Giant street lights (light balls) almost everywhere

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Recently I've been noticing these giant light balls or street lights during the night which didn't seem to appear before. I've already turned off Orbx Lights (or I think I have) via the executable file that resides inside the Orbx folder which is named ".............Day" but I've not noticed a change. Aside Orbx I use no other lights that I can recall of, and at SBGR (TropicalSim) this is so bad that it even happens INSIDE the airport, in the approns and some taxiways.

Does anyone have a cure or suggestion for getting this any better?

Thanks.


Best regards,

I couldn't get the giant balls to go away until I removed Orbx completely.

That may just be me though.

I have the same issue, and don't have UTX. I just fly in daylight, which is a pain

Same issue here. I am certain that these large floating balls of light are ORBx related, and I also seem to recall that I managed to get rid of them at one stage by removing a couple of files. However, I do not remember where those files are located!! I think that they returned when I uninstalled FTX Central 3 and installed the new ORBx Central. They must have been "reactivated" when I ran that for the first time :dry:

One of them is sitting right next to the runway at UK2000 Guernsey Xtreme :angry:

ORBx light tweaker is only available in the Global Base Pack, and there is no way that I am getting that just to be able to switch off the globe lights. I just need to find those two files that I disabled last time, but I do not remember the filenames, or where they are located....

No, I use nothing related to UTX and never used before.

I tried, put them to the smallest setting, but it made no difference.

Yes, but I don't know what parameter might change this. In fact I have PTA for a long time and haven't changed anything in the interim that might have created this situation. Or...it was caused by one of the recent PTA updates.

@Christopher Low

The two files may be

scenery\world\Global\3D_Light_NEW_DDN_1_5.BGL and 

scenery\world\Global\3D_Light_NEW_SDN4.BGL

It was a fix a very long time ago, I don't know if it still current.
