  2. Night Environment France was recently a very nice and detailed review of Night Environment France over at Mutleys Hangar; by John Guest, They conclude: "The Night Environment range of scenery add-ons provides an improved nocturnal lighting model for those who like to fly at night. Night Environment France attempts to take the range up another gear." full review here.

  6. Flight Simulation and Optimizing Night Time Flights Generally speaking out of the box fresh sim install is mainly geared towards day time flights; With very little regards to night flying, Setting up for a proper day time flight requires allot of attention to detail; from setting up controls, weather conditions, scenery complexity, vehicle, and visual add-on’s This process could take one few months to get comfortable with his environment settings and gear, it’s a tedious task many of us take to extreme (to say the least!), your day time flight environment is balanced perfectly for the day; at the same time is also consuming the same resources at night; not leaving much room for night time add-on’s, There is a misconception that when night falls its dark anyway; what’s there to see? Optimize…? What’s there to tweak different then day time when you barely see anything? The last statement is the general concept most have when it comes to night flights; bear in mind that up to not long ago, night flying didn’t really exists to the extent it’s been developed in the past several years, the original developer never envisioned such transformation that it never was an area of much interest; but recent developments allow us now to fully have VFR night flights; while looking out the window at real world vector data, before we continue deeper into this article; remember the first few sentences I started with; the sim's night environment deserves now as much attention as day time does to fully enjoy todays night add-on’s, many day time element are not visible at night, to redirect resources; some settings can be adjusted towards an optimized environment for night flights, if we start by going through the settings in FSX/SE/P3D configuration tabs; let’s have a look at Weather Tab, consider that a normal human eyes can perceive natural lights in the real world (depending on conditions and alt) 60-100 miles away in optimal conditions, adding clouds at night beyond the minimum slider potion is pointless at night; as well as drawing high detail clouds; and every other related daytime eye candy, moving to the Scenery tab, Mesh complexity and Mesh Resolution both can be significantly reduced, you will not see the added vertices drawn at night or a fine mountain contours and subtleties, A mesh complexity of 30 with mesh resolution of 76-38 should be more than sufficient for night flight, Texture resolution… at night? Do I need to extend on this one? Same goes for Water Effect, These are not visible at night; there is no need to extend resourced for these features at night, Scenery Complexity and Autogen Density shouldn’t exceed Normal for night fight, In Aircraft Tab, Shadows aren’t really visible at night; it is recommended to turn shadows off, but to each his own, In Graphics Tab I personally like the visuals at night with antialiasing switched off These are just few very basic guidelines for optimizing your night time flights The goal behind this is to free resources that aren’t used during night; you can dig more and find many creative way to conserve resources at night, Many third party add-ons can also have their day time settings optimized for night; using the same logic, Believe it or not, your unused aircraft adds up to the global VAS usage regardless of day or night, I keep my unused aircraft in a folder I make called “hangar” with the same structure that’s inside SIM\SimObjects\ ; I keep this folder under SimObjects folder, this where 99% of my aircrafts are in (including default), If you only fly in a predefined area like US, or UK etc… There is no need to load the whole world every time you go for a local flights! The last two advisories will decrease your sim load times significantly; as well as reduce your initial VAS consumption in general! Before we go into more technical detail; no one is expecting you to manually go through each and every one of these setting each time you go for a flight, Yet… It is unreasonable to assume that with today’s add-on’s our sim’s should work regardless what we install in it; we have HD textures, as well as HD Photoreal, and HD mesh and so much more than what initially thought of, one must remember that we are still bound to 3.6GB usable VAS memory space allowed by x86 (32bit) application platform; the name of the game here is balance; you have to balance your memory consumption to accommodate everything you want in your current flight, This is the time to mention SimStarter By Developer - Peter Rosendhal. http://aviation.pero-online.de/ i highly recommend using SimStarter to create various startup profiles; to speed up your fsx load times; and general performance tweaks; you can create many profiles that launch you right into your preconfigured flight without wasting time; you can customize all the above settings and much more from a single GUI interface; you will have complete control over all of Sim’s elements; , scenery.cfg, fsx/se/p3d.cfg as well as many third party add-on’s settings, save your setting to a profile on your desktop, and with one click; SimStarter will put you on the runway with all the preconfigured environmental settings you selected for that profile, SimStarter is a free and can be found here – http://aviation.pero-online.de/wordpress/?page_id=105 ; there are many tutorials on how to configure SimStarter to hook into third party add-on’s; please don’t forget donate to help Peter continue his development on this magnificent irreplaceable tool! Note that these guidelines should be used for day time flight as well as night time flight to maximize your Sim potential and VAS pool, if there’s something I neglected to mentioned please feel free to discuss; this is an open discussion about this topic; Looking forward to hearing some feedback from you guys, Happy Flying
  7. Hi all, testing at night the 737-800 in LGAV by Flytampa in p3d v4 with dynamic lights on I've noticed something wired as if the lights layers was misaligned when using the pedestal panel light (the one that also illuminates the FMC keys.
  8. Hello Can you let me know if there is a chance to dim the "storm" light? It is way too bright for night landings. Cheers Csaba

  16. Hi all, I've installed 737-600/700/800/900 with model update. I have a panel state issue upon initial load into FS9 with all liveries. Everything works fine except for the logo light not working. i.e. The tail logo doesn't light up. However, if I load the default 737-700 cold and dark flight from select a flight, go through the checklists to power up using either APU or Ground Power; this then fixes the issue of the logo light not working, including on all liveries (i.e. without exiting FS9, creating a new flight). Is there a way for me to save the panel state for the 737? Thank you in advance for any help on this. EDIT: Resolved (solution below) Found out that you cannot save the panel state for the 737 series. PMDG Source. So I've found a temporary solution for myself. I'll write it here for others if they have this issue and want to resolve it too ... 1) Load FS9 2) Choose "Select a Flight" 3) In the list choose PMDG > 737-700 cold and dark 4) Once the flight has loaded (the aircraft will be in a default cold and dark state) ... Press the alt key > World > Go to Airport ... load an airport you want to start at usually (call it your home airport) ... don't bother changing the time once you are at your home airport in a cold and dark state (as you will probably always change this anyway). 5) Once loaded at your home airport, go through the checklist in the aircraft to a panel state you are comfortable with in starting at in every flight; i.e. a panel state where you are at a point in the checklist you are comfortable at starting at for every flight you do. For me I went through the checklist up until FMC entries prior to PUSHBACK & START. However I have to change or update the following: a. OVHD > Set cruise altitude and destination airport elevation b. OVHD > Fuel pumps check (dependant on fuel load) c. OVHD > Start APU or select Ground Power (checking of electrical systems) d. OVHD > APU bleed switch ON/OFF (for starting engines) e. OVHD > double check YAW is set to ON e. MCP > Course, Heading (runway), initial ATC altitude cleared to, VNAV, LNAV, double check AUTOBRAKE setting RTO, initial Speed, Flight Director ON etc ... f. Then continue checklist's from FMC entries, then PUSHBACK and Engine Start. 6) Save the flight (press alt key > Flight > Save as ... Name it PMDG 737 Custom start > tick the box "make default flight". 7) Now everytime you load FS9 to do a flight, it will load the above default state for the PMDG 737. Once FS9 has loaded, you MUST click Fly Now so it loads the flight above. Once loaded, you can then create a new flight as you would normally, noting that you have to start from the following checklist (as mentioned in step 5 above).
