It is only when I copy some of the 2019 PBR liveries provided by tubbers into the ProsimB738-2020-PBR Pro folder that the Retractable lights don't work on those 2019 liveries (on my system). I just assumed those older livery models were not completely compatible with the Prosim module or some other file. Not at all a big deal as I don't expect older systems to always work with newer systems.
Hi Mark,

I see, I understand it now.
It's not enough to simply copy one of the old 2019 liveries (into a freshly made) folder, but you also need to carefully make the new entries in the aircraft.cfg file.

1. The aircraft name should start with and MUST contain the string (text): "ProsimB738 PBR 2020". Something like: title=ProsimB738 PBR 2020 - Impeachment_livery.
ProSim will only recognize a newly added plane if it finds the string above, otherwise the ProSimP3DModule.dll will not work and there will be no lights and animations.

2. The new folder's name also needs to be defined in the texture=Impeachment line.

3. One needs to do this manually, because Matthew's entry-examples for the aircraft.cfg are NOT valid anymore for the 2020 version!

Hi Lapi,

Forgot to mention. Nice improvement on the taxi light with the 1.54 model.
Best Regards,

Thank you Lapi,

Understood and made the changes below. Do I need to change name of the ui_variation= as well?

the folder name in Prosim-AR\Simobjects\Airplanes\Prosim738-2020-PBR Pro is Texture.Alaska


All lights now working great!

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,

No need to change the ui_variation, but you can if you wish.
