Rain Effects - Enhancement Script 1.5

Download
uPrizZ
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!



CHANGELOG:
v1.5
- 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)

v1.4.3
- Installer should now work on all machines (I need some feedback though)

v1.4.2
- Readded manual installation method (automatic .oiv install is still included though)
- Minor changes to the path structure

v1.4.1
- 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

v1.4
- 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)


v1.3
- 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)

v1.2
- 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)

v1.1
- Improved raindrop textures (especially for the windshield, thanks to kizacudo)
- performance improvement

v1.0.1
- slightly improved transition from dry to wet and vice versa
- fixed issue where transition times were depending on your current FPS

v1.0
- 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!

    @uPrizZ I don't think it's working the menu pops up but when i look up i don't see the effects?

    @uPrizZ I have native UI. I think it might be conflicting with another menu from another mod.

    Does this replace dirt texture? So car only can get wet or get dirty, there is no way to implement both at same time?

    @vithepunisher
    You mean the raindrops on screen effect? Make sure everything is correctly installed and also check whether the effect is enabled in the settings menu

    @tibidisdik44
    could be. You can always change the menu key in the raindrops.ini

    @RSV
    At the moment not possible no. But you still get mud around the tire areas when driving over dirt. The only thing getting replaced is that dust-like vehicle overlay.

    @uPrizZ, thanks for answer. It would be cool if both are possible, but if not, is it somehow possible to toggle them on/off manually in game, or it is needed to be done outside game?

    Unfortunately I don't know much about modding, but there are snow and dirt textures on cars in vanilla game, maybe you could replace snow one with this rain and make it to trigger when rain starts if that is possible :D

    @uPrizZ For some reason it's still blank but when it rains I get the wet car textures. weird

    @tibidisdik44 that means it didnt even install the textures properly, you need to completly reinstall. Have you used the .oiv auto-install option?

    @RSV
    I already have that in mind, but atm you cannot apply the snow texture via script. Once this is possible I'll update this mod.

    Oh I didn't knew that, ok great than, keep up great work :)

    @uPrizZ I reinstalled it twice, once with the oiv and once manually.

    @tibidisdik44 are other mods working correctly? are you using the mods folder method? Is ScriptHookV(.NET) correctly installed and up to date? It could be anything, hard to tell the reason...

    @uPrizZ Oh, man, your new version is fantastic. Vehicles are not getting wet when they're covered at last. Thanx a lot.
    God bless you!

    @uPrizZ Why is there mud on every car I drive with rain on?

    @earthspace1 because you have not installed the rain texture correctly. instead of mud it should show the rain texture...

    hmm.. odd. The raindrop overlay alternates between broken glass and, indeed, raindrops. Oh, and even after installing the .oiv via OpenIV there's somehow just glossy mud on the cars. It seems that the texture-import bit of the oiv doesn't work correctly.

    I guess there's some other mod interfering. (quantV maybe?)

    Oh ,and manually importing the rain textures after first completely removing the .ytd, does nothing. Still fully muddy cars. Odd. GTA is not ignoring the mods-folder (what I first thought) because running VisualV from the mods folder works fine.

    I can't notice anything different with the cars? I installed everything correctly.

    @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
