It's falling from the sky!

All good film noir, cop shows, and action movies have at least one scene in the rain. As if the story wasn't dark and depressing enough, the whole atmosphere changes when you know that everyone is cold and soggy. Like this.

Or this.

And no, this is not a post effect. This is 100% pure Moviestorm. It does more than one type of precipitation too. Try these.

It's still fairly early days for this code, like yesterday's fireworks, so don't expect anything to be released too soon. But it's definitely on its way. OK, who's going to be the first to use the upcoming buildings and street dressing packs to do Singin' In the Rain? Look, we even have the little plant you need for this sequence...

Yes, but you know what this means...umbrellas, window wipers and an animation of someone being startled from very loud thunder. :-D

Oh, and maybe an animation where a character drops to their knees, spreads their arms, looks at the heavens and screams, "NOOOOOOO!" Because that has to happen in all rain scenes.

the relevant scene that someone simply MUST do is this one:

""I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. ... All those moments will be lost ... in time, .... like tears .... in rain. .... Time ... to die.""

Now, where are the doves?
