Man yall confusing the heck out of me. What do you want the lights?? If you want the lights it looks like by the posts he EDITED them himself via photoshop. Photoshop is a payware program that you can use to edit stuff. If he didnt edit them then he could of downloaded it from avsim, flyaway or some other freeware sight. Also you were talking about flight environment which is another fs payware addon. Its not that hard to install you just buy it and hit install then open up the program and choose what textures you want.

i know! i have all the programs he has, he has imported textures from real environment pro into flight environment, and i want to know how to edit those lights to get like his

Pro Member Chief Captain

Use the lens flare filter.

Pro Member First Officer

steve said the lights are edited via PS CS3=Photoshop CS3

@ belgeode, i got photoshop and that crap, how do i actually open the light up in photoshop? sorry im thick 😛

Pro Member Chief Captain
Drew B (belgeode) Chief Captain

You do not "open up" the lights in photoshop... what he most likely did was use the lens flare tool, which creates a bright spot of light as well as the reflections you see elsewhere... basically you tell photoshop where your light source is and how bright it is, and it will render the appropriate lighting and reflection.

All photoshop does is enhance the picture... you cannot manipulate the aircraft itself in the picture.

So what program would in relation to e.g. this plane from Morris?

Looks like the plane itself is dark... he needs to check the texture files to make sure they are set right. Imagetool to possibly convert the texture format, and/or photoshop to lighten it up, then save it back in the format it was in originally.

i did those things like steve with the water and that from real environment pro, but im just getting horrible green water

Pro Member Chief Captain
Drew B (belgeode) Chief Captain

Use the other water setting... there are two of them deep water and bright water.

Pro Member First Officer
drwhoere First Officer

cant find where that setting is, could u give me a screen shot or something?

Pro Member Chief Captain

belgeode can you help me install the textures from REP into FE?

Pro Member Chief Captain
Drew B (belgeode) Chief Captain

No i cannot... I do not think you can do that... BUT...

you CAN manually install the textures into the FS texture folder!!! Just need to find them in the REP folder and copy paste them to the same named file in the FS9/texture folder.

That is how I did it. Takes longer but works like gangbusters!

yh i did, but i just had horrible green dark water everytime

Pro Member Chief Captain
Drew B (belgeode) Chief Captain

Well if you have flight environment... then choose a diff water set. I just changed mine cause all my rivers were summer blue... I wanted brackish brown black.

Working with REP is a pain since you have to find the exact texture files to replace... to be honest the only thing I use NOW from it is the reflection (water)... so I can see the waves move when I fly.

Pro Member First Officer
drwhoere First Officer

well, could you give me you msn or something and you can talk me through it for adding the water propelly? please

thanks for your help
