Yup, instruments were bright as hell with NVs on.

Please add an "NV Mode" for instrument clusters

Actually... in the first pic the instruments arent even illuminated, that's just ambient light

Please add instrument lighting of any kind!

For realism's sake, there may need to be a different approach. In real life you will not be able to read instruments through NVG's; pilots look under the tubes to see helicopter instruments when they need them if they don't have other options; in fact the "NV" lighting setting is designed to let a light filtering coating on NVG's keep glare from the instruments from obstructing the view through the tubes. Basically, it changes the instrument lighting to a wavelength that will be almost completely blocked by the NVG's.

One option is to have a HUD with customizable data feed into the NVG's themselves (which is a real thing). You have to get used to the HUD staying in front of you everywhere you look, but it does the job.
