This new weather effect would be rain. I think that the post speaks for itself. You can access the weather effect panel by looking at the buttons just below the room style list. In case you didn't know.

I do like the idea. Though you do realize that the Deadly Browser of Death says how to access that panel, do you?

In case people didn't know how to access that. Then they can learn how to access the DBOD (Deadly Browser Of Deach) (F1) and learn how to access the panel, and finally, get this idea and do stuff with it.

It is a tad silly to have only snow, and not rain. I was surprised by that the first time I went into the editor. Wouldn't take *too* much work to add, surely - it's just a simple layer over the top.

The thundersnowstorm in the opening sequence of Terrakept Resonant is a result of this lack of rain. I would appreciate some sort of simple rain effect being added. :)

I agree it's silly to have snow without rain. But I wasn't able to come up with a rain graphic+effect that I was satisfied with, so I left it out. If anyone with drawing and/or coding prowess wants to try making something happen, I'm not against adding it to the game.

That is a valid point. But my ability to work on DROD is stretched very thin of late, and I'd rather work on our new games whenever I have the opportunity rather than gold plating -- see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_plating_(disambiguation) .

I didn't say you had to work on it! It should be a miniature project that could be good. Or, one of us could work on it by using the magic that you use to do stuff. Let's see, what can we do for rain?...

Could we dev board these ideas? Rain, sleet, hail, lightning reflected in water, etc?

I don't think DROD needs to be gold-plated, as I think it's solid gold already.
