    You just have to mess with the numbers to change the time lights turn on/off.  Unfortunately you won't be able to get lights to turn on during the day unless IFR conditions are present.  Some addon airport developers are using SODE lighting which you can turn on during the day....

    I actually got the ORBX and airport lights to turn on earlier now with DAY_THRESHOLD=55000 and it works good, but the runway lights are not coming up until late dusk when its almost really dark,

    i checked with LIRN and LGAV, do you think SODE is the reason why with no IFR conditions? 


  2. thanks guys but i did tried lots of combinations with 


    even tried the highest number which is 65535 and nothing changed,

    i used the time view option and the light turned on at 19:06, no matter what value i put in there.

    im just thinking about it now and i did made it while the sim is on. so maybe i will try DAY_THRESHOLD=55000 while sim is shut.

    BTW what is the time related with DAY_THRESHOLD=55000?

    Thanks !


  3. Hi i was looking over and i think i found something old 


    it seems like its not working anymore no matter what number i put, the runway and ORBX lights turned on late dusk, when its almost really dark.

    you guys have another trick to make them light earlier?




  4. it is sounds like a really great add on and thank you for that! 

    if i have BVAI installed, how i delete it ?

    it will work while im going on VATSIM? im affraid i cant recognize what is real traffic.

    i can use the AIM as Aircraft Pack and Liveries for Vpilot?




  5. Hello,

    i am really into replacing my 1080 24" LG as it so small, and thinking about going VR (rift s, HP)? 

    really confused which one is better. 🙄

    mostly flying PMDG birds, the gauge reading/FMC is really important for me.  i know you can get best immersion with VR, but what about the small details?

    how about a nice 55" 4k TV? i know some people here tried and never looked back. i really want to go with VR but really worried about all the side effects ( SDE, fog, controllers, Navigraph)

    my rig is 8700 and 1080 runs really good with my sim now.

    i would like to hear your opinions,

    Thanks .

    I have just completed a fascinating winter night flight from LIMC (Milan-Malpensa) to EDDT (Berlin-Tegel) with the PMDG 777-200. Night sky is not pitch black, but very dark grey. The grey scale is continuous, much smoother than in the Rift CV1.


    how is the gauge reading/configuring fmc? or the 200 doesn't has fmc lol?

  7. Hi Andi

    An NDB or Non-Directional Beacon is a ground-based, low frequency radio transmitter used as an instrument approach for airports and offshore platforms.
    The NDB transmits an omni-directional signal that is received by the ADF or Automatic Direction Finder, a standard instrument onboard aircraft.  The pilot uses the ADF to determine the direction to the NDB relative to the aircraft.  To navigate using the ADF, the pilot enters the frequency of the NDB and the compass card (or arrow) on the ADF will indicate the heading to the station.  The signal is transmitted on an uninterrupted 24/7 basis.  An audible Morse Code call sign of one or more letters or numbers is used to identify the NDB being received. its basically just give you the direction to the NDB station, not to the runway.

    VOR is different thing and can give you radial to the runway.

    hope i explained it good..

    Keep in mind when you're up in the air there is no light pollution and you will see a lot more stars than when in or near a city. Just like when you're in a remote location like a desert.

    I'm talking about sitting at LAX or any other airport.. where the light pollution is very high, and even when dusk you can see them.

    I fully agree with you. There are really too much stars to be seen in FSX/P3D skies when using the default "stars.dat". You will never see so much stars when looking out of the the cockpit. Moreover the intensity of the stars is very unrealistic.

    A few years ago I used the tool „AutoStarX“ to create a new „stars.dat“ file which only contains about 3000 stars. Additionally the contrast and brightness of the individual stars is far more realistic. I copy this "stars.dat" file over the existing one every time I reinstall P3D from scratch. 

    I don't know if this tool works in P3Dv4.

    Regarding the problem with displaying stars at dusk or dawn - I'm afraid there is nothing to be done about that.


    I have the autostarx but I dont know how to generate a new file with less stars, can you please send me your stars.dat ?

  10. Hi,

    this issue is bothering for long time,

    sitting at KATL at 8:30 PM and look at all those stars, its really annoying, im not even talking about dark time, you sit at LAX and you have a million stars just above your head,

    there is anything to do?

    BTW the upper half of the picture is a picture before that one.. its just shoved in there lol

    It doesn't make a difference whether you set ASCA to full dynamics or global automatic when it comes to sky colors (it only matters for cloud textures and structures). When you fly during daytime, there is not going to be that much variation, but when you fly during dawn/dusk, you should see different sky colors depending on day and region. However, make sure that in Envtex, you set to use Envtex sky textures only.

    i think that is my problem. im flying most of the time during the same hour.. 13:00 PM..

     dusk make my sim stutter to death. do you know what can cause it?
