Massive smoke domain

Hi all,

I’m working on a scene that involves a spaceship flying through vast spaces (a few thousand blender units). I’m working on making the fire simulation for the engines, and the domain is gigantic—with adaptive domain on, of course. However, I can’t set the resolution higher than 512 divisions, and with the size of a domain covering even a fraction of the whole flight course, that’s hideously low-res. Any tips?

EDIT: Got it fixed, moderators, you can delete this. =)

Instead of asking for this post to be deleted, why don’t you post how you fixed it, so others with the same problem can learn? A [solved] thread usually includes an actual solution, if you know what I mean.

Good idea. I just realized that I could parent the smoke domain to the ship. I thought I had to use adaptive domain…
