Coros Weather and Tornadoes Mod

thumb-corosweather

Did you ever feel that the weather system in vanilla Minecraft is lacking and could be improved? Do you think there shouldn’t just be rain, sun and snow, but shades of grey in between? Modder Corosus seems to think so, and he tries to improve it with his Weather & Tornadoes mod. The mod does exactly what the name says – it adds more weather types (including wind) and tornadoes to the game, and it is awesome. Let’s take a look.

The first thing you will notice when you play with this mod for the first time is wind. The mod adds wind with various  speeds and types throughout biomes. The weak winds won’t do much. They will have a slight leaf particle effect in most biomes and maybe some snow in snowy biomes. It can’t do much but alter your route a little when falling. When the wind gets stronger, the particle effect gets more noticeable, and it even slightly alters your movement – if you move upwind, you move slower, and if you move downwind you’re a bit faster. As the wind grows strong the sky is a bit more dark and rain could start falling in some biomes, with snowstorms in cold biomes. At this state, the weather can turn into a storm (and it always did during my time with the mod) with thunder all around and tornadoes starting to form. During this phase it’s best you stay inside because those tornadoes are nasty.

A small snowy breeze.

Tornadoes only occur naturally at the peak of a storm, but you can create them with the tornado gun item. They are extremely destructive. These are not your regular old weak winds, this thing picks up blocks and throws them around. The sky gets dark and the tornado particle effect takes up most of the biome it’s in. Blocks are blown away and placed to other places, leaving a destroyed landscape behind. If you’re close enough, the tornado can suck you in. All movement is altered by the sheer force of this thing. It’s truly amazing. It’s possible to craft a tornado sensor and siren to warn you when a tornado is coming so you can hide. Or take it head on.

Take a look at that beast! It scares me.

While the weather is cool, and the tornadoes totally wicked, this isn’t a mod I would recommend you use all the time unless you want a challenge. The tornadoes are highly destructive, making it hard to achieve that “perfect house in a perfect landscape” feel we all know and love, and the winds effect on movement is almost always present and can be annoying at times. But if you can deal with that, you’ll have a blast with this mod installed.

  2. Herobrine says:

    Cool mod you could make sand storms and that

  3. greev says:

    You mean tsunamis? Wtf is a shunomy?

  4. Ala-Gold says:

    Sounds (and looks) pretty cool, but the wind effects would probably get annoying after a while (strong wind doesn’t sound too uncommon). It would probably be even more fun if the wind and tornadoes were less common, making them more of a novelty than a regular occurence. But I still want to get this mod. By the way, where can I download it? (Just kidding) :)

    • LittleDinamit says:

      The mod can get pretty annoying after a while, but you can change the frequency of wind and tornadoes in the config file, so you could tweak it to your liking.
      Also, I did not expect someone to notice my constant struggle to make the link visible to everyone so people don’t have to ask in the comments, nice one. ;)

      • Ala-Gold says:

        Yeah, I’ve read lots of your articles, as well as the comments beneath them, and thought it was hilarious how almost everybody asked where to download it, when the link was big and obvious right there at the bottom, and even after you would finish explaining it, they would ask the same exact thing right after your reply. I thought it was pretty impressive how you handled those situations though, you replied kindly and calmly. I probably would have flipped out and asked if they were blind or if they even read the article.

        • LittleDinamit says:

          I try to make the links as obvious as possible, but people still miss them. Most people just see the pictures and look for a big DOWNLOAD button, and when they can’t find it they go straight to the comments. It’s just the way things are and I try to keep my cool and answer everyone nicely. :)

  5. ^&$@%^$@% says:

    do the tornadoes spawn automaticly?

  6. minecraftkitteh says:

    the tornado is epic but how are you suppost to know when a tornado is forming is there like some type of signs are something

  7. minecraftkitteh says:

    it would be cool if you made sandstorms

  8. Minecraft kitten says:

    Do tornadoes form all the time

  9. a person says:

    are there any blocks the tornado doesnt pick up

    • LittleDinamit says:

      Not that I know of. It annihilated my wooden house. Try cobblestone or stone bricks. That might work.

  10. mr epic says:

  11. owen says:

    how do you downlod this mod

    • LittleDinamit says:

      You click the big download link at the bottom of the article, then on that page, pick what version of the mod you want and click on that. The installation process is explained in a .txt file that comes with the mod.

  12. Jadcox777 says:

    the only ones are the the to tornado crafting blocks and it even picks up bed rock

  13. jack says:

    the only thing that is a pain is that the wind is blowing all the time
    in the real world this does not happen (at least were i live)

  14. enoch says:

    what should be added is sandstorms that make sand blocks on there own and can encase the player if he/she is not moving. at sea there should be waves. during a bad rainstorm water can gather and flood. floods that would cover land for 2-3 days then when it pulls back brings stuff with it but leaves some behind.

  15. 123456789 says:

    guys- EPIC IDEA!!! there could be hurricanes that can form over oceans. they will suck up blocks and cause severe wind and rain. however, though they would be more widespread, they would not be as destructive as a tornado over an equal area of the tornado.
