Progressive Taxi light not functioning

Recommended Posts

More times than not when I attempt to fly a FSX PMDG737 flight the path does not light up. Is there a switch or something not set. Some times it works

Some of the airports FSDT produces aren't able to display the progressive taxi line due to the way they use shaders for the ground textures. Possible that some other 3rd party airports progressive taxi lines might not work due to the way they are designed. If it's default airports then it's hard to say unless your using DX10 preview that I think might cause issues in the lines showing up.

 

 

You might have to download airport charts and use them to find your way around.

Have you tried panning around in external view to see if the progressive taxi arrows show up again? If you are using DX10 preview might I suggest you look at investing in Steve's DX10 Fixer?

What airport?

Using DX10 Preview mode?

You need to give more details.

Airport  Kphx

DX 11

 

This function has worked previously.

Default KPHX or FlightBeam KPHX?

FSX and FSX-SE have no DX11. They either run in DX9 or using DX10 Preview mode if you select it. As mentioned in one of the earlier posts, if you're using DX10 Preview mode are you using the DX10 fixer?

Worst case scenario, if you can't get the taxi path to show up you could either just download the chart for the airport and use it to find your way around or get GSX and use the Follow Me car as a guide.
