Default new night lighting tech only for upcoming maps?

Hello,
does the following statement by Chizh mean, that improvments to night lighting will only and exclusively come with new maps, or does it mean, that we will see it first on upcoming maps?

thanks.

If you ask Chizh in a private message he'll most likely respond. He responded to a question i had the same day in English. You're better off getting an answer directly like that. Just don't spam him and be polite. I'm sure he'll get back to you.

Chizh confirmed, that new night lighting tech will be in new maps only, as it requires significant changes to the maps.


Thats unfortunate and i wish current maps could still get it eventually, but at least it hints at some serious work being done to the night lighting tech.
I hope this is also only about actual terrain lights (city lights, airport lights etc.) and that other improvments would apply to all maps (aircraft nav light visibility, landings lights, strobes, sun/moon transition bug etc.)


Hopefully we will read more about it in an upcoming newsletter...

Which night lighting dost thou speak of? It's just pitch black currently... since the forced DS, the virtual citizens seem to be pretty good at this though:






Makes flying at nite a ride through hell... having some airport lighting back again would be the least I'd appreciate very much.

I'm not a native speaker. With lighting i was referring to the quality of light or the way a scene is lit.
You are right, that one big problem is the absence of light, or more precisely the low draw distance of lights. But there are a ton of other problems, that are already discussed in other topics (dynamic range, nav light / beaon visibility, sun-moon transistion bug etc.).
With all but the draw distance issue, i don't really see how a map tech overhaul would be needed to fix those though.

I will be very sad if the old maps do not receive this night technology.

That's what I was saying ... need to look 10 years ahead so better that all the core-engine and tech gets done ASAP so you can have a base upon which is expandable and updatable without having to redo it all and avoids situations like this.

There should be infrastructure in place now for all the HDR/WCG stuff so the textures are all ready for when that comes to the users monitors, so textures can be developed earlier and not be outdated so quick.
