Panels night texture issue - night lighting v. floodlights

Recommended Posts

I found this issue on E195 - see image attached (I did not check in the other aircrafts).

The night texture is of very poor quality. It becomes instantly better when you use the flood/storm knob.

I would expect a high definition texture even without the flood/storm light. 

Best regards

I can only confirm E175 and E195. I don't own the E170 and E190, so I can't check them.

It happens pretty much in the whole instrument panel, where there are written stuff, like the pictures above (keyboard of the FMS and the reference speed table).

Can confirm I get low def textures with the dome light with the E175/195

So you have the opposite issue from the OP?

Please also have a look at the texture of the FMS. It appears that there is a mismatching layer or something. If you look at the number keys, you can see a circular light "shadow", decentralized to the its left. You can note the same pattern in the other keys and the screws of the MCDU.

It seems like the light is just hitting the keys in a weird angle. Most likely it will not happen at any other lighting condition.

It is not light. I used "shadow" for lack of a better word, but it seems like a stain. Have a look at the screw holes in the upper part of the FMS, and you will notice that it is not a shadow.

Regarding the FMS keys, I cannot see why you think there is a problem. To me they look perfectly normal. The alpha numeric keys are indented, that is, they have a depression in the centre of each key. To represent that on a flat screen requires use of lighter and darker shades, as in any artistic work. Real FMS keys develop a shine in use, and the example shown gives a good representation of the real thing.

It is not the keys, but around them. I hope the picture below make it more clear:

seriously your complaining about a screw texture?

What's the problem? I payed US$60 in this aircraft, and I'm here supporting Feelthere with improvements/troubleshooting in this product.

I thought you were reporting an issue that was about the light? Not the screw texture? Im sure they will add it too the list ..........At the bottom. 

They may add it to the bottom. I never asked for priority on this one.

Feelthere, just to make sure, there's two issues that I reported in this topic: the texture at night (dome light), and the stains in the FMS (not light related, appears to be a texture issue as well).
