LOWI Innsbruck no runway lights


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have no night runway lights at Innsbruck.

So far I have tried..

  • Verify Files (in Central 4)
  • uninstall and reinstall
  • Install to either ORBX library or P3dV4 folder (both tried).
  • uninstall/reinstall P3DV4 Client.
  • delete Prepar3D.cfg
  • updated to latest graphics drivers

All used to be OK until recently but now I am stumped!

Could you give me anything else to try, please?

Hi together,

it seems I am facing a similar issue. LOWI runway lights do not appear until I nearly touch the runway on a night approach. I tried to change the settings for the airport, no effect.


I use Win7, p3d v4.5, Orbx Germany South, North, trees, LOWI, all up-to-date.


I hope, somebody my be able to give us some advice on this topic.


Thank you very much

I have now tried..

Uninstalling  via Central 4 and deleting all temp and ORBX downloads.

uninstalled SODE.

Deleted all references to LOWI in the sim drive.

Uninstalled and re-configured ORBX LOWI via Central 4 


Still no lights. There are runway edge lights there but they are extremely dim. The “rabbit” lights work.

Suggestions  very welcome!

It has been my opinion that after the recent updates, Central 4 was working correctly, but I nevertheless took the plunge just now and uninstalled it and re-installed Central 3, and re-installed LOWI from a pre-existing ORBX download.

NOW - the LOWI runway lights work!

Subsequently I re-installed Central 4 - and the lights now DON’T work, even after configuration.


I find all this rather disheartening - I like the Central 4 interface and the ease of use - but not if it isn’t installing correctly.

Some suggestions on why this might have happened would be appreciated, and I must admit I wonder if my other ORBX scenery is not installed correctly, but life is short..:-(

I have found the problem with the  runway lights, (which were also absent in a number of other ORBX sceneries).

 I also had an issue with ESSA Stockholm ground textures, and found a reference in the forum to “ObjectFlow”not working. I uninstalled it in Central and re-installed in my chosen ORBX folder. Both issues fixed!

Here endeth a lot of hours trying to sort it out!

It may be that this is a fix for a number of strange issues?

i certainly have no idea why it wasn’t working in the first place, but the issue started when I changed from Central 3 to the new Central.

Hope this helps some folk..
