Most importantly, the poorly implemented in GTR2 is something that is not visually understand the intensity of the rain. It is impossible to understand how much the rain. He was always the same, almost. Your work is good, but it also does not solve this global problem of the game.

Great job, thanks
I think it is great for people to have the choice between your version and mine
Anyway the point is that gtr2 rain engine is not really accurate so it is difficult to make a really realistic rain animation contrary to race07 which is much better : raindrops are changing direction whether you drive at low or high speed...and wipers animation of course

Finally got motivated enough to build a new version from scratch. As far as updates are concerned, hopefully this is it for a while. I've got some racing to do...

great update
...the only thing which bothers me a little is your rainspray.dds : more transparency and a little bit smaller should be perfect because we can see it into cockpit when we follow an opponent close to rear bumper...just my opinion

I've got to agree with GTR233... the RAINSPRAY.DDS was a rough WIP update. I'll be making some adjustments to it. If anybody is reading the comments, my personal recommendation is to use the "HQ Rain" version by GTR233 in the interim. It's actually quite good, and I've used it quite a bit myself. -- Version 1.5 coming soon!

Just asking because the original one didn't run, but before i try this, the one i downloaded the other week works really well (great work btw) ....

confused... sorry.

Gonna take a stab at answering your question. Yes, this is an entirely new version. All prior releases are packaged as well, in the event someone prefers one of the older versions. Personally, I think the early versions weren't that great. It was more of an experiment at that time. I've also cleaned up the folder structure a bit to try and make it a bit easier to understand what revisions are included. The 'GameData' folder includes the options I personally prefer. If you're having trouble with it not working, ensure you have the textures in the proper folder (GTR2\GameData\Teams). Most of the files are arranged to reflect the installation folder structure. Optional files are simply dropped into the 'Teams' folder. Lastly, the "Readme.txt" explains what the various versions are.

Oh, GREAT! I just spent hours (good fun) comparing your 5 version 1.3 variants, and now I'm TWO generations behind!? Enough with this rapid prototyping!

But seriously, I really like your "basic" AL RAIN FX v1.3 style. That's the only one I've seen that produces a dense enough spray from the car in front to sometimes force you to leave the racing line to see the next corner! And that's as it SHOULD be! I also like the heavy raindrops you used the in Style 1, I think it is, or maybe Style 2. (Don't have my notes in front of me.) Great to have a variety to choose from to simulate different rain "intensity." THANKS! Now I can't wait to see what's different in the version 1.5 ones!

I know... it's been a whirlwind of updates! I thought I'd post a quick update and be done for a while. However, looking at some of the other effects, I knew I'd have to update them eventually. My toolkit, and abilities have improved since the initial release. Furthermore, GTR233's criticism was valid and motivated me to address the other parts. I'm testing a refined version of the RAINSPRAY effect you mentioned as well as toying with the RAINDROP effect to produce a bit heavier rain, match the windscreen animation a little better, and eliminate some of the banding issues. All the while, I'm also trying to get it up and running on PnG3, which is a lot more work (editing material properties, tex size, etc.)
Version 1.6 TBD!

...buckled down and revisited the more neglected portions of this mod. The number of options has been reduced, though the quality has improved in my opinion. Lots of trial and error with different techniques and trying new ideas. There has been some half-@$$ery in the past on my part, mostly because I was dreading the hours to be spent in editing software and testing in-game. This will most likely be the final update. Hopefully many of you will find the latest revision satisfactory. Thanks to everyone who commented and provided feedback!
... and all I wanted to do was race!

Haven't had time today to look at version 1.5, but now I'm glad because tomorrow I can jump straight to 1.6!

Thank you for all the effort you've put into this. Your RAIN FX were ALREADY--as long ago as LAST WEEK ()--a MAJOR contribution to the quality of my (still) favorite racing sim!

great work and nice update : rainspray heavy versions are good for open wheels and light versions for closed wheels mods IMHO ; I'd prefer rainspray soft edge light as this one shows very little water into cockpit during heavy rain race. So yeah your v1.6 is the best and looks like an excellent final version to me too
