Dynamic lights not showing up on arrival

Post by Profs_72 »

So... I am currently having a problem with multiple airports from multiple developers and publishers so I've concluded that it is most likely something with P3D. That or I've seriously broken something somehow haha. On arrival, the dynamic lights from airports are off. Its really irritating to land and the airport is pitch black. Anyone know of a solution or something I could try?

Have you checked with the developers support forums?
I tried to contact ORBX but I haven't received a response and since I had the same issue with another developer, I thought it was probably best that I come here.
Have you searched this forum?
I did but I could not find any solutions that helped me.

@ Profs_72
Have you checked with the developers "support forums" where users can reply?

This bug happens to me all the time at a variety of airports. Pretty sure it's just a consequence of P3D's abysmal lighting engine.

@ Profs_72 ,

It has been awhile since I flew into LOWI (daytime visual) so I may get the plates out and do a night flight.

General flight information:
Which aircraft are you using on your night flight into LOWI (Orbx)?

Departure airport?

STAR?

Which approach / approach plate and landing runway?

Aerosoft A320.

Departure airport?
For my last route, ORBX EGGD.
But it does the same when departing Simwings EGLL.
It also does the same on arrival into EGGD from LOWI.

STAR?
TULSI3A


Which approach / approach plate and landing runway?
LOC R RWY 26

Probably not the correct procedure I just bought it and Im gonna have to have a read up on it haha. Doesnt matter too much since I fly offline anyway
