Drag and Drop

Red Flashlight Mod by Nerbulus, converted to drag+drop by HIGHMEMFIX1 on the forums at forums.flightsimulator.com

Notice: The original file is by Asobo and Microsoft, I do not take ownership of their original file in any way.


This mod changes JUST your flashlight (left Alt+L) to the more accurate red instead of white. 

This is because real pilots IRL use red headlights that don't interfere with glare and also they don't have to adjust their eyes to a bright light.



Now supports drag+drop thanks to HIGHMEMFIX1 on the forums!

Copy the folder "effects-redflashlight-nerbulus" to your Community folder and you're all set!


To uninstall, delete the folder from your community folder.


I hope you enjoy! Turn on your flashlight at night be pressing left Alt+L (by default). If you custom binded this function then only you know which key you bound it to.

    I have unzipped into my community folder (in MSFS) but cannot see a red light just the normal white light. Do I need to set anything else up?

      Did you get this to work?
      You can't just unzip the downloaded file to the community folder as there's a sub-folder called "effects-redflashlight-nerbulus" that you need to copy to your Community folder then you're all set!

      Eureka! Thanks for reply.
      It is now working in sim, I have been using the MOD manager which didn't work for your file. I have had one other download ( a livery) a while back which was the same. Anyway it is now working and has made a great differnce to my night flying. Brilliant.

      I believe there are other mods on nexusmods.com to change the panel color to black, for example.

    Nice mod but unfortuneatly it sometimes doesn't work, especially now with the new update in planes like the cj4.

    Was an error while loading the mods not caused by this mod. Works fine now.

    Thank you. But I dont like, that it replace original game files, so I wrote it standalone to use it in my community folder. 😊

      That's great! If you don't mind sharing, how did you reconfigure it? I will gladly update it to make it drag+drop!

    Excellent. Thanks. Just a note though, I found my DDS file under this directory: \Official\OneStore\fs-base-effects\effects\texture

    Very cool of you to bring a "realism" mod to the sim, keep these up!
