That looks awesome!!!!

WHat were real ww2 carrier lights like though. Any pictures??

I imagine they did not light up much and only recovered A/C at night when all else failed.
Imagine the submarines bolting for the carriers lit up like faris wheels

Yes Destraex, but it's great for night training.

I tried to set those lights on the carrier structure but they always show over the water.

Any tips mseraser??

make the lights Red for night-ops and you'll have it nailed, the white lights at night would blind you, where the Red will not. just a word from a retired Navy Carrier Helmsman http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Ahh, yes I know the feeling. My brand new Abit KV8 Pro had to be RMA'ed with a bad #1 memory slot. I hope you didn't have to send your via UPS, on probably the slowest time of the season... like I did.

Also, I know the smoke and fire would probably cause a fps hit, but do the light flares cause any hit?

How do you get the lights to elevate? I have tried everything but when I put them on a carrier they end up under it in the water, LOL. And the only colored lights I have are white; must be missing something. Please Help.

Thanks

Zoom in to 3d mode.

Hole the F4 key and the right mouse button, and you can move them up and down... smoke and fire, too...

Full Mission Builder.
Static Objects, scroll down.
Choose light, fire or smoke.
Place selected item wherever you want.
Hit ENTER to get 3D mode.
Once there hold F4 and use Right Mouse to change elevation.

Correct me if something is missing/wrong. Hope this help, it´s really worth a try.

Correct, but just to add: To get to 3D mode you must zoom in quite a bit. Either hold the shift key and left mouse button to draw a box or use the teeny tiny scroll bar on the left side.

Can you request lights on from the air (in a/c)or is it an addition in config files or something like that?

now if u could make it more like what the lights are on carriers now to indicate glide path...red over white, ur right (on glide path), red over red , ur dead (below glide path)

i cant get the lights on the carrier either.
