Well, night, but ONLY if the panel night lighting (flood & gauge lighting etc....) is REALLY damn good. :DEtienne :-wave

I prefer day. Looking around outside the VC is one of my favorite things, and it's just not as full to me when you can't see much outside. I do like flying dawn/dusk time though.

Night time, I love watching the lighting. The airport lit up, cities lit up. Wow, its beautiful.

What night lighting do you use sidewinder? In fs2002 at night, all I get is a smudged yellow texture, which I think represents the lighting of a city! Nothing compared to what I experience in real life...loads of little bright yellow lights, highligiting the streets, so detailed...FS2002 spoils the realism I think!I have tried the FSW textures, a bit better, but street lights look more like tennis courts from the air!

I prefer flying in daylight, since the landing lights don't allow me to see the taxiways from cockpit view. I also like dawn and dusk. Maybe in FS2004.

Well, I prefer to fly during the day because you can see a lot more (FS2k2's night lighting is kind of dark.) Though, I like to fly at night because my FPS are quite a bit better and night flying is always a completely different experience than flying during the day. So I'd have to see I do both about 50-50. :-)Ryan-Flightpro08 :-cool VATSIM Pilot/ControllerZLA ARTCC Controller 1 (C-1)SAN TRACON Lead [link:www.taxiwaysigns.com]Taxiwaysigns.com Scenery Designerhttp://members.cox.net/santracon/images/san_logo.jpg-----------------------------My "Home Made" System Specs:Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz ProcessorTurbo Gamer ATX Mid-Tower with 420W Power SupplyEPoX 4G4A Motherboard with Intel 845G ChipsetVisiontek XTASY GeForce4 128MB Ti4600 (Det 30.30 Drivers)512MB PC2100 DDR RAM40GB Matrox 7200RPM Hard DriveWindows XP Home Edition SP1*No CPU or GPU Overclocking*3dMark2001SE Score: 11298

LAdamson, those shots are amazing! I've never seen night lighting so good. Which pack are you using? What's your specs? and how do you get the night lights so detailed?!
