    In order to reduce the radar cross-section (RCS) of the aircraft, the F22 canopies are coated with a thin layer of Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), which gives it a golden tint. Now, I made a 1minute video on how to make a shiny canopy. This only looks good with a 4.5 or 5th Gen fighters. In my case, I use a random plane form my build. Enjoy!

    This
    Or this for glass fuselages
    For the glass fuselage, you change the one-way color visibility via hideInside

    @Kangy You can set the canopy colors to be one-way via XML
    That way only the tint can be seen from the outside, but not from inside.

    @Kangy Well, this is just for the look.

    ok but how does it look inside the cockpit when flying?
    im willing to bet a lot of money that it affects the pilot's visibility pretty negatively

    @sus232 Have you tried this. Make your canopy a mirror then change both opacities to 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and check out the different looks you can get. I had no idea.....Z😺
