• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

3-D Lights - For Prepar3Dv4 and Prepar3Dv5

3-D Lights - For Prepar3Dv4 and Prepar3Dv5 Version 1.00

3-D Lights - For Prepar3Dv4 and Prepar3Dv5

This 3-D light library includes various 3-D lights. There are lights that are visible only from one side, while other lights are visible from both sides as well as from above. And there are lights that indicate on the one side a different color than on the opposite side.

The 3-D lights are attached to the respective 3-D model as a library object. The Modelconverterx from Arno Gerretsen is good for this.

beacon light / for rotation beacon lights
blue light / for Taxi lights
centerlight / for Centerline lights
green light / for runway end lights
red light / for Obstacle lights
red/green light / for replaced threshold lights
white light / for runway edge lights
white/red / for replaced treshold lights

The zip archive contains sample files (Test Scenery). These BGL files show the 3-D lights at the runway of KHAF Half Moon Bay.
