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...

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.

Thanks!

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.
