Night lighting......dreadful

I’d agree is too pattern but it’s definitely better brightness, better illumination of the landscape. They should keep the brightness and the amount of lights and just make it a little bit less pattern.

But street lights always form a pattern, often straight lines and gentle curves. So if that isn’t the pattern you and others are talking about then exactly what is missing or what is a pattern that shouldn’t be?

I think the night lighting of cities in the distance looks fantastic and what I’d think is realistic but I’m not an IFR or NVFR pilot so I’m not 100% sure. Up close it is certainly less so going by looking at my city on a big hill.

The night lighting is way better in 1.10.7. Darker ground as it is supposed to be. Much more real.

Is every road in the world having street lights “more real” as well?

Much like live weather being borked, plenty of people are happy with things being “pretty” instead of realistic.

I disagree, the night lighting is far better, maybe your hardware is lacking…

no my friend, nightlighting after patch is FATAL PERIOD.
to all who say it is better now… - you have no idea what you are talking about and you do not know what it is supposed to look like, and you dont have real feeling…

Who exactly are you talking to. Is hardware causing streetlights on EVERY road? Typical shill response.

…and when a light points down, it illuminates the ground below it. Walk outside and look at a street lamp. You can see the reflector at the top to maximise the light hitting the ground.

Where are those pools of light, rather than a million points of light shining in your eyes?

Lights shouldn’t point “up”, as is now modelled in the sim.

The previous version was WAY better than what we have now.

Also, midnight. Why is the sky blue at midnight? Regardless of water vapour in the air and reflections from it at night, it’s always dark up there in the sky.

So, Asobo, a lot of people have brought night lighting up as a discussion now, when it wasn’t really on the radar that much.

Good or bad, it’s now an issue. I say revert to the old version.

I say I’m entitled to my opinion…which is not pointless considering everyone is talking about it.

By the way, I am sane. Please be constructive with your comments.

Are you really this thick ? They didn’t fix the night lighting. They further broke it.

Hey Janyf…this post includes “Haze” in the topic. So, it’s not about the same thing. It’s about an additional issue. Please get your facts straight. And thanks again for being so constructive.

Oh the irony…

No war here, just sick of the wailing from some that seem to be blind
