V5 Update 7/15/12 Fixes problem with raindrops when users
were enabling ENBs and not seeing Rain/RainRipples.

V4 Update 7/4/12 Made rain a bit thinner and faster.
Rainripples were also changed to be a tiny bit more visible.

Makes rain heavier and more natural looking and should
work with other lighting and weather mods.

Works with URWL, RLWC, RCRN, More Rain, Water Redux,
and without any fps drop. Load this one up after them and
after any mods that alter raindrops.dds or rainripples.dds.

To test the rain just open the console and enter "fw c8220"
and that should give you a good idea of what the rain is about

V4 will probably be the last update on steam unless i feel i need
to tweak the particles again.

For the nexus version of RealRain and more information

***More Versions of RealRain***
RealRain Extended

RealRain CoT

Decided to make the Better Weather for RLWC Nexus only

To test the rain just open the console and enter "fw c8220"

Torches for Skyrim

Q:Will this slow my fps or cause ctds?
A:No, its just 2 texture files that replace the vanilla
textures at about the same size and if your getting ctds
thats more likely conflicts of other mods or scripts that
are loose. My mod has no scripts or bulky files so thats
not the problem.

Q:Does this work with other mods?
A:Yes, my basic version works with all other mods even ones
that change weather, rain, and lighting. Now if you install
my plugins that change weather however they will clash with
other mods that do the same thing and you will have to
choose between the plugin or the other mod.

Q:My game is acting wierd after installing your mod.
A:I doubt that. Check out this link to troubleshoot installed mods.

recently I've noticed when it rains in skyrim, on occasion I will be in a place like Whiterun, and the rain will be invisible. I won't see the splashes from rain, but when I walk around I can hear it, as well as see the foot splashes. don't know if it's this mod or not, but I thought I should mention it

Does this mod change how rain falls through open-cell roofing? For example.. I'm in a bandit camp and I go inside of the bandit leader's hovel; it has a roof over it and it suddenly starts raining; however, the rain begins to fall through the roof, as if not there at all~ I was just wondering if it made the rain avoid clipping through entities that already exist like roofings.. :P

Hey man i know you possibly get comments all the time for this, but i fuckin love it dude it makes it so good to look at i mean this is just a mod for something so small that you'd look over so easy but this makes it so much better and keep up the good work man.
