    I have not done anything with python, but I could probably figure out how to use it someway.

    But basically, it just copies the fx_offset code to other aircraft to make it faster to mod things?

    Pretty much. I think it can be useful even if you don't add the extra wing tip trails.
    Also, do you know you can have the effect activate only when the craft are moving forward? You just need to add the key "killOnDeactivate" : false to each emitter and then the trails will live their normal lifespan, but they wont continue being generated when the craft stop moving.

    okie.

    And about the movement part, I actually left it like that because I think it looks cool even when they're not moving. killOnDeactivate is not needed either, because I could just change the "idle" part of the fx_offset to "movement" (I did this with the avenger).

    I might change that in an update though, it will reduce client lag most likely.

    Lol, okay so I may be getting a bit carried away, but how would you like it if the trails are made for each of the thrusters of all the aircraft? xD

    I thought about doing that earlier but I think it would become too distracting.

    Too distracting or TOO AWESOME?

    Could you make it so the effect is turned off when the unit are sitting stationary?

    @KillerKiwiJuice an idea for the T2 aircraft:

    Would it be possible to give T2 aircraft a pair of smaller trails close together as that would give the effect of twin engines and differentiate it from t1...?

    if you install both air trails can you somehow select which effect you want.. or do you have to uninstall one and only have one installed?

    You will need to enable one or the other in PAMM, if both are enabled then there will be no trails at all.

    This mod breaks the pelican in the Galactic War. I'd advise copying your effects array into the vanilla file to fix the issue.

    Is it possible to have only the trail in your main color and not the sparkly secondairy color?

    I realy love the idea but when i tested it it felt more like my little pony then a wargame, no offense.

    Hey!

    LOVE YOUR MOD! ALOT!

    for team colored trails (and maybe also rainbow) would it be possible for the particle/bubble (dunno how to call it) effet to stop when the unit is at a standstill?

    I also wish they would turn off the trails for avengers.

    Yeah that seems to be in demand so I'll update it when I get home.
    So, this is kinda easy to personalize if you know where the mod is located. Inside the mod folder, all you need to do is delete the orbital folder (It's deep inside)

    Well if you have Notepad++ I can teach you how to remove the sparkly particle emitter from the file :)
