    Hi guys! I need to implement a dashboard with LEDs like this:

    Is anyone experienced with such thing?
    I've already tried to unpack tatuusfa1 model and recreate the same hierarchy with dummys and correct names on digital_instruments.ini but I can't make it work.

    I did not create any myself. Maybe @garyjpaterson in his Feruccio ?

    First, you need the names of the 3D objects you want to bring to light from the KN5 for the Object_Name. To do that you need to open it with the trial version of 3dSim.
    There you look into the list Object_by_Name until you have found your object, which should shine later, and remember the name.

    in the Digital_instruments.ini:

    Then there is the possibility to always light a lamp:
    (A headlight)

    [LED_0]
    OBJECT_NAME = FRONT_LIGHT_BULB_L
    Emissive = 70,60,50
    DIFFUSE = 1

    Or speed or RPM dependent: (the flashing lights of the Ford Mustang Police Mod)
    [LED_0]
    OBJECT_NAME = led_1_
    RPM_SWITCH = 1900
    BLINK_SWITCH = 1950
    BLINK_HZ = 3
    Emissive = 0,0,5000
    DIFFUSE = 1
