Navigation lights are overdone

Recommended Posts

Yes, it was confirmed by real pilots from our community, the nav lights cant be seen so far away in RL like it is currently in the game, specialy during the day (sunny day even worse). Not only that they can be seen too far away but the intensity is the same as distance increases. This must be looked upon because its been abused by some teams online in any possible way.

Forget nav lights, short of a laser, no artificial light that can be carried on an aircraft can be seen that far in daylight.

It's even more than that: They're basicly invisible during daytime - which is precisely why they're not required to be used when the sun is up.

At night-time, under good conditions, you can see them for dozens (plural!) of miles.

 

Fun-fact: There's something wrong with the port nav-light of the P-51.

It's shown ABOVE the wing once you have any distance to the airplane. A nice way of IDing the airplane, though...

This is why i never open bombbay in A 20 too early. And that is a bitch. Because they drag and slow the plane and you have to adjust speedsetting in bombaim. That idiotic light that turns on when it open is a beacon

These navlights are like some kind of cloaking device. You see a plane below you but you can't ID it. When you zoom the view to get a better look the navlights get brighter and you see less of the shape.

I suspect that some people just use this as an exploit
