I'm getting the same and I never installed the HotFix. Happened last night at EDDH on Dusk. No external fwd view lights at all in VC, I didn't check 2d as I never go in there...

If I remember correctly, someone else posted this, you might want to look it up to check if they had solutions.

I see- thanks.As Vin said, they don't show up until a FSX specified time I believe. FSX limitation, not the NGX. I think the runway/taxiway lights are on the same timer. If you can't see airport lights, then you can't see landing lights.

Ok, let's get this out of the way: Are the airport lights illuminated? If they aren't, then you can't see taxi/landing lights. Simple as that. I have experienced no abnormal lighting behavior...

The lighting in this aircraft is quite complex, and frankly, beyond the capabilities of FSX to render in all conditions and time-of-day. We'll take a look at it for SP1, though, and see if we can tweak it to come on a bit earlier.

It's not happening to everyone, but it happens to a handful like yourself. We should be able to get to the bottom of it and get it cleaned up.

I've found this from some time ago... (2007) May be of some use. I'm not sure if it applies to external lights as much as it does to ambient light. It's worth a shot though.

For the dusk/dawn textures some people feel, subjectively, the result is too dark or too light. There are 2 items that allow the transition time to be changed: [GRAPHICS]DAY_THRESHOLDNIGHT_THRESHOLD acceptible values are 0 to 65535. Defaults:DAY: 32768NIGHT: 4096These represent the amount of 'ambient' light at the ends of the day/night blend threshold. Zero is perfect dark, 65535 is full day sun at noon in the summer.

Ah some more of my good luck, dam thanks Vin
Oh wait....i'm replying to too many different posts! This is about VC landing lights <vin slaps himself in the head and reaches for the coffee pot> Disregard my last answer. It happens to EVERYONE.. not just you, but we will try to tweak it for a future service pack.
