Rain Graphics

An option to remove the graphics of rain

Im not entirely sure if this is possible, but if it is it would greatly improve FPS for a lot of people.

You could still tell if its raining by looking at the clouds, but just without the rain effects.

As a potato laptop owner , I'm supporting this since rain hits my fps pretty hard.

I don't think that's something possible , but I am not 100% sure , also have you tried lowering your graphic at lowest, including all those Anti-Aliasing etc, it will help your FPS to boost a bit and if possible try to play in offline mode or disable overlays, I was encountering same (Crash and FPS issue) and both things fixed after I started playing on offline mode since steam doesn't sync stuff(friends list etc) in background when you are in offline mode, that's different that I have stop using it since no more potato , let me know if that helps , it helped me :yes:

+1 from me if it is possible, spencer is right probably I don’ think it is possible but when rain starts my FPS drops between 10-15 frame.

perhaps disable rain but add a weather indicator on the hud
it makes playing on toasters easier

In my opinion this is a good idea if rain really effects FPS that much.

As much as i'd love this to be a reality, i believe it will be really hard to implement. It is a really good idea for the people with Toaster PCs but probably cant be done, but if by some chance it can. that's a +1 from me.

I'm not sure that this can be implemented since it's a key part of the game altogether so it would be very hard to implement if not impossible to implement. However, if this can be implemented then I am all for it.

I may not run a toaster anymore, but when I used to, rain caused my FPS to drop from the normal 15~ to around 10 or less, which made it very hard to do much of anything. This might not be possible to do, as has been previously stated, but if it could be done I’d be all for it. Some people still do run toasters, so “+1” from me.
