Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

As for the nav lights issue with the PMDG 737, I looked into it on the NGX forum on Avsim and was told that it is normal. They said that P3D v4 uses a different type of lighting that does not use textures to simulate light, unlike the older versions and FSX.

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

Yes, that was the SPAI that I had previously used. I believe it was designed for v4 but not specifically for v4.3. As for the tests I've done at KONT, I first noticed the issue with a freeware addon but the recent tests have just been with the default scenery. However, I tested at a few other local ...

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

I have just reinstalled the sim yet again following the steps but the issue still occurs. I don't have any P3D addons remaining on my PC, I ran the uninstaller, deleted the 6 files and folders, re downloaded P3D, verified the download, turned off the notifications for UAC, restarted my PC, turned of...

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

Yes, by commercial aviation, I meant airline traffic. As for addons, I used to have Ultimate Traffic Live and SPAI for traffic, TomatoShade, Orbx Global, and a few airport addons for KLAX, KSNA, and KONT. However, nothing is installed at the moment. For hardware, I've got a i7 7700K, 16GB of RAM, an...

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

Hi Brady, Thanks for the reply! Just to clarify a little bit more, the issue seems to occur only at certain airports, KONT, for example. It also seems to happen only on certain runways as well. At KONT, the issue appears on runway 26R but on the other end, on 8L, the landing lights appear like norma...

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

So I completed a complete reinstall and have not put any addons into the sim. The first time I loaded it, the lights appeared as they should. I then went into my settings after restarting the sim and changed things to how I had them before I uninstalled. Then, I loaded up again and the issue reappea...

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

Alright, I ran through the debugging steps and updated graphics drivers, updated Windows, deleted the files that were listed, and even removed the 737 but the issue still persists.

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

Strange. Could I take a look at your lighting settings? Also, I'm not sure if this would affect the lighting in any way but I used to have tomatoshade, SPAI (wanted effects replaced), and Orbx installed previously. Perhaps I missed a file that was causing the issue when uninstalling P3D?

Re: Aircraft Lighting Problems

Hi Vaughan,

I did not check with PMDG about the landing lights as it seems happens with all aircraft but I will with the strange nav lights.

Aircraft Lighting Problems

I've posted these issues before a while back but still have not gotten a solution. In 4.3, landing lights will disappear at certain eye points when moving the view. This seems to occur with multiple aircraft but only at certain airports in Southern California for some reason. For example, KONT. Desp...

Re: Avoiding The Default Flight Planner

Thanks, this looks somewhat like what I had in mind. However when trying to open the newly created .pln file in the P3D flight planner, it clears all of the waypoints and VORs I had selected and make it a direct flight plan. Does this happen for everyone or is it just me?

Re: Aircraft Lighting Issue

Do you know what could be causing these issues? If not, perhaps I should just try reinstalling some of the P3D components.

Re: Aircraft Lighting Issue

I haven't gone to PMDG yet as the issue occurs with AI aircraft and other user aircraft as well as the PMDG 737. Here are the overly bright nav lights on the PMDG 737: https://i.imgur.com/MvzRnNq.png And the landing lights flickering. In this image, the switches can be seen in the on position but th...

Re: Avoiding The Default Flight Planner

Well, ATC is not really an issue, perhaps mentioning it may have been a little bit confusing. The default flight planner is the only issue. Back in FSX I used the default planner and input those fixes into the FMC of the 737. Upon looking at the other topic you linked, I am having quite similar issu...

Re: Avoiding The Default Flight Planner

I would like to find either a way to troubleshoot the issues with the default flight planner or a 3rd party flight planner (preferably free) that can be used with the default ATC inside of P3D. I fly various payware aircraft, PMDG planes for example, and the route you input to the FMC must sync for ...
