[RESOLVED] Ground Spray

Post by bribeth »

Good evening,

If this has been answered already I apologize. I noticed a problem that is a definite issue from FSX. When I take off from a snow or wet runway, it has the spray effects. Even when I land at a dry area, the spray effects remain and are stuck. Is there anyway to just disable this effect so it doesnt follow me? Thanks.

This bug has been there since FSX. Was very surprised myself to STILL see it in P3D3...
Here's to hoping it gets fixed at once point.

I'm not sure if there's a workaround to fix it ourselves. There probably is, but it hasn't been on the top op my to-do list yet.

Hey Brain,

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention, we believe this should be resolved in the next release. It appears the effects that are spawning are spawning due to surface conditions being outdated. A possible work around in the meantime would be removing the fx_WetEngineWash and fx_SnowEngineWash effects from your Effects folder into another location until the next update.

Let us know if this work around resolves the issue for you.

Thanks,
-Kevin.
