While using TWS weapons in the editor, I noticed it displayed odd behavior. When using the TWS sight, as both an East or West unit, with any TWS, the TWS will not display properly. Terrain will not render in the sight view, and the sight will be washed out with either black or white depending on mode. Units WILL display in it, but terrain will not render, making it extremely difficult to use.

I have narrowed this behavior down to months, but have not experimented with individual days. So far my testing has revealed that while using the TWS sight in January, February, March, November, and December the sight will be washed out. All other months the sight will operate normally. Also, it only seems to affect the sight during night hours. During daylight hours in the affected months the sight seems to operate normally.

Attached is a demo mission which demonstrates this. Also attached is a screen shot for a quick understanding of what is being experienced.

I see it too, it is actually rendering it's just all one colour.
This can be seen when you kill the soldier the grass can be seen in front of him.
