Runway and approach lights during day

Recommended Posts

FS9 turns the runway and approach lights automaticly on/off in dusk, night and low visiblity (<3nm) conditions.

But is it possible to switch these lights on/off during daylight conditions? And if so, how could it be done?

I did search the fs9 and scenery forums for an answer to this question but could'nt find a solution.

 

If I'm not mistaken, the Cloud9 scenery of Schiphol Amsterdam offered a possibility to switch on the runway lights by setting the second com receiver on a specific frequency. So it can be done.

 

I Appreciate tips and suggestions.

That's a question I've been asking for years.

 

Yes, it can be done (in some UK2000 sceneries lights are on the whole day) but it has to be hard coded in the scenery.

Thank you José for putting me on track.

Appears that I'll have to study how to edit the hard code in BGL files. Should be possible with all information in de scenery depatment of the forum. There I did found a way to make conditional lights in mdl files, but there are'nt any of these files in my fs9 secenery library. I'll continue searching...
