Simobjects receive no lightning

Postby Felix961 » Sun Jan 26, 2020 4:32 pm

Hello everybody

I recently noticed something bad in my sim. On some Airports (for example Orbx LDDU, FlyTampa EHAM), all Simobjects (My planes but also for example GSX vehicles) appear to be completely dark when i set the time to night (See the Pictures). The textures are there but they just don't receive any lightning from the floodlight on the airport. Also, No light comes to the inside of the cockpit. It only doesn't work on some airports (For example no problems in Aerosoft LSZH).

Has anyone an idea what the problem could be and how i could solve it ?

It happens to PBR-Planes as well as non-PBR-Planes. The problem also occurs with Tomatoshade enabled and disabled. I have dynamic lightning and HDR lightnind set to On in the settings.

Pictures: ... humRa?dl=0

Best regards

Same problem here. It happens in all airports, default or not.

I performed a complete reinstall deleting also all P3D system folders but nothing changed. Two days ago all was perfect, yesterday no more night lighting.

Did you manage to solve the issue?
