    WeatherRestrictions - Control the Frequency of Weather:
    Version: v2.2

    This is a fork of the NoWeather Plugin with some changes so that you can change the frequency and the minimum delay between storms. I designed it because it rains/snows too frequently on my server, yet I don't really want to put the weather on a schedule. This has several commands to start and stop storms (respects config file) as well as optional permissions support. If there is no permissions plugin the commands are OP only.
    To configure it see the config options spoiler below.
    Note: This plugin has been completed and is now in maintenance mode. No new features will be added (except for new permissions support) unless frequently requested.

    • Can totally stop weather
    • Toggles different aspects of the weather.
    • An option to stop snow from accumulating
    • An option to make all storms thunder storms!
    • Set the minimum delay before it can snow/rain again.
    • Set the maximum time it can rain/snow.
    • Set the max amount of time between the rainy times.
    • Control the storms with admin commands
    • Permissions (Including Bukkit Permissions) support
    • Configurable chance (disabled by default) Supercharged lightning strikes that will blow a hole in the ground.
    • Configurable explosion radius
    • Integrates with ThunderTower(optional, need to download ThunderTower if you want it to work) to prevent you from blowing your ThunderTowers up with supercharged strikes.

  5. SNOW_FORM is indeed deprecated, has been for months, needs updating :)
  6. Are you planning to update this? Otherwise I could see if someone else could fix it, just would like to know, ty :)

    Yes, I actually have a test build I am testing right now. Should be out sometime within 12 hours.

    @Sorken @Joy Updated. I still need to add in the built in Bukkit permissions, but all depreciated hooks have now been updated.

    Hi Tux2,

    here is a description of my issues with CB 1038:

    Description of issue: Commands are like the echo command from unix if i write /clearrain, /lightning, or anything else the output will result in that command.


    Version of Craftbukkit: 1038

    Version of java: java-common 0.40, openjdk-6-jre-lib 6b18-1.8.7-2~squeeze1, openjdk-6-jre-headless 6b18-1.8.7-2~squeeze1

    OS: Debian Linux 6.0

    Other plugins installed: WorldEdit, WorldSafe, AntiCreeper, AutoSave, FalseBook, HomeX, Guestprev, Lightvote, SimpleGive, Sortal, SpawnX

    Output of console (If there are any error messages): -

    WeatherRestrictions configuration file:

    disable-snow-accumulation: true
    disable-lightning: true
    disable-thunder: true
    disable-weather: true
    supercharged-thunder-chance: 0.0
    max-rain-wait: 1000
    supercharged-explosion-radius: 3.0

    makeall-thunderstorms: false

    disable-ice-accumulation: true
    max-rain-duration: -1

    I'm really looking forward if you fix that.

    Hmm.... I just tested it on my computer and I am unable to reproduce the issue you are having using your exact setup (except I am using Fedora instead of Debian). Also, please try re-downloading the file as your browser might have cached an older version.

    Hey, im just curious, is there a way to have non-stop rain? A buddy of mine in my server likes the rain and has requested it be non-stop. Any ideas?
  12. Offline


    max-rain-wait: 0
    minimum-rain-wait: 0
    max-rain-duration: -1
    Those values should keep it raining constantly.

    "WeatherRestrictions" doesn't work with "CraftBukkit 1060".
    But I think better wait as an plug-in with bugs...
  14. Offline


    Not sure why it wouldn't work with 1060. Seems to work fine, I use it to limit how often it rains, and on one world at least, make sure it never does. Does what I want it to do. If you tried with 1060 and are having issues, go ahead let us know what you wanted to happen, how you had it configured, and any error issues you get? Doesn't work on **** isn't very precise or detailed.

    I also request you add an option to keep snow/ice from melting due to biome temperature. Maybe also include an option to keep snow/ice from being melted by light sources, though I know this is a little bit different from the purpose of this plugin. Nevertheless it would still be a cool addition to this plugin.

    Edit: I tested it out and snow/ice isn't melting due to biome temp in my server. I assumed the other user knew what he was talking about, but now I'm not sure if snow/ice melts due to biome temp. If it does though it would still be useful to disable it.

    @acekid2 Correct, ice will not MELT in a biome unless a heat source: fire, lava, or a torch is placed next to it. Although it will FORM in the correct biomes if not disabled by my plugin.
  17. How about an option to force melting off completely? Ive been considering making ice droppable from breaking ice blocks but i cant have it melting all over the place when people puts down torches :)
  18. TT dev says this is WR issue:

    @Joy he must have changed something in ThunderTower. I will download the latest and re-link.
  20. Any news?

    Just FYI incase anyone wants to know tested and works for me in 1160 XD

    With 1.8 coming out I'm kind of holding off on releasing an official fixed version, although I do have a testing version I will send you (should work just fine)
  23. Offline


    I'm glad to know this is still being maintained, my version (old as dirt) can't register snow_form, and its really blanketing everything in a mess. I was hoping a reinstall of WR when we update to 1.8 and 1185 would fix it, thank you for keeping it somewhat current!
  24. Offline


    No problem! I use all my plugins on my server so if something breaks in bukkit I kind of have to fix it. One of the new things I'm working on is bukkit permissions, since it supports multi-world permissions now. Right now I'm collaborating with the author of ThunderTower to make sure that they are going to be 100% compatible for the foreseeable future so I'm working with a beta copy that he hasn't released yet. Once he releases the new version expect this plugin to update!

    Fix the link to 1.9 please, I'm still on bukkit 1060 and I get access denied when I try to download it.

    Whoops, sorry about that, just updated the link. Just to let you know, this plugin is on BukkitDev as well and all previous files can be found in the "File" section of there as well.

    Link is still broken. Downloading from BukkitDev works though.

    Are you saying that when you tell it to rain in the nether it starts raining in your world as well? If so would you mind telling me the output of: /wr stats Also, I am unable to duplicate this on my server. Also, please make sure to read the opening post and post all the other information it requests....
