View Full Version : Missing effects.

April 29th, 2023, 14:08

A few months back i was messing around with the effects (In particular the default Nav, Beacon, Strobes...) and a thing led to another and I either renamed them or deleted them and i can't remember what they're called.

It makes flying addon aircraft that use the default effects feel wrong and bland;

What I ask is: Does anybody know what they're called or where i can find a replacement? So far i haven't found anything.
