Vienna strange light flickering at night

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a strange behaviour on the brand new Vienna airport when I am near the terminal. As you can see in the following video I have no dynamic lighting and a strange light flickering at a constant frequency.

Video

Is it a known issue ?

 

Best regards,

Hi trile

Try to verify the installation via Orbx Direct

About the light flickering- Its looks like a problem with your Simulator - try to delete your Prepar3D.cfg and terrain.cfg and check again 

(Backup them before)

Hello,

I had the same flickering. I could solve it in the P3d under Settings, Options - Lighting, the two hack at "Simulation Objects". I don't know what this setting does? In any case, the flickering disappears with it.

Thank you Markus for that tip. Howerver I have the whole airport ground lights flickering at certain view angles with that option ticked.

Regarding Dynamic Lighting, could you please confirm that the feature is not present in the current version ? Will it be updated anyhow soon ? This is clearly and by far the biggest con of the product. If the dynamic lighting would be implemented, you would be close to have the most detailed airport of P3D.

Dynamic Lightning is indeed implemented! I had the same issue yesterday and solved it like that:

I went to my scenery.cfg where I had multiple entries of the scenery and deleted all of them. Reinstalled the scenery via ORBX Central and everything was back to normal.

Hope this helps!

Hello Georg,

I tried what you told me and it worked only for the first time I started my sim after your procedure. I closed it, did another flight and no dynamic lighting... Could someone from Gaya please confirm if this is a known issue or not ? Am I the only one experiencing this ?

Hello,

 

Unfortuantely the update did not solve my issue. I still cannot have any Dynamic Lighting on the airport. Which information do you need to help me with this ? I can provide whatever you want. I already tried to Verify the files from Orbx Central but still no clue.

Ok now I have the exact same issue aswell...

I am pretty disappointed about Gaya support. They say that they "commincate with their customers", but actually I had 0 help from them.

Anyway I managed to get all this work now with the last update. This is how I proceed:

1) Uninstall the scenary from Orbx Central

2) Clean your scenery.cfg by removing all things related to LOWW 

3) Install the scenary from Orbx Central

 

Following this I have no more issues with the dynamic lighting, and it is true that the last update improves a lot the FPS rate.

 

You are doing a very great job guys, the quality is awesome, keep it up. But don't forget to support your customers having issues, otherwise you will end loosing many of them, especially when you release an airport already modelled by a great quality competitor helping a lot its customers 😉 

Cheers

Seems there are still lighting issues, even in the latest version. The Jetways have a rotating light when in operation. That sends huge light beams all over the scenery.

Please go into your LOWW scenery folder and change the change LOWW_GSE_Beacon.BGL to ---> LOWW_GSE_Beacon.BGL.off.

that did not help. But during that, I found also LOWW_mics_beacon.bgl and setting that to .off cured it.

What else does that deactivate, just the Jetway beacon ?

It's control the jetway beacon lamp which probably casue you that issue. 

It's very weird since that has been solved at update 1.1 whille we are now at 1.2 already.

Is there a chance you change the Orbx Central installation folder lately or moved manually files from LOWW folder before installed the latest update?

No, I did not change anything in the folders. After you mentioned it has been solved in 1.1, I also did the 'verify files' inside ORBX. That didn't change it either. 

Weird indeed.
