A Pitch Black Cockpit ?

Postby alaaar » Sun Dec 09, 2018 1:19 pm

Dear LM,

After two week with P3D V4.4 before that with FSX for more than 10 years I would like to thank you, it's a great effort and huge difference in FS.......worth every penny that's for sure.

Last night for the first time, I was starting a night flight form KMSP to KORD, I always start my flights at C&D situation and the cockpit was a pitch black I could not see a thing at all no matter what I do.

The second issue, I was at cruise level of 25,000 feet and looking outside the cockpit or looking from external view to the ground again it's pitch black I can't see lights of a small or large cities or roads or any topography except for exceptionally bright stars and dark areas where clouds are.

I was suggesting for the first issue is to have an option like a flashlight, like the ones usually with a ground maintenance person or a crew member to use when entering dark cockpit like this it will be very realistic.

Many thanks

Moon phases are now accounted for in night lighting. Do you see different levels of ambient light at night on different days? Are the missing lights happening with add-on content?
