• 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.

MSFS [SOLVED] Apron lights appeared automatically

Ok so this is so strange...

I have modified the default Asobo taxi paintedlines texture, i only add more opaccity and a bit of dirt.

Now some apron lights have automatically appeared, im not sure if that texture is the reason or i have change other thing without knowing it. but this is so strange, i can't delete them now.

Are they apron lights or taxiway lights? If taxiway then you should be able to turn of center and edge lights in the link properties
Its a PaintedLine, if i remove my own material, the light are still there, if y remove the line and reedo, the light still there...

I dont see any option on Properties panel

OK I am not too familiar with the editors here but there will be one for taxiway paths. In there are some settings for lights.


This is the XML code which is used by the compiler to generate paths. There are properties for centerLineLighted, leftEddgeLighted and rightEdgeLighted

I am not sure if MSFS acts on these or whether you created actual taxiway paths in your project rather than (or as well as) the painted line. Since you mention removing your own material then perhaps these default lights are showing through. I don't know but it might be worth checking?
It´s very strange, when i remove a line, the lights disappear but as soon as i remove other diferrent line (with same lihgting problem) the lghts from the first line pop up again
Oh my good... im stupid... gonna say the solution if is someone is as stupid as me hahaha.

I have had selected a LIGHTED defaul paintedline, i thought that it was a thiny line not a line with lights.

You have to select a line without the word LIGHTED.

PD. You can see it in the screenshot.
