Honestly, that is a very disappointing reply and fix. The real thing does not have a "special options tab" hidden somewhere in the jet that allows it to perform its primary role of night attack aircraft, why is this solution considered acceptable?


I realize some things are hard to translate to DCS and require an extra bit outside of the game (like the issue with the Mirage's TDC). This problem is not one of those things, not even close.

Like I said, Message Zues he is the coder and would be best suited to speak with regarding this matter

Are there more things not implemented in the Early Access version that will never be implemented in the final version?

I mean who would have thought that this kind of thing would be degraded to a slider in the special options when they bought the early access version. Sure, the description probably did not say we where supposed to be able to adjust it, but it probably did not say we where supposed to extend the landing gear either.

Basically this means that they feel that in the definition of a full fidelity module, working adjusting of brightness for displays is not included so if they like they can just skip implementing it during the Early Access period. There must be some kind of basic requirements for what the finished product should include in order to be sold as a full fidelity module in the ED store.

Could RAZBAM provide a list of similar features that have been canceled for implementation in the final version since the module was released as Early Access?

If I remember, your task was to communicate with the forum on RAZBAMs behalf, I thought I saw that in some old post.

Surely as a representative, you must be able to relay this feedback to the team?

Ask Larry, i dont have the answer and the easiest way to get it would be to ask Zues

So before and after we fly a night mission we must go into options in DCS and change the brightness, and also not take long flights that go from day to night.

Hello folks.
Please allow me to explain:
1. The Night/Day switch in the MPCD is working. If you set it to night, it reduces display brightness to 60% of current value.
2. The slider idea was for you to determine how much the brightness will be reduced when you activate the night switch; 10, 20, 60% of set value. You don't like it, then it is not going to happen.

Also, we are looking into other causes that may be affecting the brightness when the night switch is active.

New night mode factor value.
Please be aware that using the moving map with the NVG is not recommended.
