    Default Excessive tire smoke ?

    I have ridiculous clouds of tire smoke at touchdown. Is there any file that I can go to reduce this ?

    Thank you.

    Look in aircraft cfg and find (effects). See if you have this: 'touchdown=fx_tchdwn_s, 1' . The '_s' denotes 'small' (amount) of smoke. At least, smaller, than default smoke effect.

    New users note that the effect may be water/snow on the rwy.

    When I first started with FSX:SE, it was winter here in the Midwest. I thought I was tearing the tires off the aircraft. The problem mostly went away when summer arrived!
