While flying the Desert Map, I saw this from the left ventral gunner position in the He-111. Didn't know what it was until I turned the gun back and saw that it was in fact the sun shining through the aircraft's skin. From the right gunner's position it was not visible. Thought it was odd, and worth a post here.

Happens with cockpit bars too, the sun will only disapear once its entirely coverd... you can still see half of it through the bars..

Strange. That would happen if the wall texture had an alpha channel. I'll go check if that's the case in a bit.

I thought this was the start of a `good-feeling` melody! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah, just checked the wall texture does have an alpha channel. That would be why.

LOL! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif It does have that ring to it doesn't it?

Perhaps something by "The Brady's or Polyphonic Spree??

This also happens with the wheel cover bumps in the Il-2s.

I've submitted this bug along with several other places in the He111 and the Me110 where it happens as well. Provind snapshots as well to the bug email address.

In some places, the AC skin is thinner than others!

Pingus, that shot reminds me of yet another song...this one by vintage Genesis

I've got sunshine/in my stomach

Though this guy's got a slightly more southerly illumination! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Actually, there's a Smiths song that has a better caption for that chute-riding pilot:

"Hand in Glove, the sun shines out of our behinds...."
