    Your download link seems to be broken. I get a Access Denied/403.

    this one is more wget friendly:

    [edit]Okay I'm really bad :D The “wc thunder” and “wc weather” don't regulate the weather (if it is activated or not) it is simply like “time day”. But the message “It will storm in 1 minute” is little confusing. Doesn't it means “It will storm for 1 minute”? And then it was 100 seconds, that are more than 1,5 minutes?![/edit]

    I don't understand, it is not working?
  6. Offline


    No, it is working, but there will be no storm “in” 1 minute. I think that it should mean there will storm “for” 1 minute. For example if you say “/wc thunder on 3600” it says it will storm “in” one hour, but actually it starting to rain immediately and will stop in one hour. So I would say it is storming for one hour.

    And maybe more accurate time calculation. I mean if I define 100 seconds, and it says there will be storm “in” 1 minute it is not really accurate, as it is more than one and a half minute.


    PS: Maybe I'm so bad in English, and the message is correct.

    Got it, thanks. As you see, my English si not so good as well :D

    Are there any plans to support the console? So I could stop raining on one world without logging in?

  9. Offline


    hmm. It's not a good idea. You need to have a lot of parameters for use a command in console then. Define world etc.

    wc storm off world
    wc storm on 600 other-world

    You also could add this functionality ingame, so the admin hasn't to warp into other worlds to change the weather there.

    Yes... Will look into it. If it's not too implecated i will add it in next release :)

    He has to reupload the jar file. In the meanwhile watch this post.

    @halvors: Maybe you should file a support ticket on github. I had the problem on my repositories, but it seems that, yours is more affected. Any maybe your repository was private (at some time) which could be a problem (but not mine).

    Github's still borked, you might want to host at an alternate site for a bit :p

    Hmm. Then it's something with bukkit. I know other plugins get the same error.

    Sure you have 803?

    When i test it with CraftBukkit 803 i get no errors. Just for being sure, error shows when server start?

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Yeah, error shows on the loading of the plugin at server start.

    Oddly enough, the functionality of the plugin still works, although right click only calls down a single lightning bolt as opposed to many.

    You can set wand count with /wc wand <count>

    Is this option still in the config file? I can't find it.
