Possibility of extension of light rendering distance?

When working a tower view with VATSIM at KMIA, I noticed that aircraft that leave a certain distance of your view cease to emit light. If you zoom in, or get closer, the light returns. This is alright during the day, but when controlling at night, you can’t see aircraft at the other side of the airport because well, its pitch black. Anyone know/is familiar with what causes this and what the possibility is of increasing the threshold for what is emitted from aircraft lights within the sim?
