Weather

This system is largely not in use and often gives irrelevant or incorrect information (snow in Ista during the summer, rain in High Reaches during the winter, etc). It is included here for completion's sake.

There is now a Global Weather System setup for the Mush that has weather generated to play off the other areas near it. It is based off the Keran Weather Code with minor adjustments to deal with 13 months and multiple timezones.

The commands are simple:

  • +Today -*- This will tell you the current Time and Weather in the Timezone you are in.
  • +Forcast -*- This will tell you the current Time and Weather in all Timezones.

Weather Setup

There is now a Global Weather System setup for the Mush that has weather generated to play off the other areas near it. It is based off the Keran Weather Code with minor adjustments to deal with 13 months and multiple timezones.

Timezones of Note are:

3 - HighReaches Weyr & Southern Boll
5 - Ista Weyr & Island River Hold
7 - Igen Weyr
13- Eastern Weyr, Landing, & Dolphin Hall
22 - Western Weyr

Please &Timezone here=<Zone> appropriate for the area you are in, and the commands will tell you the appropriate time, tide, weather, and phases of the moons.


Area Weather Parent

There are several things that you need to do to set up a Specific Area Parent. First off you must make a Message bank for your area's particular weather…. there is also a message bank for tree weather if you wish to use it. How do you set this up. Well first of all it doesn't hurt to have an experianced coder do this for you, else this is all going to be gibberish for you… Follow these instructions and you should be good to go.

1) @decompile #10015
This is your Weather Long Descriptions Bank. You'll need to log this and then edit it to match your area's climate and general temperatures…. if you rarely see snow in your area, then for blizzards you might have hard rains or the like, simply enter the applicable equal in and go on.

2) @decompile #10008
This is your Tree Descriptions for the different weather if you wish to use them. As before, edit them as they should be for your area's climate.

3) @Create <Area> Weather Parent
This will be your area's parent that everyone can parent their rooms to so that they will match in messages.

4) @parent <Area> Weather Parent=#9950

From there, it is just easier to contact me and I'll set it up for you. It really is a mess, trust me.

When you get that done, just +mail Tiffany and I'll come through and link them all together and get them working so you can @parent everything to them.

Or you can just use the weather parent as is, with all the presets.
