Default Request for cleaner canopy glass

Dear Razbam,

with the new cockpit coming up, is it possible to add (at least as an selectable option) a clearer canopy glass,more specifically with less reflections from the inside ?
As it is now, if you turn certain canopy parts even into slightly the sun, entire areas of the canopy become totally reflective and you completely lose visual contact with anything in those areas.Not sure whether its supposed to be grime or scratches but it
makes it very difficult to keep a tally on an enemy during bfm.
Even with lensflare off the effect is very strong.


Thank you very much,


Snappy

You probably have the shadows set on "flat".
Set at least to low and it will solve the "totally reflective"

I have to agree with Snappy. The canopy is very reflective also the HUD glass up close is scratched.

Not to be difficult, but I'd love the canopy to be more scratchy. If you have been in DCS F-14 the effect is amazing. I tried the mod I found on the board but could not get it to work.

It looks closer to real canopies on real jet' videos like this!!! I think it is great!

Hey Jojo,


thank you very much! That was a good tip! After setting shadows to low , the reflective effect on the canopy is much reduced and keeping a tally on the opponent is easier.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Snappy
