I looked closely in my game conf. file and I could not locate the PALNoTracers or PALNoSmoke Trails .
I tried creating it just like it says  , but the game would not start up like that . Anyone have an idea ?
It would sure be nice to disable the smoke trails - they really cut down the FPS in the game :-\
By the way---fantastic mod

Rascal,
               that isn't a typical option. You have to add it. Check if you have a [Mods] section in your Conf.ini. If not, just write a new [Mods] line at the end of the text of your file. And in another line (in your new or former [Mods] section) add the text indicated with PALNoTracers = 1

  Regards,
                        Pablo

       Thanks Much Pablo !

... the conf.ini is situated at the root of the game, ALWAYS make a back up FIRST, before you modify it ...  ;)

Excellent mod.

What I'd love to now is what does this exactly mean?

> Other planes (you don't need that the game engine waste precious time in making detailed trails as above).

What is the difference between those trails and the ones originating from player plane?

The more detailed smoketrails are those of the bullets emitted by your own plane, because are the ones that you really see from close. The others, the ones generated by other planes, and specially the ones generated by AAA, which are perceived from away, look much weaker.

So the others have less visibilty distance, less vissible (clearer and thiner trails), becoming less frequent and less perceivable.

Hi Pablo

May I ask for a new compatible version for the new 4.12 Patch? Your Mod is absolutely needed!
