HI guys and girls,
Well while on approach to moscow (DME) at night time on the Sim I wondered whether all the simmers here prefer landing at night or day?
Personally i prefer landing at night time, my distance perception is alot better then and today while doing a night time flight i done my best ever landing, nose wheel centerline, by watching the Alt roughly 50Fpm landing and barely a float.
So which do you prefer night or day time landings?
You cant have your cake and eat it... What the hells the point in having it then!!!

That can be the case in an actual aircraft as well. One of my flight instructors gave me the tip to just watch the end of the runway and let the plane sink onto the runway. As a result, my night landings (in a real aircraft) are much smoother then most of my day landings.
As far as FS goes, I prefer the daytime landings because I like to look out the window and watch the scenery go by.

Quoting Longhornmaniac (Reply 8): My only complaint about that is, they're all in sync with each other, which is unrealistic and frustrating. If there is a way to get that sorted out, then it'd be amazing!
