question about vapor on wings.


Recommended Posts

They are implemented since early, access release. Settings maybe set to low details? Lower QNH to have less air pressure, temperature lower and you should have enough "moisture" to provoke condensation vapor from the wings. You may try higher altitude and keep in mind it's mostly about AoA of the wing, and not necessarily speed alone...

yea, I don't think so, unless I have a buggy install. I did everything you said and still got the same results, all my settings are maxed, and tried it on all maps with the recommended weather conditions, and still no wing vapors. maybe I'm still missing something?

I thought the weather effects on vapor were part of an upcoming core update. Also, I vaguely recall one of the devs mentioning a long, long time ago that the current vapor system can't handle variable sweep wings.

For me it looks like this (Caucasus Freeflight mission):
