Default instrument lights

Hi,


Just bought the yak 52. Where can I find the instrument lights switch. Are these even modelled?


Like the plane so far but might return it on steam if it has no lights....


Thanks jozeff

I was desperately searching for the "instruments lighting" command, now I understand why I didn't find any. The absence of cockpit lighting might not be a problem in the real thing. In the sim, depending on where the sun is, I find it sometimes difficult to read the instruments. And then, after flying a 90 degree turn suddenly everything is very visible. Realistic or not, we should have a cheat option to brighten up the cockpit.

I'm flying it in free trial, so I won't complain. But as-is, I won't buy it. Too hard on my old eyes.

The Yak-52 does have a finger tip light, so you can light up what you point the mouse at. Default control is Left Alt - L - I believe
