I still think, that it's not the scenery but P3Dv5 that is the problem. If the bug is still there, there is nothing FT can do about it.

Experienced this again. Looks like FlyTampa is literally leaving users in the dark. :)))))
You could try this quick fix attached, I think it will do the trick now.
Extract the FlyTampa folder, and drop it into P3D root folder (replace)

Thanks. Unfortunately, that did not work. Just tried a test flight from FRA-CPH at night.

Could you please check that the patch has been correctly installed?
The patch should give you a new file, created in FlyTampa\Copenhagen\effects, named 'flytampa_DynamicFlood_ekch_white_ctrl.fx' and a replacement file in FlyTampa\Copenhagen\scenery , named 'ekch_dynlights.bgl' with modified date of 21.12.2020 at 21.49

Yes, the new FX file and the .bgl with the new timestamp were correctly placed

Replicated this flight with the updated lights and they appear on arrival. Other things to check, P3D version?

Has anyone else figured out a solution to this?

update: I believe I fixed it after letting my Prepar3d.cfg rebuild itself. This makes zero sense since I didn't change anything related to dyn lighting except increasing the max point #'s. Oh well, that's P3D.

Never mind. That solution only works once and then it just breaks again.

I have this issue at Corfu also. If you load in to the airport it's fine but flying in from elsewhere it's not.

This happens with other providers scenery too so it appears to be a p3dv5 problem but no sign of fixing it

Are there fixes for other sceneries?

After MANY hours of searching for similar problems that I had with my sceneries (even with controller files), I have found a solution that works well in most cases.



The controller files should include:



[Library Effect]
Lifetime=5
Version=1.00
Radius=200

Priority=0



[controller.0]
lifetime=0.0, 0.0
type=3
distance=4000.00, 4000.00
delay=80000.00, 80000.00

.....



The effect file that the controller is poiting to, should be in Version=2.00.



In addition, it is suggested to have separate bgl file for the dynamic lights, included in airport scenery folder.



Hope this helps FlyTampa to fix it.
