Thanks! But what exactly is black marble? Is it a global night lighting system? If so how will it work with ftx vector? will the 2 conflict? Will wait and see more reviews, but I'm interested in the product.

Hrmmm, so black marble is a global night lighting addon. Its what Taburet night lights is but on a global scale right? How's the coverage for other parts of the world, such as Asia? Is it pretty accurate?

Their website will explain it. Yes its global and when I asked the question about ORBX vector the dev said no conflict, you can turn ORBX vector off but I dont know if that means that I need to turn ORBX vector off before using black marble or what.

Yes, that's a question I wonder, too. What will happen if I use UTXv2 with all roads and UTX lights? :unsure:

It replaces the default nightlighting system and looks way better. All lights are configurable.

Vector makes all roads in the world visible at their correct places.

Traffic adds car traffic. All car lights are configurable.

It is not compatible with FTX or UTX lighting. And it looks much better and more realistic.

OK, in case of using UTXv2 I would need to disable UTXv2 lights completely and all roads within the UTX interface?

K seems from reading their product page that its pretty much a complete vector replacement, including road networks, etc. So I guess there's no use for OrbX Vector if one decides to use blackmarble?

Hi Aaron,

Yes it is.

I did not have time yet to test it on a long flight or different areas (only Vancouver CYVR and Kennedy KJFK  areas. I downloaded and installed Black Marble Base this morning.

But it looks great  and accurate around New York City area and Vancouver areaduring night.

I am waiting for Black Marble Vector, bridges and traffic add on packets, those are not released yet (will be released today)

So far i am realy happy, i see no remarkable impact on FPS (set at 30 FPS limited), and P3D V4 is running smooth.

Download & installation Black Marble Base without any problems, I used the standard configuration file as suplied.

Regards Jac

I'd love to see a comparison between Black Marble lighting and Vector lighting.
