When ED get's their side fixed I can re-enable the rest of the glow effects and increase the beam widths.
My mistake. I knew it was a workaround as you said before. The assumption on my part is that the way you got it not to bleed through was to revert to some previous lighting technology. I didn't think it was possible to fix it simply by adjusting the values on the new tech.

Nice to see some light colors other than #FFFFFF that you see on most modules. Default values are so boring.

Please can the beam point a little more to the center of the runway? I notice a little "deviation" to the left (u can check that in the above screen posted by Hiromachi)

Is like the beam illuminates the runway more to the left than to the right
The left light should skew left as this is where the pilot must look during the flare for ground reference since he cannot look over the nose. The manual even states this direction specifically. Probably the right light points more or less straight ahead since it has no hope of illuminating the left side. It might be strong enough to get some illumination of the landing spot pre-flare in the forward direction.

I'm really happy with the latest update, quite a few problems were fixed. Thanks a lot Rudel and the other devs for your work !
I hope the PRMG will also be fixed soon.

yeah, this is common across russian aircraft design and can be seen from the mig-15 to the su-27. more than a few "bug reports" issued for the latter...
