P3D v4 Simmershome Slim Lights - WIP

So far, all the lights solutions in P3D did not working satisfactory for me or were inperformant.

SH Slim Lights is a solution that I will gradually offer country by country first in Europe and also one that comes with high performance
Together with the Airport Ercan there are the Slim Lights for Cyprus as always for free.

Features SH Slim Lights

- high performance bgl lights
- 100% accurate based on OSM / GIS data
- multicolored
- separated into primary, secondary, tertiary and residential
- Configurator for switching off individual areas according to road type
- Countries available individually
- Compatible with all addons and aerial image scenes
- P3D v4 + only

Here are the pictures from Cyprus (WIP)

Picture 1 Airport Ercan direction Nicosia

Picture 2 Airport Ercan direction Nicosia

Picture 3 Nicosia Standard FL 160

Picture 4 Frametest with high configuration ( Sim and lights)

Picture 5 Nicosia Standard 1500 Ft

For industry and business another color is reserved, which will later be used as an update. As always, that costs nothing, except to sign up with me at forum.simmershome.de

Like many others I use Open LC Lights from OrbX and there are good lights there. My addon is also made to work in combination and not overloaded. Open LC looks like a Las Vegas city and ends suddenly. Real it is not in all cases. My addon will change the abrupt crash here and continue with discreet lights.

here Kiel (Germany) with OLC Europe Lights

and here
Kiel with Open LC Lights and this Addon

Today cityscapes at a maximum test / stress with full AI and high settings for VFR with FTX GEN / GES. On my system still VFR capable with 25 frames minimum.
Combined with OLC Europe lights








There are extensive configuration options for every hardware
Here is a picture of the configurator

In Germany, almost 50 million light objects are installed at the end. Sorry for mistake in Configurator Headline , will be corrected.
Rainer, according to the pictures the tool is absolutely great
Well, that's a maximum test and not suitable for any hardware.
But in the end we will create a standard profile in the configurator, which can be used for most hardware. But with my I9 I can also fly over three screens, but there is already a lot of load there. The lights actually only hunt for 3-5 frames. But if you have only 20, that's 5 too many;)
It was tested with OrbX GES / GEN, which is not really needed at night.
Here a few images from Beta Test.
Note that the images are no screenshots, they were taken by camera to give a feeling how it looks in a HC with a 180 degree screen and 3 HD Beamer.

The shot were made at EPWA, LOWW and LSGG

Today pictures of Prague and Bratislava

What's next with the SlimLights from Simmershome?

I have been asked several times and the decision is now final.

The SH SlimLights become a "World Wide Addon", especially because they can be used in LC-based areas as well as in photo sceneries worldwide.

At the same time, the response of the users has been really impressive.

Here is the timetable for the next period until December 2018

Europe South + America South - September 2018
Europe East + Amerca Central+ Mexico - September 2018
Europe North + Canada / Greenland - October 2018
USA (North East + Middle West) - October 2018
USA (Pacific + South + West) - November 2018

Europe Central - Released
Africa - Released
Australia / Oceania - Released

Then the planning for Asia will be published. The plan is for the add-on to be fully available by spring 2019, covering the entire world.


If we would get the missing LC from OrbX still, the thing would be round. Ultimately, however, this is indifferent to my development, as SlimLights also work completely without OrbX or other additional lights reliably.

LCEN Ercan will be available in October 2018 anyway.
How To - all other Lights off

Whoever bans all other lights with the SlimLight get minimum 5+ frames, depending on the location

That is how it goes:

1. Switch all Slim Lights to 100%
2. Disable all OLC lights in scenery.cfg
3. Move the OrbX \ scripts \ lights folder outside the OrbX folder and save it.
4. Deactivate New Lights in GEN/GES

If I finish the whole world, that will make sense in every case.
Then there will be a non-configurable World Edition, which consists of only one layer and is intended for this purpose
