How do I get rain/snow on my runways?

Recommended Posts

ADMIN, feel free to move this post if I have posted it in the wrong forum. My problem is, how do I  get live rain and snow on my runways? There is nothing more unrealistic than landing on a dry runway after a cloud burst or a snow storm. FYI    I am using ASN and REX4. I am almost certain that I had this before, but am I dreaming?

In my experience it only shows with default sceneries.  But I will happily stand corrected :-)

Some developer do seasonal textures and some of them do wet ground surface, but not all.. So what Scenery exactly do you have without snow / wet surface?

Just thought I'd add that the upcoming freeware for Detroit International Airport is supposed to have snow blowing across the runway (during the winter season).  Pretty neat affect!

Not sure what Pat is asking - as far as I know only Flytampa offers drifting snow at Montreal Toronto and Copenhagen payware  - you can see it here on Robs excellent video which reminds me have to aks George to make sure its included in the new KBOS

 Very possible Gavin as maybe my early days of FS is what I remember default airports  and aircraaft

Thanks for that guys, its a very complex situation.. What is needed is  weather engine  developer  needs  to  have snow and rain on the ground at  airports  to match the current weather conditions that are being generated by the weather engine

But the weather engine is not responsible for the ground textures of snow and rain. the developer of the scenery must take care of this.
