• 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.

Appron Lights

Hi, i was wondering what's the best way to create the light on the pavement. I mean the light projected on the floor... Is it a ground poly with transparency? or an effect? I tried a transparent groundpoly but the texture looks horrible. I think this is one of the last things before i can finish my scenery, Thank you!

and here http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19286&highlight=helo+ramp+lights they talk about how to make those ground lights.
You can get " Ramplight library", from N4gix (Bill Leaming). very cool, you get those groundsplash lights. you get 5 differents types of ground splash lights.I used them for my scenery, what I did was to delete the light poles because the airport had them already.
Thank you! i will check that
 
Jatanobodee talked something about that problem. don't know if it's the same issue I never tried to make groundsplash lights but I would suspect on the "alpha test mode", in the Fsx extended parameters, try with different values. you know .. never, less, equal, greater but maybe I don't know what I am talking about. saludos.

Hi,

Why not try some of the ones you find in the FSDeveloper download section first?
Present day computer power does not have any problem with apron lights added as effects.
No transparency issues. I use Jim Dhaenens' ones (although a bit modified).
 
FSXA also has several ramp lights that splash lighting on the ground in both white and orange color. They are in the FSXP_FillerObjects.bgl.
