23 Sqn RAF did a night mission on 11th Sept and to me it appeared that flying on 'perfect' made it harder than on 'excellant'.
Does anyone else seem to have a problem with this, and why is it harder to identify objects with better settings?

Night Flying.

Room lights off. Icons on. Instrument lights on.

It also helps that I have a cheapo MAG brand CRT monitor with quick single button access to a "vivid mode". It brightens things up a notch without messing with my monitor settings.

Oh, I can't run "perfect" settings here.

If you have an NVidia card, try turning the 'Digital Vibrance' control up to low.

It's in your display properties>Settings>Advanced>*NVidia Card Name*>Color Management section.

I find adding the slightest amount of digital brilliance to the colours works wonders in helping me differentiate between objects while flying nights.

I also find that turning the setting up any higher than the upper end of 'low' over saturates the colours and has the opposite effect to what I want.

You can also load the mission in the full mission builder and change the time of day to morning.
