PMDG 747's lighting effect not showing on the ground

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am not seeing any lights of the PMDG 747 being thrown on the ground for P3D V4 even with Dynamic lighting on. The P3D v4 Carenado Bonaza's light is working ok. So far also tested PMDG 777 and lights are ok too. Only PMDG 747's lights on the ground not showing.

Anyone have similar problem? Please help. Thanks.

I just tested and I'm seeing light splashes etc.

However, last night I noticed no light splashes. I suspected the airport textures were the problem, since I had just installed the Envtex package; including the airport textures.

After removing the airport textures within the Envtex package, everything is back to normal.

TLDR;

Disable any runway textures you might have added and try again.

I have Rexdirect restore to default P3DV4 textures, but still no light splashes. So I am not sure if change of runway texture could cause the plane's light splashes to disappear.

The ground textures at KMEM do cause the light splashes to disappear and this has been acknowledged by FSDT.  However, of all I've tested this is the only one I have a problem and there the problem exists for default and addon aircraft.

I to am not seeing any lighting effects on the ground with V4 default and 3rd party airports - this is with the dynamic lighting switch set to off. I do see lighting on the ground with the default aircraft.

While I do see ground lighting with the dynamic switch on, this is not an option as the performance hit is too great.

Our aircraft require the dynamic lighting turned on.

This is the correct setting for that option. The performance hit is highly dependent on your settings.

Well that's not good news. Dumbing down my modest V4 system settings to accommodate the new 747 would be taking a step backwards with regard to the immersion qualities that I cannot compromise on -good thing I have V3.4, cuz I do love the aircraft.

Now are we going to see that same lighting approach with the 737 and, is it the same for the 777?

 

Thanks,

Any findings about no lights splashes even when dynamic lighting is on? My 747 is night grounded...lol

Some sort of issue on your computer, it seems, because everyone else has them working. Think of all of the possible mods you have in P3Dv4. What's on that list? Texture mods? Shader mods? Are you absolutely 100% sure you have dynamic lighting turned on? I know that sounds stupid, but I can't tell you how many times people write to us and say "I can see the liveries in FSX" and they swear they have the "show all variants" box checked. When I ask for a screenshot, sure enough, the box is unchecked.

Yes dynamic lighting is checked. I have installed Orbx HD Airport texture. Can a texture addon affect dynamic lighting? Just like a confirmation on this as all default planes light splashes not affected, only PMDG 747 affected.

My 747 FMC's "SPLASHES IN DAYLIGHT" option is not selectable. Is this normal? Please see link toscreencapture below..

Depends on what that texture mod is doing. I don't know how they are doing what they're doing. All I know is that they're modifying the sim in some way, and people without them have no issues, and some with them have issues.

Regardless: only a handful of people are seeing this issue, so my bet is that it is caused by settings on specific machines, and not our code/effects/etc.

Using aftermarket antivirus programs, perhaps?

Normal. If it's greyed out, it's that way for a reason. This is usually due to the simulator in use not utilizing/needing the function, or the aircraft in use does not use it (in the case of equipment options). For commonality, we don't change the prompts between sims so we don't have a ton of different code bases to support. We just grey the right ones out.
