Is there a way to change how bright the lights are on the aircraft? I'm more concerned about the nav lights then anything.

I don't know if this will work or not (never tried it myself) but here is a suggestion. Try editing the effect file. It is just a text file so can easily be edited with notepad (do make a backup copy first though).
First look in the aircraft.cfg (in aircraft folder) for the [LIGHTS] section to see which fx files are used. Then go to the effects folder and find the fx file (eg fx_navgre.fx) you want to edit and open it with notepad. Then look for "Color start" and "Color end" (they useally appear one after the other) and start mucking about. There will probably be one set in the particle and emitter sections (I'm working from memory here) so you may need to make a couple of changes.
The format is Color start=0,255,255,255. I'm not sure what the first number does but the last three set the Red, Green, Blue values (from min 0 to max 255). 255,255,255 is white and 100,0,0 is a darkish green. Color Start is what the color starts at and it fades to Color End to give flashing lights so the color end values should be less than the color start values.
Once you've finished editing save the file using the Save function (not Save as) and restart FS. If you have done something horribly wrong you will get an error message when FS starts (which is why you made a backup file).
Good luck and post your results (ie what did you change)
