    After heavy crashing, windscreen would start to reflect environment. It seems as if the windscreen inside shader(which does not reflect) has been swapped with windscreen outside shader(which does reflect). This bug happens on any tracks.

    And this bug won't disappear until quit current game session and re-load.

    After crashing (can see bluish reflection on windscreen): 20220809183234_1.jpg

    Also, the front wheels (or at least their mudgards) are not visible from the cockpit view.. which is very strange especially in VR.

    +1 here. I got this after forcing a restart in an offline race.

    And another user noted driving thru the dust of another car also mucked up the windscreen.

    Same thing just happened to me now. Restarting the weekend etc doesn't solve it. I have to quit the session altogether and race again.

    Just to file a quick report, it's still there in 1.05

    Oh well, not a biggie, better try not to have an incident until it's fixed then :D

    Just did a few session at Targa florio with v1.05, and bug still exist.

    Even without any crashes, the windscreen will eventually be bugged after driving a while (I'm guessing that any kinds of contacts with body parts such as bottoming could also trigger it). And it is very troublesome for sight for tracks like Targa florio, where roads are narrow, and a clean view is vital to not miss a land mark & crash. So far the only way to avoid this bug, is to set "Damage multiplier" to 0% (note: even Invulnerability assists won't stop this bug from happening).

    Quick update - we were racing the Caterhams last night and a number of us encountered the windscreen bug at various times.

    A client who leaves and rejoins the server does *not* reset the issue - nor does a ‘restart weekend’.

    However if the dedi is rolled through ‘options’ to ‘Load track’ and the event restarted that way, the issue is cleared for all affected clients…

    Thanks for the details all, we don't know the cause yet but will update it when we have a fix!
