Weather2 FAQ

How it works

Simulates a weather system around each player, spawning warm and cold cloud formations depending on the biome. As the cloud formations travel due to the wind added by the mod, when they collide they have a chance of developing into thunderstorms, which can progress into deadlier storms such as wall clouds, hailstorms, tornadoes, or hurricanes.

The cloud formations also build up moisture as they travel over humid or wet biomes, and will rain locally in an area after it builds up enough moisture.

Since the weather is localized, the mod does its best to be compatible with vanilla global weather features, but if you need better cross mod compatibility, you can make weather2 not override global rain by turning on global overcast in the ingame weather2 gui "storms when", or set overcastMode to true in Misc.cfg. With this mode on, weather2 will do light rain everywhere when vanilla server rain is active, and rain more heavily as storms pass by above, otherwise weather2 forces server side weather off and performs its own logic on it.

There are also other aesthetic features and wind systems in the mod, shown on the showcase page.
