Bell 407 - No exterior lights


I own a few Nemeth Design machines. I have noticed that the exterior lights are a problem. With some models, the reference in the aircraft.cfg is referenced to a light that is not installed i.e. fx_navred_nd. This is a easy fix.

With the Bell 407, there are no exterior lights. Below is a copy of the ND_Bell407_Lo aircraft.cfg, lights section:

//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing, 6=taxi, 7=recognition, 8=wing, 9=logo, 10=cabin
light.0 = 4, 7.48, 0.00, 0.85.00, fx_vclightgre,
light.1 = 10, 2.00, 0.00, 0.85.00, fx_vclightgre,

I have done numerous installs with antivirus both active and inactive. The result is the same, no exterior lights. No nav/position, no strobe, no pulse, no beacon/anti collision. The landing and taxi lights work, which I can not figure out. There must be a reference in code somewhere else that I am missing.

I am running win 7, 64. FSX Delux with Acceleration. Installed nd_bell407_v102 which was purchased from the no longer fspilotshop.

Any help would be great.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Have some more feedback.

The lights as I thought are hard coded. For a brief period they are visible when the chopper loads. Then after loading they are no longer visible. Below are the tail boom position for the lights.

// position
light.2 = 3, -15.50, -3.54, 2.33, fx_navred,
light.3 = 3, -15.50, 3.54, 2.33, fx_navgre,
light.4 = 3, -23.85, 0.1, 3.20, fx_navwhi,
// beacon
light.5 = 1, -22.96, 0.7, 7.15, fx_beacon,
// strobe
light.6 = 2, -15.55, -3.54, 2.33, fx_strobe,
light.7 = 2, -15.55, 3.54, 2.33, fx_strobe,
light.8 = 2, -23.85, 0.1, 3.20, fx_strobe,

One can replace the lights with your own if you own 3rd party.
