Night Lighting

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any success in getting night lighting to look better, particularly at high altitude?  On a clear night at cruise, I just see black in front of me.  I'd think i'd be able to see some sort of lighting.  Thanks!

I tend to notice at low altitude, the lights pop up close to around my aircraft, and in the distant they are very dim.  Once they pop up, they shimmer and glitter and don’t seem very realistic.  Any tips?  My specs are below and my settings are slightly left of what is on Livecockpits site.  Any help would be appreciated as I tend to fly mostly at night. 


Additionally, anyone have any success in getting rid of the glittery, shimmery runway and taxiway textures that I get with all FSDT at night?  Thanks!

Are you talking about default scenery or a 3rd party scenery?  I take it a 3rd party as you say lights pop up close to you?  Screenies might help.

this seems to happen with 3rd party mostly as I haven’t used default in a while.  I don’t have screenshots right now but might be able to get some later.  When getting close to a Chicago as an example,  once the lights populate, they almost appear as though they are mining or flowing in a direction of that makes sense.
