    You need to update your smoke settings. Those things are smoking like old drgw tunnel motors on tennessee pass.

    My newer Road Power units shouldn't smoke like an old London Chimney from the 1800's lol. I have to tinker with it too. I just started OR, so I'm still a noobie. Changing the sky would be nice also..just don't know how yet.

    Not by default, they had to be overset to appear decent in MSTS.
    Look for the Exhaust line or lines in the engine file. The stack opening is too narrow on most.

    You are looking for this line in an eng file (there may be more than 1 depending upon design)

    The number in bold is the one you want to adjust. The is the default DASH9 after adjustment. Sometimes I get lazy and just put .3 in which works in a pinch.

    Below is comment section explaining all three lines:

    the format of these little blocks is as follow:

    offset.x offset.y offset.z
    normal.x normal.y normal.z
    width in metres

    defining the offset from the shape pivot point
    where steam / smoke should appear, the direction
    it should go and the width of the nozzle

    Hint... Also try out 3DTrains dieselsmoke.ace file.... IMO it is the best.
