[pkg-fgfs-crew] Bug#751847: flightgear: Seneca II interior lighting

Package: flightgear
Version: 3.0.0-1
Severity: minor


In the cockpit of the Seneca II, the overhead light switch is
insensitive to the mouse and not highlighted by Ctrl+C.  However, one
can turn cockpit lighting on by going to the property browser (in
Debug menu) and setting the property /controls/lighting/panel-norm
to a value larger than 0; in this case the button actually rotates
like a dimmer would, when this button clearly looks like an on-off
switch with no intermediate values possible.

A slightly more serious issue is that, even with
/controls/lighting/panel-norm set to 1 (the maximum), the cockpit
remains entirely dark, i.e. the overhead lights are useless.  It
would be nice if these lights actually allowed seeing the controls
that don't have a backlight, i.e. throttle, RPM, mixture, etc.
Such lighting would make it easier to find the instrument lighting
dimmer in the dark :)

See http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Lightmap for what I mean.
