These appear to be missed in rB4235fe37d6aaf9963ddda23ccaec26a483b6a580

This is intended as a backport for 2.82

Have you checked that these options actually work? From looking at the code, I don't think they do.

That's code from the old smoke simulator, not used by the new one I think.

@Ray molenkamp (LazyDodo) said he would look into it over night and see how hard it would be to fix. However its is unlikely this will get into 2.82.

I took a quick peek, I'm not sure what kind of freaky hybrid C++/Python monster this is, but tip of the hat to @Sebastián Barschkis (sebbas) that he got this working, i politely bow out of this one.
