A typical rainy day..

I decided not to use the Rain module. So I used a mix of objects and GUI buttons to get this effect:



The splashes on the rocks are faster and much smoother in the game though, the poor GIF gives an idea only. Splashes would appear on almost every vertical surface in the way of a rain drop :P

Also I tilted the rain "lines" a little, so I can play with the wind direction by simply flipping the loops in the view (laugh)

The rain looks impressive even in GIF-form, and I love the bright green grass,
to many artists make everything blueish-grey when it rains.

Glad you like it Blondbraid ;-D
Yes I agree on the overuse of grey colors in rainy scenes. I actually find things get more saturated in rainy days (laugh)

I don't post very often, mostly just a lurker. I've been following this since the beginning though and I must say it just keeps getting better and better! Definitely looking forward to this gem :) oh, by the way, send some of that rain my way :) We've been in a drought for over 2 months!

Cool! Shame the characters reflections don't move, but otherwise it looks great!

Looks great man!  I like the glowing yellow rain as it diffracts light from those lamps there.  Gives it that touch of authenticity.

Wow, I love how the light is reflecting off the rain as well!
That looks gorgeous. :-D
This is going to be one very pretty game by the time you're finished.

Thanks SilverSpook and Blondbraid!

Shame the characters reflections don't move

Each character has 88 sprites for the normal view, Carter has.. more than 500 for actions. Let's see the ripples are 6 frames, so I need to add 6*588 more sprites.. er... yikes!

Edit: thanks Danvzare! Love all your attention to details! No wonder I have to keep polishing!

Here's a close up with some changes:
