hello friends,

I have a big problem with PAPI lights in Dubai. There are no PAPI lights during landing in any of the 4 runways (day or night).

I can see them only on ground without any brightness.

Can you help me? I can't land without them

What is going on guys?
No one can help me?
I attach a picture in order to see my problem with PAPI lights. They remain white and sharp, no matter what my height is.


Anyone can find a solution?

Try the attached file please.

Save "" to Addon Scenery/FlyTampa-Dubai/texture/

overwriting the existing file.

I increased the intensity to a point that makes them look too extreme on my system. Note this change affects all runway lights, not just PAPI.

Let me know if you see a difference

Dear Martin,

First, thank you very much for your reply. I replaced the file as you instructed, by as you can see from the pictures below the result is far away from the solution.

I don't understand where the problem is. I have also Fly tampa Athens & Marteen without any problems.

Problem SOLVED.
I deleted fsx.cfg and I opened FSX in order to build a new fsx.cfg
Now all lights working perfectly.
I don't know what caused this to happen. What ever was wrong inside fsx.cfg, no matter. Now it's working perfect.

Perhaps you had
Code: Select all
MipBias=6 (or higher)
in fsx.cfg?

A friend suggested this as the culprit and he was right..

What is the recommended mipbias value ? I loose my runway and taxiway lights when using FSPS tweaks and trying to figure out which tweak is the culprit.

In FSX, I don't know what the default MipBias is because the line MipBias=? gets added by "tweaks", its not there at all by default.
