Vapour trails messed up?!

Pro Member Trainee

I have white lines falling from behind planes to the ground.

let me explain,

when a ai plane or my own plane get to a certain altitude the vapour trails appear, but also with the vapour trails there is a near vertical set of vapour trails that fall all the way to the ground which then move with the aircraft. I will be sitting waiting to taxi at a gate and i will see these lines appear, that when i know that a plane is passing over head.

anyone else experience this before?

i'll try and get a screen capture of it when it happens next.

its a bit weird i don;t know if it has somethig to to do with the files in the effects folder.

ah coolio!

heres what i mean

look at the drop away of the trail

differnet angle?

what would the files be to delet the vapour trails? if i remove them one by one maybe i can find out the cause?

oh by the way thanks for showing me how to upload pics!
