Default Does the night flying U/C blind look right?

It doesn't look right to me. Does it look like this to everyone? Has it always looked like this?

Normal and blind pulled down. The blind looks like a graphic glitch.

No key assigned. Front dash category:
U/C Indicator Blind

Neither did I, assigned the wrong key to the throttle switch (wanting to be able to shut off *everything* battery connected). Never seen before.

Didn't even know that was there. But, have you tried at night? Or even daylight, of course. Looks like some kind of paper or fabric sheet covering the light so in the dark wouldn't blind you but still making gear lights visible through. But, does it work?

Maybe asking for a translucent sheet in something nobody would use was too much .

Not true. It was modelled, and it is supposed to work. It was translucent in DCS 1.5. You could make out the UP light even during daylight.

As I didn't know it was there never tried before, but I did a couple days ago, and yes, it's a piece of fabric, and no, it's not translucent right now.
