I think this will be closed by a mod, but I just wanted anyways to ask a very important question about something? And here we go!
So recently in the developer stream at YouTube we got to hear some excited news about the upcoming reworked light system in the game which is 🔥! But I had a question that connected pretty much to what Jason asked Phillipe yesterday about the lights, which was when you stand on one side the lights is full on that side, but on the other it will be different!
But my question is a sort of connection to that question Jason asked! And it goes like this: When the new lighting system comes in place will it be dependent on the runway setup in the game or is ATC-decided? Like is it the ATC who decide which runways is in use? I have some pictures to show what I mean:
In the first picture, the rwy setup is decided by ATC. And currently it isn’t highlighted with green, orange or red!
2nd picture shows KDEN Denver Intl. currently used rwy!
And the last picture is a rwy layout in Kabul, and this one is a bit different. Because you see, many airports in the world like Kabul have one Rwy in use and one side with an ILS option. But sometimes at these airports and Kabul of course they sometimes change the direction, because of wind or other circumstances. And that’s when the 11 is in use for KABUL in this instance. And as I have read on the Internet, they say that the ALSF 2 approach lights is dependent on the ILS setup for the rwy. And for example Kabul this time has 29 with ILS, and I am sure that when this new system comes out this side will be fully illuminated.
But will it also be on the other side 11 with no ILS support?
Correct me if am wrong in these cases?
