I'm not sure if this is an FSDT thing... but I've noticed it at both CYVR and KLAX in the last few days... with both the PMDG 737 and the Aersoft Airbus Pro.

Running 4.4. The airplane is totally dark with no dynamic lighting.... also take a look at the ground texture. Very low quality. Had this problem both at LAX and YVR.

I didn't notice it until 4.4 and I didn't notice it anywhere except FSDT airports. Is this a settings issue?
Also when I turn on the taxi light... everything the light touches turns high res.

None of these sceneries have any dynamic lights, and since there's nothing in the scenery which will lit the airplane, its appearance at night will be exactly the same as any other default airport.

also take a look at the ground texture. Very low quality. Had this problem both at LAX and YVR

The texture looks exactly as it always did at night, before dynamic light was first included in the sim (so it's nothing to do with 4.4), and its resolution depends on the max texture size, which at KLAX must be 4K, otherwise you are not seeing the same resolution the scenery was designed with.

When you turn the airplane dynamic lights on, normal maps (that are normally inactive at night, until a dynamic light hits the texture), will appear, giving you the illusion on an higher resolution, and that's entirely normal as well.

Ohhhh. Okay, this makes a lot of sense, thank you for the quick response!
