...you might consider it as "eye candy" - well, I think a nice atmosphere (a realistic one) is necessary to create the "I'm really at it" effect.
Thatswhy we need realistic vortice effects - hundreds of yards of white vortice effects, trailing from the wingtip of a plane, pulling high Gs of flying at high AoA.

Similar to those ones:

The current effect is okay, but underdevellopped - compare it to that one:

While the condesation being visible isn't that important to me (it would be nice, though), I wish we had slip-streams modeled in the FM. Who knows, since we seem to be testing the BoB flight model, maybe one of the up-coming patches will include it.

Slipstream will be included in BoB, or so they say.

About vortices... How many people look and stare at the stuff coming off the wingtips?

I wouldn't be so all-inclusive when you say "...WE need...". Yes, it would be nice, but I certainly don't NEED improved vorticies.

Similar to Orheim, that is very, VERY low in priority in my book as well...
