I must learn everything there is to know about making weather on my maps... and info on weather is very limited :cmad

All this info is based on info I've found and my own testing.

Typical Weather Example:
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE(3, 5, "1885.52,2141.46", 147.500000, 184.166672)
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE_RAIN(3, 0.857608, 3, 77, 0)
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE_TEMP(3, 7.200000, 8.000000)
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE_WIND(3, 40.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000)
Additional line I found:
CREATE_WEATHER_STORM(3, "2749.73,3206.18", 70.799492, 8, "160.00,176.00,10.00,460.00,1.00,1.10", "0.12,500.00,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.00", "0,0,8,93,-3,39", 0.000000,

Let's take it line by line...

---------------- CLIMATE ----------------
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE(climate#, type, "X,Y", Xwidth, Ywidth)

PARAMETER      PURPOSE
climate#            The climates ID number
type                  The type of climate (see CLIMATE TYPE list below)
X                      The climate's X-Axis center position
Y                      The climate's Y-Axis center position
Xwidth              How far from center the climates north/south radius is
Ywidth              How far from center the climates east/west radius is
---------------- CLIMATE TYPE ----------------
#              DESCRIPTION          TEST RESULTS
0              ?                            Rainstorm
1              ?                            Thunderstorm
2              ?                            Rain + Snow (heavy)
3              ?                            Rainstorm + Thunderstorm Mix
4              ?                            Rainstorm + Snowstorm Mix
5              ?                            Rain + Snow (light)
==================================================
---------------- RAIN ----------------
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE_RAIN(climate#, start, ?, ?, ?)

PARAMETER      PURPOSE
climate#            The climates ID number
start                  ?  (1 = always on)... I think.
?                      ?
?                      ?
?                      Always 0 (only time I saw a 1 is when a storm was part of the script.)
==================================================
---------------- TEMP ----------------
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE_TEMP(climate#, tempA, tempB)

PARAMETER      PURPOSE
climate#            The climates ID number.
tempA              ?  It's in Celsius... I think. Other than that I have no real info.
tempB              ?  It's in Celsius... I think. Other than that I have no real info.
---------------- TEMP SCALE ----------------
TEMP                TEST RESULTS
-20 (-4F)          Lots of snow. Freezing Creature.
15 (50F)            Little snow. Cold Creature.
20 (68F)            Little rain. Warm Creature.
40 (104F)          Lots of rain. Hot Creature.
==================================================
---------------- WIND ----------------
CREATE_WEATHER_CLIMATE_WIND(climate#, ?, ?, ?)

PARAMETER      PURPOSE
climate#          The climates ID number.
?                      ?
?                      ?
?                      ?
==================================================
---------------- STORM ----------------
CREATE_WEATHER_STORM(climate#, "2749.73,3206.18", 70.799492, 8, "160.00,176.00,10.00,460.00,1.00,1.10", "0.12,500.00,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.00", "0,0,8,93,-3,39", 0.000000, "2770.00,2950.00")

PARAMETER        PURPOSE
climate#              The climates ID number
everything else    ?
==================================================
