Yes Bay Lodge V2 Smoke
« on: March 27, 2019, 02:12:06 PM »
Decided to start a new topic on this.
The new revised Yes Bay Lodge v2 has the detached smoke problem - when viewed from a distance the smoke is rising 10' above the chimneys.
This is in P3D v4.4

Don't know what to tell you. Here's what I see.

If you look at the file dates, you'll see that nothing has changed for a number of years. So, nothing in the scenery has changed for a long time other than some updated documents, sound, and simobject files..

I can confirm that Yes Bay Lodge V2 has the P3Dv4 detached smoke effect problem which means it probably uses the miniaturized cabin for smoke and that needs to be changed outsince P3Dv4 does not display that the same way as v3 and FSX do.   I think Doug was making these changes.  I will alert Doug.

Just downloaded it - the file is dated 3/28/2018, not 2019.
Is that the right one?
If so the smoke problem is still there.  :(

I’m going after it one more this afternoon. I used the STD Stove for the object. Rod has made us a better object so the smoke won’t like it is coming out the side of the stack.  I post here when it is fixed this afternoon.

If you didn’t see this recent change, go to your browser and uncash. Your browser will remember objects and pictures so it runs faster. Happens to me all the time.

OK, I took out the STD Stove object (which seems to leak smoke out the side of the stovepipe) and replaced the two smoke objects with Rod's "smoke ball".  He's given us an object where the smoke stays attached to the object, even at higher altitudes.  It is a black ball, that you can (as you are doing the development), alter the size of it to something the size of a beach ball. You then "place" it where you want it and then reduce the size to a minimum. The smoke stays emitting from exactly where you placed the black ball. Thanks Rod.

The new Yes Bay (updated 2.1) is 'up'.  Notice, when I do a "refreshed" ... the refreshed version and date becomes a hot link. You can click on that link and it will give you the reason for the update.  Yes Bay is now Version 2.1 as of 03.29.2019.

Damn that looks nice... 8)
Probably not a universal fix for all the other leaky chimneys huh.
