In fact,In sometimes the rocket engines don't need to generate smoke,for example,if you build a SCI-FI stuff,to a large extent,it don't need smoke and just exhaust when it takes off from a planet with atmosphere.
Too much smoke also can cause lagging,when I was making an effect that need engines count over that of three USSR N-1s' first stages,The smoke they generated caused my new laptop into a white screen ,but the whole part count is lower than 2K,and without drag and collisions.
If we can have a selection of rocket engines' part properties,set the selected engine can or can't generate smoke,that will be pretty good.

    @Typer So if we can get a button in part properties category to decide which engine don't need smoke and which need smoke,this will be good.

    Launch steam or the smoke trail? Launch steam and smoke trail can toggle on/off.

    @InfinityTechnology It would be also pretty cool if jundroo change the smoke generated by the rocket motors with the new particules of the lunch pad , because theese new particles have he ability to change color in direct ! :)

    It would also be nice to be able to make changes to engine plume. Maybe in a tinker panel or something. Sometimes I feel like it's too short

    It is clear that sometimes you will need the smoke...But if the smoke is too much with the works......
