    Hi!

    In the Aerosoft Forum you can see a video that shows the new real-time light calculations of P3DV4 in an impressive way:

    sorry i dont want to be the party pooper

    while i agree its new to V4 but isn't this the same effect, as dynamic ground lighting thats already available

    is this any different to the adjustable spotlights on aircraft? I noticed on the demo videos and my installed helos you can reproduce the same effect as the torch in your video

    And ive also notice with certain light based .fxs they cast a down light from the .fx onto the ground only illuminating whats in range

    could you please explain more, on what is new in your video that still requires implementation into general use please as ive read your post and the replies as its a new development of v4

    the attached image is a stock p3d aircraft that also has this ability

    That stock P3D aircraft uses "fx_landing.fx" for its landing light effect (probably attached to the model).

    In P3DV4, that effect has been made into a dynamic light, so any aircraft using it now has a dynamic landing light.

    I hope that explains Jeansy.

    I understand that, however I may have misread his initial post and the other replies, but my understanding thus far of his post called real time lighting is another thing than dynamic lighting which has just been designed for v4

    and Im questioning if its the same thing that was included in v4

    That's not exactly correct.
    Only the light on the flashlight is a landing light. The other lights are standard fx files that have been slightly modified!

    P3DV4 Avatar with "dynamic" flashlight

    Hello!

    Would like to briefly inform you that since yesterday a new package of civil avatars for P3DV4 exists. An avatar (William) was equipped with a flashlight and the new Avatar package supports the new features (dynamic lights) of p3DV4. So then also explorations of scenerys in darkness are nothing more in the way :-)

    The download of the avatars is as always freely accessible, just take a look: http://www.bahrometrix.de/downloads/prepar3d-avatare-download/

    *It is recommended to uninstall old versions of the avatars!

    Best regard
    Christian
