Engine smoke effect for the Thomas Ruth FSX Airbus A300-B, which you must have previously installed in FSX. Works with all three versions, the A300-B1, A300-B2, and A300-B4. Easy installation. By Tom Tiedman.

This smoke is hidden inside the engines when the aircraft is standing still. As the aircraft begins moving, the smoke trail appears. As the aircraft comes to a stop, the smoke hides back inside of the engines again.

  • Copy and paste the enclosed "fx_smoke_f6.fx" file into your FSX "Effects" folder. (It is probably there already.)
  • Copy and paste all of the [SMOKESYSTEM] info. below into all 3 of your your A300_B model's "aircraft.cfg" files. (then click 'file', then click 'save' for each one, of course.) I pasted mine at the bottom of all 3 files with good results.
  • Press your "I" key while flying your A330-B's in FSX and enjoy the smokey engines!
