Flight Files; Interior Lights Potentiometer Settings Idea

Hello Team Asobo and Flying Raccoon!

I have an idea. On planes 'Flight files' (such as runway.flt, approach.flt, etc) .... What if.. you could set interior lights (that have Potentiometers/dimmers) to have a percentage setting instead of true/false? For instance, set it to .50, or .25, instead of True. Then the cabin light, for instance would be dimmed to 50% instead of a crazy full bright. The glareshield could be set to 25 percent instead of full brightness for a night time approach in an airliner, etc.

Perhaps set it up (if you did this) so it could go True/False 'also'. A secondary way to write them, so its flexible. True, False, and .XX It could also be just one decimal, such as .1 for 10 percent, .7 for 70 percent.

A humble idea for a cool feature for an AH MAY ZEEN simulator....
