S!
Exactly. Displacement (the raindrop effect) is another cheat for refraction and they don't have any philosophical problem including that in the sim. We're not building Focke Wulfs here, we're simulating what they look like. (And sound like and behave like, but none of those are affected in any way by the 3D models.) We're free to fudge the model in any way that helps it look closer to reality, and reducing the thickness of the windscreen frames, particularly the side and bottom, would look a lot closer to reality than what we have now. On the *interior cockpit model only*, of course.

S!

What on earth are you talking about????

Here are a few screenshots, from games i played many years ago that got the FW-190 cockpit right. If you think this are photoshop got get the Classic Hangar's FW190 pack for FSX and see it for yourself.








It's not rocket science. This thick modeled bar was proven before the shadow of a doubt to be wrong.
I just don't understand how, in 2019, someone, who's charging sixty bucks for a single FW-190 A8 can make this kind of major modeling mistakes. I understand doing this modeling mistake in 2008, but not in 2019.


Heck even the old Targetware got the FW-190 right fifteen years ago.
I found this screenshot on the net. I don't have any, but I played it quite a bit.

I think a lot of the problems come from that wreck they have in the museum in Moscow. A lot of things are wrong in that wreck and using it as reference ruined another game before this one.

Anyway. here's a photo of a real 190 from a museum that shows what a dramatic difference that armored glass makes in dropping the view through the windscreen.



Look at the the bulges above the machine guns, on the cowling. See how low is the right one, compared to the left one, because is seen through the armored glass?

I also have issues with the green armor glass. It's way too green. That armor glass was made by Carl ZEIS!!!!!! It's a lens. Another bug introduced by museum wrecks with wrong cockpit glass.
