Windshield brighter than side window "not an issue" according to devs...

Discussion in 'Assetto Corsa' started by eobet, Nov 11, 2013.

  1. ...the same as through the side windows.

    26.3%
  2. ...very different than all other windows.

    73.7%

    ...but is it really realistic? Here's how it looks in Assetto Corsa right now:

    One of the developers said:

    I've personally never been in a car that had colors show up differently through different windows (that didn't have tinted glass applied, but in some countries is illegal to have in the front anyway).

    How about you?

    Looks exactly the same in my MINI and the front windows aren't supposed to be tinted.

    Well I know for a fact, that many cars (more modern) have a slight tint in their side windows (not talking about the film, that can be added later, but the tint of the glass itself), and sometimes with a little color hue. Many Mercs have a slight blue hue, my car has slight green.

    What car is it? If it's the E30, then it shouldn't have it probably.

    I own a 2000 S3 and my side windows have a very small difference than the windshield.

    Really? This exists?

    Wow... you learn something new every day.

    Now I must go and look for it. 30 years of driving and being driven in cars, from family wagons, coupes and various sports cars, I've never seen it...

    But still, looking at the poll, people have voted that it's the same... or did I word my poll question in a confusing manner? :)

    I only discovered it a few weeks ago in my car. Fortunately, I didn't have to discuss whether it was realistic or not. :)

    Actually, mine are not darker, they have a weird yellowish tint when the sun hits them, so its more like a filter. I hope i helped :)

    I have seen many Renault cars have a coating on the glass that reflects a lot of UV light etc.

    This must surely go to the top of the list of the most random thing a simracer has ever questioned or complained about??? :O_o:

    I have seen the different sky colour in the side view and screen view, it didn't look odd enough for me to notice it until it was mentioned. But to watch the clouds actually moving across the side window when sat still in the pits,, i did notice that :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:

    or is that my car rolling backwards :redface::whistling:

    track cars and streetcars would have different glass/plastic in the windows. In track cars the side windows would be lightweight plastic, windscreens would be a lot tougher, as to the shading of each i don't know
    street cars can have different glass in them for sure,

    Well, I thought I was onto something when I saw the vastly different colors on the side windows compared to the front. I mean, don't you think it's far, far more noticeable on the sim than in reality? (I still can't see it in real life.)

    Also, I've been to Italy, but I don't remember the skies being azure blue and the grass being radioactive luminescent green... what I mean is that something is wrong with the way they correct colors in HDR, and their "use pageup/pagedown" responses is not the root cause of the problem, because it's more than just intensity.

    it's too bright through the windswcreen full stop, like massive hdr over compensation like what rf2 suffered with and they've only just got it right in their latest update.
