Contrails appear at around 6800m ~(20 000ft) depending on weather conditions.
They are modelled in the game, that's for sure.

How high were you flying and what map were you on? I think the height varies on each map. But don't expect to get them under 6000 odd metres.

Anyone know the facts?

Took a ride in a F4U on the Okinawa map on a clear day.Contrails started at 7000 meters.

Like they say, contrails are there. High altitude contrails do not appear until you reach a certain height. Like in reality.

Would graphics settings make a difference?

My conspiracy mad friend says that contrails are mind control agents released by our governments, maybe the governments in il2 are less oppressive! Lol.

Maybe. I couldn't tell you what settings I was using at that time. Try different ones and see what happens, but notice, in the pic I posted, there is no contrail on my plane, even though I am above others leaving them.

Contrails don't start immediately behind your plane, they appear a few seconds after you pass. It's because the hot air takes a while to cool down and the moisture takes a while to condense.

The "T" key gives you pretty red and green contrails http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif You have to be really, really high to get the ugly default all natural ones 20K or above http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Just make sure you're around 7000m and you should see them.
These pics are taken between 6700m and 8000m. The lower groups of Forts don't have contrails.
