I tried this out at night. I had the nav lights on high, and it was pitch black out. Only starts to see, and a bit of ground lighting.

I pressed F3 and at first you could only see the nav lights very dimly, but after a second they suddenly appear bright, as if they had crossed a threshold.

well, i must admit that i tested in dusk/dawn and it seemed, as if the navigation lights would vanish completely after 100 meters or so.

i will have to recheck in complete darkness.

but even if despite my claims they could indeed still bee seen on longer ranges, they would still be way too dim and needed more tweaking.

finding your wingman in low visibility conditions is still way too difficult, especially if you don't have data link...
