Went in for a flight on the Xbox this evening and the sim seems washed out…colors were horrible. Haven’t really noticed it before. I checked my TV settings and everything was as it should be. After an hour or so, I quite the sim and went back to the Xbox menu and my eyes were almost burned out with the vivid color!! My eyes had obviously adjusted and were then strained when I came out of the sim.
Are there any color settings within the game?? Anyone else experience this?
Did you try different settings on your TV?
No idea what you have, but modern sets have multiple options.
Vivid, movie, game, thx and many more, not to mention separate controls for hue, saturation, temp, custom setting, etc…
I’ve noticed in certain areas and especially if you fly during midday with few or no cloud cover that this washed out look seems apparent. If you go to an area more rich in color variations and either fly early in the morning or later in the evening, and also make sure there is some cloud cover providing shadows, then that’s when you see the real beauty the graphics of the sim are capable of.
Was about to say the same thing. OP check your TV settings it can help a bit. My Panasonic TV has that Game and Vivid mode but I actually found the regular movie mode with reduced color is best. The Vivid mode is a bit too loud and so is Game. Everything looks highlighter neon. Play with the sliders and you’ll find a good setting.
