    Question No raindrop on chase view during rain (storm, heavy rain, light rain)

    I've updated Project Cars to latest version on Steam (v11.2), all drivers (Zotac GTX 1070 w 376.19 WHQL) and OS (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 14393.479) are up-to-date.

    I noticed that raindrop are missing on chase view during rain (any type, storm, heavy rain and light rain), but visible in external view and cockpit view (the option visual rain on graphics menu is set to ON).

    This is a bug of game, my GFX card/PC issue or in the new version raindrop was removed from chase view?

    Here some screenshots, California Highway (chase view, no raindrop):

    I don't use chase cam, but my guess is that if there would be raindrops, it would be spray and you would not be able to see much ... right ?

    I don't think so... this screenshot is from PS4 version, same circuit, heavy rain, at starting race, raindrops in chase view are visible:

    Just tested (several cars and tracks, including the combo above), there are no raindrops in chase cam.
    But again, I see this as normal, not as a bug.
    Anyway, I never use the chase cam, always cockpit.

    Ok so I definitely exclude issue of my PC/settings/hardware. Probably you're right, this is normal in newest version.

    When I started with pCars, I was still on console, but can't remember the presence or abscense of raindrops in chase view.
    Don't think there is anything wrong with your settings...

    Question Rain effect gone on certain camera views

    I've noticed that the rain drop effect on the chase camera is gone while driving during rainy conditions. Is this something that was removed with a recent patch or a setting to be activated. The windshield/bumper camera still have that effect. I rather liked it and would like to know what happend.
