VC shadows and cockpit screens

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have an issue regarding the vc shadows. When I have the sun behind the aircraft, the cockpit screens get a huge brightness decrease and the lisibility is reduced a lot.

Maybe I forgot to do something..

Thank you very much !

Firstly, thanks for supplying your order id.

As you said in your email the solution is to tick the don't shade MFDs option. However I slightly disagree with your comment that as a negative you lose the shadowing on the MFD.   

If you test with a  desk light and a monitor you will see that you don't really see shadows on a display.

In real life is that the display is effectively a CFL light . 

Now what does happen is that direct sunlight illuminates the surface layer and thus makes the display harder to read.

That could be reproduced but it would require a change to the textures used in the model.
