Summary:

Visibility misrepresented in game (compared airport METAR in game)

Steps to reproduce

  • Launch IF
  • Start flight (KICT) on live server
  • select visibility in bottom bar
  • Airport metar says 1/2SM and that is reinforced my bottom bar (0.81KM)
  • in game, visibility does not seem to be 0.81KM, in the photo, straight ahead, those airport green beacon lights are a good 5SM and 20SM away from my current position

Expected results:

Fly some cool low visibility approaches

Actual results:

Not low visibility, leaving me confused

More Information

Red is visibility, orange are the beacon lights


Edit:
Happened again at KEMP (0.40KM)
