Default Landing Light Connected to Nav Light rehostat knob brightness

Dimming the Nav lights causes the Landing light to dim as well. I don't know if this is accurate behavior, but all the aircraft I've ever flown in real life and simulator, I've never seen this behavior. It doesn't exist in the T-38, so I'm guess it's probably a bug. I know this is an older model, but if you can get around to it, would be a good Squawk to squash. Thanks guys!

Neither my landing nor taxi lights appear to change in intensity with the intensity of the position lights. They do deactivate if the position lights are off, which is correct behavior. Per page 1-117 of TO 1F-5E-1 (Change 9), landing/taxi light operation requires gear down as well as position lights on.

Hmm, that is a strange one. Were you in cockpit or external view? Not that it should matter I guess. I tested in external view, both on the ground and in the air.

Was in the VC....I probably should have tested externally as well. Maybe it was just a fluke on my end? I haven't had a chance to fire the sim back up yet.
