Hello, hopefully somebody can advise.

Raindrops are not visible with Patch 3.0 anymore if I drive ie Open Wheelers.
I was quite excited to try the annouced improvement as with earlier patches drops on the helmet were nice but could be improved.
I can see it raining but not drops
Thanks for your help and advice

regards
Sven

With Patch 4.0 still a problem. It just dont look nice.
Driving an open wheeler was such a great experience and immersion, but rain now with the DK2 is just not good.
Or is it me doing something wrong ?
Any advice is much appreciated
Thanks

Raindrops on the visor will likely not make it back.

Here is a quote from Robert Dibley (Render Lead at SMS):
It's probably not going to happen because they are so close to the eye - which means they are very costly (they cover almost the entire visible area on both sides) and for many people quite disorientating (if you try to focus on anything that close it tends to make your eyes hurt)

Maybe something to keep in mind for the future though, as higher performance graphics cards could certainly cope with the render cost, and the disorientation is very much a personal taste thing.

That is really sad. Not a good reason.
Wearing a helmet and then raining, it was close to be real.
