Outboard Engine Intake Condensation Effects in Flight

Recommended Posts

I have recently taken the PMDG 747 QOTS II for a spin and noted that, in flight, the outboard engines have engine intake condensation effects which are not aligned with the compressor fans. The outboard effects seem to apply to an unflexed wing as if e.g. on the ground. This could be due to wing flex, but surely the condensation effects would attempt to follow movement of the outboard wing to align themselves to the engine intakes?

Should these condensation effects follow the wing flexing and could it be that my settings are incorrect?

I have tried to repeat the circumstances under which the described effects occurred to no avail. Having tried a takeoff in fog, I can confirm that the condensation effects are correct (I could not repeat the problem above), as opposed to a widespread issue.

If anyone has any comments about the condensation effects and the engines under the influence of wing flex in flight, then please pass on your knowledge/experience in relation to the 747 immersion package.

I have experienced the same issue multiple times with not only the condensation effects but also the RR drain fumes being not correctly aligned on the outer engines. I agree they seem to not follow the wing flex.

I hope this can be fixed soon.
