Default Engine Smoke

Is it my imagination or do the Hornet engines smoke like crazy recently ??

Levels of engine smoke I am seeing currently are something I would only recently I have only previously seen on aircraft like the Mig29 and similar ?

You're not imagining things, that's actually a thing in DCS currently. I hope they'll fix it soon.

Funny you randomly get huge clouds of smoke while parked and idling.

It seems me engine performance at 20+k angels is lesser these days in general as well, but I am going to compare that against stable before I go spouting those stories as fact ?
