Dynamic Weather and Time System
Version: 1.0
Author: ThallionDarkshine (no credit needed)
Date: May 25, 2012

Version History


  • <Version 1.0> 2012.5.35 - Original Release

Planned Future Versions

  • <Version 1.1> Support for MAWS (Modified Advanced Weather System)

Description


When the game starts, the weather system picks a random time of day. The screen tone changes as time passes, with each minute taking a certain amount of seconds specified in configuration. After a random amount of time, the weather changes, either to normal, rain, storm, snow, fog, or clouds. The storm includes random lightning as well.

Features

  • Can disable random weather
  • Weather changes dynamically
  • Put (in) in map name to disable weather
  • Change screen tint with time of day

Screenshots



Instructions

To use, place directly under main.
To turn on or off random weather (replace true with false to turn off):
Code: text [Select]
$weather.rand_weather = true
$weather.update

To change the varience of weather:
Code: text [Select]
$weather.varience =

To change the base time between weather changes:
Code: text [Select]
$weather.base =

To change the second equivalent of one minute realtime:
Code: text [Select]
$weather.min_equiv =
