Sunlight from behind VC

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to have VC shadows in the NGX, or any plane for the matter? For example, duiring a sunset at any altitude, when flying east the sunlight goes right through the back wall of the cockpit and reflects off the panel like so: fEvY4.jpg

I don't think it streams through the actual cockpit wall. It's simply an ambient light effect. If it was the actual sun coming through, the light intensity would be much higher not to mention you would also see the light reflected off the flat glass of the PFD, ND etc.

Shade does not protect from this FSX (and previous) limit.Any aircraft will do the same when in the same condition. The only difference is between airplanes using fsx shadows (those seen in dx 10 preview mode) but the complex ones doesn't use them.

I have shade, no idea how to use it to eliminate this effect when there's a wall behind me.

As far as I remember, Shade only increases contrast (highlight-to-shadow-ratio). Self-shadowing flight-deck geometry is not possible in FSX. Look to the DCS-series of simulators for that.
