Adding smoke effect

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! :)I have a little problem.I'm trying to inser the vortex effect (on flaps) in a plane.The effect (.fx file) is correctly placed and works fine.I added also an .xml file to let the effect work only in some specific situation (temperature, pressure,..)The problem is that i added the effect in the {SMOKESYSTEM} section of aircraft.cfg and in this section there are some other lines that i cannot remove.So the result is that all the lines of {SMOKESYSTEM} is controlled by the .xml file.Is there any way to use the .xml just for one effect?Please help me..i didn't found any useful info in the SDK and in the FAQ on this forumThanks!

Yes, use LIGHT switches instead of the SMOKEsystem.In the LIGHTS section, you can use 10 independant Lightswitches, with max. 19 (light.0 - 18) lines.Of course, some of them are already used by real lights (beacon, strobes, etc), but usually 6 - 10 are unsed.Note however, that some effects behave differently when switched by a Light switch then if switched by the SMOKESYSTEM.Cheers, ROb
