FTXG : Night Lights !

FSX/P3D. Compared with FSX defaut textures - designed more than 7 years ago - FTX Global adds its own set of night textures and very effective dusk and night 3D lights. Here are some screenshots - not edited ones - in some large cities in USA. In most cases, these lights will enhanced your final approach on main airports.

Even with Aerosoft Manhattan X, FTX Global adds some new lights around the island and on some avenues.

It would have been good if the lights worked in complete separation of the default autogen slider. We could reduce the autogen houses and still fly into complex airports with the PMDG NGX even with a maximum number of night lights. No OOMs any more.

The lights truly are spectacular. I was just landing in Munich a bit ago and the way they were positioned in a rural setting was very realistic and makes me very, very glad I bought FTX Global!

I agree with DMac10121 completely. I decided to do some circuit patterns in the 737NGX at Montreal Airport (FlyTampa Addon) at dusk. All I could say is WOW. It makes such a difference, the color and the brightness of it is right on point. I could even tell straight away during taxi that it was going to be special, as I could see the city lights glowing on the horizon, behind the airport tree lines. I've noticed no impact on FPS, though there are thousands of lights displaying at the same time. Great job Orbx!

This lighting system is transforming the way we see and use FSX. I just hope that they can find a way to fix the fact that UTX roads are not recognized by the vector lighting system. The UTX roads have not 3D lighting, as the GUID used is different from the default apparently...
