Rewind to 8:50

It is possible make such glass reflection like in this cockpit? right window.
I try many times in eech, but even when set reflectioon to 50% this looks good, but lost visiblity.windows are either dark or milky
how i have to do it correctly? Do you have to use texture for reflection?how to avoid losing transparency?I do not need an entire guide,only one two-sentence .

I don't think it's possible with the current engine

It's possible for sure. You need to put standard texture with painted reflection on window and make it transparent.

ok, a little more detailing.yes i know its possible make reflection keyboard, mfd switches in window glass.this is easy, dont need them.
I want strong reflections of the entire windshield of the entire cockpit when changing direction.strong white reflections, without any specific details.something similar is possible
if change reflection over 50%.but then the glass is milky, very little to see.how to do it, with 100% visibility?

yes, here example
front window- normal glass bright and 100% visiblity.
Left windows- 50% reflection and 100% luminosity.
Much darken.
Why reflection cause worse visiblity? how avoid this? Any tips please.

What is rendered when you set reflection to 100%? Is it texture?

Will check later,but i suppose not. I dont use any texture. I try also other cockpit.maybe this bug is with new cockpit lighting in apache.

as I said apache cockpit has some bug in reflections,.and probably not just that.
3 reflections 100% 50% and 15,
In new lighting mod is other than all others cockpits .
the lower version is from blackshark,but in version 1.161 apache looks just as well.



And the question - the bottom three windows - why the picture is not 100% transparent, and how to avoid it?

have you tried to place this surface, with same texture in different helicopter (Comanche for example)? you will know for sure if it's lighting issue

yes"the lower version is from blackshark,but in version 1.161 apache looks just as well."

i made the same surface in apache and blackshark, And test in your new lighting mod,and on 1.16 .1
in 1.16 .1 all reflections is ok, even in apache.
in lighting mod only apache has black reflection, others good.
but i have no texture, its only reflection.

ok, it's a little messy wink
the question is still up-to-date, in the picture we can see three levels of reflections
100% 50 and 15
in 100% visiblity is very dark.
I want visiblity from 15% but with reflection 100%.
its possible? What im doing wrong? Reflection need texture for correct work?I need dependent on movement
reflections. Please...

yeah, it's possible that it happen because of different scene rendering code. I'll check it myself then.

it's pretty obvious that 100% reflection gives non-transparent mirror. remember that it's not natural reflection, but non-transparent texture, so you can't reach exactly same effect like in the example video.

is it normal behavior when I upload to the layout scene a complicated cockpit like ka52 takes up to ~15 minutes?
is there any magic option that speeds up the loading?i have good ram and cpu.

If you select the top disc, then do cut and paste to separate it from the sides, and try again. I'm not sure about the pipe.

You could try these tutorials...

Hi,

before you use rail extrude make UV map for extruded element (from side). Then after rail extrude you get nice UV map. Only put seamless texture ant thats it.
