Taxi lights installation on Learjet 45




I received some request about how I installed taxi lights on the default FSX Learjet45, missing on the original model, and so I decided to write this post.

I would like to specify that I followed this procedure I found on the flightportal website.

The procedure is quite simple: you have to download the effect file and the relative texture which you can find in this package http://www.simviation.com/simviation/static.php?ID=69&page=2 - filename is FSX - Sirocco LT - a 132 ft concept motoryacht. This is a driveable yatch for FSX. After installation, we get the effect files.

These files are:

- [temp_path]/effects/fx_siroccogtx2_reflectors.fx to copy in [fsx_install_path]/effects
- [temp_path]/effects/texture/fx_siroccogtx2_light.bmp to copy in [fsx_install_path]/effects/texture

[temp_path] is the temporary installation folder of the package

Now, you need to edit your aircraft.cfg file, which you can find in the [fsx_install_path]/SimObjects/Airplanes/Lear45 folder

You have to add the following lines in the [LIGHTS] section of the file:

light.XXX=6, -37.1, -4.55, -2.2 , fx_siroccogtx2_reflectors,
light.YYY=6, -37.1, 4.55, -2.2 , fx_siroccogtx2_reflectors,

XXX e YYY must be progressive number, not used yet in the [LIGHTS] section

This is the complete [LIGHTS] section of my aircraft.cfg file:

[LIGHTS]
;/Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing
light.0=3, -39.00, -23.6, -0.25, fx_navredm ,
light.1=3, -39.00, 23.6, -0.25, fx_navgrem ,
light.2=3, -63.63, 0.00, 9.20, fx_navwhi ,
light.3=1, -37.00, 0.00, -2.59, fx_beaconb ,
light.4=2, -36.97, 0.00, -2.62, fx_strobe ,
light.5=1, -63.05, 0.00, 9.75, fx_beaconh ,
light.6=6, -37.1, -4.55, -2.2 , fx_siroccogtx2_reflectors,
light.7=6, -37.1, 4.55, -2.2 , fx_siroccogtx2_reflectors,
light.8 = 4, -26.00, 0.00, 2.00, fx_vclighth,
light.9 = 4, -14.00, 0.00, 1.90, fx_vclight,
light.10=1, -39.00, -24.0, -0.25, fx_strobe ,
light.11=1, -39.00, 24.0, -0.25, fx_strobe ,
light.12 = 4, -30.00, 0.00, 2.10, fx_vclighth ,
light.13 = 4, -20.00, 0.00, 2.10, fx_vclight,

Here is the final output:
