I've seen heavy rain and wet runways with live weather. I even posted here a couple times when that happened so people could check it out. 

Same...and its easy to make it rain also,,so I dont know,  it may not be the right time or the right place compared to whats going on in the real world but it does happen.

I'm sorry. That was mean of me. My warped sense of humour some times gets the better of me. Lol

I thought “nah that’s impossible.  But I better read every line in the chart just to be sure” 😅

I don't like how the rain works, it's completely invisible at speed and even when on the runway, it's just water drops on the windows. No fogging and no effects near the borders, it looks fake.

I know it's all very funny for some of you who have no issue - and I also can't see how the cable makes any difference - but what about 'changing the cable could cause some sort of graphics reset.'?  Does that have any merit, or am I just imagining there's now rain on the screen which I didn't have before? And please don't bother replying if you are only trying to be terribly humorous.

But with light real weather rain do you have wet runways? because in my case, are dry unless I set the rain preset

Not with light rain, only with heavy rain. The few times I saw wet runways with live weather I checked the metar and it had a +RA on it, which means heavy rain. 

And this is not with any weather addon, it's with MSFS live weather.

It is a bit random.

Sometimes with the default rain preset you do not see wet runways until it has been raining a while.  Other times it never gets wet.  But then one time I switched from the rain preset to "Clear Skies" and the runway stayed wet.

On the other hand with the nexus mods "Scattered Showers" preset (which is how I usually fly VFR) I have seen a wet runway while it is raining that instantly dries the very second the cloud moves away and the rain stops.

It really is unpredictable and hard to say what is actually going on. For example is the wet runway appearing after its been raining a while a bit of very clever and realistic programming or is it  just  a bug where the runway takes a while to load the wet textures ? really hard to say.
