The lightning does look epic but I never really noticed it unless I was flying so its not a big deal to me but its still a shame.

But there are NO lightning BOLTS anymore. All patches remove the lightning bolt effects.

Before any of the updates, these lightning bolts were everywhere.

This is why I'm playing my PS3 ver. without patches... when I go play online, I update the game, when I go play story, I delete the patch...

To me, the graphics don't changed. I don't see any improvement... But some things, like the driving, and some details, I prefer without the patches... the lightning bolts, well, I don't noticed from myself, but I made the test and, yes, with patch, I don't see them anymore... some other things, like the prices of some car mod changed with the patches... the prices decreased... but i already had modified all personal chars car with the max... and my money don't have back... so, I don't care about the patches.

The reason the lightning bolts have disappeared was because every time a lightning bolt struck the ground a multiplayer character was deleted.  Now with the patches, fewer characters are disappearing so fewer lightning bolts are appearing.  I believe this is the result of the programmers smoking weed when they were coding GTA Online.

I apologise for the rather large bump, but I have to ask if the lightning strike effects were once again removed from the game and if that is the case, whether or not they have been re-implemented. I ask out of curiosity after the Flight School update actually allowed me to play a mission that contains a scripted thunderstorm sequence, and I have to wonder whether or not this means that they're now likely to show up again, as in the interim period between late 2013 and now, I've noticed a distinct lack of aforementioned storms in both GTA Online and GTA V.

They're still here. During the "City Landing" flight school challenge, I saw a huge lightning bolt in the sky.

Ah yes WildBrick, that was the storm to which I was referring, however that is a scripted instance and not one that you come across in the actual open world. So I still think the answer to the question I posed isn't quite that straightforward.

Just checked both in "Friends Reunited" and free-roam and I still got the lighting bolt effect. Storms can also still happen in free-roam but they're very rare.
