Zurich to Prague a320 Dawn Departure

Night highway lights are overdone and wrong colour in Europe (should be white instead of orange), let's hope someone will fix them like in XP11

MSFS lighting might be slightly too bright, but the colours aren't wrong. Here's a real life takeoff from Zurich. The headlights of the cars on the highway are bright white whereas the highway lighting is yellowy orange...

I meant that in XP11 there was a fix to make white like in real life, not sure about UK though. Default XP highway lights are orange like in FS2020.

They use orange lights as they are better in fog, but we have everything from blue/white tinged to yellow/orange.

I could not see any highways in that movie, anyway it looks like people love overdone effects, I just think they are too gamish and XP11 captures nightlife much better, not to mention the emissive light from ground  texture at night, not really what I see on my night flights.

I think that we have a difference of opinion over what constitutes a highway. I was pointing out the roads close to the airport where one can clearly see vehicles travelling on them shortly after the plane takes off. If not, then my apologies. :cool:

Anyway, I believe that there will always be some subjective differences of opinion as long as there are people to debate the point with - we're all similar , but quite different individuals after all. 🍻 Speaking of subjectivity - it has been many years since I was fortunate enough to be an airline passenger, much less be in a private plane on a night flight, and my memory isn't photographic. If some kind soul could endeavour to take me aloft for a night flight over Europe (purely as no-fee, self-adjusting ballast of course!) the I could refresh the visuals!  :biggrin:
