too much smoke

Recommended Posts

I've recently noticed all of my piston ac are emitting clouds of smoke.I've removed all smoke files from the effects folder except the basic "smoke" and still get smoke. Never saw a real aircraft put out much smoke..anyone know what else I can do? JamesJ

James, Same here. Cessna 172 emits clouds upon startup and puffs in flight. I think it started when I installed a couple classic propliners (Connie and Stratocruiser). Did you also install such craft. I bet an "effects" smoke file overwrote the original one. Anyone else help us before the environmental police ground our planes??Richard Ball
