• 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.

Gauge luminous settings

Hi

Is there anyway to have the luminous light on the 2d panel set to come on when the panel lights are switched on.

Cheers

Mine do in FS2004. The only time they don't is if the panel has specific coding to control that with custom light switches. In those cases they switch between LUMINOUS and non-luminous gauge code elements, based on light switch positions.

Check out the default FS2004 Ford Trimotor. Press Shift 5 to get the electrical panel. Then throw the Panel Light switch. At night the gauges will turn luminous with the switch on.

Hi

Thanks, I forgot to mention I'm using Fsx se
I've searched the Web for info I've added the color element into the panel cfg file and have changed the luminous to a more realistic color

Cheers
