FSX/P3D – McCoy Water Landing Effect v4. These effects are individually assigned to a specific aircraft or boat overriding both FSX & P3D’s default wake. Five effects of various sizes are included. Visually v4 looks a lot like v3.2 but some improvements have been made such as a compatibility fix of surface decals and airborne particles when subjected to wind, re-direction and velocity adjustments of the splash effect, a greatly simplified installation for P3D v4 and the first update for FSX since v2.0. A short video is included to demonstrate each size. Although intended for aircraft these effects can be used on boats 38 feet or smaller. Sound file included.

P3D – McCoy Water Landing Effect v3.2. This package replaces the default water landing effect in Prepar3D v3.2, not for v2.5 or lower. Five levels of intensity are included, a short video is provided demonstrating the five versions. The water effects will now display on the surface even in foul weather, all airborne particles are affected by wind & drag. Emitters have been adjusted for a more realistic speed and softer appearance. These effects were revised based on what I’ve learned from creating ship wakes and are more realistic compared to v2.5.

P3D – McCoy Helicopter Rotor Effect v3.1, this package replaces two effects and adds a subtle helicopter wake. The two effects are rotor wash for dirt and water. The water effect now adheres to waves of any height and the dirt effect will now adhere to the sides of small hills with gentle slopes. Helicopters can now be individually assigned a specific effect, five sets of various sizes are included and can be used in any combination. All emitters have had their scale, velocity, density, offsets and color adjusted for a more natural and softer appearance compared to v2.5.
