I've been having this issue for a while now. Whenever I am flying above the clouds, the aircraft is usually dark unless I am viewing really close up or at certain angles. Attached are two photos to demonstrate this. Can someone help me figure out how to get rid of these shadows above the clouds? I noticed that when I get rid of the clouds completely, the plane looks normal. I do not have any weather/cloud/lighting mods.

Do you use HDR? We have a known bug: Cloud Shadows on Aircraft at High Altitude (HDR Only). This has not been fixed yet, but it appears to go away if HDR is turned off, as another temporary work around.

Yes, I do. I will test that out. Thank you for the quick response. I apologize if the answer was already posted somewhere, but I could not find it. Any idea as to when the HDR problem will be resolved?
