Hi All,

Can somebody please confirm that in the daytime on FS9 you will only get the approach lighting and no runway lights or taxiway lights even in poor viz.
I think it may have something to do with FS9`s engine and that Gary`s wonderful runway lighting won`t work during daytime.

Thanks

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan..

I've just checked and there are no runway or taxiway lights in daytime during poor viz. I cranked it down to 1/4 mile and still saw nothing. Like you, I'd have thought they'd have shown.

EDIT: I've also checked Aberdeen, East Midlands and Prestwick. Prestwick has them.. neither of the other 2 do so it's not an 'FS9' thing. One for the boss me thinks Grin

EDIT#2.. None at Humberside, Manchester or Stansted either!!

There is no mechanism to detect bad weather.  The only system that can do that is default lighting, but people prefer my addon lights to default lights.

Rgr that Gary Wink

I have to say that the lights at Prestwick look ok. The taxiway blues aren't particularly easy to see but they're on and functional. I think I'd cranked viz down to 1/16mile by this time and you could barely see your hand in front of your face. Doubt I'd have seen a 'Follow Me' truck in reality Grin

Still.. now we know Wink
