About This File

The Las Vegas Luxor casino light beam that's so bright pilots use it to navigate, yet for some reason X-Plane default scenery didn't offer this feature. This project is considered a "mod" or modification for the default "X-Plane Landmarks - Las Vegas" scenery by Laminar Research and optional support for users who have converted their P3D FlyTampa - Vegas Scenery.
The Luxor Sky Beam, a 42.3 billion candela tunnel of light - the strongest in the world - that shines exactly vertical from the 39 xenon lamps on top of the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. On a clear night, the Sky Beam, which has shone continuously into the Nevada sky since 1993, is visible from 275 miles away by aircraft at cruising altitude, such as over Los Angeles, a five-hour drive away.
The beam’s 39 lamps are each 7,000 watt and cost $51 an hour to run. A navigational point for pilots (think: turn left before the Luxor Sky Beam).
- 4K Textured Light Beam Object.
- Shining well over 120k feet into the sky.
- Visible during Dawn, Dusk & Night time with standard night lighting.
- Precision Placement above the Luxor Casino.
- Extended LOD distance for viewing from far distances.
- Optional Support for FlyTampa - Vegas Converted Scenery.
