Soft Lens-flare

Hey,guys this is Shell and I bring here a new lens-flare(the third effect I've ever made),
because some one told me that my lens-flare looks too "hard",so I make a soft one this time,enjoy~! XD

Q:What's the improvements of this addon than the early two flares?
A:It's much natural,the strips aren't that hard and clear,so it's softer than BF4 style and V3 EXT.And the most IMPORTANT POINT is that I did some changes in the lua so the spots are fixed around the sun!It means they won't move when the player is turning,the early two flares don't have this feature.

Q:Any idea for color mod and bloom mod?
A:Go to have a look at this guide.

Q:The sun is over-bright for me,how to reduce the brightness?
A:Open your spawnmenu,select the PostProcessing Tab(Right,not the one beside Vehicles)-Lens Flare and turn down the value of Intensity.

Q:Still too bright!I want to see it but not that bright!
A:Open your spawnmenu,select the Post Process Tab(The left one),find Sharders-Bloom,set the number of Darken Amount to 1.00.

Q:Your addon is great!How do I support you?
A:Press the thumb button in this addon's workshop page or select the smiling face of this addon in your addon menu.

Q:How to uninstall this addon/mod?
A:Open the "Addon" Folder in your game,select "Subscribed" and move your mouse to this addon,press uninstall.

Q:It's still there when I unistalled this!
A:Open the workshop,find this addon's page,select "Unsubscribe"(the green button). Go to your gmod addon folder(steam\steamapps\username\garrysmod\garrysmod\addons),see if the .gma file of this addon exists,if the answer is "yes",then delete it.

Q:I have a suggestion/objection about the addon,how to let you know?
A:Leave a comment here(the workshop page)or leave them(only suggestions) to my account page.

The lens flare doesn't even look like this in-game...

Hey, I'm having a strange problem with this addon, instead of this lens flare I see an older version of it. Oddly enough its this one: . Also I don't know if it has anything to do with other workshop addons I have downloaded or how many but thats something to consider I guess. If anyone has any idea as to how to fix this problem I would greatly appreciate it for I love the addon.
