i have been away from the sim for a few months

 

in the carrier landing missions for both pg and the black sea i can't get the deck lights to come on.

 

i call inbound at 30 miles on 127.5 and get a response i continue to fly the case 3 approach and the lights never come on, i can see the meatball at about 7 miles but i never get the deck lights

 

is this a known issue or am i doing something wrong

 

open beta updated today 9/5/19

I think the carrier turns on the lights only at night (I'm not sure if it does in bad weather as well).

The vCVW-17 is looking for Hornet and Tomcat pilots and RIOs. Join the vCVW-17 Discord.

Carriers don't really deploy much lighting at night.

The pilot's rely on their instruments, comms and on the meatball only.

Yes it looks like CV lights are not working for landings, I have reported it.

yea only issue now not getting the landing call when landing on the stennis

 

That indeed sucks.

But irl the carrier isn't lit up like a christmas tree.

They want to remain undetected.

Is this fixed yet? I just tried the Case III landing mission and cannot seem to get the carrier's landing lights lights to come on. Only the superstructure and island lights seem to be on and they a rather dull.

 

I call the carrier for inbound on 127.5 MHz and get the normal response, but the lights still don't seem to be coming on at night?

 

Any advice/ help would be appreciated.

Yup, I do a Request to Land call and get nothing. I read someplace that the RtL call inside of 5.5 miles will trigger the lights. I’ve been mindful of that, and still no lights. Tried to land with NVGs, and that’s no fun. Sort of sucks because I’ve been working hard at night opns. I’m comfortable with airfield departures and aerial refueling, but nighttime carrier recoveries are still missing. Thoughts?
