Well can we Oleg?
It could be a option below clouds or something calles realistic weathering. It was introduced in the IL2 demo and I'd really like to see it back. it gave a verry nice atmosphere to the game and would increase it's "feel" even more. Please consider this for a patch since the add-on will be to close. Please Please Please Please...

Could the rain wash away all that oil I keep getting on my windshield for some reason http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif?

My bet is they removed it to save framerate, just like the long grass.

Raindrops on windscreens and huns when I hit 'em,
Simon's Campaign on the Battle of Britain,
Bagging a 110, watching it spin,
These are a few of my favorite things.

They should put both those enhancements back in just make it an option in conf.ini http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif It could give us all new reasons to upgrade http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

While indeed a cool effect that was present in the past, I'm, not so convinced that realism is a good argument for it.

Being a VFR flyer only, I haven't been out in bad rain, but even at speeds as low as 100KIAS, especially when behind a prop, raindrops don't exactly stick to the windshield. On some areas, less exposed to wind, you see a thin spray pattern. That's it. While sitting still on the ground, you do get larger drops, though, and they can run in many directions due to the conflicting forces of gravity, prop wash and the curvature of the glass.

with apologies to Burt Bacharach

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head,
But that's cuz a La5 just filled me full of lead,
Blasted up my 'pit
Those, raindrops keep fallin' on my head, they keep fallin', so I just

Did me some climbing towards the sun,
Cuz nothing's more dangerous than a Hun in the sun,
One that you can't see; oh,
I'm never gonna stop the rain by bailing,

Because one thing I know...
Those specs they use are the stuff of Russian fables,
It won't be long til a hammerhead can turn the tables...

Pulled back the stick and then reversed,
The La driver tried to follow, then he cursed,
Blew all of his E,
My...20s kept banging on his kite, they kept banging

Till his wing fell free...now he's not bothering me....

that rain on your windshield idea is really cool indeed...i saw it in the il2 demo too...

can't they also do that with oil, fuels and coolant leaking from planes you are flying behind?? that is some realism i miss in flightsims...
In IL2 you just get a few black stains on the windscreen when the engine is hit, but in B17 your windscreen slowly turns in an oily mess http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and do the same with other fluids..
