VC10 Super/Pro Effects missing
In the CFG for any of the Pro or Super VC10's one of the effects says "touchdown = fx_tchdwn_s, 1" but the install doze not inclu
e this effect into the P3Dv4 effects folder .... it is missing
I thought that was a default effect file (fx_tchdwn_s.fx) but if not then we can get that added to the installer in the next update.
These are all the from my effects folder
fx_tchdrt.fx - fx_tchdw.fx - fx_tchdwn_m.fx - fx_tchdwn_s.fx fx_tchdwnCX.fx but as I say the one listed in the CFG effects says fx_tchdwn_s, 1
It looks like you have the correct effect file. The ', 1' extension tells the simulator to only trigger the effect once.
Why does it not work then?
The effects are working correctly here:
Please contact the support team and we'll investigate further.

I think you are correct it might be working but the smoke is almost non existent quite poor in fact. the same for engine smoke it is almost invisible. I just hope in any updates these are looked at.

The trouble with tyre smoke is that the sim does not take into account the heaviness of a landing. In real life, the heavier the landing the more smoke but with the way the sim deals with it, if you have a heavier smoke effect then you get plumes of smoke with even the most delicate of landings. Personally, I find that unrealistic so always use the smaller smoke effects but if you want larger tyre smoke then you just need to change the _s in the effect reference to either _m or _l (from memory, I am on the mobile at the moment).
Yes I might try a different effect, the one used now is almost impossible to see, I agree with what you say some of these effect are way over the top but in this case it's as good as non existent.
