Is there any way to have it automatically activated in all missions? Like just put it in the addons folder and then it works :)

Nevermind i figured it out. I was trying to place it as the first thing on the map, but i forgot you need to designate a player entity first.

Extremely cool! How did you get that awesome pink/orange haze in that screenshot? Are those arma2 screenshots? I tested out a number of the weather types at various times of day but it doesn't look like the screenshots. I also get some error about there not being a lightning texture or something every time lightning strikes.

For those who tried it already ... is tough on the FPS or barelly noticeable?

It shouldn't have that big of an effect on your FPS, I never have had a problem with it. Also, the screenshot of the pink haze, is from ArmA1, however it is a mix of Fog / Mist / Rain / Sandstorm. Just mix them up and see what you can find. Glad to see you guys are enjoying it.

Ah finally NiM Weather is back, good job in that Point. Thx

:rolleyes:

But its full of silly rpt errors you should clean up the stuff in a next update.

ex.

File nim_weather\config.cpp, line 558: '/CfgVehicles/ThunderLight.scope': Missing ';' at the end of line "this error is a joke and could be removed before rel. So much to the todays quality standarts."

Ehh... Kind of hard to say, I use Kju's proper tweaks and get high FPS in the mid 40's + this mod installed.

Sounds like a great addon! I shall try later this eve. Is it MP friendly or would you have same synch issues like with the standard rain in MP?

man i just found the coolest combination! if you have moderate mist and fog, as well as a dark grey cloud-layer and a medium snow, coupled with a heavy sand storm, and set the time of day to dawn, you get what looks and sounds like the aftermath of a nuclear strike!

This Addon is really awesome!-.-

I saw snow covering the ground also in a video in arma2, is that possible somehow?

Well Done Binkowski!!! Working great so far ( the ; error was in the original too!)...

@Himmelsfeur

Snow on the ground is a little trickier... that would require a snow ground texture, either in an addon like Landtex, or permanently placed, in a snowy version of an actual "island"...

Worse still... snow on trees, roofs, etc requires all those objects to be retextured... a Massive Task!

... don't think there aren't people working on it though! :D

Have a look in this thread for stuff people are working on... looks like there may be basic replacement snow units and maybe even a snow island soonish...

PS... the "Snowy Drago" island for Arma1 has snow on the ground... it's probably the one you've been seeing in videos... it's "unbinarised" so it takes a couple of minutes to load, but runs fine under CAA1...

How do I use this mod I went to class but dont see units or game logic.

Make sure that you have a unit down and you are the player. Then go to...

Units (F1) -> Side -> Game Logic -> Class -> NIM Dynamic Weather etc.

To clarify, ensure that the game logic is at least the second thing you place, after you place yourself. The logic options will be hidden otherwise.
