    The plugin works with 953 ( mc 1.7.2 ) but when I go to enable weather I get An internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command and no errors in the console log at all. Is anyone else seeing this in 953 and I am also getting the green null message when starting the weather.

    EDIT: Sorry CB 953
    Weather .9
    Oops I was wrong there an error message but I had another plugin that was spamming the hell out of my console I missed it here it is

    EDIT3 : I think I have figured it out General 3.4.5 has Weather built into it so I think that is where the confusion is coming in at. Just a hint I hope of where to look

    Hmmm it seems that it doesn't work on 1038:
    15:22:47 [SCHWERWIEGEND] Error occurred while enabling WeatherControl v0.9 (Is it up to date?): SNOW_FORM
    java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: SNOW_FORM

    And I had a thunderstorm on a world where I disabled it :(

    Seems like SNOW_FORM is outdated.

    This may be a dumb question, but is there a command to get rid of the wand? Throwing it into the fire generated by the lightning doesn't work.

    Could you please update it? I know it isn't a recommended build, but at some time there will be a recommended build, where it don't work.
  16. Offline


    I would have udpated this myself a while ago but I'm waiting for @halvors to push two files he neglected *nagnagnagnag* ( :p ) that are needed to build.

    EDIT: fix emoticon

    I have been waiting for ever on the next version. The plugin is still semi functional Though, it gets the job done :D, I will not choose any other weather plugin over it (Unless it all out fails).

    Echoing this resentment, seriously. I don't want to fork, I want to cooperate, but until he pushes two files, I can't give him the fix. =p

    1060 Bukkit build, SNOW_FORM breaks. Badly. I am moving on to a different weather plugin that works now, sorry but it has to many issues now. I'll keep this bookmarked for the future
  20. Offline


    In lack of cooperation and updates for two RB's I think I will fork the plugin from an earlier version until @halvors returns.

    EDIT: change version to RB to clarify what I mean.

    Actually only the 1060 is the first RB which isn't supported. RB 1000 is working.

    But please update :( I don't want that a lightning strike to burn down our parliament.

    i have an issue
    every time i try to use the plugin i get a null response
    so whats the deal?
    i cant make it rain when i need it and i havent been able to stop the rain
    could this be the result of not putting the permissions in?
    and how do i put the permissions in?
    should i try to open the file with notepad++ ? and then save it as the .yml again?
    thanks for any help

    Can you add region specific weather control? Such as only lightning in a specific worldguarded area?
  27. Offline


    is there any support for this mod at all?

    is there a support for the new version? Or can somebody recommend any other Plugin for this?

    This is outdated with TWO updates now.
    This is a great plugin, so I think that many servers need it.
    So update it, or at least tell us you are working on it. Otherwise, give a clear message that the development is shut down or paused, and that owners should start searching for another weathercontrolplugin.

    I get the same issue, but I am sure this is because the plugin is outdated, (since it began exactly when I updated) and not a result of anything permissions-related.
