I am new to IFC, and I have some questions and hopefully you guys can help.
I am not able to create feature requests or make posts about real world aviation or events, can someone explain this?
I have heard the CRJ was resently reworked but I only have the CRJ-700 and the old 200. Wasn’t the CRJ-200 also going to be reworked and the 900 and 1000 added
The moon in IF. In the sim and there is no moon up, it’s dark the way it looks in real life with no moon. In the sim when there is a moon, it lights up the whole sky a lot brighter and you can see everything like it’s day. Is this realistic? In real life when there is a new moon I only notice a slight difference in light in real life.

Those are still undergoing testing by the beta testing team. Keep an eye on the #announcements category as all official announcements will be made here through FDS developers/staff members.
The moon in IF carries the same moon phases that you would see in real life. If you stick your head outside tonight, you’d likely see that the moon is on track to become a full moon here in a few days. This will be mirrored in IF as well. As for the lighting, this is a sim. Not everything will be perfect and down to a “T”. The developers try hard and put an enormous amount of work and effort to try to make the lighting as close to the real thing.
Natural night lighting (different than taxiway or aircraft lights) has specifically been noted by developers as something that they’d like to improve on. Over time things will continue to improve. It takes a little patience and feedback from the community to make things become a reality. Hope this helps!
