So, the intention behind this is to have more smoke present mainly for accidents or for drifters, or movie clips, or whatever. I think it adds a lot of immersion. But the possibilities are very limited. Besides the fact that smoke creation is not dependent on heat or affected by motion, but only slip/contact, which means a lot of restriction in terms of versatility and realism, there are still a few functions missing that could create a better or more universal result. But it's not available, so i made 3 variations for the tyre smoke.
The drifter is the thickest and with the longest duration (FPS hit is inevitable but depending on your system, should be manageable)
The small (primarily for Start situations) configuration, is the least FPS infringing as it cuts out very early. The medium ( primarily for lock-up situations) is a longer/bigger, but both should work alright for lockup and start scenarios alike. I've also created a new texture, but the size is not much bigger than the default either.
In any case, as always, BE SURE to make a back up of YOUR ORIGINAL files before installation. Either rename it or put it on another partition/hard drive/folder. I have included the original default files too, if that's what your preset was.
The path of them is as follows:
* For tyre smoke configuration .ini files location (tyre_pieces, tyre_smoke, tyre_smoke_grass):
* For the smoke_0 texture location:
If you have feedback, feel free to let me know. Else I hope you get something out of it and enjoy.
Sorry i can't post a video, as the video file is always choppy, although i'm well above 60 fps. It's probably due to my ancient CPU...
