Hello all! Yuyutsu here, and I'd like to introduce you to a mod I've been working on for the past couple months. Welcome to: Various Weathers Various Weathers is a mod that focuses on adding multiple small weather events to Terraria! There are currently 20 different weather effects! Their occurrence will be discussed in further detail down below. Some events have additional content attached to them, but some are nothing more than custom weather effects. Try talking to an NPC to find out what you can do during some weather effects! Weather effects have a predetermined chance of occurring at the start or end of every day (4:30 AM or 7:30 PM). Some weathers need prerequisites (for example, it needs to be raining for Thunderstorms to occur). Some weather effects can occur in tandem, but most only occur by themselves. Let's jump right into each weather effect! Content Light Rain/Heavy Rain Light showers or heavy storms have a chance of occurring when it rains. For one day, rain is either extremely light or very, very heavy (the screen darkens and visibility is near zero). This weather has no additional content. Hail Hail can occur anywhere (except for the desert) but is most common in the Snow Biome! It only occurs while raining. Ice Slimes can spawn anywhere during Hail. Heat Wave Heat waves can occur any day when it's not raining. The heat slows you down and impairs your vision. Try cooling of in water, underground, or in the Ice Biome! Wind/Heavy Wind Windy days can occur occasionally, based on the vanilla wind speed. From 20- 30 mph, light winds can be seen. However, 30+ mph winds can push the player back and throw leaves and more around! Head underground to seek refuge from these powerful gusts! Thunderstorms Thunderstorms can occur at any time while it is raining. Lightning strikes are common above-ground, coupled with new thunder effects! Additional content is as follows: Gliding Voltfish- A variant of the Flying Fish that can electrify nearby players! Voltaic Elemental- A sentient mass of rubble that is supercharged by electricity! Spawns in Hardmode at nighttime, and shoots out small beams of fluctuating electricity at the player! Fluxvolt Staff- Shoots out three beams of fluctuating electricity. Drops from Voltaic Elementals occasionally. Meteor Shower Meteor Showers occur post EoW at nighttime! Multiple vibrant and different colored meteors rain down from the sky, bringing with them a whole host of otherworldly enemies! Ion Courser- A new, fiery worm found in the Meteor Biome during Meteor Showers! Celestial Probe- An astral spaceship that shoots beams at the player! It can spawn anywhere. Celestial Slime- An astral slime with starry energy coursing within. It can spawn anywhere. Panspermic Blob- A monstrous blob that sucks the lifeforce out of nearby players. It can emerge from a crashed meteor. Celestial Conduit- Summons a spatial rift that shoots beams at nearby enemies! Drops from Celestial Slimes/Probes rarely. Meteor Shower- Rains down meteors from the sky and from the staff itself for some deadly crossfire. Drops from Celestial Probes and Ion Coursers rarely. Jellyfish Swarm The ocean seems to be teeming with new waves of Jellyfish! During this time, the ocean will literally glow as only Jellyfish will spawn in the waters. Pink, Blue, and Green Jellyfish have a chance of spawning, as well as certain new Jellies! New fishing catches are available too! It's far easier to catch all types of jellyfish bait. Etheric Jellyfish- A rare jellyfish that creates shadow clones of itself tow attack the player. Upon death, it creates a vortex that suffocates the player. Voltaic Jellyfish- A jellyfish that electrifies the player! Thermal Jellyfish- A fiery jellyfish that burns the player with a stronger burn that can sap your life even underwater! It explodes when dying as well, so watch out. Jellyfish Bait and Jellyfish Jars- Can be caught at the ocean. Viscous Jelly- A throwing weapon that can be caught en-masse and thrown at enemies. They stick to enemies and slow them down! Voltaic Cell- Drops from Voltaic Jellyfish rarely. Electrifies the 'Viscous Jelly' weapon and causes it to completely stun enemies. Thermal Core- Drops from Thermal Jellyfish rarely. Direct melee hits in enemies cause them to combust Etheric Vortex- Killing enemies may create large lift field that propels enemies upwards. Acid Rain Acid Rains are a dangerous event that can occur in Hardmode during the rain! The player and all enemies are afflicted by the 'Acid' debuff which deals damage and cuts defense slightly. The player is also beset by acidic enemies that are quite dangerous. However, make sure you scour the world, for new plants are growing that can cure your ailments... A couple ideas were based on this old suggestion by @SzGamer227 so be sure to check it out! Sulfurous Nimbus- An acidic version of the Angry Nimbus that rains acid on the player! Nitric Horror- A teleporting monster that periodically creates healing bolts that heals nearby enemies if their health was low. Acid Slime- A slime that gets far more aggressive if its health is lowered Tentablob- A slow blob of eyes that releases spurts of eyes whenever it is hit. Releases three tentagnats when killed! Tentagnat- A fast moving eyeball that quickly rushes at the player. Hazmat Zombie- A slow, tough zombie that is clad in Hazmat gear. Tentacle Cluster- Drops from Tentablobs/gnats. Crafts multiple potions and furniture. Toxictop- Grows on grass during Acid Rain! It is poisonous, but it can be used in many potions. Toxictop Brew- Increases melee crit chance and speed at the cost of life regeneration. Flask of Acid- Melee weapons coat enemies in acid. Wardeye Potion- Grants immunity to the Acid debuff! Hazmat Helmet- Drops from Hazmat Zombies rarely. Grants immunity to the 'Acid' debuff. Works in vanity slots too! Razoreye- A homing boomerang that can drop from all Acid Rain enemies. Hornet- A very rare gun that drops from any enemy. Its shots create lingering pools of acid. Tentabow- Drops from Tentablobs and Gnats rarely. Occasionally shoots out a spurt of eyes as well as arrows. Ashfall/Ashstorm Ashfall and Ash Storms are a hardmode weather evemt. Ashfall simply causes ash to rain down from the sky. Ashstorms, however, are far more dangerous, coupled with monsters from another world... Ash Spawn- A common, volatile enemy that combusts into fireballs whenever it is hit! Ash Hopper- A speedy enemy that rushes at the player Netch- A slow moving, tentacled beast that can electrify the player! It is surrounded by its brood of 2-3 Netch Calves, which are smaller and less powerful. Spawn Rider- An Ash Spawn upon an Ash Hopper that wields a staff that shoots fireballs at the player. Ash Hopper Leg- Drops from Ash Hoppers. A consumable snack that regenerates the player! Netch Jelly- Drops from Netches. An important ingredient. Heart Stone- Drops from Ash Spawns occasionally. An important ingredient in the crafting of many staves. Netchbile Potion- Crafted with Waterleaf, Netch Jelly, and Ash Hopper Legs. Allows the player to stun enemies. Netchrift Staff- Crafted with Heart Stones and Netch Jelly. Summons a circle of tentacles at the cursor position. Fiery Frostfall- Crafted with Heart Stones and a Frost Core. Shoots out a core of fire and ice. Shardstorm- Crafted with Heart Stone and Crystal Shards. Shoots out a bolt of crystals that split into tiny crystal shards. Boreal Aurora Boreal Auroras are a nighttime event in which Auroras illuminate the night sky in the Snow Biome and Outer Space! The event is relatively calm, and has some beautiful music, but also a couple of ethereal enemies and loot! Taigal Tern- A fast arctic bird that occasionally charges at the player. Boreal Stag- A passive deer until it has been damaged. It will then charge at the player, shooting homing Aurora Wisps at the player! Aurora Veil- An ephemeral veil that shoots different projectiles at the player based on what type of weapo type they are using. Borealis- Drops from Taigal Terns rarely. All arrows shot out are illuminated with a blue light. Use it to light your way! Boreal Mask- Drops from Boreal Stags rarely. Increases max minion slots, and also offers a set bonus when worn with Boreal Wood Armor! Prismatic Orb- Drops from Aurora Veils rarely. Getting hurt may release a homing wisp from the player. Hurricane Hurricanes are very rare rain events! The wind increases to a whopping 100mph, and lightning is very common. Projectiles and items are all buffeted by the strong winds. Be careful! Tremors Tremors are a dangerous underground event! A tremor occurs once on the surface to indicate the player of the dangers lurking below. Tremors then only occur underground, and increase in intensity the further you travel underground. Mining is more profitable, as mining stone yields rare ore and gems, but may also release entrapped enemies.. Tarsap Horror- Spawns when mining stone rarely. It rains down sticky, slowing tar upon the player. Lavalith- Spawns at the Cavern level and the Underworld. Shoots out geysers of searing flame at the player! Fossil Bow- Drops from Tarsap Horrors rarely. Converts arrows into powerful Bone Arrows. Cold Fronts Cold Fronts are the counterpart to Heat Waves. In them, the background turns to a snowcapped mountain ridge, and water becomes cold and chilly! Snow rains down from the sky around the world, and snowy enemies spawn anywhere! Butterfly Swarms/Firefly Swarms Butterfly and Firefly Swarms are peaceful events that increase the likelihood of finding Butterflies and Fireflies. They happen at day or night, respectively. Tranquil Winds Tranquil Winds are a purity-only event wherein enemies do not spawn, and all hostile weather ceases. Leaves fall from the sky, and calm music plays. Water glows and regenerates the player, and the spawnrates of critters increase. Stardust Stardust is a simple nighttime event in which sparks and stardust rain from the sky.
