Hi Rod,
Took a look at the read me file in the Hollis Harbor boats section.
I think the [contact_points] section that is to be used to replace the existing one  in the aircraft.cfg is not complete.
It only includes the definitions section; the actual contact points are not included and as a result the boats do not show.
Maybe the "always_use_avg_surface=1" part to be added is the important part?

Hey Rod - is that the Leconte in 4.4? If so how did you get the smoke to work? All I get is a cotton ball sitting on top of the boat.

Now that I think about it you have to update the panel sounds to hear the switches click.
"dsd_p3d_xml_sound_x64.dll For P3D v4 only" is used.

There is a discussion somewhere here at rtmm on how to do this for the aerosoft beaver but I can't find it - I used the same procedure for the flight sim super cub.

Think this can be done with ENVTEX also.
Plus it gives you a range of resolutions to choose from - not just 4096.

Interesting web site I stumbled onto:

Hi Steve,
I'm seeing the same as Karl; I just re-downloaded and double checked with the latest version of winzip.
Two redundant effects folders.

I'm only seeing it with tongass boats - have tried several different wake effects files with the Leconte and all produce the stripped wake in p3d 4.5
I 'm beginning to suspect it has something to do with the model files for those older boats.
I updated the anacapa and leconte with model convertor x to p3d4.4 and still get the stripped wake though - so may be something in how it is set up to produce wakes - way above my pay grade.

It's more pronounced from a distance - don't know if it was there in v4.4 or not. I didn't notice it until kaha pointed it out but I was already running 4.5
If I get curious maybe I'll reload the 4.4 client - doesn't take too long...

Hi Dex,
Running 4.5 also and I'm seeing the stripped wakes too - but as near as I can tell only with the Tongass boats;Leconte, Matanuska, Anacapa, and the fishing boats.
Maybe also the Marignan, the one used at Halibut cove.
Looks to me after watching them they are spawing in chunks thus the stripped effect
Hope this helps,
