Rain

Recommended Posts

I was just watching an FS9 video on Google video and it made me recall the great rain effects in FS9, especially the way the rain hit the windshield of the plane and how the raindrops formed on the windshield as the plane move through the rain. Very realistic.It's disappointing that FSX left out this effect. I really like FSX and in many ways it is more advanced than FS9. Still, I'm wondering why the designers would choose not to show the way rain is depicted as it is in FS9.

I seem to remember flight unlimited 3's rain effects were the best. Raindrops blowing across the windscreen like the image above (seem to remember the VC's were terrible, though).

He should use Rain-x on that glass...... I don't know if it's FAA approved, but will get rid of the lines. In fact at that speed you won't even see the rain at all with Rain-x (or a similar product).
