Runway / Taxiway Light to always on
« on: January 30, 2021, 10:49:23 pm »
Is there a way to have the Runway and Taxi-Way lights always on?

In FSX - the visuals can sometime sbe a bit ropEy (poor texture resolution) (mainly to avoid OOMs), so to aid visibility (i.e. to make sure I can see where the runways is) - I'd like to turn the runway and taxi way lights to always on. In a lot of SODE xml files there's a condition
Code: [Select]
<ConditionalVisibility Variable="TimeOfDay" Value="DAWN;DUSK;NIGHT"/>
But I can't find the an apprpoiate XML/Condition for FSDT JFK.

(Things are fine in P3D as I'm not concerend about OOMs (as I'm flying the PMDG 777 & QW 787 in P3D as opposed to the FSLabs Concorde in FSX).
No charge is made for any work herein distributed, however donations are always welcome.

You cannot just add a condition with SODE to a scenery you haven't made yourself. It requires changes at the source code level, and in any case it requires the scenery use entirely custom runway/taxiway lights so, it's something that is done differently for each scenery, since some use entirely custom lights, some entirely default ( which cannot be changed ) and some use a combination of the two.
