David Murden Posted November 7, 2018 Share Posted November 7, 2018 Hi, I thought I would also first do a guild for people who have not got FSL Spotlight installed. Let's get started. First go here and download the free to use FSL Spotlight It's like any program, just install it like you would anything else. You will now be able to use it on any aircraft you have installed within P3Dv4. Pls, note you don't need to use it with FSL A320-A319 as its built in. You will see within P3D in the bottom left corner of your screen a very small arrow in a box, please note this does not show if you take screenshots. When you load the 747-8F within the sim, click on the arrow. You will now see the control panel. As you can see in the first screenshot above you just click on the "Active" below the title for the light you wish to use. Tip# When you open it you cannot see the controls to darken or brighten the lights. Look for the little white line I've marked with the red arrow, mouse over it and drag it left to look like the second image. Now when you mouse over the "brightness line you can see (picture 3) a "-" "+" and a "DOT" the number on the brightness line is the amount it's set to (0-100) You can click the "-" or "+" to change the level or.........mouse over the "DOT" hold down your left mouse button and you can drag a red line out. Now you can "drag" the brightness by moving your mouse. the two grey lines you see are the range you can use (0-100). To use my FSL Spotlight PMDG 8F ini, you will have to download the profile at the bottom of the page and drop it within your PMDG aircraft folder. That's it! Now to the profile. EDIT NEW Version V2 new lighting with ambient light and new colour. ALL Screenshots below updated new v2 ini at the bottom. Enjoy! First, just screenshots showing just the new lighting. Radio flood light Reading lights Panel Lighting, pls note I did not make captain and first officers independent as I always end up setting them the same anyway. Now with ambient lighting view from Captain's seat. Note light hitting the back of yokes. As it would IRL. I use the build in backlighting and here is how I set it. With that set. The MCP panel light. The overhead with Dome light on Chart light. I hope you enjoyed! The profile is below. PS you know it's me as I spelt panel wrong but if you ever see a post with no spelling mistakes you know I've been hacked. FSLSpotLights.ini 4 4 1 Quote Link to comment
