This is a new contrail effect for your FS 2004. As you know, the original contrails are not very realistic as they are 2 dimensional, so I created a new 3D contrail for the FS2004 to make flights in high altitudes more realistic. In case you don't like the new effects, there are backup files containing the original fx_contrail_l.fx file! Hope you'll enjoy it!

Simple and easy to work with, this is an easy way for you to add a contrail effect into your simulator. While some mods come with this already equipped, this contrail effect look is a great touch to make high altitude flying look and feel more realistic.

One of the most common problems with contrails in simulators is that they tend to look blocky and overly pixelated. Despite being for FS2004, this does nothing of the sort and avoids looking damaged or "blocky" in any way, shape or form along the way.

Add in the fact that it carries backup files with the old original contrail file, should you wish to revert, and you can easily use this to heighten and enhance the realism of your experience. Backup files mean that you can use this and take it off as and when necessary.

A simple, easy to work with an add-on that adds a touch of style and simplicity to the whole look – what more could you ask for?

Contrails are an important part of the simulation experience, so add them back into your FS2004 simulator if you feel like you need that added touch of realism. It’s a great way to make sure that, wherever you go, you are leaving your mark across the sky in the form of a thick, deep contrail that lasts for a realistic length of time.
