I saw this video from Lucaas and noticed when the real-life plane landed it gave off white smoke, while X-Plane did not. I did some research and turns out, its because of the gear rubbing against the runway. I thought, why dosen't X-Plane have it. This is the first time I realized something that happens in real-life dosen't happen in the game, there may be other features that happen in real-life that I don't even know about.

Hi Adrian,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.

Does the following link found at https://x-plane.com/manuals/desktop/index.html#enablingasmoketrail help?

Hey Glenn,

Smoke trails and landing gear smoke are two different things. Smoke trails come from behind the plane while landing gear smoke comes from the gear itself. I swear the landing gear smoke used to be in the game. I already know about the smoke trails.

it is in the X-Plane, are your graphics settings low for visual affects? i run it at high/maximum settings and have tire smoke, it appears to me you have lower settings than i do which may be the reason you dont see tire smoke if you could get me a picture of your graphics settings that would be great

Adrian. You might not be aware but at present tyre smoke is not recorded in Video Mode. If you watch yourself from another view whilst landing you will likely see the smoke.
