Wink M-2000C Navigation Lights Fix

Hello people,

My work is based on my previous infamous topic Unrealistic Aircrafts NAV Lights. So here is my new contribution to RAZBAM's M-2000C, I fixed the navigation lights as nothing was made yet by the community and as I couldn't handle this issue anymore while waiting for a fix.

As you probably notice, most aircrafts in DCS shine like ridiculous Christmas trees, I tried to correct that, I'm not claiming my mod is perfect, I ain't a Photoshop Guru, but it's at least something which is more oriented towards reality. Not to mention, this is my personal taste, it might not suit for everyone.

I noticed that in most cases, the navigation lights are most likely tiny and almost invisible in real life during day time, that's a fact. However it should be quite visible on dusk/dawn time but not that much on military jets. So what are the changes ? I kinda removed the halo effect which tends to create bubbles around the light source and I tried to reduce the light source size. I edited the official RAZBAM .dds file, so hopefully, if you guys approve it, speak up your voice and RAZBAM may approve it on the official module !

Things I hope to change :

* Volumetric light would be awesome.
* Strobe/Anticol' lights should have that sweet and nice popping flash effect, as made on BMS.
* Navigation lights shouldn't be visible from the pilot's seat, I don't have the knowledge yet to fix this.
* Lights still tends to form a halo while dezooming with the mousewheel, this may be a DCS limitation.


Here is a picture that I used as reference :

Good job...

Note: Pour rendre le fichier compatible JSGME t'as juste à inclure le fichier dans les dossier \CoreMods\aircraft\M-2000C\Textures\M-2000C\ et ziper le tout. C'est plus pratique.
