GLASS vs Humidity/Low Vis

Hi.

There is a problem with the glass material display in humid / low visibility weather. The material stays dark like it is not influenced by the shader. Could you please confirm that this is a bug and if so, that there is a chance for it to be fixed in the future?

Hello.

Are the meshes on which you apply glass material separated objects?
Any particular reason why you use the MASK alpha mode over the BLEND one?
Can you show here the gltf file content regarding that material?
What Blender exporter are you using?

Also, if you can provide me with a sample gltf + texture producing the bug, I'll use it to investigate.

Regards,
Sylvain

Good afternoon Sylvain!

Thank you so much for a reply.

We use Blender 3.0 with a MSFSToolkit version 0.40.2.5

Window's glass are separate mesh in one large blender scene containing terminal.

I am tried to choise different alpha modes, but result is the same.

Source files ready for export included by the link below.

Glass issue source files

For reproduce problem you must place object into MSFS,

Set humidity to maximum into weather panel.

Set the sun behind the object. (at the same time you will see object and sun)

With the best regards!

I was able to reproduce the problem and one of our graphics dev will have a look. I'll keep you updated when we figure it out.

I have seen the same issue on the glass of airport ground vehicles that come with the sim. That was 6+ months ago so it may or may not have been fixed on those ground vehicles since then.

Sylvain, just FYI, please note that when exporting via 3ds Max, the issue is exactly the same. It does not seem to be the exporter's problem.

Thank you Sylvain, looking forward to a potential solution.
