  1. Hi,
    I kinda miss the rain. So would it be possible to enable weather in town.
    If possible make it able to control it with flags. So if you do not want it to rain or snow
    you can disable it for you res.

    What do you think?

    Thanks for the most epic minecraft server and a great community!
  2. I also like the weather. We disabled it because it snowed on peoples lots who didn't want it, and if we turned it on now it would snow randomly on certain lots. Also the rain causes a lot of lag for a lot of players. I am not against enabling or disabling it just saying why we did :)

    I wish we could enable weather for just res's with some sort of flag. Perhaps in the future MC will give me this ability, but at this time it is not possible :( (just like I cant edit biomes)

  3. I really hope a future version of MC will let you do this. Some things just look and feel so much better in rain, just like some of them do at night. It gives minecraft another sort of "mood".
    If MC did let you use flags in order to enable or disable weather, do you think you could implement it, or would the lag still be a problem?

  4. Maybe there is some server plugin that allows it. I think some other servers have flags to control the weather.
    Introducing lag of course would be bad. I understand why you disabled it esp. with the snow issue.
    I hope there will be a better way. Some players might want to have to snow if they want to build some ski-area or something so it would really open up some options to have that control.
