Appron Lights

#1
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!

Take a look here http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=273813
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.
