Hey guys! When I first played this I was quite amazed about what modders can do. This mod is a very good example of the sheer skill of them because it is so complex but simple! Well enough of my barbering lets get to the mod! The mod does exactly what the name says – it adds more weather types (including wind) and tornadoes to the game, and it is awesome. Let’s take a look.
Here’s a awesome video showing it in pure detail
The first thing you will notice when you play with this mod for the first time is wind. The mod adds wind with various speeds and types throughout biomes. The weak winds won’t do much. They will have a slight leaf particle effect in most biomes and maybe some snow in snowy biomes. It can’t do much but alter your route a little when falling. When the wind gets stronger, the particle effect gets more noticeable, and it even slightly alters your movement. The weather can turn into a storm (and it always did during my time with the mod) with thunder all around and tornadoes starting to form. During this phase it’s best you stay inside because those tornadoes are nasty.
Tornadoes only occur naturally at the peak of a storm, but you can create them with the tornado gun item. They are extremely destructive. These are not your regular old weak winds, this thing picks up blocks and throws them around, Blocks are blown away and placed to other places, leaving a destroyed landscape behind. If you’re close enough, the tornado can suck you in All movement is altered by the sheer force of this thing. It’s truly amazing. It’s possible to craft a tornado sensor and siren to warn you when a tornado is coming so you can hide. Or take it head on.
And this video explaining it
