View Full Version : Rain??

03-17-2005, 10:48 PM
Ive just completed 2 patrols.. and Ive yet to see a drop of rain?

Ive had lightning, thunder and extremely choppy waves and dark skies, but even though if I come to full stop, I can hear rain.. I dont see a drop.

Running an X800Pro.

Anyone else noticed this?

Its been raining like a biatch the last 3 days on the patrol i am on right now. And if its not raining, the fog is so thick i cant see a thing until its 50 meters in front of me. I literally cant attack anything because of it. It really sucks...yet it is awsome at the same time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Anyhow, using the dreaded 6800GT

I dont think you have a problem. I have seen thick clouds, thunder, real heavy seas...but no rain.

People seem to think that heavy seas=heavy storms. This is not ture. heavy winds=heavy seas which have nothing to do with rain.

As far as you hearing rain when you stop..well that is kinda wierd. Are you sure its not just a SFX of the water lapping against your boat or something.

Well to make things more confusing, the Weather report from my Nav guys states Heavey Precipitation.

Doesnt look very heavey to me lol!
Unless he is confusing a little bit of sea spray.
