REALISTIC RAIN (Old Heavy Rain) same project, different name ;)
--------------------------------------

I recommend read this thread carefully


This mod will not add puddles on the road.
This mod does not modify the duration or probability of rain (game options you have for it)
This mod does not modify the fog.

THIS MOD TRY to improve the effect of rain, sounds of rain, sounds of thunder, effects on the windshield, particles of rain on the wheels...

What's included this mod?

- Better textures of Raindrops from inside cabin
- Better Rain Spray/Particles of the wheels (Truck and AI Traffic)
- Rain more intense from inside cabin
- Better rain sounds from inside cabin & outside view
- Better windshield effects
- HQ thunders sounds

Works with any Mod Map (ProMods, RusMap, etc.)

Different versions to choice:

- Realistic Rain
- Realistic Rain Lite version (Reduced numbers of raindrops)
- Realistic Rain for NaturaLux (use this version if you have NaturaLux Mod) <-- Only ETS2
- Optional Addon: Increased volume for thunders sounds files

Changelog:

v2.6

- Some smalls tweaks to the windshield (all versions)
- Added more thunders sounds (all versions)
- Added: New version Realistic Rain for NaturaLux Mod, In this version the file of the rain spray particles has been deleted, the particles included in NaturaLux will be seen. Also added "smoke.pmg and pmd" files, the color of the rain spray particles will look correctly (thanks Kirill for the info)

JUST use Realistic Rain for NaturaLux if you have NaturaLux, If you don't use NL, you can use Realistic Rain or Realistic Rain Lite.

v2.5

- Rain sound from interior changed (more realistic sound)
- deleted: Addon Alternative rain sound

2.4.1

- Tweaks for better rain effect from cabin
- Increased a bit : Particles rain of wheels (IA Traffic & Truck)
- Addon: Alternative Sound rain : Audio changed, better audio & more realistic :)
- Addon Increased volume for thunders effect: Now just contained files thunders sounds increased (deleted rest of files)

v2.4

- Added tobj files for compatibility with Season Mods by grimes (don't use with Frosty Winter!)
- Added new Optional Addon: Alternative rain sound from inside cabin (more realistic)


v2.3

The file "game_data.sii" has been removed for added better compatibility. Now include "int_sound_config" file . You can modify these values as you like, or, you can delete this file, but maybe you hear very low sounds effects...

Not necessary to use "Sound Fixes Pack" mod of Drive Safely. But I RECOMMENDED for a better experience!

Tested with:

ETS2 1.34.x - 1.35.x (DX9 & DX11)
ATS 1.34.x - 1.35.x (DX9 & DX11)

I recommend use DX11 for better perfomance!

The same file now works with ETS2 and ATS :)


HOW TO INSTALL:
IMPORTANT! : This mod works with Realistic Graphics Mod, Project Next-Gen, NaturaLux, JBX Weather... but you need to place REALISTIC RAIN ON TOP!

Also, since 2.4 version works with season mods by Grimes, Autumn, Summer etc... but don't use with Frosty Winter!

I am using the one with the increased sound effects and I must say this is the best Rain Mod so far. What are the commands to force the different weather conditions? I only know "g_set_weather" but is there more?
