Bright lights, big city!

Recommended Posts

Just bought & installed the excellent IMHO Black Marble for FSX:SE. I'd made a cargo flight from KSTL recently in the daytime, & seeing as my USA is devoid of photoreal scenery for the most part, where better to check out the new effects. NOTE this is the Base software which uses native sim data only. The Vector add on injects all the real world roads into the sim! Anyhow, for those of use who haven't bought Vector yet - here's the the native FSX. You can tweak loads of parameters for the lights - I can get the FPS into single figures by overdoing it!

Great looking nite lighting but the center of the city should have a beaming glow lighting up the sky!

Thanks!

It is true what you say about a beaming glow - but I'm guessing that would be outside the capabilities of the sim - trying to make some kind of massive,  volumetric, atmospheric lighting effect. Most cities have that in real life, I know. It would be amazing in hazy conditions though! The Black Marble lights can be volumetric incidentally.

Black Marble's rather good at what it does. Head on over to the website for a look. What it cannot do, I believe,  is work on top of photoreal scenery. That's where the Night Environment add-ons come in handy
