SMACK! Actually, you may have some good ideas, but I'll leave it to Jan, Fred, and Hansi to figure out when the time comes.As for the "takeoff smoke", I can't duplicate it in either FS9 or FSX. So, the question is: What are you smoking, HoggyDog? Seriously, we've never had a report of this phenomenon. Which plane and which sim were you using, and does it happen at different default airports? Anyone else seeing the touchdown tire smoke effect at the moment of liftoff?
Yes, I know. I should be able to find more useful stuff to obsess about. Slap me. http://forum.avsim.net/public/style_emot...

How would you redesign the world's finest aircraft?

Wow- I just assumed that everyone was experiencing this. I am flying the MAAM-SIM R4D-6 Bare Metal airplane, "stock" except for the HSI/Gyro panel addon available in the library here, using FSX SP1 **without** SP2 or the "transparency fix."This occurs 100% of the time, at all airports from which I have taken off in this airplane, requiring only that I be using an exterior view at the moment of liftoff. I thought about trying to get a screenie of the tires smoking at liftoff (to prove that the hemp I'm smoking is USDA approved), but a still shot wouldn't "prove" whether I was lifting off or touching down... unless one wanted to infer flight phase based on flaps being retracted... but of course it is perfectly possible to touch down in a slightly-tail-low wheel landing attitude 2/3 along a runway with flaps retracted... which would be indistinguishable from a takeoff in a still picture...I would be glad to attempt a video capture of this happening and email it to the MAAM-SIM team... if I knew how to do a vid cap in FSX... or who to email it to...*wanders aimlessly away, idly chatting to no one in particular*

News flash: I just captured two videos of R4D-6 tire smoke at liftoff- one at Atlanta Hartsfield and one at London Heathrow. Unfortunately, the AVI files are 4-5 GIGAbytes each, so I guess the only way to get them to any MAAM-SIM person is burn them to a DVD and snail-mail it.Please let me know if you want me to do that and if so, to whom (address etc.). Thanks.
