    Also finding that I can't get 'disablePigZap' to work.

    Would it just affect the command or would it affect the wand strikes as well?

    Error when we try to strike an offline player...

    In game :

    Gimlao have been struck by lightning!
    An internal error occured while attempting to perform this command

    In the CraftBukkit console :

    I was more excepting a message (with no errors) like : "Can't find <player> !".

    WeatherControl 0.4.8 released.

    This is fixed in 0.4.8.

    The disablePigZap command should prevent pigs for being zaped into pigmans. I know this not work at the moment, it's nothing i can do about it because it's a CraftBukkit bug.

    Any chance we could get a simple "/weather rain" alias that runs an equivalent of "/weather weather on 10" or some such?

    On my server we get a lot of phantom rain that isn't recognized by the plugin for /weather clear, but typing "/weather weather on 10" is a real pain when you're toggling the rain ON in order to get all the clients up to speed before turning the rain OFF.
    Also, the phantom rain comes back at least once usually, but sometimes reconnecting makes it vanish. You must understand how frustrating it is to do "/weather clear" only to have it say "It's already clear" ._.

    So...there is this thundertower plugin and it catches natural lightnings on a defined area of the tower. The problem is, if the lightning is generated by the thunder tool of this plugin, it just ignores the tower.

    Any way you guys could make any kind of partnership, where you could make a way for the lighnings of this plugin to not ignore the tower, provide the author of thundertower a way to catch the manually generated lightnings or integrate it inside this plugin?

    Anything that could help a bit would really be apreciated.

    Isn't the point of the wand to strike a specified position? You want it to strike in tower instead?
  20. Offline


    Yes, if the thunder fall inside the tower defined radius, it would "pick" it, if it was natural, or plugin made.
    Currently the tool made ligning ignores the tower. The reason I ask this is that on my server, thunder making tools are not exclusive for moderators, as we have a rare group of thundermages. So those towers would make thunder mages proof regions.

    Also, my moderators...erm...sometimes like to play around with thunders...A LOT. And accidents happens :p

    I think the owner of ThunderTower need to code this, every weather plugin use a function in Bukkit, so we're not talking about compatiblity with WeatherControl but compatiblity with Bukkit.

    Someone want the commands to be on the /command? Also /weather instead of /wc weahter and /thunder instead of /wc thunder?

    how about to add config parameter for how often rains+thunder shows? i would like the plugin takes a random value from a range like every 300-800 seconds. rainminbreatime=300 rainmaxbreaktime=800, thunderminbreaktime=600 thundermaxbreaktime=1000

    Isn't this random on Minecraft by default?

    that would be great.

    the simpler the better

    Is it possible with this plugin to set more thunder storm ?
  26. Offline


    What do you mean with more thunder strom?
  27. Offline


    Yeah, it's random, but badly to often for my serversetting/players. My last wheater plugin "MotherNature 1.2" could that, so it shouldn't be difficult. I would appreciate. MotherNature is inactive, so if you want, you can overtake it and take the source of it, if you write plugindev.

    So you want an interval feature? That's it?
  29. Offline


    i think keeping it as /wc <command> is good, just to prevent conflicts with any other plugin but thats just my view =]
  30. Offline


    Indeed, but if most of you want, i'll use not /wc.
