Default Cockpit Instruments Blurry with NVG's On.

I started flying the Diximude Campaign again the other day (for the first time since it was released).
Back when I flew this campaign originally, there was no issue reading any of the cockpit instruments/controls etc with the NVG's activated.

Now it is almost impossible to read anything inside the cockpit.

This will make an already difficult flight very dangerous considering you must fly at night within 10m of the ground while maintaining a flight path along the waypoints without varying more than 100 feet or meters to either side.
This will be very difficult without being able to read ANYTHING inside the cockpit.

Is this something that will SOON be addressed ?
Is this a known Bug ?


I might as well be flying with VR where everything is blurry !

As has been addressed before this is realistic. NVGs have a set focus that is adjusted by the pilot and usually the pilot adjusts the focus well outside the aircraft so that they can see. NVGs are not like cameras and cannot focus automatically. Usually the pilot just looks underneath the goggles to see all the instruments. For VR I highly recommend Tacca’s NVG mod (formerly Frenchy’s NVG mod) this Mod makes the use of NVGs in VR a much more realistic as usable experience.

I guess since there is no way to focus, I'd rather see the NV in front of the right eye only (i.e. to the right of center view) leaving the left eye clear to read the instruments.

I find it basically impossible to maintain maximum 10m altitude at 180 km/hr over water with or without NV ... but definitely not With NV On.

I wonder if there is a way to reposition the NVG lens/view to have it more to the right ?

the nvgs are focused to infinity in reality. I have seen picrures taken on a ch47f night ops and the dash was not focused at all. I really like the fact that they are not focusing the cockpit anymore. If really needed i switch the nvgs off. Other then that it is pure practise.

And actually with most modern cockpit setups the lighting is filtered out by the NVGs anyway.

Again I highly recommend Tacca’s mod for the NVGs it really is good and allows you to move the NVGs and resize them how you like.

I got me a whole new level of respect for RL NVG goggle night flyers once the new DCS night goggs came out. I had read about the infinity focus thing in books but now we got it too.
I have not flown night flights much but I found turning on the instrument lights and looking at the instruments under the NVG viewing circle worked... It didn't work great... but it worked.

I am a track IR user by the way so it was easy to tilt my head up whilst looking under the NVGs.

Yup. A LINK/URL would be helpful.
I just searched for it in the "User Files" using all the parameters I can think of.
No Joy.
But I'd love to try it because starting with Mis 5 in Dixmude, the campaign becomes impossible for me.

I don’t think it’s on the user files it’s just on the ED forum https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=151646
