Partial Volumetric Lighting

it is the same problem that is described here


Same here, Oculus Quest 2 link (, RTX3090 (511.79)

@OlieTsubasa443 Varjo Aero and Reverb G2, 10900KF 3090 511.23. Partial shaft left eye, full shaft right eye. Also notice the blank triangles in the right eye shaft.


same problem here using the Reverb G2.

I hope this gets addressed before the upcoming sim update release. This is what Beta testing is for.

It HAS to be addressed before the SU release because this is unplayable in VR as the issue is not even the same between left and right eye.

Please only post bugs that are new in this build, and tag your post with #pc and/or #xbox.

Are you on Xbox, Steam or Microsoft Store version?

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?
Developer mode active, only to bring the slider for icing down to zero when icing forms for no reason. I don’t actively interact with it otherwise.

Brief description of the issue:
There’s a weird polygon that forms on the windscreen when flying in cloud. When outside cloud, it disappears, but when in cloud, it comes up and looks WEIRD.

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:

Detailed steps to reproduce the issue encountered:
Fly the Caravan at night and pop in and out of clouds.

PC specs and/or peripheral set up if relevant:

  • RTX 2070 Super
  • Ryzen 7 3700X
  • 64GB RAM
  • Graphic settings are basically ultra of ultra on all metrics.

Not sure if it’s the same thing, but I noticed while skimming through the tops of clouds today, in the external view I got a real strange “wave effect” along the clouds in front an both sides of the plane. I didn’t get a video of it, but it looked almost like a bow wave as I went through the clouds.
You might want to check the external view if you see this effect again and see if you’re seeing something similar.

Looks similar to another issue reported in the SU8 Beta VR board:

Are you in the beta as well?

Not me; I ain’t got VR

I am in the beta and have the problem also in 2D
what driver version do you use I use 511.79

I use 471.96 on my RTX2070 Super

thanks for the info
it’s not the driver I tested it with version 457.30 same problem
you use a mod eg New Light ?
I had this problem with this mod with the FBW A320
am just a test to perform without mod and could no longer reproduce the problem will perform another test later with the CRJ and then let you know

I don’t use light mods or anything, just the regular community mods that only affect their limited scope (e.g., FBW A320, liveries, Working Title stuff, etc.), no worldwide mods.

unfortunately it is still present even without MOD just a bit toned down because the lighting is not so bright . Why so few users see it is a mystery to me either they never fly at night or only in fine weather

When flying at night its a strange big star object (shadow) appering in the window of the plane when flying through clouds. didnt see this before the beta.

Same issue as here it seems:

And yes, it’s been introduced in beta SU 8.

Correct, same thing! Only catch is that this is happening without VR…
