Mod Showcase:

These are the levels of intensity:

  • 0 ? 1+ = rain ? thunderstorm
  • 1 ? 2+ = thunderstorm ? high wind (and more rain???)
  • 2 ? 3+ = high wind ? hail
  • 3 ? 4+ = hail ? tornado forming
  • 4 ? 5+ = tornado forming ? F1 tornado

High wind and tornadoes above F1 arent in yet, nor are hurricanes or tropical storms.

Commands:

  • /weather2 volcano create ? will spawn a very very WIP volcano at your location, in hyper demo mode, missing lots of planned particle effects
  • /weather2 storm create F1 ? will spawn tornado at your location, eg syntax for other storms: Syntax: storm create

Weather2/ConfigMisc.cfg helpfull configurations

Storm_CloudSpawnDelay ? PERFORMANCE HELPER: set to somewhere between 5-10 to significantly reduce the amount of cloud particles spawned, should boost framerate if your computer cant handle it.

Storm_IntensityAmplifier ? greatly changes how wild the storms will get, set to over 10 for an ?apocalypse mode? like situation of many many tornadoes

Storm_Tornado_RefinedGrabRules ? set to false to use old block grab rules for tornado (makes them carve into ground like old ways), new ways just strips trees and doesnt harm ground, might also leave wood planks alone i cant remember right now.

Thread_Particle_Process_Delay ? set to higher than to slow down the thread that scans around for blocks to enhance with particles, will however impact on visual sexyness
