In 3.03 can you put the airfield lights on the carriers?

How do you "raise the lights". Is there a key stroke? This sounds cool...

How high do you raise the lights? In other words what is the height of the carrier decks ?

If you zoom in the map close to where you see the carrier (use the slider on the left), you can hit enter and it will put in "in the game", so to speak, at ground level 3d view. You'll be able to see how high the lights are.

Fun with Lights...As far as Carriers I think it only applies to static types.

Quality isn't the greatest but you get the Idea, Moving the lights around in 3D is a bit of a pain but easy enough just time consuming.

This is good for surprise night attacks, say at the VERY start of a war. Imagine the Eastern Front Barborossa: Villages at Lvov still with lights on around the city (simulating window lights, etc).

There was another Russian city(forget name) where German panzers entered and the Trams were still running! The people thinking they were Russian tanks!


This would help simulate the total unpreparedness of the Russians.

I'm gonna bomb the city see if it knocks any of the lights out. Will post back here with info.

Wow!!!
This would be a spot on for blind day missions!

But I don`t see any of thosehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Well Lights are imprevious to 500 pounders. Dropped 5 bombloads from A-20 at low alt. Buildings were wiped out but lights were uneffected. Soak...I'm terrible with missions usually just make on-line maps. If you want this one I'll upload it for you. Then you can mess with it if you like.
