If you don't want to disable the default generic aviation traffic, you can use AIFP to open the default traffic bgl to delete the default airliner traffics

How did you get around the ModelDef.xml, its asking to update a path to that but there isn't a ModelDef.xml file - not that I could find it..
I can't seem to export without it

Do you export as fsx model? You need fsx sdk for this.

There is maybe a solution for the black lightsplash not to show. As per the original "readme.txt" you can disable it by enabling dynamic lighting in the fuel section. According to the developer (Erez Werber) :

"The "off" state of logo, cabin and navigation lights is now set using the aircraft.cfg fuel section
enable a 1 gallon Center2 fuel tank to have logo lights remain always on.
enable a 1 gallon Center3 fuel tank to have cabin lights remain always on.
enable a 1 gallon External1 fuel tank to have navigation lights remain always on.

FSX/P3DV4 models now feature custom light splashes for landing and taxi lights.
You can switch between the dynamic lights and custom lights by adding or removing the "Center1" fuel tank in the aircraft.cfg."

If you are using the new configuration structure in "flightmodel.cfg" do this in the fuel section:

[FUEL]
;Remove Center1 fuel tank to disable dynamic lights and enable custom light splashes
Center1   = -41.400002, 0, -1.5, 1, 0     
;Uncomment Center2 to enable always on logo lights
;Center2   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0
;Uncomment Center3 to enable always on cabin lights   
;Center3   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0   
;Uncomment External1 to enable always on navigation lights 
;External1   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0     
LeftMain  = -9.7, -17.200001, -3.2, 50, 0
RightMain = -9.7, 17.200001, -3.2, 50, 0
fuel_type =2
number_of_tank_selectors =1                   
electric_pump=1
fuel_dump_rate =0.0167
engine_driven_pump=1
manual_transfer_pump=0
manual_pump=0
anemometer_pump=0
default_fuel_tank_selector=1

If you are using the old method, in the aircraft.cfg do this:

[FUEL]
// Remove Center1 fuel tank to disable dynamic lights and enable custom light splashes
Center1   = -41.400002, 0, -1.5, 1, 0     
// Uncomment Center2 to enable always on logo lights
//Center2   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0
// Uncomment Center3 to enable always on cabin lights   
//Center3   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0   
// Uncomment External1 to enable always on navigation lights 
//External1   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0     

Let me know if it works.

I have tried this with the FAIBA320 (old method config) and can see no positive change or effect.

With this \\ or this ;  for line exclusion?  I tried it just now with the new configuration and I put this:

[FUEL]
;Remove Center1 fuel tank to disable dynamic lights and enable custom light splashes
Center1   = -41.400002, 0, -1.5, 1, 0     
;Uncomment Center2 to enable always on logo lights
;Center2   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0
;Uncomment Center3 to enable always on cabin lights   
;Center3   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0   
;Uncomment External1 to enable always on navigation lights 
;External1   =  -41.4,   0.0, -1.5, 1.0, 0.0     

inside both "flight_model.cfg" and "aircraft.cfg" and I didn't see default light splashes. But I did not do extended tests. I think that MSFS does not read \\ either with the new or the old configuration.

First using the // to comment out (which must work because it appears to block functions other functions), but just now with ; (again using legacy)

I can tell you just initially, both ways still get the white splash issue for me.

ok. I will check again in case I did something else.

Interesting . . . totally forgot about this, thank you VAGVAG!
 
But please keep in mind: Already in FS2004, some sections of the config's have been ignored for AI traffic. That was at least station load and fuel, radio and such things . . .

But at some point during P3D there was suddenly a need for the radio section again. Otherwise planes wouldn't be able to contact tower for takeoff clearance (the place where everyone noticed the problem). When adding the radio section again, everything worked fine.

Yeah, if it works it will be nice. But either way this is an easy fix. Insert in mcx, delete light splashes in material editor export as again as fsx. The real problem is the flickering. The only way to eliminate until now is use a black lightmap and paint black the alpha channel of the t texture (in faib a32x) in the tail section. I am trying to find a way to avoid this without fixing a ton of textures. I can use a generic alpha for all textures to save time, but this means that all the aircraft will have the same domes and antennas (which by the way turn black with dynamic lighting at night) . Any ideas are welcome.

there is a strange thing:
on FAIB 783 there is no flickering, neither on TFS A333. (at least for me)
but yes...there is flickering onFAIB 320.

¿?

There is always the solution by a user I posted a couple of replies above.
MCX has problems with re-compiling wingflex, I tried it yesterday and the model made an origami in MSFS .

Yes, he used the NWF model.

to revisit this..where is the NWF models, never seen one specified as such.

Download model from faib site. It is there.

In the 738 the alpha channel has a different function. If you paint the alpha channel in the tail section, the tail disappears.
