Lighting Problem P3DV4

Recommended Posts


I have a lighting problem that I am unable to resolve. When using environment force, tomatoshade, or no shaders mods at all, the image while in spot view looks good. When I switch to the cockpit view and then back to external spot, the image is washed out and dull(gray) looking. Then, I press the escape key or access any of the menu options, the colors reset to what they looked like before I switched to the cockpit view. So, something about switching my to cockpit view is causing my lighting settings to become washed out. Any ideas what the reason could be? Below are photos taken at the same location. Photos one and three look correct to me, while photos 2 and 4 are washed out after switching to the cockpit view before switching back to spot.

Are you using Skyforce also? If so only run EnvironmentForce, it will interact with sky force automatically no need to open both.

Make sure both are up to date and then delete shaders folder and restart.
