Lights on my model disappears at a certain angle of view?

Dear community,

I've ran into a problem in my modeling process... this is what it looks like in Vehicle Simulator... from the stern. Some lights glow, others don't. I have seen this occur on other ships too, sometimes... But I was wondering if it had anything to do with the pivot point or axis?

EDIT: I contacted Ilan about the issue, and sent him my lights.cfg file, so hopefully this is solved soon.

Perhaps you could look at the lights.cfg file of the Jahre Viking found on the web link I posted on your Knock Narvis post. 23 Jan

Solved! By using the word "omni" before every light entry, like "OmniRed", "OmniGreen" and finally "OmniWhite" it made the lights show from any angle, thanks to Ilan. :D
