I'm pretty sure that there is not that much light and for a reason. You don't want to expose your ship to everybody and further more the night-vision goggles would burn out.


Just some thoughts
They don't use NVG's on deck. On Amphibious ships the night lighting is compatible with the NVG's for the yellow shirts to use. I've never used them on a CVN!

Yes for sure !
... I've read that the use of NVGs for departure & recovery operations on a CVN is even forbidden !

Totally, Perhaps either through F# menus or setup in the editor.

@Jafergon and JackJack171, are you guys sure they are use all the time...even during cats and traps? How does that effect the pilots' natural night vision?

Yes, at night they are used. That faint orange glow off to the right in the video just before touchdown are the island lights. The video's don't do the lighting justice. Trust me, it's there. I spent 21 years looking at them lol.
