    WeatherControl 0.9.1 - Control over your world's weather (for CraftBukkit #1060)

    Note: This plugin is (hopefully) temporary until @halvors returns! This simply fixes the plugin to work with RB#1060 and adds a minor feature (ability to disable ice and snow separately) as a nice side effect. I really hate to fork the plugin, but this is needed on many servers now, and until halvors returns to active dev, this is necessary. I do not claim to have written this; this is completely and 100% halvors's work. The original plugin thread can be found here.

    From original plugin description:
    There may be some minor bugs to work out, I'll do my best for now. You can help with my efforts to maintain this. I really am strapped for time and am doing the best I can.

    Installation is unchanged from old plugin:
    Show Spoiler

    Start command with either /weatherc, /wc or /weather (If you want i can add more aliases, just post request on thread).

    help - Show help.
    status - Show weather status.
    weather <on|off> <duration> - Show or toogle weather.
    thunder <on|off> <duration> - Show or toogle thunder.
    clear - Toogle clear.
    strike <player> - Lightning strike you or/and other players.
    strikemob [creeper|pig] <distance> - Lightning strike mob.
    strikepos [x] [y] [z] - Lightning strike a specific position.
    wand <count> - Get wand item or set count.

    Show Spoiler

    WeatherControl.* - Give you access to anything.
    WeatherControl.help - Show help.
    WeatherControl.status - Show weather status.
    WeatherControl.weather - Show or toogle weather.
    WeatherControl.thunder - Show or toogle thunder.
    WeatherControl.clear - Toogle clear.
    WeatherControl.strike - Lightning strike you or/and other players.
    WeatherControl.strikemob - Lightning strike mob.
    WeatherControl.strikepos - Lightning strike a specific position.
    WeatherControl.wand - Access to use wand.

    Truthfully, I have a lot on my plate right now. I'm really doing the best I can to maintain this but it's really on a best-effort basis. If halvors doesn't step back in, I will likely have no choice but to maintain the plugin. In that event, I will likely begin rewriting parts of the plugin to clean it up and make it compatible with superperms, as well as add any features people ask for (on a best-effort basis).

    0.9.1 - Initial new release, based on last working trunk of WeatherControl on github. Added disableIceForm (similar to disableSnowForm, but for ice only).

    Get the build at http://elizabethmyers.me.uk/downloads/WeatherControl/0.9.1/WeatherControl.jar.

    You can find the plugin source at http://github.com/Elizacat/WeatherControl. Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks for this! This fixes the error I get when I start my server with the old WC plugin.

    Your version does not generate a config file, so I had to run the v.9 to gen the config, then go back to using your .9.1, though it doesn't update your new option to disable ice...not that it was hard to figure it out and add it manually

    disableIceForm: true # Prevent Ice to be placed by the environment

    Hey, I loved the unforked but with the error in 1060 it wasn't working anymore. Thanks for fixing this.

    But it seems that the world configuration files don't work anymore. I had several set up (prevent weather on a testing world and prevent fire from lightning strikes) which don't work (okay I couldn't test the lightning strike part). So I had weather in exp world.

    As the unforked plugin was very sensitive with updating the plugin without the files, I moved all configuration files and restarted the server. The plugin recreated some files, but not the world specific, so I don't know what the format of the files now is. (But it created at least the worlds directory).

    I like to use the wand, but how can i make it so that it causes fires and hurts players?

    Might it be possible to release a small update, with config options to disable the messages for whenever weather and thunder starts/stops? Kinda spamming my server console, y'know. =P

    Why it says null or null ?

    Because you're missing the messages in config.yml.

    So, for those of us unaware how to ensure we have the right messages in the config.yml, how do we do that?
