Actually, turning off damage really isn’t a work around since these crevices often cause aircraft to do flips and turn over on its back, which would ruin the “perfect” landing.
The workaround of turning off photo imaging is the only solution atthis time. Asobo hasn’t mentioned, as far as I know, any intention of fixing this issue.
It would be beyond foolish to invest in a long flight and not use a “workaround” and run a landing. Investing a few seconds to switch off and on a feature seems solid advice imho, UNTIL ASOBO decides to fix it.
