Thank you so much for the update, Martin, although I think I'll actually keep all the lights on even during the day. I saw this historical vid of a Kai Tak landing from cockpit during the day, and you can actually see all the lights are on even during the day. Is there a way we can keep this option if we have to reinstall later on please?

Maybe some airports turn runways light On for 24 hours because is Winter time and little dark from heavy clouds.

The lights should come on if there is fog during daytime.
You can tweak this by loading into notepad:
KaiTak/scripts/vhhx_fthalos1.lua
and edit this line:
if Visibility >= 8200 and TOD == 1 then
setting 8200 higher increases the sensitivity to fog, for example setting it to 99999 should result in lights always on.

Thanks so much for looking into everything for us, Martin!
