Rain on the windshield

Postby llsouder » Sat Mar 05, 2016 12:19 am

I increased the shaders levels and now instead of seeing the rain, I see it hit the windshield, which is super cool. I have some questions.
One, how do I get the rain back so I can see it falling?
Two, since most of my flightgear usage will be without an aircraft model, how could I still get the windshield effect without a wind shield. In other words, what is the rendering basing the rain effect on? Is there a "windshield" model which cause the effect to render or some other magic?
Could I/Should I make a simple model which has just a windshield?

-> wait for the next version, it's a bug of the current one

Effects/glass.eff

Is there a "windshield" model which cause the effect to render or some other magic?


The effect (like all) need to be applied to a surface and I'd strongly suggest to make it a transparent surface ;-) Some documentation what it can do and how to configure it.

But yes, you can just place a quad into your field of view and render all effects onto that. Or a hemispherical shell.
