That's just how it is I'm afraid! For default airports, and those where the lighting is from the AFCAD, you will only see the approach lights during dusk, night and dawn - regardless of the weather. In some add-on airports, the lights are always on if (i) you set a specific NAV1 frequency, like the ILS for that approach or (ii) the aircraft is within a certain distance of that runway.I also don't know why there is not any weather dependency in the lighting - we know it can be done because in AES there is the wet-runway texture in rain and some airports I have seen the textures will go white if it snows... Perhaps there is no variable for visibility that can be easily read externally... Geoff
