When does it go out Sor?

Minor tweaks:
- Cleaning up the commas (sorry; I am quite picky with them)
- A few words missing in some of the sentences which breaks the context

Positives:
- Wow. That is one heck of an article.
- SHARKS! Enough said.
- It is simple and to the point yet offers "just enough" to tease the curious

Or the powers that be could perhaps look into the settings ... Is the percentage adjustable?

I'll post it in a couple of days. If no-one does the pics, that will take a little time.

When I was a kid, one of my teachers was very picky on commas too. That taught me well. I'll have a look at them but you are welcome to point out where you think they should go. Duck's style of writing doesn't always allow for the conventional comma rules to be applied.

Yes, there are a few more phrase edits that are required. I noticed them after posting. I also saw two dreaded apostrophe mistakes I left in (and probably caused), shock horror!

Believe me, I never expect things to be write in the first draught.

Any lag affects the game time. Hence, a short downpour will seem longer than it actually is in-game. That may play a part in what you are experiencing.

From memory, there is no choice on the rain:clear ratio. There is a way to keep it clear weather for x seconds, but for that to be active all the time, we would have to set up a system that automatically repeated the command every now and then.

Personally, a bit of rain doesn't hurt anyone. Players have the option of using the BetterSound (see http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/...ml#post3425223) client mod to lessen the sound of the rain.

I have no issue with rain at all, I do have an issue with 3 in game day night cycles of rain. It is easy to tell if someone is using a rainmaker because as soon as I shoot up a charge to clear the rain it immediately begins again.

I have looked into the fact of using charges to clear the rain to see if it stacks on how long it takes to clear further rainfalls and there is no effect. Someone is using a rainmaker or magic excessively to generate rain. There are bees called 'Excitable Bees' that can also cause issues with rain. I am not sure of why you would want to generate excessive rain unless you were hoping to get a Lightening Rod hit. If that was the case then only the rainmaker will cause that effect, bees and magic do not.

Trolling is the only logical answer I can see. It also happened again today where I cleared the rain 3 times and 3 times in a row it started again.

I would expect inexperience rather than trolling, but yeah someone in your vicinity probably has a bee or something that is causing this. Try walking around and having a look. It's very likely they don't even understand they are doing it, like the case with the lightning bee in spawn city.

If it was bee related, would it rain for the whole server, or just locally? or would it just produce the thunder/lightning without rain that we had when we discovered the excitable bees?

I have noticed that recently (over the last week or so) it seems to be raining an enormous amount of time
