Default [REPORTED] Better landing/taxi light

In night with bad weather, it is nearly impossible to see where to taxi. AFAIK aircrafts has very powerfull lights.

Yes. We know. Ed knows.

But for some reason better lighting (that I see on FC3 planes like the eagle) cannot come to the Hornet without a graphics engine change.

It's a matter of different tech being used to build such newer modules.
They probably "over-upgraded" the modules tech for what the "new" old engine (2.5) can handle

For lights on aircraft, we have improved some, and other improvements will come. I am not sure where you are getting the graphics engine change from.

No, if you look at the A-10C, it has improved lights, it can be done for the Hornet, it just hasnt been done yet, it is reported

Ok. Must have been a misunderstanding my end about the different types of lighting. Thanks for clearing that up. Since it doesn’t require a graphics engine change I look forwards to better lighting sooner rather than later.
