Making flying at night time more realistic?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how to make night flying on FSX more realistic as far as how dark it is outside. The cockpit lighting is okay, but I feel like outside should be a lot more dark, almost to the point of not being able to see clouds. I do have a ENB, not sure if that has something to do with it.

Try using EMB Series, some of the profiles look pretty good at night and you can manually adjust the settings in the ini file to suit your own system and monitor.

Try flying when there is a new moon.  I suspect that FSX overdoes the light coming from the moon.  Also, I use the Orbx light configurator for Global and have them turned down to the smallest, dimmest.  I still think at least the neighborhood lights are much too bright, but it's better.

I found nighttime to be much more realistic in FSX after switching to DX10 using Steve's fixer.  The sky and ground was much darker, especially with no moon out.  Add in UTX v2.0 night lights and I am loving night flying now.  I could never find a solution otherwise as it always drove me crazy how bright it was at night.
