  • 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 Metroliner III "aircraft.cfg" file (then click 'file', then click 'save', of course). I pasted mine between the [electrical] section and the [exits] section with good results.
  • Press your "I" key while flying your Metroliner III in FSX and enjoy the smoke!
