Localized Weather & Stormfronts Mod – Have you ever thought that Minecraft lacked in the unexpected terror department? Are mobs not enough to keep you up at night trying to defend your precious hovel? Well maybe adding unannounced storms to your game is up your alley.
The Local Weather & Stormfronts mod adds a more realistic weather system than the standard rain and snow. It adds a series of storms ranging from hail and lightning to tornados and hurricanes. The storms will spawn randomly as rain and snow do but they will also spawn better in certain areas. Rain clouds will gather over areas with more water for example.
You can also manually call storms either with commands or the added Machine Block that can bring a variety of storms depending on what you set it to.
The mod adds some preventative measures like a wind vane and an Anemometer to measure the direction and speed of the wind. It gives you a forecast block to analyze what type of storm is near. And it also adds a tornado siren block to alert you of oncoming storms.
It’s actually quite a terrifying mod. Seeing blocks and animals swoop in the air in the midst of a wind storm might get you panicking a little more than if you see creepers nearby. You’ll also want to get below ground if you’re not on creative mode. The wind will catch you and drop you from dangerous heights if you get in it’s path.
