Default Nose light bug

I've noticed a couple of bugs in the OB for the MiG-15 both regarding the nose light, so I've kept them together.

Bug 1.
Turning on the nose light causes flickering white light in the cockpit (sometimes not visible if the MiG-15 is stationary, but always appears when in motion). In the external view, flickering light is visible on the exterior too, mainly inside the nose, around the canopy, and the wing roots.

Bug(?) 2.
Switching on the circuit breaker for the nose light appears to also turn on a light in the cockpit someplace to the left of the pilot (just circuit breaker, nose light on/off doesn't affect this). Not certain if this is a bug, or a feature I don't know about.

Will attach DxDiag and track.

Thanks!

Edit: sorry for not posting in the bugs section, I thought I had

Bug 2 is a 'feature' - the landing light circuit breaker also controls the light in the left console. God knows why.

As for the flickering I could not reproduce it.

Thank you! I was wondering if it was intentional.

As for the flickering, it doesn't seem to occur if I have shadows on, but shadows are quite expensive so I usually do without. Cockpit global illumination doesn't seem to have an effect either way.

Just bumping this.

Has anybody else experienced light flickering when the noselight is on and shadows are off?

Try it at night....place lights up like a Christmas tree!



Only happens with shadows set to 'Off' or 'Flat Only'.
