    Hmmm that is strange: Everytime I execute “/wc weather off” (other commands didn't tested yet) it prints “null” in green on the ingame chat.

    Is there a way to just always have storms going on your world with this plugin? I tried to jack up the duration of the weather and it sets to like 250 hours, but then after a short time it just stops raining and thundering.

    You either have to configure permissions for your ingame player or op it. Did you do this? For me it seems like you don't have Permissions installed, It's not needed but i'll recommend to do that :)

    Do you have Essentials or Permissions installed? OP only work if you don't have Permissions.

    And try /wc instead.
  11. Offline


    I don't have permissions or essentiels and i am op...... have tried wc.....
    Do i have to do something whith the file in plugins/WeatherControl/config.yml ??

    This is what it's like:

    #WeatherControl Configuration

    #Fill this in with lines for the default config file. Make sure to add the newline...
    - 42 3
    - 66 1
    - 27 2
    - 41 2

    #This is the id for the lightnignpick wand. It defaults to 278 (diamond pick). It will fall to default if blank.

    #Set this to the id you want to use.
    WandID: 278

    in the weathercontrol foulder I only have one file... config.yml should there be a world file?

    I don't know if ItemCraft is supported. But for me it seems like you're running the other WeatherControl plugin that's not mine. But that who took the name from me. Try download this again.

    I deleted the weather plugin i had and installed yours.... but there is no change???
    Do I have to do something with the config.yml ?
  18. Offline


    There is no WeatherControl version 1.2 supported by halvors ;) So if nothing change you still have the wrong plugin. Check if there is something like this:
    00:08:22 [INFO] [WeatherControl] Loaded configuration for world 'world'
    00:08:22 [INFO] [WeatherControl] Loaded configuration for world 'portal'
    00:08:22 [INFO] [WeatherControl] Loaded configuration for world 'nether'
    00:08:22 [INFO] [WeatherControl] version 0.8.4 is enabled!
    Actually I see I could update to version 0.9.

    [update]Okay version 0.9 doesn't seem to working in my (928) Server:

    Post the startup log please.

    @halvors Any change which is important? Afaik, from 860 to 928 there were no breakages according to weather? And I'm using 928 at the moment with 0.8.4.

    im looking to change server programs and i found bukkit, then found alot of cool mods for it and was wondering if anyone knew if there was compatibility or not?

    Should work with 935, just some minor changes with a item duping bug.

    Lovely plugin.

    I quite like when it rains in MC so this is nice.

    Maybe make a way to set it so that the thunder/ rain never stops until an admin does or the server is restarted.
    Of course, you could just put a crazy high amount of time in the duration if that'd work well.

    Possibly :)
