You will need to supply your own light effect. I'm using a Shockwave landing light effect.



//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing

light.0 = 3, -64.70, -37.00, -0.50, fx_navredm ,

light.1 = 3, -64.70, 37.00, -0.50, fx_navgrem ,

light.2 = 3, -104.63, 0.00, 14.30, fx_navwhi ,

light.3 = 1, -29.00, 0.00, -2.30, fx_beaconb ,

light.4 = 2, -104.63, 0.00, 15.00, fx_strobe ,

light.5 = 1, -32.50, 0.00, 7.00, fx_beaconh ,

light.6 = 4, -10.00, 0.00, 3.90, fx_vclighth,

light.7 = 2, -64.50, -36.50, -0.50, fx_strobe ,

light.8 = 2, -64.50, 36.50, -0.50, fx_strobe ,

light.9 = 6, -3.93, 0.000, -2.00,fx_shockwave_landing_light_747_nose.fx,

Still thinking about a new flightsim only computer!  ✈️

Bombardier_CRJ_700 is the folder name in FSX, so I assume you mean FSX.


That aircaft has three lights that give a light-splash on the ground. (2 landing, 1 taxi light.)

Those lights are not defined in the aircraft.cfg file.

They are lights that are part of the model. And that is something you can not change.

These three lights will always come on at the same time. (as landing lights.)

Nothing can be changed about that.


You can add a light effect like MrZippy shows there, but that effect will not give a light splash on the ground.

That means you can see that lonely taxi light in outside view only. But from inside the cockpit, you will notice no difference between having the taxi light on or off. (And it will be of no help at all when trying to taxi anywhere. It won't help you see better.)


The shockwave lights mrzippy uses are payware effects. Cost about $ 35 or so I think.


There are also taxi light effect files incliuded in fsx, but they don't look nearly as nice. Not a volumetric cone of light like the shockwave lights, the taxi lights included in fsx look like a tiny white dot. No more then that.
