rain texture

03-06-2005, 05:32 AM
Hi, I want to create rain in my map. I already have a tutorial and it said that I have to use a rain/particle texture. But I don't have one.

Could anyone help me out by giving me a link to a site that has rain wads or something?
(I already searched for a rain wad here and on google)

make an info_doddetect entity somewhere in your map and set weather type to rain in the properties tab.
if it's a source map make a brush covering the area you want it to rain in and apply a no draw texture. then use tie to entity to make the brush func_precipitation.
then change the precipitation type to rain in the properties tab.

thank you!
(makes me wonder why the tutorial said to apply a rain texture to an entity, then...)

That was the old pre 1.0 style of making weather, you can see it still on some old CS maps.
