    Works for me, sure you have updated the configuration file for the latest version?

    If you use the newest version (check via “/version WeatherControl”) give halvors your error message in the console.

    Maybe he means that with the glowstone dust he could only execute 2-3 strikes before he crash the server. But on my everything works fine. Is there a console output @xxxfakaxxx.

    i don't seem to be getting any fires from lightning strikes..

    updated to 0.4.3
    deleted WeatherControl folder in plugins, which then got re-created

    things burn, but go out quickly and don't get damaged.

    mobs, and players get hurt though

    cb 733

    am i missing something?

    disableLightningStrikeFire: false # Prevent lightning strike to cause fire.

    this is set to false

    hello, now my example is possible?

    not enough i think :(

    tried several weather plugins. none of these is able to handle commands from console. same here. grueling.
  12. Offline


    yep i also had it already checked :( :( :(grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
  13. Offline


    yes, its my main use case. cant use plugins without it.
  14. Offline


    Ahr that's why I get the interesting message in the console: So please add Console support!

  15. Offline


    If i add console support, you just want me to add these commands:

    weather <on|off> <duration>
    thunder <on|off> <duration>
    strike <player> Notice: Whould only be used to strike players.
    lightning [x] [y] [z]

    Think only these commands are possible to do in console. Commands like wand etc is for giving player an item...

    Some of these commands is world specific, how should user define world? Using world paramenter in command, or should default world be set?

    WeatherControl 0.4.4 released.

    I think there might be a bug in 0.4.4. I just updated to CB740 and WeatherControl 0.4.4(and deleted my config files and had the plugin regenerate them). Now when I use the lightning wand I get thunder and fire where I click, but the lightning bolt itself isn't visible. Anybody else experiencing this?
  22. Offline


    Tested it i get lightning strike and fire.

    Seems like Craftbukkit is prevent fire from lightning strikes by default, so this may only be a security for your server if you not are sure.

    when admin enter /weather strike playername this returns in console: /weather <storm/sun> [duration]
    also this same message syntax is displayed in the console when you type any incorrect command. did you forget to replace that with the help list? lol
    I do prefer this plugin over the rest, and will promote it to other servers if these small bugs get worked out..... ;)

    Sure you stoped/started server, not just restart? You get weather then use wand?

    Thanks, but there still is some bugs :(

    "strike" command is to buggy, this most because i have to handle mobs too, it is ok if i move mobs to a new command called "strikemob"? And leave "strike" for players?
  29. Offline


    I restarted the server and now I see the lightning strike. Sorry for the confusion.
  30. Offline


    Maybe it's not a confusion...have this issue now, think it's maybe a bug in Craftbukkit :mad:

    UPDATE: Sorry, think this was an indev issue :)

    I can't start fire with lightningstrikes :( But I can use them to kill mobs... Can it be worldguard? I've aldredy check the config file and it says that it should start fires. I did try on tree.
