More pronounced when viewing from the top/bottom aft.Just upgraded my graphic card drivers and have all 3 contrail files in the effects folder. have played with the Mip Mappingseting but no joy.Windows XP, Service pack 3Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS4 gig of RamAny suggestions would be appreciated.Cheers,irish3

I would start by opening the fx files with notepad. In them you will see references to .bmp files which must be in the effects\texture folder.I suspect they are missing or have been altered by an add-on.
