Has anyone figured a technique to figure out if the TAIL light is ON?

Taken from Lekseecon SIOC version:

Quote Note: The TAIL SKID Light is not in the Level-D (/SDK). It is added by lekseecon. It’s ON in two cases:

- IF Gear Lever is in Down position AND center hydraulic pressure is lower than 2500psi AND the Alternate Gear extend was used, or

- IF set via a Instructor Station variable (section 0).

But that logic doesn't really make sense to me.  I was able to determine when the Leading and Trailing Edge lights are on, but I have no clue how to trap this one.

Look what I found at top of page 4.

"1.6.1
...
The aircraft's tail skid will contact the runway when the aircraft has a 10° body attitude with the main landing gear oleos extended. Tail skid contact will occur at a body attitude of 8° if the main landing gear oleos are compressed."

It's a tail-strike report for a BOEING 767-375 (C-FOCA) at Halifax.

The Level-D is a 767-300ER and C-FOCA is listed on the Air Canada site as a 767-300ER.

My off-the-top-of-my-head guess would be:

a) 8° body attitude limit while within a set range of feet from ground, maybe 1 to 5 feet.  Don't even know yet if we can determine this value (still new at this stuff).

b) 10° body attitude limit while "on-ground".

The only complication I can think of is the slope of the runway (no clue yet if we have that in FS-X).

Does that seem reasonable?
