The range is very likely bigger than the distance between the light and the vehicle. Maybe estimating that from an onboard view of a night landing is a better ideia.
This from the HUD minicam of STS-115 which was a nightlanding: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8rk8juxlek...nding.jpg?dl=0

Based on some experiments, umbra angle seems to be around 7.8s.

Could the pad/crawler offset constants in the xenon light header be made scenario adjustable? This is so it be different in each instance of the xenon light vessel as shown in this screenshot of STS-135: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zzfzokqrzl...00581.png?dl=0

I added a random vertical offset to the xenon lights, so now they should not point to the same spot, but instead the light should be spread along the "vertical area" of the vehicle.

Side 1 nearly complete, just missing the left-most pallet for the LOX skid and the pallet for the LH2 skid:

Here's the latest work on Side 1 of the MLP. It now sports all the skid pallets with their supports as well as the Space Shuttle Fuel Cell (SSFC) systems cabinets. The GO2 SSFC cabinet is by the LH2 skid on the top center platform while the GH2 SSFC cabinet is by the OTV camera on the left platform by the LOX skid.

Side 1 platforms about done. Next up is miscellaneous details such as lights and missing details on the LOX/LH2 pipes. Then I'll begin work on Side 2 with the pipe supports for the LOX pipes.

Latest work on Side 2 of the MLP, now with the LOX pipe supports and brand new 9099 Interface panels. The texture for those are still being worked on.

Not much modelling the last couple of days. Instead the work has focused on finishing up the textures. All the photogrammetry targets (the checkerboard squares) are now present and in their correct locations:
