Default AMRAAM a bit too smokeless...

Is it just me or the AMRAAM is a bit too much smokeless in the DCS?

or

I know temperature, altitude, pressure etc has to do with it and this has probably been discussed before to exhaustion, but I never seen in DCS even this short smoke from the AMRAAM...

The smoke effect was implement for the AIM-54 phoenix with the F-14 and it looks AMAZING. So I guess that Eagle Dynamics will follow on an implement it with the 120 at some point to have some consistencies.

That's vapor, not smoke. Vapor effects for rocket motors are not modeled.

Then it's about time for them to get modelled.

The integrity check and my non-existent access to the source code.

Sorry that I stated a wish that I would like to see getting implemented by the devs...

Technically it shouldn't be too difficult since there is a particle system already for other missiles.

Probably it would just involve tweaking the trigger to simulate the vapor and the settings of the particle emitter that is already there.

But it is up to the ED to figure out their priorities, but the thing like this really would really help the 'red' side in the MP which is already sparse and declining since everybody wanting to fly the Hornet and full fidelity jets...

I suppose it might help the red side some times. But given that atmospheric moisture content doesn't appear to be simulated at all in-game, I have my doubts that it would help (or should help) anywhere outside of contrail zones, if that.
So, technically, no it's not really possible to simulate this accurately.
