Default Blotchy Looking Smoke Problem?

I am having trouble in GWX 3.0 with smoke appearing very Blotchy and unrealistic. After playing around a little bit I actually found that if I barely lift my periscope above the water line the smoke appears to look correct. However, as I raise my periscope further above the water line the smoke becomes very Blotchy and individual smoke blobs appear that look terrible. I have an unmodded SH3 install that does not have this issue using the default smoke. It is only happening in my fully modded SH3-GWX 3.0 install. Below is my mod soup from JSGME:

GWX 3 Wilhemshafen,St Naz,Schluese and xtra ships V7

Add TMT ThomsonsShips fix

GWX_DFa-Flag&Pens_2010

EnvSimAct_10

I also have HSIE's patch, 4GB fix, SH3_XPSP2_Res_Fix_for_1.4b, and ImprovedSmoke1_1 installed as well. I continue to have this issue even when removing the ImprovedSmoke1_1 mod. I am running at 2560x1600 resolution. I also still have the blotchy looking smoke even when running at 1024x768.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
