No it isnt your fault. It is a FSX issue. Apparently it uses a new method of dealing with these lights , all FS9 aircraft imported into FSX have this problem, they only show when in 2D cockpit.

>Ok.But i have this problem with FSX default planes.Are you sure you have the setting for Landing Lights to illuminate Ground set in the Aircraft section of the Display settings?

I can always see the landing light on the default aircraft but I have never been able to see the taxi lights only, like on FS9.This happens when I switch landing lights off but leave taxi lights on or just turning on taxi lights without landing lights.What am I doing wrong?

You won;t see them on ANY aircraft.I do have at least one imported FS9 aircraft where the landing lights are visable on the ground in VC but I don't recall whichone it is. I'm away from home at the moment aand can't check.It is probably one of the aircraft from Classic Britiash Flight Sims group. Paul

I totally agree. Landing lights in MSFS are so ugly. They just make evrything looked washed out whereas in Xplane they look so good! I'll also agree that FSX is a 100 times better than X-plane overall however why is such a small thing so difficult to fix?Rgds,JCMK
