    Hej!
    I Sverige och Norge blir mörkt ute under juletid. Mellan kl. 15.00 - 15.30 är redan mörkt, men i simulator tänds lamporna kl 17.00. Finns det nåt man kan gå inställningar ändra på att lamporna tändas i tid?

    Hey!
    In Sweden and Norway it gets dark outside during Christmas time. Between 3.00 Pm - 3.30 Pm is already dark, but in the simulator the lights are on at 5.00 Pm. Is there anything you can go settings change that the lights are turned on in time?

    I don't think this is user controllable.

    This is what it looks like when the lights come on.

    AFAIK the Station light get their info from the Time of Day file present in each route.

    I think the problem you have a Scandinavian Route but you have a normal EU Time of Day file.
    Have a look in the Route file at the RouteProperties.xml
    In that it mentions the Time Of Day files

    For Example In Keil - Lubeck it has this
    <WinterSkyBlueprint>
    <iBlueprintLibrary-cAbsoluteBlueprintID>
    <BlueprintSetID>
    <iBlueprintLibrary-cBlueprintSetID>
    <Provider d:type="cDeltaString">DTG</Provider>
    <Product d:type="cDeltaString">LubeckKiel</Product>
    </iBlueprintLibrary-cBlueprintSetID>
    </BlueprintSetID>
    <BlueprintID d:type="cDeltaString">TimeOfDay\Winter.xml</BlueprintID>
    </iBlueprintLibrary-cAbsoluteBlueprintID>
    </WinterSkyBlueprint>

    Then have a look at the time of day file
    In the Keil - Lubeck route it has this
    <cSkyInfoBP>
    <Season d:type="cDeltaString">SEASON_WINTER</Season>
    <SkyTimeInfo>
    <cSkyTimeInfo>
    <InfoSun>
    <sSkyBodyInfo>
    <RiseTime>
    <sTimeOfDay>
    <_iHour d:type="sInt32">8</_iHour>
    <_iMinute d:type="sInt32">35</_iMinute>
    <_iSeconds d:type="sInt32">0</_iSeconds>
    </sTimeOfDay>
    </RiseTime>
    <SetTime>

    <sTimeOfDay>
    <_iHour d:type="sInt32">16</_iHour>
    <_iMinute d:type="sInt32">2</_iMinute>
    <_iSeconds d:type="sInt32">0</_iSeconds>
    </sTimeOfDay>
    </SetTime>
    <AzimuthAngle d:type="sFloat32" d:alt_encoding="000000E0A370F53F" d:precision="string">1.34</AzimuthAngle>
    </sSkyBodyInfo>
    </InfoSun>

    From the info it shows Sun Rise at 08.25 and Sun Set at 16.02

    Find the Time of Day File for the route you have and amend the Sun times for your location - also the Moon times.
    Make a copy of the TimeOfDay file as other routes might/will use it

    Hey!
    It turned out well with winter time and summer time.
    But not for the lights that come on. There must be a file that needs to change the time of the lights. Which?
