B717 Exterior Lights Non-Existent P3Dv4



Hey guys,


I have been stuck with this problem for months. My 717 has errors with all external lighting during both the daytime and night time.


Landing lights:

They are far too dim and are basically unusable during night time landings, as it barely illuminates the ground.

Inspection lights:

They are not pointing down the wing at all, as they used to once upon a time when I initially purchased the product back in 2020.

Nav/strobe lights:

They are working in terms of visually seeing them turn off and on, but they are barely visible and its as though it is not finding the .fx files (both images have ALL lights turned ON).

Taxi lights/beacon lights:

They are the only lights that are working correctly as far as I can see.


I have tried everything within my sim (uninstalling and wiping the P3D folder) and uninstalling/reinstalling the product, and even went as far as buying and installing the 717 Immersion pack to see if it fixes the problem; which it doesn't (it basically overlaps the lights on the airplane). I love flying this plane. It's the best hand-flying payware plane I've ever purchased and its a shame the lights are not working. I would really appreciate help on this one.
