Trying to solve my NGX night lighting issue

Recommended Posts

I understand from the forums that the night lighting (taxi and landing lights) are of the type that illuminate the scenery, far superior to how the default FSX aircraft work. It does not appear to be the case for me. My NGX lighting is no better than default. It works but is certainly nothing special.

 

I do have REX Essential+ installed and in the past I did change the setting for aircraft lights in that program (you can adjust for different types of lighting). Could this have caused the problem?

 

I also use ASN but running the sim without starting ASN and then setting the sim to clear all weather does not make any difference.

 

Any thoughts on this most welcome. I do not use any lighting or shader mod and never have. Also, edits to my cfg are minimal, just the mainstream ones.

Greg, a screenshot would help us see what you're seeing, and we can tell you if it's working or not.

There's a bug (i think FSX related) that will revert the lights to default FSX lights if visibility is anything under unlimited.

Even with via unlimited it does not seem right to me. My kids have FSX with Airbus X installed on their computers and I always look at those taxi and landing lights with envy. I also heard that there might be a bug that causes this but I am sure that very few NGX owners will be flying with unlimited visibility set. Most NGX users are probably running some sort of weather program, or at least using FSX own weather engine not set to unlimited?

 

Will post some screenshots as soon as I am back by my PC in a couple hours.
