single Light Unit request


Recommended Posts

Hi, i would be great if we could get a single powered light for the Mission Editor as a unit.

 

A great option would be the "Bartow Beacon"

These were small portable lights used to light runways.

 

 

"WW2 Line Material Co. Bartow HILV (high intensity, low visability) runway approach beacon"

Having a single-point lamp would be a very useful addition to DCS, especially if triggers could be used to create/destroy them. These are really small, so there would be no need to switch them on/off (although that would be nice), merely creating/deleting them would be sufficient to mark out the runway/taxi way.

 

They would also be very useful for non-WW2 too. They could be used to mark test target areas, cargo drop points for helicopters, or even linked to a ship to give them lighting, even if they don't have any.

 

 

In any case, this is a great idea, it would add a lot to the DCS environment, and it does not seem like a complicated model to make.
