I've got nothing substantial to contribute to this thread, but I did have to chime in to say I absolutely love the title.  "Is there rain without particles?"   I feel like it should be the title of a great work by a philospher poet, or a theoretical physicist, or both.

Animated rain on layered prims is much more realistic than particles when you want rain around buildings and not in them. I've also used this effect inside buildings where I wanted it to rain inside and not out. I was building a rainforest inside an old church.

AM Radio's prim based falling snow at "The Quiet" was lovely, and did not fall inside the cabin. By being a bit creative with the particle texture and emission pattern, you can keep rain out of buildings, I've constructed an emitter that drops a "sheet" of rain in front of my house.

For those who are interested, you can see it here...

If it's not raining or snowing in front of the lighthouse, just walk inside and touch the sunset photo hanging on the wall over the workbench. That will cycle through Off/Rain/Snow.

Is the rain in Spain mainly in the euclidian plane?

animated textures would be less stressful on the sim than particles? I want to have rain on half a sim.

 

I use damani atm . I dont have a problem with rain inside because i can set fall length/time.( rain particle dies just before it hits the roof)

I just want a better looking rain and less lag/scripts etc.

A thought just occurred to me... 

You know how we have the nav mesh which is used to define path finding surfaces and such? Could a variant of that be used to construct an absolute collision surface which dictates where to end particle type rain?


Edit: Obviously, nothing currently exists to do this - I'm just thinking out loud about a possibe feature suggestion.
