[BUG LOGGED]Please fix the lights on AI Aircraft

I’d probably like it since I am ultra wide screen and aircraft lights show up like giant illuminated Tide Pods™

Oh I agree that they left something to be desired, but they are called anti-collision lights for good reason…

How about on all the planes. I’d like to be able to see the runway when I’m landing at night.

Yea the candlepower of most aircraft is like holding up the screen of a flip phone for light.

Same issue on other aircraft genrated while flying in VatSim.

There is some news here. Looks like we are screwed for now as far as AI Aircraft is concerned.

Lights and draw distance as well. At 4K ultra settings, you can’t see any planes or lights until they are very close.

So proprietary now? Then fix your bloody lights!

It looks like they nuked something on the [ELECTRICAL] side of things. I use 3rd party models for AI and the ones with old pre-MSFS values seem to have working lights while the models with modern settings don’t.

Can you share the [ELECTRICAL] settings before the update? I’d like to try them on current AI aircraft to see if it would fix it…

These are old prehistoric values from a 3rd party model but the lights are working. Don’t forget to disable the modern stuff in your system file.

So should I take out everything under [ELECTRICAL] and replace it with what you mentioned? Or should I just add on what you mentioned without deleting stuff?

You can create a back up file and just replace the stuff or you disable every line with a ; in front of it.

Please elaborate on the “modern” stuff in the “system file” please.

Every aircraft folder has a systems.cfg

Make a back up of that file, replace the [ELECTRICAL] and see if it works.

I’ll take a run at it tomorrow and advise.
Using IVAO for traffic so should be interesting.

I see in system.cfg there is also a [LIGHTS] section. Do you have legacy data for that?

No the [LIGHTS] section has the modern values.

Just tried changing the systems.cfg in the Asobo_Generic_Airliner_TwinEngines aircraft. Logged into VatSim at KSLC and it didn’t seem to fix the issue.



That is a A320 and not a generic twin engine.
