View Full Version : O'hare night lights...

Yes, I know no one likes "night" shots...but these have a slightly different look. After adding the FSW night textures (white city) that I downloaded here, my night shots are coming out a little different.
For once I can actually see the plane.

Excellent Jeff. From what i've seen it appears difficult to achieve a nightime shot that looks anything other than a Blackout with a few lights on it, but this is nice. The problem is it looks fine when you're in the game but simply doesn't transfer to a screenie IMHO.
I like the cockpit reflection in the first shot esp. O'Hare looks better at night than during the day i think.
Good work as always.
Top marks for being quick enough to grab the reflections of your strobes on the paintwork! :)

Really good looking pictures as always.
I had been holding out from downloading those "white light" updates, but it looks like they work pretty good! Which pack did you use? I think I remember seeing several different "white light" updates on flightsim.com

I used the Fs 2002 replacement generic night texture v1.0, including nights roads. By FSW GROUP, Oren Cohen, Akio Tsukuma, Michael P Toussain. Created by Chris Willis. Visit the Web Site http://www.simflight.com/fsw
There are white and yellow light textures, I used the white version. Just make sure to follow the directions and backup your originals if you end up not liking them. I will probably try the yellow ones too. It does not change the lighting of the airport area, I think there are separate files for that somewhere.
Oh well thanks for the feedback!

Those are great! I've just been inspired to go do some night flying!

Kinda different for a change.

Very nice shots! I am on my way to get those night-textures right away!
Worlds worst kind of addiction? Flying...

Leave it to you to show us something brilliant. I love flying at night, and for once, somebody got the night shots to look great, thanks!

Thanks once again. I was amazed at the lights the airport had and was beginning to believe they were adding enough light for the picture, so I snapped a few. I did add two clicks of added contrast, which helped some, but is not the dramatic change that made the picture. Just sharpened things up a 'tad'.
