Hi Vince and Welcome to the Hangar. :thum:

Maybe you know if these effects work with helicopters in the wet?

Cheers - Dai. :old-git:

Hello everyone and thanks, sorry for my late response.   Dai, to answer your question, no it has no effect on helicopter rotor wash but after a well deserved rest I may make an attempt to improve helicopter effects too.

 

Thanks again

Vince

Here is a look at my current water landing effect; the video is not part of this download.

 

Cheers.

Looks awesome.

I saw your water landing effect for FSX on simviation, is this ground effect going to be made available for FSX, or have you moved on to P3D solely? :(

Hello Captain Coffee.  Unfortunately after almost 25 years of Microsoft Flight Simulator I have moved on to Prepare3D.  Have you ever considered trying P3D?

Thanks for the reply Vince.

Not ready to make that leap yet.

I just got back into FSX,after a long hiatus since the days of Combat Flight Sim 1, regretably soon before P3D came out, and have too much invested in FSX (now working brilliantly) that I don't feel a need to switch yet. I grabbed your water effect for FSX and my amphibs and floaties thank you kindly for your nice work!

 

Cheers,

Matt

@ Vince - never saw a truck with wing struts. Does it fly?

John

 

OMG...took me a day to figure out what this^  comment meant.

 

John...i'm pretty sure that is an RV and an awning support in his Avatar picture...but thanks for the LOL once I realized what your comment refered to...because now I can't unsee a wing strut and wonder if another awning on the other side might give it a bit of lift at speed. :D

Yeah, I had that figured out, but the effect was just so good I had to point it out.

Matt, I understand about your investment I had a fair amount of money invested too.  And John the truck has been known to fly from time to time. ;-)

Hello fellow simmers. I’ve posted two more effects, one for Helicopter rotor wash and an update for the Ground Landing Effect now call “v2.5b”.  Here are some you tube links.

Terrific, Vince - the helicopter dust/spray effects are excellent. Thanks for sharing! :thum:

Now for the stupid question: "Will the effects work in FSX?"!!

Cheers - Dai. :old-git:

Hello Dai.  I stopped testing in FSX in 2013 but it should work.  In fact all of my effects with the exception of the engine wash should work in FSX but don’t hold me to that.  If it does it would be nice to know.

Just had a thought, if my effects work in FSX I suspect they will have a different density and velocity, their appearance may not be acceptable.

All effects are at flightsim.com, you can probably find them at a few other sites too.  Didn’t know if I could have uploaded here, they are relatively large files.

Hello Dai, did you get the helicopter effect to work in FSX?  If not I’d be glad to make a FSX version that you would own if you could give me a helicopter for my own personal use, I promise not to share it.

This should be the final version of all effects.  If anyone has suggestions on web sites I should upload these to please let me know.

Thanks everyone.
