🌟 Welcome RPG Makers~ 🌟


Game Devs Agatha and Sen at your service!


RPG Maker MZ didn't come with too many weather effects. Only three: rain, storm, and snow. This plugin will ramp that number up a considerable amount and revise the way the original three weathers look, too. These new weather patterns will help breathe life into your game for various scenarios and/or cutscenes. The added control and customization options mean you can alter their behaviors to your liking.

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Assign multiple weathers up to a max of 20. For maps, there are 10 layers on top of the map and another 10 layers behind the tilemap (but above the parallax layer).
  • Set certain maps to not show any weather through notetags. This allows you to avoid having to turn on and off your weather settings.
  • The basic RPG Maker MZ weather patterns (Rain, Storm, and Snow) have been recreated to look better than before.
  • Plugin Commands allow for game devs to place the newly added weather types with intricate levels of customization.
  • Customization options available for weather patterns include spawn numbers control, spawn location control, opacity easing, trajectory properties, coloring options, overlay dimmer control, and more!
  • There are 10 weather patterns for each of the 8-themed elements, alongside lots of preset icon-related weather patterns for over 80+ weather pattern types to choose from.
  • More basic and easier to use directional flying icon weather patterns of varying speeds can be used to ease yourself into how weather patterns can be customized.
  • Newly added weather patterns come with their own generated sprites. There's no need to use custom images or such unless you want to. Custom images can come in the form of icons or pictures. Some generated sprites include many variances (such as Snowflakes).
  • Weather layers can now be placed on top of the map or below the map, aka between the tilemap and parallax layer.
  • Plugin Commands allow the player to clear multiple weather layers, adjust the power of multiple weather layers, memorize, and even replay multiple weather layer patterns in a go.
  • Up to 20 layers can be used for weather, all of each having different settings. 10 layers for above the map. 10 layers for below the map. This can be utilized to create more detailed weather effects than ever before.
  • Common Events can be linked up with weather patterns, launching parallel whenever a weather particular respawns, allowing for special effects like screen flashes and/or playing sounds. This allows devs to match up certain weather patterns like thunder sounds and flashes with thunder bolts.
  • A new option "Weather Density" has been added. The amount of weather sprites on screen can be tuned downward in order to reduce frame drops for players with weaker computers.
