View Full Version : Taxi lights
12-21-2004, 04:44 AM
Well as I said before this is a great product and thanks to all of the developers.
Now that you told us to address some suggestions for the realese of a future service pack I will like to include in this list that you can see the taxi lights from inside the 2d cockpit.
I can see the taxi lights from outside in the spot view but not from inside.
If this is a bug just for me is there a workaround?
Thanks again to all of DF.

I can see the taxy light from the 2D cockpit as it swings to the left and right as I steer.

Yep, taxi lights are visible from 2D cockpit. The light is dimmer than what you see in most FS aircraft, but you can definitely notice it when you steer as the light moves right and left with the nose gear. Make sure your lights slider in FS is set to max (8 lights, I believe).

I can see the taxi lights from the 2d cockpit but only when I have the landing lights on. If I turn of the landing lights the taxi lights are gone.

So, when only the taxi lights are on and you begin to taxi and turn the nose wheel, you don't see the taxi light "cone" turning as well? Not sure how this is possible since the taxi light is built into the model just like the landing lights. Soif one is working, the other should as well. Again, make sure your lights slider is maxed in FS and verify taxi light from 2D during taxi, especially during turns since you can see the "cone" moving with the nose gear.

I replaced the default taxi lights with the ones in flightsim that are dimmer than the originals before installing the DF727.
For other planes I didnīt have a problem.
But this fine aircraft probably has its own intensity.
Is this possible?
I have the slider in 8 in the FS.

Yes, this could be a problem. The taxi light is pretty dim to begin with. If you use a set that makes it even dimmer, I suppose it's possible you won't see them very well, if at all. I'd suggest restoring the lights to the ones included in the 727 package, then tell us if there is a problem. I think you'll find you'll be able to see them.

Thanks Tod, that was the problem.
I restored the original bitmaps for the taxi lights and now I can see them.
Thanks a lot.
And congratulations again!!!!
