  This mod changes the Taxi Ribbon and Parking Assistance 3D objects colors and sizes.
  It consists in unobtrusive modifications to Asobo_UI.bgl to make the helpers naturally
  blending with the ground, less invasive in VR and more convenient in 3D.


  Smaller Green Taxi Ribbon Arrows
  - Blending naturally with the taxi lines and displaying only a few meters away from the aircraft.
  - Visible at night.

  Blue/Green Parking Box
  - Displaying as thin blue/green patterns over the ground.
  - Visible at night.

  Blue/None Parking Box
  - Displaying a thin blue pattern over the ground and disappearing once inside the area.
  - Visible at night.

  White/None Parking Box
  - Displaying almost like ground painted parking lines and disappearing once inside the area.
  - Reflective only.
