Raindrops On Vehicles - Enhancement Script 1.4.3

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.


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...
No more messing around with trainers, just an enhanced weather experience!

Have fun!

- 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!

    @WitcherPL Sadly that's not possible. With this mod you will only get raindrops on the screen like in Forza racing games...

    Hi, great mod uPrizZ. I have only one question, with this mod installed there is no way to get the call full of dirt, right?

    Would be awesome as an addition mod not as a replace for dirt

    Hey, bro. Nice mod! Loving the idea of it!

    I have encountered some problems though: I have this mod installed through the mod folder method from OpenIV, edited x64e.rpf as described - cars in-game are having the wet texture, if I drive over dirt roads, it applies dirt on cars in addition to that. Problem is... every in my game seems to stay wet, the dry function doesn't work. What I also saw is, that when I drive in clear, sunny weather for a while, my car doesn't get dusty, it get's wet - it suddenly applies the texture of this mod. Funny thing is, that NPCs cars are also permanently wet, but not dusty/clean/wet according to the current weather.

    I also tried changing some values in the raindrops.ini, reinstalling the mod didn't change anything on that topic. After all, the mod seems to be working, only the dry function and all cars being permanently wet, instead of dusty after driving in-game hours in clear weather, are not working for me. I have also checked my .log files of SH - nothing strange.

    Any idea what the problem might be? For a heads-up: rated 5 stars :)

    @iTzyaboyG sounds like it doesnt load up the script for some reason... is ScriptHookV .NET properly working? Are other scripts from the scripts folder working?

    Thanks for the reply! I got it working lately - I had your files in the scripts folder itself, not in scripts/raindrops. I saw that after trying out the automatic installation.

    Awesome mod! 5 stars still standing :)

    Great mod. Thanks a million. But the problem is that cars are getting wet even covered, under a roof, inside buildings. It doesn't look realistic enough.

    @Slash_Alex I am aware of that issue and already tried to fix that half a year ago. Sadly there is no way I can check properly whether the player is covered from rain or not. I am looking into it though and as soon as I find a way you'll get an update :)

    God bless you.

    I wish there was a way to have this mod but also have dirt textures as well.

    @Weirdoutworld I don't see much problem 'cause cars are getting dirty anyway even when they are wet.

    @Slash_Alex The vehshare.ytd has the vehiclegeneric mud, window dirt & tire wall dirt textures replaced with the water drop textures. The alpha of the water drops kinda looks looks dirty but its not the actual vehicle dirt textures.

    @Weirdoutworld you still get actual dirt around the tire area. Its different from the "generic mud" texture.
