737-300 Classic engine exhaust animation

Recommended Posts

I'm having this strange animation of the 737-300 Classic engine exhaust. This has possibly been asked in other forums, is there away of getting that back to normal? It looks unreal and maybe I set something wrong.

 

Thanks for any help in advance.B733 - 2019-06-09 23.35.16.jpg

You have a "wet" apron - this is the default X-Plane "water spray" effect.

Happy landings, Jan

Jan, does that mean it is a setting in X-plane 11 that I can change? My problem is that I'm always getting that effect regardless of whether I have precipitation or not.

Yes, I think you can set the "runway state" directly in the weather menu. So even if the sky is clear, your runway could still be wet. You may have to scroll down the settings in the weather menu to see it...

Cheers, Jan

Tried "dry" for the runway condition, didn't make a difference. What next?

Yes, that is what I meant.

Hmm, can you try at another airport? Maybe there is something wrong with the authoring and your aircraft thinks it sits on a dusty surface - this will also cause smoke/dust like that.

Ok, then I am out of ideas. You are the only one out of several thousand users reporting this problem, so I assume it is something unique to your setup. I would suggest removing all add-ons, third-party content and plugins and checking again with a vanilla X-Plane installation. If that runs ok, add your addons in again to find out which one is causing the problem.

Other than that I have no suggestions. Cheers, Jan

Ok, thanks anyway for your fast response. I don't recall having the problem in the past, just seems to be recently. I'll try your suggestions. Cheers

"Only one out of several thousands" Shows how out of touch you are with the community. It's a problem with the New Xenviro 1.10 version, everyone has it.

Excuse you? Are you God Almighty and now everyone has xEnviro? You need a reality check. I also like how you decided to clip the part of the quote where Jan said "reporting this". In no way was he incorrect to say what he did, and he's pretty in tune to what's being reported on the IXEG product.

 

Park the attitude at the door, or we'll help you with that next time.

Hi,

This is not a problem with X-Enviro, but with X-Plane 11 itself. It can be fixed quite easily in PlaneMaker for every aircraft.

Open X-Plane 11 PlaneMaker and look for the IXEG 737 Classic.  There highlight B733.acf and then click Open Aircraft.

Wait until the 733 has loaded.  Then go to Expert. In Expert click on Invisible Parts.

There scroll to the bottom to Disable X-Plane's Built-in Effects! and remove the tick marks at Use X-Plane's buit-in wing heat effects and Use X-Plane's built-in downwash/prop wash effects.

Save the file and you are done. You will have to reload the aircraft (including art if using Developer) to see the result.

Hope this helps,

Werner

Hi Werner,

while your fix may certainly get rid of the "erroneous" water spray from X-Enviro, it will also disable the spray/dust effects you would rightfully get when operating the 737 over wet or dusty surfaces. I consider it a bit of a rough remedy. I am not sure why X-enviro is having this effect - unlike "everyone" I don´t have it installed :lol:.

You could also turn off your engines - this would also get rid of the effect ;).

Cheers, Jan

Hi Jan,

it may be a somewhat crude remedy, but at least the dust or water spray from the wheels is still there.  :D

BTW,  I do not use X-Enviro at the moment.  Switched to ASXP.  The excessive spray is definitely an X-Plane thing.  Seems that Austin loves to go overboard with his effects.

All the best,

I don't have it.
