Considering that most pilots have daytime jobs and can only log on at
nightime I doubt IVAO would force everyone to fly in darkness at the time.

Next question springs to mind as I was about to start a farm strip
assignment, having finished watching the Inspector Lindley episode. I'd
normally use the current weather but set the time to something in
daylight. Is this still possible, when on IVAO, or will it highlight the
fact that I appear to be flying VFR during the hours of darkness?
