Rain and Snow textures

The rain and snow textures have been completely revamped and enhanced with PrecipitFX. There are five intensities of rain and snow. The textures replace the original Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D textures. Therefore, they appear under rain and snow conditions.

Contrails

PrecipitFX contrails are the most advanced contrails for Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D ever seen! They will add up a great touch of realism to any of your jet-powered aircraft!

Wingtip vortices

Our wingtip vortices are the best addition to your flight simulator! What is great with our product is that we added to the wingtip vortices a three dimensional aspect. Plus, they look great! We believe we made the best-looking vortices in the Flight Sim community!

Wheels Effects

The wheels effects under rain and snow conditions will definitely render any ground movements way more interesting! The rain and snow displaced by the wheels will never have looked that good before!

Engine Jet Wash

The engine jet wash effects under rain and snow conditions is a “must-have” for any Flight Simmers! With PrecipitFX and its jet wash textures, you will be able to feel the power behind every airplane, small, medium, or large!

Brake smoke

Brake smoke is a great feature that enhances the realism of any rejected take offs, emergency landings or hard braking landings! The effect work with aircrafts that are not using the anti-lock braking system since the effect is triggered by the friction of the tire with the pavement!

Touchdown

Brand new touchdown effect for all your aircraft. Depending on the size of the aircraft, different touchdown effect will be generated. Giving a unique feel to each landing.

New install process

Our new home-made control panel, VFXCentral, now renders the installation process much easier and enjoyable. It also allows to customize your installation of PrecipitFX along the way. Furthermore, updates will be provided through the control panel and will include all your FSFX Packages under one roof.

First of all,
performance!

Our obsession with details pushed us to design a product easy on system performance. Our upcoming packages will keep the same line of thoughts. You will be able to run this package easily without a significant drop in FPS.

Works for you

PrecipitFX is compatible with all popular texture enhancement add-ons and weather engines available for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D.

We also made changes to the way we generate our effects. They are now compatible out of the box with FSX's DirectX 10 Preview mode without conversion needed.

Ready for capture

Our goal with this product is to extract the beauty of the weather interacting with the aircraft and bring those effects to flight simmers. While doing so, we optimized every effects to make the job easier for virtual photographs and video producers. Visual effects can be displayed in a slow motion environment without spreading apart like they usually do with default effects, making it ideal for today's Flight Sim recording techniques.
