The way to get rid of the dirty exhaust black puff balls...

Recommended Posts

If you want them gone, just use Plane Maker, and under Engines, Dirty Exhaust , set the rating to .001

That will give you the heat shimmer, but no corny black puff balls...that looks like the engine has indigestion. LOLOLOL!

That gets rid of it.   You need to do this for every plane that you want them gone...

Hi Mitch,

Do you mean the hot air shimmering effect? I remember a plugin at the org for XP10, don't remember the name but was something HDR shimmering... 

What I would like to know is how to turn the vapor contrails from grey to white.

Cheers,

Uh no..not the shimmering. I like that...it was the dirty exhaust, dorky looking black puff balls. I just used Plane Maker...and dropped the rating to .001.  That did the trick. :)

BTW, grabbed the latest nVidia driver suite 384.94...and am rocking along at 50 FPS!

The last I heard about contrails, there are improvements on the way that require particle effects to be fully enabled, and that isn't in yet. Maybe that's coming in v1.10?

Understood. Yes those drivers are so great indeed!

Thanks Paraffin for the info I was worried wondering if I'm the only one.

Can I clarify please. Are we talking about engine exhaust that spews out of the planes engines, dark brown, looks like a bloody engine fire?

I hate this exhaust effect.

Right, that's the effect you can eliminate in the setting: Plane Maker, Engines, Dirty Exhaust. Set it as low as it will go and the dark smoke will disappear.

Austin must have a really smokey Lancair, with this default setting. :biggrin:

Thank you sir.

So this is my first attempt at using the plane maker, lauched, looking for something called dirty exhaust under all sorts of headings can't find it.

OK  found it under SFC/Sound tab.  Perfect let me give it a go.

I saw my payware  SSG 748 with an AI flying it. At first I thought it was a meteor because there was dark smoke cloud behind it that was visible before the jet. Strangely when I fly it I don't get the heavy black smoke...

OK what am I doing wrong!

I open a plane in plane marker.

I select STANDARD TAB > SFC/SOUND TAB> bottom right corner there is "exhaust dirtiness" - I dial down to 0.01.

I save the plane and try loading that model, still the same, great big puffs of smoke.

Tried rebooting the sim and same thing.

 

BTW I'm talking about a plane sitting on the tarmac with engines running.

Sorry. I haven't tried this myself, I just noticed the discrepancy between yours and Mitch's number. Hopefully you can get it to work.
