Hi Mike

 

From your earlier posting, I see you are using MEgascnery Florida V4. since this is photo scenery how would Black marble work here?  Its only Night environment that would work..right?

 

2) IF you are not using the MEgascenry FL. Why would you use Night Environment in addition to black marble? Does  NE add to Black marble? Doesn't black marble and MB Vector take care of all the lights?

Hi Manny,

I don't run mega anymore, I've installed the Orbx global collection. I run both sets of lights for the following reason.

Night Environment's lights are library object lights, library objects extend farther than Landclass objects; but they lack the flexibility of landclass objects. Night Environment runs Library Object type lighting with their own custom photo real ground splash textures.

Night Environment splash textures are photo real textures designed to blend over a photo real sets, so the day and night layers act the same in that they both block Landclass Autogen Objects. So by disabling Night Environment's splash textures "only", I still keep the Library Object lighting active and this allows Landcalss objects to show.

Now I use Black Marble to give me worldwide road vector data along with ground splash textures and when I use this combination, it allows all the landclass and all autogen objects to come through and be part of the scenery. So now I have Night Environment style lighting instead of the much more restricted Landclass lighting that's restricted to P3D's radius.

 

The end result can be found in my photos and videos.

1 More Q. How do you disable only the textures of NE?

Hi Manny,

 

On the NE GUI you will see a slider (on the bottom) that says Night Texture Splash Map, turn that off.

Hi Manny,

Here is how I have NE Setup. All I run in NE is Volumetric lighting and orange lights at 100% or 50% if the draw is too much. Uncheck Night Texture Splash Map and you're done in NE, load up Black Marble and you should have both lights working. Just make sure you turn off Orbx lighting if it has not been done already, check your scenery config and make sure all orbx light entries are unchecked.
