It appears that you don't have panel lights turned up to max.
Also, dome lights help.

I also made a post about this issue here https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...17011&t=219595

I expect these sorts of problems will be on the backburner until the F-18 is further along in development. I don't think issues like these will disappear without a complete overhaul of the lighting. (Maybe even delayed until after the release of the Mi-24? I certainly hope not...)

Turn on landing/head lights. It shines in the cockpit.

I agree the cockpit lighting in the Mi-8 is absolute pants
