Taxi light question

Recommended Posts

I made my landing at CDG at night with my beautiful Fedex livery, but when I turn on the taxi light, it doesn't seem to move with the nose wheel when I steer down taxiways. It stays shining forward like a landing light. 

 

Is this a bug? Or Or this how the taxi light is built on the real plane? It's kinda difficult seeing taxiway lines during turns when the light only shines forward.

 

Thanks

Another tip, if you want to see where you are going in turns, turn on the runway turnoff lights. I have seen them being used often on real 777s. Those lights are not just for turning off the runway after landing :-)

Usual taxi procedure for most heavies is taxi and runway turnoff lights go on when taxing. Especially in poor conditions and at night.
