"Eliminate" the wingtip contrails

Post by Vistara 001 » Thu Mar 18, 2021 3:23 am

Eliminates the wingtip contrails. The thin white lines that appear at the tip of the wings when you make a hard turn.

How to make it work
Step 1> Create a input and a output directory in same location where you have saved main.py. (Terminal : mkdir input && mkdir output)
Step 2> Open terminal in the same directory. Windows : py -3 main.py Linux bash : python3 main.py.
Step 3> Required files are in output directory.
Step 4 > Enjoy!

This can also be done just by opening the dat and changing

VAPORPO0 8.75m -0.14m -1.55m #VAPOR POSITION (Wings Swept Back or no-VGW)
VAPORPO1 8.75m -0.14m -1.55m #VAPOR POSITION (Wings Spread)

To

VAPORPO0 9999m 9999m 9999m #VAPOR POSITION (Wings Swept Back or no-VGW)
VAPORPO1 9999m 9999m 9999m #VAPOR POSITION (Wings Spread)

Just curious, why would you want to do that?
I knew that they were hostile, but I couldn't take the chance
So I flipped the switch to outboard and said "Boys, it's time to dance"

And they asked me "Where ya goin'?" as I started to diverge
Said "I've had enough of this shit, man, I'm goin' to the merge"

'Cause BVR is great but now it's time to have some fun
So Darkstar, Judy Judy, I'm goin' in for guns

So that it's not obvious when you're pulling a certain amount of G's. The Dark Blazes used to do this back when they still flew.

Interesting trade off there. I like the visuals but it would be nice in a dogfight.

It is supposed to be used when you have a large number of aircarfts.
