Thanks for the answer, I think it very exaggerated it is not normal nature behave for sun position it is suddenly become dark and it happened in clear sky without any clouds. I think it's  x-plane bug.

thanks again

Hi Avivps

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK.

I think you'll find that the cockpit going dark and then light again is quite normal, it's just the aircrafts location and position in relation to the sun and/or clouds, where areas of the cockpit are covered in shadow.

Mine does exactly the same thing and whilst it seems a bit exaggerated at times, it appears to be quite normal.

For that reason, I always have my instrument panel lights permanently switched on, even in daylight conditions.

Hope this helps?

Hi Znurtdog

Could you please advise which aircraft type you are referring to, as I can only help with the Zibo or default 737?
