    I like Assetto Corsa, but I have one minor gripe.
    It's in the form of the amount of tire smoke at race launch...especially during large on-line events.
    It's way too much... and way too dense.
    I don't want it fully removed, just 'toned' down a bit.
    Does anybody currently have a mod to do that?

    Pretty sure you can adjust that in the options already, it's in the graphics settings somewhere.

    Yes I always have it at very low. It is still much fps eating, so I adjusted the density of the tyre_smoke.ini file in assettocorsa/system/cfg. Word of advise, make a backup first and its easy to mess this up. There are a few good tyre smoke configs in the modding/misc section.

    Already at lowest settings there before I posted...
    The only other option is to turn it completely off...which I'd like to avoid.

    Search for Shred's Smoke Mod, should be available here somewhere. It gives the smoke a proper blueish tint, and reduces its density noticeably. Have been using it for a while and can recommend it.

    I don't know much about the tyre_smoke.ini and I like much smoke so I can't tell you the settings you will need. But:
    if you open the ini, the bottom line will be "[Triggers] , "SLIP_LEVEL". Experiment with that setting. Higher = less smoke. There should be a setting which allows smoke when drifting but reduces the smoke on race starts :)
    AFAIK the InGame setting reduces the "grass smoke" too (when you drive through the dirt).
    So put it InGame back to high and the SLIP_LEVEL=0.9 in tyre_smoke.ini (I have 0.6, a 'chinese extreme smoke drift mod' has it on 0.3).

    Hope this helps :)

    PS: Shred's mod has indeed really nice smoke, too less for me but maybe you like it!
