2D Panel called "Light Sensor"

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

 

           Noticing something strange here.  As I look up right under the "Flights" menu in FSX I noticed a little white dot.  I can expand this dot which stretches out to be a really distorted MCP.  Can someone please tell me what this is?  In window mode it has a title called "Light Sensor"  Also I noticed during one flight that my 2d panels when I would open them such as the FMC are extremely dark.  Not the CRT Screen but the actual FMS itself.  Anything?

 

Thanks everyone!

I have the same window in the P3D version. Google pmdg light sensor. It seems to be in all the PMDG airplanes or at least many.

It is a light sensor as explained in post #4. I have seen it on the MD-11, NGX, 777, and the now the 744 V3. What Peter Kelberg and David Lee say is very true - don't mess with or you will regret it I know it's tempting to put the cursor on it and start left clicking and right clicking and expand it to see what happens. I did like 7 years ago. I don't remember what happened now. I do remember it wasn't nice.

However concerning VR: as you cant use 2D windows in native VR anyway just set the 2D transparency setting to 100%. 

And for the future: there‘s no point in being angry all the time. Ask, suggest, you might achieve much more than when you come in, grumble and leave with a red head.

A fix was provided with the 747-400 update at the time the 747-8 expansion was released (2 months ago). If you still see the white box I guess you have not installed this update?

Since this is the 747 forum I assume you were talking about the 747. If you were talking about the other PMDG aircraft, the above post also explains how you can manually fix this for them as well.
