  1. I constantly see post from simmers who rave about the night environment in X-Plane. I mostly agree with them as takeoff and landing in the cover of darkness is a true pleasure in the sim. I can't compare the experience to FSX or P3D because I don't remember doing much flying at night with them, I mostly avoided it. However, with XP I often will bid on flights that take me into the night. So, I guess that's a testament to the sims features. But.... While takeoff and landing are great , cruise in darkness in X-Plane is kinda wacky! First, the issue with "moonshine" in beta is bothersome enough (I'm thinking they will fix that). The more irksome issue is the numerous airports in sight that shine bright regardless of distance, cloud cover and surrounding area. It's almost like the runway lights are the only lights you see for miles in every direction! I know some of us need that security if a nearby airport "just in case" but, this is and looks crazy! I'm surprised by this because the team at LR have done a fantastic job with the rest of the sim My questions are; Is there a way to turn down distant runway lights in the settings? Or, is there a mod/plug-in that addresses the concern? Finally, I haven't seen other comments on this issue so, is it just me?
  2. Hi! feel free to try : https://www.dropbox.com/s/akwkuuvv59f2cx4/photoreal_night_project_p3d.rar?dl=0 I created night sky textures and a milkyway texture based on real life pictures.
  3. Love p3dv4, but one thing thats annoying is the big stars. When I look up, it looks so unrealistic. Is there any good texture replacements that you know of, to make them smaller and much denser? I looked at this one: Chris Bell Creative Design Studios - Stargazer Project. Anyone with experience with this product?
  4. I noticed today when flying out in the early morning, the outside of the NGX stays extremely bright. I am using UT2 for traffic and the AI is dark, but my airplane isn't. I have PTA installed with the Thopat preset. I've attached a few pictures to illustrate my issue. Does anyone have a fix? I was thinking it could have something to do with the specific livery I have used. At night in general, the aircraft is always too bright. Also, when flying through cloud at night with dynamic lighting on, I can't see the clouds with landing lights on (should reflect quite brightly), I use ASCA for clouds and Envtex for everything else. . /
  5. Hi everyone! I have been a fan of FSX for quite some time and i recently decided to give P3D V3 a go. So far so good, everything looks much better than in FSX and it even runs much faster. I do have a problem tho, I am not sure if I am really getting the entire eye-candy that I should get, because I do see videos on youtube of people who managed to make the entire sim look almost perfect. Right now I'm having one particular problem I have seen in other threads for P3D V2 and V2.5, basically, SimObjects are just too dark at night, you almost can't see them, there's just a black silhouette where the aircraft or simobject is supposed to be. Allow me to illustrate. Notice also how the concrete is a light yellow color, this, as far as I know, is not normal at all. I would also like to point out that I have installed REX4, ORBX Vector and the airports you see are FSDreamTeam KIAH and Airsoft London Heathrow respectively. The concrete being yellow might be a problem not with the simulator itself, but with the airport. I have all settings turned up to max and quite a beast of a computer. I have also messed with the Prepar3D.cfg file to turn up the exposure and tweak the HDR, but the only thing it does is make everything bright, including the sky and the airport itself. In short, I'd like to make my sim look like this at night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTzfAOWFRLE And like this at day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI9lN9pCJr4 (I am aware that SweetFX might be the thing making the video look so realistic). Here are some photos also of my sim during the day: Thanks! Any help would be appreciated!
  6. Hi there, I am really excited to hear PTA V2 is available now! Right now I am struggling on light settings during the night. In P3D V3, the night is too bright even for a new moon night. I really want to know if PTA V2 can fix or tweak something like this. Is there any night lighting tweak, I think X-plane 10 has a fair realistic night though. Can we achieve an ideal night lighting similar to, as seen in Xplane 10 via PTA V2? I guess many people want to know the answer like I do. I really wish the developers and the users of PTA can help me with it. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Warm Regards, Gordon.
  7. Hi everyone, I recently did some night flights around Europe and I noticed that my frames are really bad (ca. 15FPS). During the day I get 40 to 60 FPS. I don't know why I lose performance during the night. Does anyone know how to get better frames at night? My system: i7 4790k@4.7Ghz GTX980ti 16 GB RAM at 2133mhz Asus Maximus Vii Hero Have a nice weekend Greetings Alex
  8. I thought I’d post few preview shoots from our upcoming Black Marble project, we bring you all new, accurate, and most recent, worldwide navigation level road network data, rendered into Sim native architecture, worldwide coverage of fresh and up to date road network (including traffic), accompanied with our new and most advanced lighting system we recently developed, (more info, pics and general discussion http://forums.nightenvironment.com/topic/207-black-marble) without further ado... let it be light :smile: New York City Miami (KMIA) Los Angeles (KLAX) Paris (LFPG) London (EGLL) Frankfurt (EDDF) Shenzhen Hong-Kong (Kai-Tak) Melbourne Los Angeles area top view
  9. Hi! There's a freeware Euro Atlantic 777 by POSKY and ricardo_tv I downloaded a while ago, and I noticed how amazing the landing lights/taxi lights are. I mean, they look like they belong on a payware aircraft! Is there someway I can use this lighting for other aircraft as well? The default ones on some planes look awful, and are a bit dark. If that's not possible, is there a way to brighten the default lights at least? Thanks ~topgearuk98

  16. A night approach to my hometown: This is in FS9, with these addons: - Carenado Mooney - Bucaramanga (SKBG) scenery by Butnaru - My own photo scenery... Hope you like it.
  17. Does anyone know of a way to really lower the brightness of stars at night? I'm using Autostar X and there is a way in the Tools option to lower brightness but in FSX that does not really show, especially if you zoom out in any of the views, the stars become brighter and brighter. I'm guessing that this has something to do with mipmapping each pixel? However I'm not sure. How are the individual pixels of the stars in FSX generated? I came across the fx_Dots.bmp and fx_WhiteDot in the FSX Effects folder and thought that these files may be related to the star pixels. I just want to be able to edit the stars to make them appear fainter in the night sky, without however reducing the actual number of stars.

  23. Hello Guys As the title says, I can't see the starts when looking for example to the right when inside the cockpit. Then I look to the left and the stars appears again. It happens the same some times with the arrows of the taxi route when on the ground. I'm using SweetFSX. I thought it worth to mention. Did anyone encounter this little issue? Thanks!!
