Smoke Trails for T-38

Recommended Posts

For you new T-38 lovers flying the Thunderbirds paint scheme version, I found this tutorial that may be just the answer to add various colors of smoke to the aircraft. There is a nice tutorial on how to alter the aircraft.cfg file to incorporate the smoke capability.I am at work now so I can't verify that the technique really works, but it appears that it is doable. Pressing the "I" key will toggle smoke on and off. It also allows you to add several smoke trails to wherever you want them on the aircraft.This sounds like a nice weekend project to enhance an already "outstanding" aircraft. Have fun and I hope it works!Keith Last file located at: [http://www.fsfreeware.com/dcd/Tutorials/index-2.html]:-wave

Hi folks!Well, I may have been too optimistic before I suggested the smoke trails. It appears that FSD has programmed their model to display contrails accurately and forego having the "I" key work in its normal manner. I had visions of using the smoke trails with the Thunderbird model that user "Yellow5" so expertly produced. I admit, I am a Thunderbird pilot wannabee! How I wish that FSD would give us an optional "smoke trail" model.However, there is a F-5E (T-38 derivative) with a smoke trail system built-in that could be enhanced with the Smoke System I mentioned in my initial thread. Yellow5, if you're up to it, could you apply your Thunderbird paint scheme to that model. It is in the AVSIM library.In case you missed the outstanding work of Yellow5's paint scheme, here is a screenshot I captured this morning while escorting a 747 over California. Hope it displays correctly:
