What did I do? Canopy glass now opaque to VC shadows!

Recommended Posts

Fixer V2.4 (haven't got around to installing 2.5 yet...)


I just noticed this today and can't seem to get it working again. In direct sunlight, I get shadows cast in the cockpit in my aircraft (those set up for VC shadows). But when I close the canopy, the entire cockpit is in a shadow. Happening to every small military jet that I've tried this on (four so far) that all normally work fine - so I assume they are all hosed.


Last thing I did was set the ForceVCShadowMap=1 in my aircraft.cfg as per Steve's blog posting a few weeks back. I removed that today in an attempt to fix this issue, along with trying a number of other settings to see if I could get back to where I was, but no joy.


Ideas anyone?


UPDATE: Okay, found the cause. I had checked 'Legacy Aircraft Self Shadow' when I turned on the ForceVCShadowMap feature. When I unclicked that, all is well again.
