MOD SPOTLIGHT: WEATHER, STORMS, & TORNADOES (1.7.10)
Weather. It exists in Minecraft, albeit in a simplistic form (rain, or no rain), and rains about as frequently as the real-world UK. Even so, it's a pretty basic system, and doesn't accurately model any sort of climate pattern. What if you wanted actual weather patterns? Storms building visibly in the distance, different weather for different regions, and massive natural disasters? All of that is insideWeather, Storms, & Tornadoes, by Corosus! It packs a ton of features in an easy-to-use package:
- Localized weather! See rain and nastier storms coming in from a distance - Replaces vanilla clouds with custom particle-based ones that always shift around - Replaces rain and snowfall with a particle-based one that blows in the wind - Rain clouds build up moisture from water and moist biomes - Stormfront system uses biome temperature differences to create nasty storms - Improved look of storms from old weather mod - Forecast block that projects the active storms on a grid - Machine block that can create various types of storms at that location - Deflector block that can destroy storms within a 150 block radius to protect your creations - Wind Vane to show the direction of the wind (Model made by Razz of DecoCraft) - Anemometer to show the speed of the wind - User friendly GUI to enable/disable the most common features, comes with advanced options - Scenes enhanced with falling leaf particles and waterfall effects - Trees make blowing in wind sound, waterfalls make strong water sounds - Can enhance snowfall with more gradual smooth buildup (default off, memory hungry!)
