Seems some of the effects are implmented. I say "implemented" in the sense that they are obviously imports from FSX. The effect I have seen so far has been dirt being kicked up by the wheels when going off the runway.

You have to wait for a release version on 18.august. Nobody knows, what effects will be included before.

Well - I will fly to the Aleuthians and see if I can recreate the scenes from John Hustons "Report from the Aleuthians". If I don't get the spray seen in that movie I want all my money back for my Premium Deluxe! (took some guts to take off / land on a runway covered in that much water)

There are a number of small FX missing from the alpha and beta footage. Wake and spray is one of the most notable ones. We had tire smoke in an early video of landing at Courchevel but it was going in the opposite direction it should have been, though it was subsequently swept away by the turning plane’s back draft Which is an impressive detail. I did see a recent beta video at wheel level perspective of taxing through wet weather and there appeared to be a very nice effect after the tire of the water having been expressed away.

The details that I’ve seen (tire smoke being modelled in the atmosphere and the water on runway) makes me think these “little” FX are in fact quite complex and so have needed more effort to get right.

Fingers crossed it’s all waiting for us upon release, but if not, I’m sure it will come.
