I love the new reflections, dirt, scratches, etc.... It reminds me of the 172 I rent in real life.

I like the new windscreen treatment too; really helps the immersion factor. 

It really bugs me when developers go to so much trouble replicating every fine detail of a plane down to the last rivet and then don't bother to put in anything that looks like glass in the windows.

Same with the cub, particularly the yellowish reflections when you're flying a non-yellow repaint.

You can always edit the textures to be a bit more/completely transparent with Photoshop or Gimp. X-plane is a tweakers paradise. 😃

I sent a bug report about this today.  Not so much about the windshield as the side windows continuing to show the reflections of taxi lights until about 3000 feet.  That and the seats reflect in the windshield even with all lights turned down and completely dark in the cockpit.  Reflections? Yes, but, if used, they need some refinement or a choice of amounts.

You probably have reflections set to the lowest settings in the rendering options. In that setting the reflection content is updated very rarely. Increase the reflections setting one notch to get dynamic reflections whose content updates (almost) in real time.

Thanks...   I'll try that.

EDIT -  You are right!  That is the answer.  Now... How do I get those 10 FRs back?  Just kidding.  It did drop but fortunately, I've got plenty to play with.  I'm down to about 30/32  at 1000 feet over downtown New York City.

The reflections are near perfect in VR, it really gives the sense of a rounded windshield when in VR.

Agree. Also if you watch the first emergency landing in the Cessna in this RL video, the reflections are reminiscent of XP I thought.

Yes, and now that manuthie has given me the hint, that IS what it looks like!
