Missed landing lights

Postby meitoma » Tue Aug 09, 2022 2:56 pm

Hello,
i´m using Win10 and FG Vers. 2020.3.9. If I´m flying for example a 757-200 or 300 I see the landing lights. But when i´m using a 777-200 or 747-400 for example i don´t see the lights. Yes, i have check the switch on the panel. They are on. How can I see the lights at the planes ? Here you have 2 screenshots. Thanks in advance.

can you go into an outside view by pressing v and check if the light "lamps" themselves are visible / lit ?
You won't believe how many issues dissolved into thin air after reinstalling !

can confirm, with ALS, 777-300 has lights modelled, but no actual light can be seen on tarmac.

and this is for 787-8:

like, there is lights, but too dim and short.

Citation II Sierra:

there is lights on the model, but no actual lighting on the ground.

and so on and so forth. Some planes is ok, like 707 (acceptable), or C172 (very dim lights on ALS).

I can only speak for the Citation II, but this aircraft has never a ALS light on tarmac.
And no, i will not improve it because FG introduce a new rendering (Compositor) in the next version.
So it is waste of time if we improve the lights in FG 2020.3.x.
If it is possible for you to install version 2020.4 (thats the development of the next version) ?
In FG 2020.4 the Citation II has allready the new Compositor lights.
Maybe the other aircraft are also improved for 2020.4.

Have you downloaded the Citation II from trunk hanger?
The aircraft in the 2020.3 hangar doenst have the compositor lights, because FG 2020.3 doesnt support it.
