P3D v4 Landing/Taxi Lights

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue in P3D v4 with the 777 where the landing lights are not illuminating the ground with Dynamic lighting turned off. I have no issues with Dynamic lighting on but my frames are not high enough to have DL turned on. Is anyone else noticing this issue? Any solutions? Thought I'd try here first before opening a ticket.

Open a ticket and request legacy support. The planes only have support for dynamic lighting at the moment, a feature which isn't fully fleshed out yet.

Not an issue, it’s like that by design.

Ah gotcha. Honestly not the end of the world. I'm not running anything stellar in terms of computer hardware so I'll take no ooms and 4K textures at 30fps over being able to see the lights illuminate the ground.

Thank you.

Thank you.

If you run SSAA, changing to MSAA will give you a boost in FPS.

I was running 4xMSAA already and seeing only 15-20 FPS with DL turned on LAX with FSDT's LAX and Orbx SoCal in the 777 but 25-30 FPS with it off. I'm only running a GTX 960 so I fear its more of a hardware limitation than anything. Going to try and tinker with the settings. Thank you for your help, Chris.
