Night is dark, landing lights barely visible

Recommended Posts

Night is dark, landing lights barely visible. I have tried everything, and went through the steps of deleting shaders folder and letting sim rebuild it through repair (both shaders in P3D folder and APP data) and it is still too dark. I used PTA before and have a weird feeling that for some reason the shaders planted themselves in some corner and dont want to leave. After rebuilding shaders and setting PTA to all off, the night did lighten up but the landing lights are barely visible. I could not find anywhere on the internet default files for halo.bmp and spotlight.bmp so if anyone can provide theirs I will be thankful.

Not adjustable as I have been RGB mode for years now  :)  only thing I did is get new monitor, but I highly doubt switch from 1440p display to 1080p with HDMI would do any difference.

Although I highly doubt that will help, I will try it out once I get home! Thanks for the help! I'll keep you posted

You could try adjusting your Gamma.  Also, it can be important to create a balance between your monitor(s) and your card.

 

Best wishes.

I just watched a video of BETA tester landing 744 at night, his night textures are darker than mine and by a lot especially since i've restored the sim, but for some reason his landing lights are brighter than mine. I am debating whether runway texture has anything to do with this......

Just tried those options via remote desktop, no luck. Still runway is very well visible but landing lights just barely.

If you have REX you can choose your landinglights regarding brightness/contrast etc,

You need another halo texture...

 

You can also try setting your bloom higher. Or brightness + bloom.

Nothing really works. I tried varying lighting settings not much change. Runways, land lighten up but landing lights stay dim

If your runways have dark textures that affects the ability of landing lights to show on the ground. The lighter the runway the more light gets reflected.
