Contrails Pro

Contrails Pro is a module for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 that adds realistic contrails to AI aircraft. Easily installed, it will instantly add beautiful, long, detailed contrails behind high-altitude AI aircraft in your Flight Simulator sky. You will no longer need a radar to see big airliners cruising above you!

Contrails Pro comes with its own optimized display engine, which allows displaying contrails in unprecedented detail while keeping high frame rates. When looking from a close distance, you will see the complex contrail structure thanks to the detailed textures supplied with the product. Just like in the real world, contrails will slowly dissipate in the air and will glow in red during sunrise or sunset.

There are excellent customization options allowing you to specify the contrail length, density, dispersion, minimum altitude for contrails to appear and a few other settings.

Nice little add-on BUT,it does have a huge impact on frame rates so you have to tweek it about a bit first, Do not leave the default settings as they are you will have to reduce all the settings to get decent frame rates, it also disables your own aircrafts 3D contrails so you either have none or you can choose theirs but it is not all that, Proberly not worth that sort of money but once set up correctly does add some realism to the sim

Absolutely beautiful! It transformed the sky for me, brought it alive. I set density to 60%, that made the contrails look much more credible.

Before installing ContrailsPro I had contrails from some other add-on (Flight Environment?), but they were too short, uncomparable to this program.

I really recommend Contrails Pro!

Regards,
Hans

I just wanted to update my previous review I have now corrected the problem after troubleshooting and I think the product is great with a few modifications and adjustments to the values. The one thing I don't like about the contrails is that they pulsate behind the aircraft.

It's a nice program for about an hour and then all the planes quit making trails and I don't know how to fix it. I bought the program it's not the demo and all the AI traffic will not create trails after about an hour running, it just stops. Any quit fix to handle the problem?

RKAPPS - FSREALISTIC PRO MSFS
Michael
What's here works really well for the most part. It's not perfect and has a few bugs. The most worrying thing, though, is that the developer seems to have stopped updating it. As it is, this is a functional but incomplete product.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Graham
Brilliant scenery, and excellant after sales service from Richer Simulations. I had problems installing in P3D v5.3, but after an exchange of two messages with RS, it was all sorted out. Extremely fast response on their part. Turns out I had a problem with my SODE installation which prevented the tarmac and aprons showing. Uninstalled and reinstalled SODE and hey presto! All good. Very pleased. This scenery is compatible with P3D v5.3.
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 2 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price

FRANCE VFR - LFRK - CAEN CARPIQUET MSFS
damon
One of the best France VFR airports so far, texture quality appears better than some of the earlier airports from the packs. I think the earlier airports are 'ok' quality but priced accordingly, but I was surprised how much better Caen was. still not completely on par with the big name developers but not at that price point either, I think for the price represents very good value and great addon with the France VFR NW pack. 4 star quality but 5 overall due to price
TROPICALSIM - BUENOS AIRES EZEIZA SAEZ MSFS
Peter
This is a decent Tropicalsim airport. It's basic, but does the job.
PAULO RICARDO - SANTOS DUMONT AIRPORT (SDU) RIO DE JANEIRO CITY LANDMARKS (INCLUDE) MSFS
Peter
Really well modelled. Currently this is my favourite South American airport in MSFS. Great attention to detail and makes full use of the textures, PBR and night lighting MSFS has to offer. It also has some scenic and challenging approaches!
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Peter
Overall disappointing. Textures are not great. Night lighting is poor, except for the car park! Hopefully it gets an update.
MARIO NORIEGA DESIGNS - CAPRONI-VIZZOLA C-22J VENTURA MSFS
Kenny
Phenomenal bang for your buck with this one. This little jet is tons of fun to fly around. I enjoyed the cockpit modeling a lot, as it really does give off that strong 1980's aesthetic vibe. Fuel consumption feels about where it should be for a jet like this. Systems functionality is decent, though as with the vast majority of MSFS modules, don't expect 100% fidelity. Everything that really counts is there though, and more than just the bare bones. The flight model is fairly forgiving, though that's pretty much true for basically all MSFS aircraft. You will want to ere towards the longer options of municipal airport runways, as you're not going to have the same stopping distance as something like a 172, but that makes sense given the type of aircraft it is and the amount of energy you'll have on touchdown. All in all, would recommend. I kind of wish the civilian variant had actually entered into full production and had been a bit more popular. (Though it did see service with the Italian military as a trainer.) This must have been a joy to fly.
