Re: Runway and Landing Lights POP

So what you are seeing, in my opinion, isn't something that's "broken" per se, but something intentional in the code to keep performance reasonable. Yes, I'm sure it was intentional for performance reasons. But again, this optimization/feature was added way back in the FSX days when displaying e.g....

Re: Airport Lights Issue

Here we go again. Every single time this issue comes up someone will post a static image taken at the perfect moment at the perfect distance at the perfect angle to prove that this bug doesn't exist. Hint: a bug related to popping lights will show up when things are moving.

Re: Airport Lights Issue

> You have, of course, brought this matter to the attention of the makers of your add-ons? I'm not the OP of this particular thread but I wanted to point out the OP mentionen two different issues (dark lights vs popping lights). The runway/airport light popping is an old FSX bug that has been report...

Re: Runway and Landing Lights POP

I'm still amazed by the fact that many users and developers seem to thinks it's perfectly fine that half of the lights in the middle of the runway are missing during every single start and landing. The same community that can go on and on for 20 pages about some switch or knob not having exactly the...

Re: Runway and Landing Lights POP

The runway light popping has nothing to do with any recent update or any particular scenery or airport. It has nothing to do with your graphics settings and it has nothing to do with your hardware performance. It's actually a really old bug that originates from the FSX era. It has been reported by m...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

With changing distances, the next greater model will be used. This is the reason for the popping. It is not a fault in P3D. As mentioned before, this is not the issue I'm primarily talking about here. Lets call this one issue #1: Although this one is annoying too it usually not affects all users in...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.5

I did a night approach KDTW 04R P3Dv4.5 Tiny bit of runway edge lighting shift during the approach. During an approach I am not focused on the far end runway edge lighting. The issue is far more prominent when approaching a bit high, so depending on the type of approach and what a/c you use I reali...

Runway lights still popping in v4.5

So once again I thought maybe this could be the time that the old runway light bug from the FSX era was finally going to be fixed. With the night lighing improvements and all, this must really be the time, finally. But no... clean install of v4.5, load a night flight, and you can clearly see that th...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

Very sad to say this but I guess it's time for me to realize that this bug is never going to get fixed. Me and others have reported the issue for years and years now but it never even gets any attention. It's always "I don't see it, you must be doing something wrong" or "update your drivers", and th...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

Here is a screen capture from your video. Am I really the only one who can see that runway lights are missing (by the red markers), and that it looks really weird?

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

That's interesting. Do you mean that you don't see the problem at all, or that you see it but you don't think it's worth caring about? That's an honest question because the issue is really obvious to me, although it's usually worse than in your video since you come in low and have tiny runway lights...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

In your video the issue is a bit mitigated as you come in pretty low and have small runway lights, but the issue is clearly there. Look at the green lights suddenly changing at 2.30. And a couple of seconds later a few runway lights pop out,and it keeps doing that the seconds following. Pause at 2.3...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

Sad to see that there is still no response to this issue after all these years. I guess flight simmers don't care much about having blinking disco lights on the runway during night landings. If it isn't going to be fixed, I'd appreciate if LM could at least say "We know, but we don't care, stop send...

Re: Runway lights still popping in v4.4

Not in 4.4 but here is a screenshot I made for one of the previous reports: https://imgur.com/a/LdrNx0L The issue is identical as in v4.4. Finding a video showing the problem is easy as pretty much every night landing video in p3d ever created contains this problem. I searched for "prepar3d night ap...
