P3dV4 cockpit textures appearance problem

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I transitioned from FSX tp P3dV4.3.  Purchased of course the 737 NGX P3d version. I am using a Dell u3415 with "standard" factory calibrated settings. In making the transition, I note significant adverse changes in terms of the appearance of cockpit textures between the two sims, making the visual experience in P3d  worse.  By day,  if I turn off HDR, the gray cockpit textures are much darker than FSX and I have trouble reading the knob labels etc. it is almost to the point that I have to turn on the dome light to see things in the cockpit even in daylight. if I have HDR on, the textures can wash out making it hard to read the labels as well. I did find that turning off bloom altogether, and increasing saturation to 1.3 seems to allow a reasonable compromise in terms of making cockpit textures more reasonable and readable. But even then the labels on the knobs are much clearer to me in FSX.  But I also note that with HDR on and even with my settings changed as above, that the magenta color of the flight director is so faded/desaturated  in color that I have to fly with the display enlarged so I can see the flight director lines.

 

I also note that the during dusk and dawn with HDR on the cockpit textures take on a blue unnatural tint, and for that matter so does the exterior of the airplane making it appear unnatural and odd looking.

 

I read that the new 747-800 has an adjustment within the PMDG FMC Simulator menu to counter HDR problems. I did not find such an adjustment with my 737. Will there be an update to the 737 to address these issues? I was wondering how other folks, [especially those who may be using my monitor] who notice these issues cope with them?

 

Thanks,
