How can I get rid of reflection on cockpit glass???

Recommended Posts

Hello Gang!I find the glass reflection inside the cockpit a little annoying when trying to loo outside, especially at night. How can I get rid of that glass reflection?Thanks!Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert

There's a file on AVSIM by John Standard that gets rid of the reflections in the default planes. Works really well and is simple to install. Don't recall the name, maybe search under aircraft reflections.Lee

Just call me a "realism Junky" I guess. At night, if you have your panel lights on in a real plane, you can barely see out the side windows.

Don't recall the name, maybe search under>aircraft reflections.No need to download files! If you do download that file you will indeed have no reflections, but still a greyish window. The most simple way to get rid of reflections is to go the the Texture map of the plane and RENAME the reflection.dds file (I'd call it something like reflections.ddsOFF)! That's it! No reflections, no grey, but a clear an unobstructed view! If you want the reflection back later on just rename the .dds file again! Some things are so simple... ;)BTW I always rename all reflection.dss files for all my planes, but funnily enough I did not do that with my beloved Dornier Do-27: but that's because those windows don't have those very unrealistic reflections (unrealistic because the reflections don't move and are simple WRONG too!) but the Do-27 windows are just DIRTY. Which looks VERY realistic! I can see even less than with the default planes WITH reflections, but it looks so REAL!
