Windshield Icing - unable to see. Xplane 12.

Hello, 

On several occasions now, I have found the windshield has fogged up or frozen, and have been unable to see outside. 
I have worked through the icing procedures, but have had no success - only option is to fly at low altitude with above freezing temps. 
 

Tonight I was attempting to depart from KDLH and they had freezing temps with snow. I deiced as per normal procedure and ensured the icing system was working and turned on but the windshield would not defog or deice. 
 

Does anyone have any solutions? 
 

thanks

Wow … this was reported for X-Plane 12.05 already. We‘re now at 12.07 and no fix yet? Is there any possibility to disable the windshield icing effects? This makes the sim basically unusable during winter time.

You can try this untested script as a workaround https://github.com/pilsnerish/FlyWithLua-Scripts/blob/main/CL650_window_heat.lua

Hello,

This XP12 issue is still present in 12.0.9 final release. Currently flying around Montreal in icing conditions and had to perform a "blind" landing due to icy windscreen. Window Heat on HI had no effect. Any idea ? Best regards, Philippe

Thanks for your answer. I really hope LR is aware that their « fix » (https://developer.x-plane.com/x-plane-bug-database/?issue=XPD-14670) actually doesn’t work :( and that they will « fix the fix » ASAP

They are. But we may also not be able to fix it without modification to the plane. In the meantime my script linked above does the job.
