wolf_howl15 Disappearing smoke issue!

Hi all.

Sorry if this has been brought up somewhere else, I wasn't able to find a topic on it though:

I'm using The Wolves of Steel mod (truly awesome, thanks). The smoke from other ships disappear and "restart" once every minute or so, anyone else have this issue? It's quite immersive breaking, so if anyone knows of a fix please share!

Thanks!

Update: Checked and the smoke 'restarts' every 33 seconds or so. This does not seem to be an issue with the vanilla game, only happens when I run TWoS.

OK so testing with the mod linked in the previous post it seems the problem is solved! I'm installing it after the Wolves of Steel Mod.

I've just come across one merchant ship and the smoke doesn't reset anymore. Not sure if it messes up the smoke a little bit, but you guys should definitely try it out and see what you think! That resetting smoke is horrible. : )

Sounds interresting. Vecko, does this mod work with TWoS?

That mod works fine with TWoS, I've been using it for a long time.

It should work but I have avoided it because, IIRC, stock "smoke bulge" graphical glitch with this mod will be even more pronounced...
Also, CTDs during thunderstorms are quite possible since mod's files do not contain few TWoS particles tweaks I done long time ago...

Cheers and Thank You for the beer once again!
