Airport tarmac and taxiways lighted up at night

Pro Member First Officer

Hey I always noticed that at night all the taxiways and parking spots are always lighted up. Should they be dark at night? What I mean is that the taxiways and parking spots are always bright at night as it is in daytime. Is there a way to make the taxiways look dark at night? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

is that for every airport or are you using an addon scenery because sometimes they make stupid mistakes like forgetting to add night textures.

It's all default, except for Newark International Airport where I put an AFCAD file and Kai Tak Airport where I upgraded scenery. However, they All don't have night textures. I can see the taxiways and parking spots at night in the air, which makes it really unrealistic. You know what I'm saying?

Look around for the addon FSnight.............

fs2night2.zip - AVSIM.com

This will get rid of the BRIGHT night problem,and give you Nighttime realism!

Perfect! After taking a look at the pictures on avsim, this is exactly what I needed to made the tarmac and taxiways look dark. I'll download it later. 😀

Bad news! When I downloaded and installed the night time addon, the taxiways and tarmac are still bright! What am I doing wrong? I installed the addon into my flight simulator 9 folder. Has this happened to anyone? Help me! 😞

I don't have it installed but here is an excerpt from the read me file.
"Installation:
Run the FS2004NT.exe to Setup the program.
Start the program from the FS2004 Night Time Fixes folder in the Start Menu.
There are 3 sets of options:
1. Darken the default night lighting for clouds, aircraft VC, airport grounds, and autogen.
2. Dim the airport lighting systems: Vasi, Edge Lighting, Taxiway Lighting, etc..
3. Dimmer/Bluer Landing & Taxi lights for default aircraft. But will NOT WORK on some 3rd party aircraft such as Real Air Marchetti

Read FS2004 Night Time PDF Manual for further information and pictures."

Which part of the Flight Simulator 9 Folder should I install it to? Should I put the Night Time in the textures folder or other folders?

I don't have it but it looks like all you do is run the FS2004NT.exe to Setup the program, I don't think you have to manually move anything.

the only thing you have to move is where you want to put the program into whick folder and file. By the way, when i tried the update and when i selected dark night lighting and dim airport lighting options, only the lights dim. The self illumination is still there and i dont know why.
