One of the things I’ve noticed while flying recently is the time and sunlight available. I was flying at 1900Z in the winter, and of course, it was dark, but when I was flying in the summer (at the same location), at 1900Z, it was also dark, in real life at summer, it wouldn’t be dark during that time IRL, and with the night stuff we have now, I think the community would prefer to have more daytime :)
Try pressing current time button, that should set it to the proper time.
This feature already exists. The sunset and sunrise occurs close to if not precisely when it’s supposed to. It’s been like this since Global was released.
