Can we please be more serious about the night flights? I thought when we had 3D Airport, it also came with lights, not all lights but just taxi lights and landing lights, at least. What is reality flights with reality time when you can never make a flight at night because you can’t see a thing. Is that a difficult task to do?

As a general rule, if something isn’t done it’s probably because it is hard to do. I’m sure the devs aren’t just ignoring the 1,900 votes on the feature request.
With the new update out, the minimum visibility just got even more minimum. And I love flying IFR while in solo or whenever there is minimums on the servers. And when ever I land and am at taxi speed its a bit hard to find the taxiways. My idea is that we add the neon blue taxiway lights like at the real airport so people don’t accidentally go through grass or another aircraft in live because I know for a fact that some people would.
Take a look at this, it’s not ideal, but it helps a lot. It has allowed me to make some night flights.
Based on the interest in a taxi/landing light upgrade, I want to share information that significantly improved the night flying experience for me. If anyone is an astronomer and knows a better way to explain feel free to share/correct this.
Big picture: Be able to set very bright moonlit conditions no matter where your aircraft is on Earth. It involves 4 steps:
1. The first thing you need to do is set the year. I’ll explain this for 2020. You can do this for any other year but the days in…
