Funky Trees Smoke

Collab Between @RandomUsername and Chancey21
This was the mushing together of a few things I wanted to try:
I wanted to build a drift car
I wanted to try a new smoke effect
I wanted to learn how to use Funky Trees inputs
I wanted to enter the Funky Trees Challenge

It works by quickly hitting wheels against the ground using the touchdown effect native to the latest 1.9 update:


RandomUsername happened to also seem interested in these goals, so I built a simple test rig with Drift Smoke that activates when you slip sideways on the wheels. The Porche 911 Body is from AircraftArsenal123, And RandomUsername was nice enough to coach me through the build and even tune the traction for me.
Drift Smoke Piston Input: pow(clamp(abs(AngleOfSlip), 0, 1), 2)

alternatively clamp01(abs(AngleOfSlip) -10) if you want a less severe effect
This works by measuring the Angle of Slip of the car as the main value and clamping it between 0 and one as an input for the piston. It has to be the absolute value of the angle of slip because otherwise, it will give you a negative value for one side. This allows the piston to lower when the car slips sideways, triggering the spinning wheels to touch the ground and start the smoke effect.


Thanks,

    @Shippy456 It's basically a programming language introduced in version 1.9. Now it has been used to build just about anything.

    Alright, so this is how I do it on my iPad, however, I don't know how to do it on pc. Firstly, search up "Signature" on the appstore. My app is purple with a white feather. Download it and choose a font that suits you and enter your username or any name you'd like. Take a picture of the name and go to imgur. Click on upload image and take the photo you took of your username. Copy the link of the photo and head to simpleplanes.com. When you get to the aircraft that you want your picture to be displayed on, enter this into the desc. ![](image link) However, make sure that https is replaced with http. And add .jpg at the end of the link. That's a mouthful, and I think sounds quite confusing. So if you need any more help, please don't hesitate to ask.@shipster
