    My guess is you have some shading addon running/setting that this creating excessively dark shadows...play with shading/shadow settings of all environment addons and any 'tweeks' done to default P3D settings.

    It was a P3D shadow setting...


    I had the Internal Vehicle setting turned on, and when I turned it off, the results were much better. When I solved this problem, I also downloaded TomatoShade and the R&D preset. I also changed the HDR values as you can see in the picture above. Here is the new result:


    That's already much better, but the buttons on the GP (FCU in Airbus terms or MCP in Boeing terms) are very hard to read because there is a lot of shimmering on the buttons. The overhead panes still is very dark, and because of that, the overhead panel is almost impossible to read. I think I should make a new topic about the shimmering.

    Here is a picture of the very dark overhead panel:



    @scoobflight Thanks for your help so far!

    Please provide a picture.  Also confirm if cockpit lights work in a night (dark) situation.

    Here is the picture in daylight, using FSWX, and the cockpit is very dark compared to the tutorial videos FeelThere has on YouTube.


    The cockpit lights do work at night.

    Did you taxi and see if it changes?

    This means you tried with only default P3D? NO weather/shader add-ons?

    I did taxi, the cockpit remains dark, I do use a free weather add-on called FSWX, but I disabled it this time, and no shader add-ons.

    All orientations to the sun?

    If you’re asking if the aircraft is pointed directly to the sun, the answer is no. I’m using FlyTampa EHAM and I’m parked at gate D24.

    And results without this?

    The results don’t change if I’m using the Winter Wonderland weather option.

    And the location?  Is this a location where 0945 is daylight or night?

    EHAM, that’s Schiphol airport. And 0945z is daylight there. The date is 31 March 2020. HDR is on, all HDR values are 1.00. I use the Fair Weather option.

  6. I just purchased the E175 v3, and my cockpit lighting doesn’t work. When I click dome light on, nothing happens. The switch does move into the on position, but there isn’t any lighting. The cockpit is too dark with the lights off. The time in the sim is 09:48z.


    Edit subject line a second time to better to reflect the question - Mods.

  7. Will the SP1 be included as part of the product? I haven’t bought the E-jet but I’m thinking about buying it once SP1 is released!
