Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station Scenery.

I don't remember whether I actually got any custom lighting to work right in FS 2004 or not. I remember it was painful. This is another library of objects aimed at the freeware developer. Some I've used in my sceneries and some I haven't. It's a little bit of everything from single lights to stadium lighting to tarmac lighting. All objects are native FSX and built with GMAX and the SP-2/Acceleration SDK. All lights wash the ground and have a "lit" presentation in addition to the ground wash during the hours between dusk and dawn.

Here are the GUID's, Friendly names, and descriptions of the various lights:

8D8361104A590919C3EDDB836C396F21 roundspot This is an individual light of the same type as on the large poles.

353E1D1C436A3979601B6BAAC5EA67F4 4litesqr This is a parking lot light of the reduced lux type. It casts a cloverleaf pattern of light on the ground.
