hello,

 

I can't see any rain effects in ESSA when I'd set the weather to grey and rainy in P3Dv4. Do I have to use special settings for this feature. I have installed the latest version, 1.10.

It is coming in the service pack, there is currently no rain effect.

Hey @Marcus Nyberg, just a quick question. 

I have problems with fps and pbr rain effects. Is there a way to disable them?

 

Hey Florian!

You can disable ESSA_GRD_2020_PBR_Rain.bgl, that will remove the pbr bit of the rain effect. The ground will still turn reflective when it's raining but if the PBR is the issue then this should help :)

 

You find it in the FTX_AA_ESSA/Scenery folder. 

 

However, this is only the case for P3Dv4/v5.

If you are using FSX there is no PBR effect and only the default reflective effect but that can't be turned off and I don't think it should have any FPS impact either.

 

 

 

Cheers,

Marcus

Thanks a lot for your great and quick help Marcus!! 

With my P3D I have the weird problem that I have massive stutters at PBR sceneries with overcast or rain just because of the pbr, the frames go crazy like 15-30 fps all the time. So I try to minimize the risk of getting that. I know that normally PBR sceneeries should be better on fps. However I'm still too lazy to make a complete reinstall of v4^^

 

Cheers
