stand lights. I have also enhanced all aircraft interior lighting including Floods Domes and MCP panel lights. Aircraft Exterior lights have also been edited such as Navigation, Beacon, Strobe, Taxi and Landing lights.

 

1. Installation Instructions:

You will find the installation instructions in the file as a pdf: Readme MOD Install and Usage Guide

 

Important:

Maybe you need to first lower your setting to the lowest possible when you start xplane. If you have done that in the main menu close xplane again and try to spawn with 737 with the lowest settings possible at day time. when you are spawned you can change to night time close the sim and than open it again. than spawn in again at night time.  Now yo can slowly start pushing your settings up one by one! Dont forget that sometimes you will need to restart X Plane each time you changed one setting!

 

WARNING!!!:

IF YOU UPDATE X-PLANE 12 YOU WILL NEED TO REINSTALL MY MOD BEFORE YOU START THE SIM AFTER THE UPDATE!!!

!

Note: Please download, install and use my other addons as well for the best experiance! (Comming soon!)

Im hopeing for detailed reviews and feedback!

Top Marks and I am pleased to see Zombie has decided to refine this excellent lighting mod for use with XP12.

Despite the barriers put in his way on other sim forums (🤬) he has persisted and now provides us with this Mod here on Xplane.to which improves lighting in many ways. Day and night lighting, scenery, city and sky lighting. Also cockpit interior and plane lighting is improved I feel.

I have asked him to ensure install/update instructions are improved for those not fully up to speed with managing all these multiple files.

Well done and thank you heaps. 👍👍👍👍👍

The files improved nights for sure, but default lua script is breaking lua all the time 😞

I have the beta version of XP12 enabled. Can I still using this mod? XP12B1

Can someone write proper instructions what to put and where? Those Installation insturctions are so confusing 😀

It says:

"INSTALLATION: Unzip the downloaded file into X-Plane 12 folder FLY WITH LUA is required paste it in the fly with lua scripts folder." So fisrt it says to put everything in root folder but then it says "paste it" on FWL- scripts- folder! What is "it"!!!??? Only scripts? WHAT!?

And should I replace all light- related files whith those .dds and lights.txt etc?

I know how LUA works, I tweaked lights by my own:

https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/69345-improved-light-shapes-and-glow-directions/

So I should know how to do this but still no.... 😀

This is great mod but it does cause crash to desktop when using x-csl models for realtraffic, if could find which 'art control' is the issue would be good but dont thing the log gets that much detail? -

--=={This application has crashed!}==--

(Art controls are modified.)

Edit - Thanks for fixing X-CSL CTD !

You really have to improve the way you explain how to install this correctly. I get lost on the LUA part. Please take some time to fix the text, use translators if needed but fix it so we can understand that better. Cheers!

This is an incredible mod and it really enhances the x-plane experience. Although it's not finished and there is room for improvement it is still an improvement from the default! Especially with the new update... it really makes you think how much potential this mod really has!

XP12b6 just dropped. Lighting has gotten somewhat better, but there is still a long way to go on that. I find it odd that I only seem to have the airport lights excessively bright when I'm in external view, but perfectly fine when in the cockpit. Anyone else experiencing this?

Getting better! Still have a washout effect with the airport lighting, but not as bad as with your initial release. I think the issue is more from the LR side than anything, but so far I'm liking what I'm seeing here. Just one question, though...is it possible for the user to tweak the script to get the lighting to his/her taste? Just wondering out of curiosity. Thanks for the hard work, and press on!
