    Hi,
    i was doing some tests according the new Dev.Guide, but i`m not sure, about the values for the json file. The rain drops are looking more static instead of moving?
    Code:
    {
        "Desc":
        {
            "NumberOfSets":6,
            "MinLengthSqrt":0.25
        },
        "Set_1":
        {
            "Color":
            {
                "R":255,
                "G":0,
                "B":0,
            },
            "StillDirection":
            {
                "X":+0.0,
                "Y":+0.0,
            },
            "MovementDirection":
            {
                "X":-1.0,
                "Y":+0.0,
            },
            "Description":"Top"
        },
        "Set_2":
        {
            "Color":
            {
                "R":0,
                "G":255,
                "B":0,
            },
            "StillDirection":
            {
                "X":+0.0,
                "Y":+1.0,
            },
            "MovementDirection":

            {
                "R":0,
                "G":0,
                "B":255,
            },
            "StillDirection":

    I see Tuttle responded to you in the dev guide thread, but I loaded up a base car and saw very very few (actually none, but I wasn't sure I just couldn't see them in the small area of sun reflection) trails indicating movement on the body. The windows had multiple. The drops themselves definitely don't move, they just fade away after a bit (less so on the body, but with the car moving around it wasn't easy to stay focused on one patch of bodywork to be sure).

    So I'd check against stock content, that way you aren't trying to achieve the impossible.

    Wait, so are you seeing something on official cars but not on yours, or yours is showing the same as them? (and if the latter, what's wrong?)

    Are "veh_ripple_map.png" and "veh_ripple_map_video.png", "raindrop_desc.json" in the Team folder?
    If you haven't, put it there.

    Could you share what was wrong, in case other modders have a similar issue. If it is searchable here for future reference it may be helpful for others.

    @Imre Bende you posted in someone's old thread and gave no information. Now you're not helping modders yourself by not explaining what you had wrong.
