Has anyone done the lights Manfred Jahn's awesome C-117D??
Thanx! :)


I just checked out that plane, very nice. There was a time in the 'early FSX Days' where that quality level would have brought in about $19.99 for it if it were a payware.

If he had some time, recoded it to a higher resolution, and then brought in the 3D gauges and instruments, I bet he could actually sell it for an easy $20-$25. bill, (USD).

I used to go looking for freeware aircraft all the time. Now all I have is the T45C by Dino and the Falcon 50 for which I just liked even though the Falcon 50 freeware is pretty crude by todays standards.
But these days, if you really want to get the full blast of graphics and immersion in your aircraft, you need to pretty much buy it all.

Of course, that's assuming the computer you're using, ("You're" as in any 3rd person), is updated to the CPU, GPU, Memory, and PSU available to no later than two years or so.

Such is the speed of technology these days. In fact, I'm running some pretty potent hardware and fly FSX at 5GHz CPU speeds and yet, it's really about time to rebuild the system to the latest stuff. It's expensive, so I sell one of my systems and then build a new one with only a few hundred dollars to add.
FWIW

So, it's been almost a year since my post looking for the shockwave light configs for the Manfred Jahn Douglas C-117D model. I ended up biting the bullet and attempting to do it myself. I believe I have succeeded in case anyone is interested! :)

My apologies for posting on such an old thread but the 3rd Party Aircraft Configuration Database page for FSX no longer appears to contain anything! Does this page still exist?

Hi Lewis,

Many thanks for that - will save me having to 'reinvent the wheel' for some of my addon aircraft at least!
