    Morning, I just wanted to report this bug as I have spent time tracking down the exact reason which reproduces the bug so hopefully it can be solved.

    In wet weather, reflections on the road surface artifact and move where they shouldnt when in VR. I use a pimax 5k+ headset at "Normal" FOV, so this is significantly more than headsets such as Rift. I have run the sim using "Enabled compatible with parallel projection mode" on and off, as well as using the RF2 ini file tweaks as below, in both 0 and 1 mode to compare.

    "VR Projection Mode": 0,
    "VR Projection Mode#": "VR Projection Mode: 0 =
    default, 1 = not in-plane displays
    HMDs",


    I can confirm the reflections are bugged in every instance, but with VR Projection mode = 1, the reflections multiply 2 or three times accross the screen as well as flashing in and out etc.

    I think this comes down to how the reflections are rendered with respect to the headset and hopefully the Dev team can solve this now that it is brought to attention but an update on this would be very appreciated.

    Link to 2 videos and some pictures to show what is happening.

    VR reflections are messed up in VR.
    Since most people don't even realize the issue exist don't expect this to be high priority. My guess is it will depend on how quick of a fix it is... and how much of impact a fix will have on performance. I could also be that if they are re-working rain it may only get fixed once the rain update is completed.

    here is my post regarding reflections issues while in cockpit using OR.
