I am not a guru, but looking at the way it works it has to do with some place in the time o the day, an specific hour at dusk when not only the AI lights, but also the Airport lights Turn on. there must be a line somewhere defining that time, Theoretically, that could be changed easily IF, and that's a big IF, that line coud be found and revealed. Theoretically, again, a expectable side effect would be having all day long lighted airports, which woudnt be a problem for me at all. The change of the scenery textures to the night ones, seem to be independet of the time itself, they seem to be a result of various factors including those related with seasonal changes in the places that are far from the ecuatorial line where the that change ocurr, as in real life in a very short range of time betwen the 18:00 hrs to the 18:45. Agan, this is just a theoretical exercise product of the observation of the changes produced during a day and in different places and seasonal times. Hope some day one of those gurus ot there can find those lines and give us the chance to change them.

Lights definitely needed - And how about having all aircraft have them on as required?Seems simple enough ;)>I am not a guru, but looking at the way it works it has to >do with some place in the time o the day, an specific hour >at dusk when not only the AI lights, but also the Airport >lights Turn on. there must be a line somewhere defining >that time, Theoretically, that could be changed easily IF, >and that's a big IF, that line coud be found and revealed. >Theoretically, again, a expectable side effect would be >having all day long lighted airports, which woudnt be a >problem for me at all.

I have been Looking all around and I know I'm missing something, I have accomplished all kind of effects and things possible with those AI lights (some wird ones), except of course what I want, I am making a comprehensive mapping of all those lines that can be tweaked, but I'm sure I'm missing something there..... however I KNOW that this can be fixed, and I'm not gonna give up, I promise!....Hope Somebody with more knowledge than me would be working on this too!!

Please take a look at the contrails, too!! I'm waiting for this since the release of FS2k2.There must be some fixed "30000" feet value in sim1.dll, which is the only place where you can find "fx_contrails_l" and something like "jet engine".Lowering 30000 to some more random value like 27654 would have some benefits. I would try patching this on my own, but since I'm not a good programmer...Thanks,ckfly
