New lighting systems and low visibility


With the addition of runway approach/guide lights, and new taxi way lights I had a question regarding when they come on during low visibility. I was testing it out in solo and noticed they only came on when the visibility was less than 1km. However, I feel like this isn’t super useful because even at a 3km visibility the runway is still pretty hard to see.

Was wondering if there was any thought to turn on the runway/approach/taxi lights on when the visibility is less than 4 or 5 km (no idea what that is in SM)? Thanks and any input or reason it’s so low is appreciated! As well as if it’s realistic to have the lights only come on at really low visibility?
