• 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.

Light is too small

I am placing landing lights on the deck of an aircraft carrier successfully but I have a problem I don't know how to do. I downloaded the FX Editor and it works great but my problem is I don't know what to do with it to enlarge these pin point lights to the size they should be as landing lights or searchlights or any other lights bigger than MDCx makes the effect when you add a light with the Object placement tool. Please.....
would 3rd party lights placed as models be a better option? Not sure how this worlds with a moving deck
I used MCDx because I don't have any way or knowledge of placing third party lights onto a model. I know there must be a way of enlarging them with the fx editor.
I appreciate the article but it is totally "Greek" to me, I don't understand any of it. I just learned this week how to use the object-placer and attach points in MDCx. Why can't I just enlarge the size of the fx effect in fx-editor? My placement is absolutely dead on using MDCx.
I have it and have been experimenting with it. I have a few effects in FSX that in the viewer i like what they look like and later today because you can't print them out i am going to copy them down and then duplicate my effects with those values and accomplish what i need to. Thank you.

I do NOT have P3DV4 because my computer will not run it. I use FSX(A) and this is ah FSX light and looks quite good. Thank you for your reply.
