In IF, we currently only have centerline lights, REIL, and edge lights for runways. My idea would be to add the lights that mark where the touchdown zone is. As an old airport editor, I know editors add these lights to the airports, but they are just not shown in IF, like taxiway lights. My idea would just be to allow them to be shown.
Here’s an image of some of these lights. I know this image is not the best, but that’s what I could find. The tdz lights are the ones between the edge lights and the centerline lights.
Yes, I think all airport dynamic lighting, the ones discussed here and all the others will be addressed by IF development with the implementation of project metal. I can’t say this definatively but it think the Project Metal discussions state this.
So a request now, (I agree with this request ) maybe premature. It also may come as a standard IF airport upgrade with the new game core coding in time anyway, I am cautiously optimistic that many of our wish list items will be there for us as the next generation of IF comes available for us !
