The deck is way too shiny


Recommended Posts

Some months ago we got an update that removed the deck lines in the mission editor so in the top down view in ME you could not see the deck lines.  This was patched a few months ago and ever since the carrier deck has been extremely shiny making identifying the landing area, particularly when the carrier is sailing towards the sun very difficult to see.

Its a problem from all angles but at its worst when the carrier has the sun off the bow.

IRL the deck is covered in anti skip material and this does not reflect light as much as it does in the game. 

I appreciate an argument can be made for deck weathering/ageing and also oil/fuel spillages but the effect seems way over done and its as if the deck is 100% smooth and covered in water.

 

Please can some changes be made to the deck to make getting a visual on LA easier, it causing a lot of issues for pilots entering the groove to identify where to line up properly as all you see is the sunlight reflecting off a smooth surface.

Is the sun very high in the sky for the screenshots maverick? 

Also what is your gamma setting at?

I will mention it to the team, can not promise anything however.

Thanks Big Man,

Yeah the sun is pretty high boss but to be honest this now happens at all sun heights, my gamma is 1.7 but I have tried it at 2.0 and get the same shining effect.  I have checked with other people I fly with and mentioned on my stream before too and others are confirming they are seeing the same glint off the deck.

It never used to be this bad mate, although your screenshots look fine, I can't get any visual on the Landing Area until Im in close to the boat deep in the groove, when entering the groove all I see is the sunlight reflecting back up at me as if its a wet ice rink.

 

Cheers for your time!

The sun's position shouldn't matter, as this coating isn't supposed to reflect much by design (unless extremely worn down or covered in something).

@104th_Maverick Thanks for bringing this up. Hope they'll fix it.

For now I made a simple mod that kills the shininess. Will link it here once it passes the moderation.  >> Download.
