Hello everyone. I use the iFDG series of airbus planes (A319 mostly, but also 320 and 321... for FS9).

Has anyone had success installing shockwave lights on these, and if so may I copy your notes please?

I am going to experiment with mine somewhat, but I would rather not trial and error if someone already has it figured out.

I use both the CFM engine and IAE engine models (I have about 15 different iFDG variants of the 320 family, which I fly for my VA USAirways virtual).

Thanks in advance...

if I figure it out I will reciprocate the favor and post my notes here.

Oh I forgot to mention.. one of the quirks with these planes is they have nose gear landing lights also, but NO virtual cockpit... so the addition to the panel file does not work for me.

So far though here is what I have....

[lights]

//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing
light.0 =3, -15.888, -54.32, 3.11, fx_shockwave_navred ,
light.1 =3, -15.888, 54.32, 3.11, fx_shockwave_navgre ,
light.2 =2, -64.80, 0.07, 5.07, fx_shockwave_strobe ,
light.3 =2, -16.41, -54.68, 3.15, fx_shockwave_strobe_2 ,
light.4 =2, -16.41, 54.68, 3.15, fx_shockwave_strobe_3 ,
light.5 =1, 3.00, -0.15, 8.50, fx_shockwave_beaconh ,
//light.6 =3, -20.85, -47.23, 4.18, fx_navwhi ,
//light.7 =3, -20.85, 47.01, 4.18, fx_navwhi ,
light.8 =1, 2.50, -0.15, -5.00, fx_shockwave_beaconb ,
light.9 = 5, -2.240, -7.6, -3.00, fx_Shockwave_landing_light // Shockwave light
light.10 = 5, -2.240, 7.6, -3.00, fx_Shockwave_landing_light // Shockwave light
light.11 = 5, 28.600, 0.00, -5.0, fx_Shockwave_landing_light // Shockwave light
light.12 = 5, 21.777, 6.463, 1.791, fx_shockwave_navwhi_l
light.13 = 5, 21.777, -6.463, 1.791, fx_shockwave_navwhi_l
light.14 = 3, -56.73, 11.50, 5.86, iFDG_A320_logo
light.15 = 3, -56.73, -11.5, 5.86, iFDG_A320_logo


light 11 is the nosewheel light that I am trying to get so that it turns off when gear is up.

This was just tested on the iFDG A319 CFM model Steelers USAirways texture. Panel I am using is Ken Mitchell's awesome A320 panel. Those a320 inspection lights however are not linked to ken's wing inspection switch... if I can find a way to link them then I can replace those too with shockwave lighting.

Hi Belgeode

Be aware that the Ifdg as flex wings, and that you will get an offset with your wing navlights and stobe once airborne :(

Yeah, I noticed that... it is not bad though... I am more worried about getting the nosegear light fixed.

BY GEORGE I GOT IT!!!!

Here is the finalized lighting section for iFDG Airbus A319. Not tested on 320 or 321. I recommend you use Ken Mitchell's A320 panel with these aircraft.

Notes-

The nosewheel gear is now linked to the taxi lighting switch, along with the backwards facing fuselage side lights.

So far as I noticed, in flight the nav and strobe lights flex with the wing.

Landing lights switch controls the under wing landing lights only.

Replace your entire [lighting] section of your aircraft.cfg with this one below. No need to make any additions to the panel.cfg


[lights]

//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing, 6=taxi
light.0 =3, -15.888, -54.32, 3.11, fx_shockwave_navred ,
light.1 =3, -15.888, 54.32, 3.11, fx_shockwave_navgre ,
light.2 =2, -64.80, 0.07, 5.07, fx_shockwave_strobe ,
light.3 =2, -16.41, -54.68, 3.15, fx_shockwave_strobe_2 ,
light.4 =2, -16.41, 54.68, 3.15, fx_shockwave_strobe_3 ,
light.5 =1, 3.00, -0.15, 8.50, fx_shockwave_beaconh ,
//light.6 =3, -20.85, -47.23, 4.18, fx_navwhi ,
//light.7 =3, -20.85, 47.01, 4.18, fx_navwhi ,
light.8 =1, 2.50, -0.15, -5.00, fx_shockwave_beaconb ,
light.9 = 5, -2.240, -7.6, -3.00, fx_Shockwave_landing_light // Shockwave light
light.10 = 5, -2.240, 7.6, -3.00, fx_Shockwave_landing_light // Shockwave light
light.11 = 6, 21.777, 6.463, 1.791, fx_shockwave_navwhi_l // Shockwave light
light.12 = 6, 21.777, -6.463, 1.791, fx_shockwave_navwhi_l // Shockwave light
light.13 = 3, -56.73, 11.50, 5.86, iFDG_A320_logo
light.14 = 3, -56.73, -11.5, 5.86, iFDG_A320_logo
light.15 = 6, 29.000, 0.00, -5.0, fx_Shockwave_landing_light_small
