Over exposed outside when in cockpit view

Issue exists since release

The outside scenery is overexposed when in cockpit view. It is especially visible in VR where our head is moving a lot (forward/backward). It affects the entire scenery but is especially visible on clouds.

Please refer to the uploaded video for further details:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start any flight with a few clouds
  2. Move your head forward/backward
  3. Observe the overexposed clouds that become completely white

yes 100% it burns my eyes.


It’s something to do with automatic eye adaptation. If the center of your FOV is pointing at a dark place the brightness will automatically increase. Very annoying, and one of the reasons why I don’t really like the VR in MSFS that much.
