Question Searching for a plugin...

There used to be a plugin that kicked up lunar dust when you landed. I remember someone creating it around the same time as Moonbase Alpha, to make that scenario more "realistic". I can't find any reference to it anymore in this forum or at Orbithangar. Anyone know where I might find it, and if it still works?

So included in this pack
Computerex Add-on Pack
is 'orbHoverDust', compiled for 2006 though. I made unsuccessful code-noob-attempts to compile it for both 2016 and 2010. It would need modifying to reference altitude above surface rather than mean radius (get Altitude(AltitudeMode,) etc).

There's another
Moon dust
which seems a bit of a hack as it adds a very thin atmosphere to the moon, causing engines to display particle streams. With 2016 I don;t think this would be too smart due to the new terrain support.

I think the second one was the one I was thinking of. Thanks!

Though I agree, adding an atmo to the Moon is a bit of a hack.

Regarding dust/smoke/effects during landing in general... I believe no addons will display them correctly, as long as this will not be fixed:
