  • Copy and paste the enclosed "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 FSX default DC-3 "aircraft.cfg" file. I pasted mine between the [brakes] section and the [hydraulic_system] section with good results.
  • Press the "I" key while flying your DC-3 and enjoy your smoke!
