Simshed Nimrod - Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I love this aircraft, but its only flaw for me is the smoke effects when pushing the throttles on take off, it cut fps from 30-40 down to 9-12. No I've looked at the Effects section in the cfg, but no smoke mentioned. I found a fx_nimrod_smoke.fx file in the FSX Effects folder, but on removal there is no effect (that file might have been imported with an AI Nimrod).

So what's generating the thick black smoke trails? And more importantly, how do I get rid of them... !!

Maybe try to set 'special effects' slider to OFF in FSX ? - just blind shot

I fixed it, thanks anyway! I redownloaded into a folder on my desktop so I could get a good luck at all the files, and lo! there were four MR2 smoke files destined for Effects. I went into FSX and deleted them. Bingo!

The smoke fx are named:

fx_MR2L_smoke_1.fx

fx_MR2L_smoke_2.fx

fx_MR2R_smoke_1.fx

fx_MR2R_smoke_2.fx

 

Remove those from your effects folder and to should be OK.

 

edit: I see you found them!

Thanks Dave and Charlie, I should have kept on thinking it through before I posted.

Only discovered this aircraft about a month ago and have made a few flights in it since - it's an exceptionally nice piece of freeware indeed with a great external model, very good VC, a nice soundset and, for anyone who likes to use the GTN750, the AP functions well with this. My only minor criticism is that it seems to rapidly accelerate to well above the VNE even in a fairly steep climb without a considerable reduction in power after take off which I suspect is not quite realistic for a Spey powered Nimrod but I am open to correction on its flight dynamics from anyone who is familiar with this aircraft! This however can be easily managed and doesn't detract from the fact that this is a GREAT add-on aircraft for which the clearly very talented Simshed development team deserve our gratitude.
