    I have installed a HP67 - Hastings aircraft that was initially designed for FS2002.

    After an issue over the spinning props (black discs - now rectified) everything works as it should but I have one outstanding issue to do with placement of the landing lights.

    They appear to be "behind" the wing!!!

    The aircraft.cfg file gives the light data as:

    HP67-Hastings
    [LIGHTS]
    //Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit
    light.0=3, -4.4, -56.80, 0.60, fx_navred
    light.1=3, -4.4, 56.80, 0.60, fx_navgre
    light.2=3, -50.70, -0.05, 2.50, fx_navwhi
    light.3=1, -41.00, 0.00, 20.45, fx_beacon

    If 1 = beacon etc ..... what about landing lights? Only "beacon" and "navigation" modeled.

    I note in the FSX default 737-800 cfg:

    Def_737-800
    [LIGHTS]
    //Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing
    light.0 = 3, -24.20, -56.60, 3.90, fx_navredm ,
    light.1 = 3, -24.20, 56.60, 3.90, fx_navgrem ,
    light.2 = 2, -71.32, 0.00, 5.92, fx_strobeh ,
    light.3 = 2, -25.00, -57.20, 4.20, fx_strobe ,
    light.4 = 2, -25.00, 57.20, 4.20, fx_strobe ,
    light.5 = 2, -7.55, 0.00, -5.50, fx_beaconb ,
    light.6 = 1, 2.00, 0.00, 8.70, fx_beaconh ,
    light.7 = 4, 47.60, 0.00, 3.00, fx_vclighth ,
    light.8 = 3, -29.50, -56.60, 3.70, fx_navwhih ,
    light.9 = 3, -29.50, 56.60, 3.70, fx_navwhih ,


    5=landing but NO landing lights are indicated through 0 - 9:confused:

    Can anybody tell me where the landing lights details are given in text???

    What I would like to do is bring the landing lights into their correct position.

    It has to be quite straightforward ;) I just can't see it right now.

    OR - is it built into the model-file, perhaps?

    Landing and Taxi lights are built into the model file. They cannot be moved or edited without the original source code.
