Mist following plane. Already tried other threads.

Recommended Posts

I'm getting mist following me as you can see in the screen shot.

I did a search first before posting and saw that I should rename two files:

fx_WheelWetSpray.fx

fx_WheelSnowSpray.fx

So I renamed them and restarted FSX and it's still there.

 

I know this is an FSX bug but I was wondering if I'm missing anything.

I have a lot of ORBX files that I saw in the Effects folder but don't know if that makes any difference.

Any help would be very much appreciated.  Thanks.

What aircraft are you flying, freeware or payware?  If you think it may be caused by an effect, try

 

renaming the EFFECTS] file in the aircraft.cfg to [EFFECTS.1]  this will elininate all effects

 

so you can do a test flight to see it the mist is gone.

I can't say I have ever experienced this before, with or without ORBX.  Does this occur in other areas of the world?  Have you tried switching aircraft?

It's a bug in FSX. If you takeoff on a wet runway you will see the spray from the takeoff follow you.

Yes, it's a known bug but as I posted above about renaming those two files it worked for me a year ago.

Now it's back despite remaning those files.

I was wondering if anyone else has a fix for it.

I was in the Carenado B208 but it does it wilh all planes in ORBX or non-ORBX areas.

Yeah, I saw that but from the reviews I've read there's a lot of stuff in it to really slow down the sim, even some people have claimed OOM's from it.

I can't speak for DX9 but it's definitely not there for me with DX10. I tried default aircraft and payware over ORBX scenery and once you're clear of the runway it's gone.

I can't use DX-10.

 

I got this in the summer on a rainy runway. Orbx or non-Orbx, doesn't matter.

It was water effects not snow.

I do not think Precipfx is the cause of oom, and there have been many updates every month. The only complaint I still see from others using the latest version is if you check the contrails box and that can cause performance issues. If you just install rain/snow and spray effects it should be fine. Worth it just for the better rain and snow effects in my opinion.

It's done it in DX-10 mode as well, but I have the Precipfx now and can't remember if I have seen it since, seeing how Windows 10 Defender/Blender allowed the Trojan virus from way down south to enter my PC. Had to wipe the drive with zero's and reinstall my windows 7 image then back to windows 10 for more abuse. Make sure you have a good anti-virus if your on windows 10. I was accessing a HVAC forum and my pc was trashed by the virus. You can't get Microsoft Essentials on windows 10 as it is the dreaded Blender instead. Hope this helps.

Vapor trail on ground and in air between main gears is normal. This an FSX bug. To get rid of this effect, rename "fx_SnowEngineWash.fx" to "fx_SnowEngineWash.fx.off".

No, it's not normal! If it's an FSX bug, why don't I get it? I haven't renamed any files and I've now tried all of my aircraft, default and payware, and none of them have this problem. Is there a particular area that you get this in? By definition, an FSX bug would affect everyone and it obviously doesn't.

You have to fly in certain conditions to see it

I have seen this happen during beta tests , it turned out that when ASN was enabled there was a mystery mist  , when the tester turned off ASN that stopped .

 

Do you have ASN ?

Yes, I have ASN but it was doing it before ASN.

I will try to remane that third file.

And it only does it when the runway is wet.

What are the required conditions? Anything I've tried so far that has spray/mist during takeoff does not have it once clear of the runway.

I use ASN but don't have the problem.

It is not ASN or anything else, just rename "fx_SnowEngineWash.fx" to "fx_SnowEngineWash.fx.off". Simple  

 

​For those of you who haven't experienced it yet, the conditions have to be just right.
