at the risk of being shouted at,

Recommended Posts

Hi,does anyone know if there is a way of making the wet runways work in FS9.1, I didn't start this thread to be shouted at, but I must admit that I would like to see these textures in FS9, as it's about the only thing I have really been miffed about not having.I know that someone else has managed to get some of the other textures from FSX to work in FS9,Thanks for any suggestions,

You won't be able to see wet runways in FS9. The reason being, code has to be written to tell FS9 that the runways would be "wet". There is code to make the runways "snowy" in FS9. If you go into weather settings and set up snowfall, after several moments the runway will take on a snowy/icy appearance. Sometimes just for the "humor", I will set up snow in Phoenix and snapshot the snowy landscape and icy runways.Sorry to say, "wet" runways never received the same type of treatment in FS9 and prior versions. Therefore, the textures that display when there's no rain will also display when it rains. Good question though...Regards,John

If you download Real Environment Pro from Avsim Library, you can configure the sim to show wet runways.CheersBC

"If you download Real Environment Pro from Avsim Library, you can configure the sim to show wet runways."Curious whether the sim shows the wet runways only when it rains, or all the time. -John

The wet runways aren't merely textures, they are bumpmapped, thus involving the ligthting engine of the game, and basically letting the ground reflect light. Fs9 lacks the technology to do that.-
