Hello,

 

I have brought and installed your EGPE scenery and landed this evening to total darkness, no runway or taxiway lights to guide me to the gate.

Hi,

 

Gonna need a bit more info please so lets start with

What platform are you running it on? FSX, FSX:SE, P3Dv1, P3Dv2, P3Dv3 or P3Dv4

Your picture show there are runway lights and taxiway lights just very dim for some reason and not lighting the ground

do you get lights at other airport?

 

Paul

Hi Tim

 

with P3D we use the standard lights for the runways/taxiways etc so it looks like something didnt get installed correctly.

Can you check you are using version 1.41 (version 1.40 had a bug with P3Dv4) and you select P3Dv4 when installing so it installs the correct files.

I would re-install our airport over the top again and see if that fixes the lights.

 

Paul

I have reinstalled the airport without any success, I even tried to mixed many configurations within the control panel.

 

I purchased the installer on simmarket and I can confirm its 1.41 

 

Kind Regards

 

Tim

ok, can you try the following

1. download Attached File  Scenery.zip   5.33KB   80 downloads

2. extract files to desktop

3. move and overwrite the 3 files here "{P3Dv4}\SIM720\Airports\SIM720_EGPE\Scenery\"

 

retest. these are the files that should get installed that activate the lights for P3Dv4

Then im at a bit of a lose im afraid as to why they dont work because they do here and its only default lights which are built into P3D that we use.

Could you take a couple of pictures for me to see if i can spot anything

1. the runway lights up close

2. taxiway lights

3. terminal area showing if the building and tarmac are light up

4. car park lights

 

you could also disable our airport in the scenery library and see if the lights work on the deafult Inverness airport

 

Paul
