They do seem a bit dim - I had to turn on the landing lights just to see the taxiway. I thought maybe thats just the way the real 747 is... will see what PMDG says.

I think maybe this is an effect of ground splash enabled in the simulator to get these lights illuminating the ground. Remember, when flying in the actual aircraft, these taxi lights are not supposed to blind other pilots.

You are correct, but on mine, even the landing lights look like they would not do that! I may have a play with the settings later to see if anything there makes a difference.

 

(I have read the entire manual and set up P3D as suggested)

I have been looking at our lights and they are appearing fine on the ground at most airports.

 

It is very difficult to find a middle ground with the landing light splash, you don't want it too bright where it works fine at some add-on airports but on others, it gets overblown and if it is toned down where it is just right, it gets a little dim at other airports.

 

I have almost all of the popular third party airport add-ons and the lights are working just fine, including Flightbeam KSFO as an example.

 

Additionally, if you are using PTA, sky texture enhancements, ENB, REshade etc, we cannot possibly come up with a combination that covers every single enhancement out there. I have noticed some of those enhancements darken the nighttime effect on the environment and that would have had an effect on the lights.

 

The lights are calibrated for an expected average environment and not specific addons for reasons of practicality.

I think the Flightbeam KSFO has a brighter landing light splash than the FSDT airports, which are very bad with this effect.  Taxi lights at KIAH almost nonexistent.  I just double checked with the 747-400v3 and I had splashes from all lights including navs.

Problem IS PTA preset if I disable PTA It works but the funny things is that 777 and 737 lights work with PTA preset ..... need a solution cause PTA preset is a must for me... hope PMDG or Pedrag could help

Just had my first leg, FSX Acceleration DVD version, taxi/landinglights didn't illuminate anything, while the bulbs themselves showed as lit in spot. Both airports were foggy, so I did check with ASN off and CAVOK in order to eliminate the lowvis-bug I've seen in some aircraft when it comes to landing lights. This was only one flight, though, no restarts or testing. The 777's lights has worked previously on both airports.

Similar issue here but with FSX Acceleration. The difference is the 747 v3 and 777 has too bright landing lights I guess non real.

I posted my question about but no help yet.

 

Any ideas how to make landing lights as 747 v2 and Level-D does in FSX?
