Realistic Rain v4.1.1 [Update 2 Dec - 2021]

Forum rules
SCS as a company do not wish to have paid mods on this forum. While we understand that not all paid mods use the Intellectual Property of other companies/people, it is very hard to moderate what is and isn't acceptable when money is involved. There are also concerns that it could look unfavorable to potential work partners going forward if SCS allow mods that may potentially use unlicensed branding.

Realistic Rain v4.1.1 [Update 2 Dec - 2021]

This mod does not modify probability of rain (game options you have for it)
This mod does not modify the fog, weather or sky textures.
You will find rains of different intensities that are controlled by the game or Weathers mods (not by this Mod)


Features

- Improved textures of raindrops from inside cabin (windshield & windows)
- Increased amount of raindrops on the windows
- Improved textures of rain (outside)
- Better effects and behaviors of the raindrops on the windshield and windows
- Improved water particles/spray textures of the wheels (Truck and AI Traffic)
- Realistic rain sounds: Rain falling in the cabin of truck, and realistic sounds for "outside" rain
- Realistic thunders sounds & greater variety (about 20 high quality sounds/samples)

Note: Thunders will be heard in an interval between 1 to 5 seconds when seeing the 'flash' (lightning), simulating as IRL

The number of raindrops on windows will vary depending on the intensity and the direction of the rain (controlled by the game)

Compatibility

- FMOD Support. No errors in game log
- Compatible with All DLC's and it should work with Mods Maps (ProMods...)
- Compatible with Sound Fixes Pack by Drive Safely
- It should work with other Weathers/Graphics Mods, But remember put RR above in priority.

Note*: You should know that Autumn Seasons By Grimes disables thunders. The lack of these aspects is not from 'Realistic Rain' mod.


Requeriments

- Must have high priority in Mod Manager. Realistic Rain ABOVE of Weathers/Graphics, Maps and Sound mods.

This is perfect with the new wiper speed introduced in 1.35. Thanks!

I have gone back to 2.1 as I cant hear the rain hit the cabin in 2.2 for both ATS and ETS2 and thats with the louder sounds mod. prefered the louder rain sound.

Edit - back to 2.2...I increased the volume to 0.36 and put the pitch back to 0.99.... much more realistic for me.

@R_A_ZZ Did you place the mod in high priority?

Also, sometimes, the game saves something in the cache memory, and you need to add the Mod to the list, load the game, save and restart the game, try this.

loud rain was set to 0.32 pitch 0.85 in 2.2 so I raised them as I mentioned above... thanks I love this mod.

@R_A_ZZ : Thanks for the info. I will keep it in mind for future versions, I try to find a balance so that the rain and thunders are heard correctly but do not interfere in other Mods (Sound Fixes Pack, Traffic sounds cipinho etc ...)
