Lightbulb [REPORTED]Approach lights for departures

Someone tested the airfields night lightings in 2.5.6?
I first tested Kutaisi active RWY26 in night conditions, then I again stepped to a bug in the first try.


Very dim from the arrival direction, in frontal look too.

Exclamation Sochi is much worser

The whole red approach lighting is for only departures. Not lit up for inbound call.
@BIGNEWY that is what you speaked for when we mentioned the no runway WHITE lights bug for MP Caucasus for 11+ hour long simulations started around 8AM or 10AM (and no reds too, but that is secondary), but you thought to only red approach lights versus starting planes?
For incoming aircrafts for RWY06 no any approach lights, the reversed direction installation complex not lit up.
The bright marking on the hill is OK in my opinion. (On the RWY24 end the approach lighting is installed in mixed directions.)
----------------------------------------------------------------
Gelendzhik approach 19 (real 22) also reversed (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen...d_marked19.jpg)
IMO should work as Novorossysk, departure always from 22 but arrivals from both direction aided at night

EDIT: That would be good to see from the reverse direction, inbound:

Lightbulb I tested all red approach lights directions in Caucasus

in DCS OB 2.5.6.47404

Nalchik 06 is reversed too. (I know the departure direction is always 06)

+ Sukhumi 30 fence in the wrong place, gaz66 searchlight must shine through the fence!
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen...WrongPlace.jpg

+ Beslan runway ending in concrete built 6 red lights don't work on both end,
for each active runway direction separately
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen...NotWorking.jpg

+ Tbilisi Lochini is big enough airport to have approach lights from both direction (13R missing),
altough ILS only from the one. Foggy weather plus high winds cause problems when horizontal visibility will be simulated again since LOMAC. Russian planes has enough good INS + the approach lights will be a good combination for a safe landing.

+ Soganlug 32 don't have approach lights
+ Gudauta 15 don't have approach lights
