ITX-D Lights Controls, gives you the control of X-Plane night lighting in a very intuitive way. By dragging the sliders you will be able to achieve the result you want, live. Also includes a custom lights.txt file with bigger light coverage. FPS impact in most cases will be one, or very minor.
INSTALLATION: Unzip the downloaded file into X-Plane 11 folder. Will request to overwrite the default lights.txt file.
Note: In case of an update, the updater would like to overwrite the file with the default one. Don't allow to do it, or after update, re-install this utility.
USAGE: Go to Plugins -> FlyWithLua -> FlywithLua Macros and click on the ITX-D Lights Controls. A window will pop up (as seen in the images) to set the values you like. Once you are happy with the results, click the Save Settings button to save the settings. From now on X-Plane will load with those settings, automatically.
Note: Using extreme values, will drop fps significantly and make the output unrealistic. Use with care!
Strongly recommended to use with Extended Night Lighting, as seen in the images below.
