That iFly rain effect is only available on FS9. Unless they change something after release.

Despite iFly 737 is definitely not a gorgeous as PMDG 737 NGX one thing still remain in favor of iFly, the rain effect.

 

It was told by PMDG devs that such an effect can't be inserted because they have to cut another effect, well, I would vote to have the rain effect cutting another one, to choose.

 

Let's hope PMDG thinks again about such a missing, it would be the cherry on the cake.

Wow... You know, it's very rude to scream at people on forums.

 

It's not a functional effect. It's not that it can't be done, It's that it won't be done. End Of Story. Final Decision.


Thanks!

I feel as if PMDG should sticky a topic at the top of every forum, titled "things we will not do"

 

1. No wx radar

2. No rain animation in the NGX

3. No folding wings

4. No wingtips for the -600

5. No 757/767

6. No A380

 

and so on...they could save themselves all the repeated requests and unnecessary duplicate threads.

Well the -600 doesn't have winglets so I don't think I've seen anybody on this forums asking for it. To provide a bit more explanation to the original poster.....

FSX removed the traditional way of rendering rain effects in the VC as a animated texture. This was how it worked in FS9 but for some reason it was removed in FSX. Developers got around this by introducting an animated polygon with a texture on it. The problem is FSX has a limit on animations. So things like flaps, VC switches, throttles and such all take up animations. In the case of the NGX, they modelled the cockpit environment so completely that there was little or no animations 'left' to allow for a rain effect. The J41 is an example of how the rain effect is implemented inFSX on aircraft that hadn't reached this animation limit. The raineffect is not just one single animation either, so you can't just get rid of one thing. It varies by aircraft speed and all those unique animations need to be created. Perhaps with a model not as coex it would have been possible but PMDG is focused on simulating the procedures and operations of the aircraft not just the visual aspects of it.

 

Hopefully this is a good explanation.

Just fly your NG to Madrid, Barcelona, Almeria or anywhere else around there. As everyone knows, the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain, as opposed to staying mainly on the plane.
