Why does it get darker when I switch to cockpit view?

I like using the cockpit view that includes the instrument panel, but when I switch to this everything becomes darker.

Doesn’t happen with me. What aircraft and what time of day are you on?

I am completely new to this sim and am flying the Cessna 208 at midday. I would compare the darkening to putting sunglasses on. That’s what it look likes to me.

Sometimes happens with some aircraft. But it is only slightly darker. Mainly due to the tint of the window. A screenshot would be nice to show us this.

Tinted windows. It’s there on many of the aircrafts. All of the 777’s aswell as the Citation X have tinted windows.


It’s the window tinting.


Thank you Riley, Nathan, and Sebastian!
