    [INVESTIGATING]TGP poor image, contrast control

    TGP image in F-16 is much worse than in other aircraft. It has low dynamic range (whites are gray, not white) and the contrast adjustment does not really adjust contrast.

    Same mission, same distance, same targeting pod in the Hog, Hornet and Viper. In the Viper even the target cross and north arrow are dark gray while they are white in the other aircraft.


    You can try to manually play with gain control, but it will only make parts of the image even darker. Though it will help somewhat with making the tanks stand out against the background.

    Another possible issue is that the contrast rocker (bottom right) does not adjust contrast, but something else. Instead of making "brights brighter and blacks blacker" evenly across the range, the contrast increase makes everything black except the whitest spots, which now become white. And the opposite when clicking the other way.



    While changing contrast on a grayscale image should work like this (if it is really a contrast adjustment):

    +1 Agreed, I'm not really liking the TPOD image in the F16 at the moment.

      There is already a thread about F16 TGP

        That's a different problem with FLIR image in all DCS aircraft, since a year or so. ED can't reproduce, therefore problem is unsolvable.

          This has been an issue ever since the TGP update. It's sad, but I actually miss the old TGP at this point because it wasn't nearly as buggy and was a whole lot more visible.

            Possibly waiting a new FLIR system to be dropped in?

              It gets worse when you have destroyed a target that is on fire, the whole area around the burning get completely washed out.

                +1. If there is smoke around the target area, it will mass up the whole TGP, poor AGC, and even MGC can't tweak it back.

                    Any updates? The TGP is very hard to use at night because the contrast is so much worse than it was before the changes made to the pod.
