Rain Effects - Enhancement Script 1.5

NOTICE: This mod does not work on all modded vehicles, because some of them use their own dirt maps. You can still make this mod work on those vehicles by finding the vehicles dirt texture (usually in the vehicles ytd file) and replacing it with the raindrop texture found in the vehshare.ytd provided with this download.

To make use of the menu, you need NativeUI (https://github.com/Guad/NativeUI/releases/download/1.7/NativeUI.zip) installed into the scripts folder!
Default Hotkey for Settings Menu: F5


Many of you already know Per_zeus' raindrop texture mod (https://gta5-mods.com/vehicles/raindrop-texture-beta). But to enjoy the texture you had to manually set your car dirty (i.e. by trainer). Also your car became wet when you drove over dirt, which did not look really realistic.

With this little script the cars will only get wet when it makes sense...
Once it is raining all cars will slowly become wet, and when the rain is over, the raindrops on the cars will slowly disappear/dry again... You can also enable the Raindrops on Screen effect though the settings menu (F5) which makes the raindrops fall on your gameplay camera!

Have fun!

- Vehicles which are covered from rain (under a bridge / garage etc.), now slowly dry. Vehicles already parked there are also dry
- Rewritten Raindrops on Screen Effect fixing some issues and ensuring new raindrops will only appear when the camera is actually under rain and not covered
- Added new settings menu (default key F5) to allow you controll the effects (NOTE: If the menu annoys you you can permanently disable it)

- Installer should now work on all machines (I need some feedback though)

- Readded manual installation method (automatic .oiv install is still included though)
- Minor changes to the path structure

- Updated raindrops on screen effect & textures
- Changed the vehicle_generic_mud texture which might resolve some issues with ugly looking cars
- Changed installer to display information on which files are going to be changed/added
- Updated readme for those who do not want to install using the automatic installer, but prefer to install it on the manual/classic way & added information about the mods folder method

- Added "raindrops on screen" effect. It is disabled by default (because it might annoy some people). In order to enable it go to the settings file ("scripts/raindrops/raindrops.ini") and enable it there by replacing #screenRaindrops=0 with #screenRaindrops=1
- Installation now uses easy One-Click installation Tool by OpenIV (package installer)

- Added config file with three settings: effectIntensity (default is 100%), 'wetTime' (the time it takes until the vehicle is completly wet when it starts to rain) & 'dryTime' (the time it takes until the vehicle is completly dry after rain)
NOTE: You can edit the config file and reload it using the DEL button ingame (that way you don't need to restart GTA5 when messing around with the settings)

- Increased the time it takes for vehicles to completly dry (now about 2 minutes)
- Rewritten they way the script handles spawning vehicles: i.e. vehicles spawning shortly after rain will now still have raindrops instead of being dry (more realistic)

- Improved raindrop textures (especially for the windshield, thanks to kizacudo)
- performance improvement

- slightly improved transition from dry to wet and vice versa
- fixed issue where transition times were depending on your current FPS

- initial release

- Credits: Per_zeus & kizacudo for the raindrop textures

    Please use the mod folder method for this mod! (this also simplyfies uninstalling as you do not need a backup for the modded rpf archives, but simply need to remove x64e.rpf from the mod folder & remove the raindrops folder from the scripts folder)

    Install OpenIV -> open with administrator rights -> Go to "tools" -> Click on "ASI manager" -> Install OpenIV.asi.
    This will allow you to use the mods folder and thus prevent GTA5 from having conflicts with modded rpf archives. Have fun!

    @Jay-Em Hm hard to tell... Maybe your OpenIV not saving correctly or something? Actually it should not interfere with other mods other than vehicle mods with custom dirt maps.

    @Phoebe with that amount of information I will not be able to help you... All I can tell you is that if it was installed correctly it would most probably work :D

    @Jay-Em I just checked out QuantV and it could indeed be an issue because of the following feature: "optional vehshare included (HD Metallic Paint, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, license plates...)". Installing this "vehshare" would overwrite the raindrop texture but if you install QuantV first and then my mod it should actually work (it would overwrite QuantV's vehshare though)

    @uPrizZ Oehh.. that sounds entirely plausible.
    thnx for the tip.
    I am going to test it.

    @uPrizZ I think it's probably conflicting with one of my mods sorry haha

    Is there any way to get it work with add-on cars?

    @gustavo_soares Yes, view the NOTICE at the very top of the description.

    There is mud on the cars I drive.
    Emm,I think R* have overwritten our 'vehshare' from another 'vehshare' we don't know where it is.

    I followed all instructions step by step
    then I started my game, found out that the mod doesn't work on stock cars ... It only rains on my screen not the car :/
    any possible solution ?

    Actually forget what I wrote in my previous comment, car wasn't dirty xD

    can you make this for fivereborn?
    sorry if this question is stupid

    @Okami Senpai either fivereborn supports this singleplayer mod or I cannot change it. either way, you better head over to GTA:Network instead of FiveReborn. There server owners will be able to script mods like these...

    I installed the NativeUI, and the mod menu still doesn't show up. Also, how do I uninstall this?

    February 25, 2017

    Nevermind, I got the menu to work.

    Are those textures 4K? They're very resource demanding even when there is no rain. When I disable the textures, everything goes back to normal.

    @Jong-Leo In OpenIV hit control+f3 and type vehshare.ytd & click search. You will then see where ever vehshare file is. Update.rpf - textures, overwrites x64e

    @Oblachko There is just one big thing I still want to do here and that's being able to have the rain textures and at the same time keep the dirt textures which is currently impossible, though. But if you have any ideas other than that feel free to share them and I'll take a look into it :)

    @uPrizZ Really like the script

    @uPrizZ great work, this script really adds some realism in wet weather.

    It works great with default cars, but I can't get it to work with Saleen's 2016 STi even though his sultan.ytd isn't using it's own dirt maps. Any suggestions? Should I ask Saleen to make dirt maps for his model?
