Description

Maybe the large size is intentional, but at that scale the effect looks rather bad because of the spacing between instances of the effect.

Please could you provide some system and OS specs please? Player.log includes the GPU capabilities which is important in diagnosing this problem.

Further improvements have been made since this report, so could you please retest in 1.4.1?

Oh, sorry for not noticing the request for retesting earlier. Recreated the approximate conditions of the test in 1.4.1 (same same return vehicle, returning from Mun free-return flyby; there's some extra mods installed but none of them touch aero fx. As you can see from the screenshots (which mainly show the worst angles/zoom level), same result.

The return vehicle by the way is a Mk1 Command Pod with two Mystery Goo containers on the sides, the usual parachute+drogues, barometer+thermometer, and most importantly, a science Jr. between the pod and the heatshield; I think something about the science Jr.'s geometry makes this worse, since the effects are a bit more normal on other craft.
