Station label intensity by distance

Registered by James Ross on 2017-04-19

One of the features in MSTS which I find very useful is the intensity of the Station (or other location) name given with the F6 key display, varying in intensity the closer the user is to the actual location, dim some distance from the location, gradually becoming intense as the location is reached, and dimming again as the location is passed.

Implementation provided by mbm_OR on 2017-02-13.

X3831 - Vary station label intensity by distance.
X3832 - Increase label distance to 1km and vary intensity more clearly than colour.
X3847 - Vary alpha intensity of label backdrop as well as text.
X3849 - Bug fix for blending on station/siding labels. Additionally made train/car labels behave the same as station/siding labels.
X3850 - Added messages when switching train/car labels, same as station/siding labels.
X3853 - Display sidings, train, and car labels only up to 500m (platforms still 1000m). Use orange for sidings to differentiate from platforms.
X3991 - Update to include auto mode, which shows only platforms and sidings relevant to the activity or timetables.
