Pilot-Controlled Lighting Settings?

Recommended Posts

I am finishing up a missing airport for Fly!II - it's the first airport I'll be placing that has pilot-controlled lighting. I took a "guess" as to the DB settings, but so far it's no joy. Does anyone have experience with the appropriate settings?Here's what I've tried so far:1) Set up Unicom in COM to allow for radio activation2) Airport.DBD - Set Airport Lighting Control=8 (Radio Controlled)3. Runway.DBD - Runway Light System=6 (Medium Intensity Edge)4. Runway.DBD - Runway Pilot Controlled Lighting=1 (Yes)I fired up the sim and transported to the airport. With the above settings, I get no lighting at all: set Unicom in the COM radio and tapped the Backspace Key (Mic) 5 times...NadaI changed the time to dusk and tapped the mic switch again...NadaI went back into the DB, turned off item 2. Now the lights come on at dusk but still no response to the radio.Does this feature not work in Fly!II or am I missing a setting here? :-roll

Folks, here's what Dan shared. Apparently there was a bug in the pilot-activated lighting (you had to cycle back 1/2 hour in time, then forward 1/2 to get a response). Dan thought this was corrected, but it may be broken again. Before I go and make any pronouncements about what works and what doesn't, we'll be running some tests and checking out the new builds in the beta group. I'll post back here in a few days.
