No Run way rain reflections

Recommended Posts

V4, with client update. Win 10 creators.

NVidea 1050 ti with 4G GDDR5.

There is, maybe, the slightest shimmer.

Definitely no puddlin' going on.

I do get wheel spray.

 

Thanks!

PS: Is there a way to set the fuel/payload at the start screen

before you load the scenario?

For all default airports? I only fly to payware these days.

So the question is: Is P3D going to catch up with XP or XP is going to catch up with P3D?  

P3D . Slopped runways, rain effects, etc... 

XP      Study Level Aircrafts, ORBX type scenery etc....

I would love to see rain effects on the runways and on my windows.

I thought this was a default airport thing. It's up to the developer otherwise.

Infact. But looks like there is no wet effect NOWHERE. Not in default airports. Not in addons. Not even where it is supposed to be by developers.

Simbol maybe is just trolling us :-) Or he don't use P3Dv4

I think you guys will find that the wet runway look is now tied into the reflection settings. ?

Well These guys are correct  I don't see any wet reflections on default airports and I just moved all my bars to the right and nothing changed.

EHAM by FlyTampa (no wet effects):

LOWW by FlyTampa (WET Effects):

Now, LOWW is showing a wet runway effects, so it must have been developed that way.

Ok thanks. At least i am not crazy :D That wet effect in LOWW is very good.

I found out that for default airports the file related should be "runway_bump.bmp" (or dds, same).

Tomorrow i will try to draw a better image to show the reflection. It will never be like FlyTampa's LOWW, but it will be better for sure.

This is default EHAM with thunderstorm on my rig. i see puddling.

Not sure, the picture looks to me like the default "Tarmac" light reflection instead of wet runway, you have definitely wet wash, we also get that is more about the wetness of the runway. 

Can you confirm your PD3 version and can you also you post a picture of your display settings? maybe we are missing something!

Sorry, I'm totally wrong on that. Just checked and seems to have no relationship to reflections.
