Using smoke sytem for multiple things

Recommended Posts

This is something new. If you wanna use the smoke sytem for multiple items eg the POSKY reverse thrust and autosmoke effect do you like for eg do this:[sMOKESYSTEM]smoke.0=0.0, 0.00, 25.00, fx_smoke_rx, POSKY reversesmoke.1=0.0, 0.0, 47.00, fx_smoke_rx, POSKY reversesmoke.2=0.0, 0.0, -25.00, fx_smoke_rx, POSKY reversesmoke.3=0.0, 0.0, -47.00, fx_smoke_rx, POSKY reverseOr like this:[sMOKESYSTEM]smoke.0=0.0, 0.00, 25.00, fx_smoke_rxsmoke.1=0.0, 0.0, 47.00, fx_smoke_rxsmoke.2=0.0, 0.0, -25.00, fx_smoke_rxsmoke.3=0.0, 0.0, -47.00, fx_smoke_rxsmoke.4=0.0, 0.00, 25.00, POSKY reversesmoke.5=0.0, 0.0, 47.00, POSKY reversesmoke.6=0.0, 0.0, -25.00, POSKY reversesmoke.7=0.0, 0.0, -47.00, POSKY reverseNOTE: These are not real names of effects, only autosmoke effect is real name, "POSKY reverse" just used as an example...And for PSS one, the smoke sytem is used for fuel dump effect so can you put the autosmoke and posky reverse effect for it or will the autosmoke and reverser effect only work when fuel dump is on?Cheers, POSKY reverse: an effect used for wet runway (check it out on youtube) Can download from avsim or flightsim.com. Doesn't matter, just need to know how to use smoke system for multiple effects...

Nandan,Using the smokesystem is fairly restrictive because it only has the one switch that can be activated by the 'I' key or by an auto gauge. So you can't activate multiple effects separately using it, like for example normal engine smoke from the rear of the engine and the reverse effect that you mention, because when switched, all smokesystem effects would be on or off, so you'd see them all at the same time.The alternative and better option is to use the switches in the [lights] system, as there are four there that are not routinely used in lights configuration (wing, logo, recognition and cabin), so that these can be used to switch different effects at different times based on specific events.;)
