Simobjects receive no lighning

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody

I recently noticed something bad in my sim. On some Airports (for example Orbx LDDU, FlyTampa EHAM), all Simobjects (My planes but also for example GSX vehicles) appear to be completely dark when i set the time to night (See the Pictures). The textures are there but they just don't receive any lightning from the floodlight on the airport. Also, No light comes to the inside of the cockpit. It only doesn't work on some airports (For example no problems in Aerosoft LSZH).

Has anyone an idea what the problem could be and how i could solve it ?

It happens to PBR-Planes as well as non-PBR-Planes. The problem also occurs with Tomatoshade enabled and disabled. I have dynamic lightning and HDR lightnind set to On in the settings.

Best regards

To me, this lighting is simply not dynamic, means it is just baked into the texture. Nothing you can do about it, except finding a DL upgrade for those airports, for example over at inibuilds.

Not sure about Dubrovnik, but I do know that FlyTampa's Amsterdam does not come with native dynamic lighting...as Chris suggested, you can add it with a mod published at iniBuilds.

The Problem is just, that i know it worked better before. Also in EHAM i know that it has been working (without fix from inibuilds). That's whats strange.

Any idea what the reason for that is or what could have caused this ? If there is a reason ?

Thanks again for your help

Your plane probably was being lit by moonlight.  On full moon nights, things are actually a bit too bright.

That seems legit. Thanks for your help.

I just tested a few airports and it seems like only a few of them have the problem. And if there's a fix by inibuilds, it fixes it.

Cheers

Just to make things clear: this is NOT a "problem" of those sceneries, they simply did not include DL, either because it was based on an older variant made P3Dv4.x compatible or simply to save some resources. And as such, DL enhancements from inibuilds can not be called a fix, they do not fix anything, they add DL.

So nothing is broken, i do get that. Excuse my wording. I was just using those words because the missing DL is actually a state that is not enjoyable and the addition of the DL by ini makes the situation better looking.

Thank you for your clarification
