FSX Smoke squares 4 years 4 months ago #33496

Please can anyone tell me why exhaust smoke appears as squares when I run FSX? Trying to lift to the hover is a bit like negotiating a black equivelant of a white-out!

Does this happen for all aircraft or just a particular one?

It sounds as though one of the effects textures has been overwritten

Dear Brian,
Thanks for the reply.
It happens with all aircraft and also to the "dirt" thrown up by the wheels.
I have probably added one effect too many!

Possibly just an effect texture missing

Effects like are actually modelled parts made in a certain way and become transparent when textures are added.

Similar to when you see a spinning prop as a solid disk for a second or two before the texture kicks in or as a solid throughout if the prop disk texture goes awol.

Thanks, Garry.
It looks like I will have to reload the fsx effects folder again.
Regatrds,

Hi Deane..yep...that would be a good start,

It affects a lot of your models so it's probably one of the default effects.

Hi, Garry/Brian.

SORTED!

Smokey smoke instead of squares!

I found a texture file in the wrong place!

Thanks for the assists.

Nice one

One of those thing that looks disastrous but is easily fixed

Thanks for getting back to us
