Red/orange city texture/lights at night

Recommended Posts

I usually don't do night flights as I really enjoy the daytime scenery. Today, decided to do a predawn departure. 

The city textures/lighting is dark orange/red everywhere. Looks like Halloween!

Does anyone know why?

 

FYI, I have all of the ORBX products installed, if that helps.

Hi, There should be a control panel for ORBX lights, if you have that installed. It's part of their "Freeware" offerings.

You can select different tones and size, brightness etc of the lights, you might be able to change things in there, have a look!

Depends where you are in the world, that's actually the colour the street lights are in the UK in most places for example, since they are mostly sodium vapour lights in the UK

after a closer look, its definitely the texture that is this red/orange color. The lights themselves are fine.

This usually boils down to a combination of monitor settings, shaders and HDR.  Do you have the PTA shader tool installed?  There is a setting in that where you can adjust the night textures to your liking.  If you don't have PTA, you can mess with your HDR settings.  High saturation settings will make the lights very orange.

Ah, didn't think of this. I have tomato shade.

Think tomato has some recommendations for the orbx lights configuration.
