Looks good, my only critique is that military navigation lights (red/green wingtip lights) don't flash like strobes but instead just alternate on-off, but most of the time navigation lights should be steady.
Yes, that's right. And from what I've seen, on this particular aircraft those lights are steady. I've made them flash just for testing purposes. :)

Actually many military aircraft use the red nav lights as taxi pre take off in strobe mode, after which they are switched to nav mode. It depends on the particular country of origin and specific aircraft. The MiG29 uses the red nav lights in strobe more until right before take off, especially during carrier operations and low visibility conditions.

I'm sure there is some confusion here, what you describe is semi true but only in relation to the anti-collision beacon, during ground operation the beacon is red but once airborne it is switched to white (mostly automatically), the navigation lights referred to in this case are the red and green wingtip lights for port/starboard, they are not strobe lights and only in some military aircraft are they set to a pulsing light, but this is not a strobe effect but rather a cycling from on to off.
I am a commercial pilot and flying instructor, hopefully I haven't forgotten any of this stuff.

 ... would be nice to have some list of lights/modes for specific aircrafts. Doe, bad is, that probably even export or version-variations can probably have some changes in the set-up too.

That thing only wants to go in to the space, I can't control it down on Earth...

Also, it seems that the lights don't illuminate the ocean floor:

Wow Levi you sure?

It's supposed to be neutrally bouant... And it works fine on my machine.

Mixture control for reverse.
Throttle control forward.
Side ways control, up n down and rotate...

It's a flight model for a very large Capital space ship.... Like the Enterprise.

Ah, that's how you pilot it. It's working now. For some reason I was spawning it too close to the ground, kicking me in to the space. :facepalm:

Here you have it exploring the Grand Canyon until lights can illuminate the ocean floor:



Code: [Select]
function initialize(reload){geom = this.get_geomob(0);jsb = this.jsb();snd = this.sound();
this.set_fps_camera_pos({x:0.0,y:50.0,z:4.5});
arc1 = this.add_spotlight_source({x:0,y:34.5,z:15}, {y:1}, 0.2, 50, 1.0, {x:30000,y:90000,z:90000}, 0.2);
arc2 = this.add_spotlight_source({x:-5.3,y:36.2,z:-3.8}, {x:-0.4,y:1}, 0.1, 50, 1.0, {x:2000,y:5000,z:5000}, 0.2);
arc3 = this.add_spotlight_source({x:5.3,y:36.2,z:-3.8}, {x:0.4,y:1}, 0.1, 50, 1.0, {x:2000,y:5000,z:5000}, 0.2);
this.light_toggle(arc1);
this.light_toggle(arc2);
this.light_toggle(arc3);
}
