Is this true, or is it an error?

This statement is true. New effects were indeed developed for the Hornet. It was the first aircraft in DCS to feature over wing vapor and rain over canopy. It does not say they developed new effects to replace the ones we currently heve.

I used to think that the vapour effects on DCS were a bit exagerated, but after watching this video they actually seem quite right:

I think the LEX Vapor looks pretty good!. But not the WING Vapor. The whole thing had to look much more (similar to running water) fluid.

Personalities are not shaped by beautiful speeches, but by work and personal effort.

@Rudel_chw check this one, I would say there is still missing some of the vapors, specially on the wings them self and also on the leading edge extensions.

And last but not least, we still miss the Mach barrier so called vapor cone special effect.

 

Some more interesting reading about vortecies, where and how they generate and what structural modifications were made on aircrafts  F/A-18A/B/C/D because of them: http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/planes/q0176.shtml

Nothing misleading in my opinion. Which part isn't true? there are vapor effects, and there weren't before the Hornet was released.

 

 

Check the date on the IG post. January 16, 2021. The Hornet was released into EA years ago. The description should be in simple past tense or otherwise specify that the new vapor effects were added way before the date of that posting. Otherwise it insinuates that there is some recent improvement or change.
