Subtle engine smoke display for the Fairchild Merlin III by Mike Stone. In particular, Gustavo La Cruz' repaints which work great in FSX SP2 using Windows 7, 64 bit. Easy installation. By Tom Tiedman.

  • Copy and paste the "fx_smoke_f6.fx" file into your FSX "Effects" folder... (it's probably there already, so look first.)
  • Copy and paste all of the [SMOKESYSTEM] info. below into your Merlin III "aircraft.cfg" file for each aircraft. I pasted mine between the [keyboard_response] section and the [forcefeedback] section, which worked nicely.
  • Press the "I" key while flying your Merlin III and enjoy a nice mellow smoke!
