Objects with a Glass Material Become Invisible when Clicked

Hello Microsoft/Asobo,

We noticed that objects with a translucent material (such as the Glass material) become invisible when clicked in the simulation instead of being highlighted in blue.

For example, this is noticeable in our aircraft model when clicking a translucent sunvisor in the cockpit.

As a workaround, we’ve added the parameter <NO_HIGHLIGHT_NODE_ID>True</NO_HIGHLIGHT_NODE_ID> in our template for the glass object not to disappear when clicked.

Note: In this case, we are using the ASOBO_INSTRUMENT_Base_Template as the basic element for the sunvisor mouse input and animation.

Anything we missed?

Thank you.
