    Default Night and Day

    I'm modifying a bot script for Casmira so that the weather gets updated to coincide with our local weather here from the National Weather Service. Can't make it rain yet though, but the clouds thicken up and the light dims etc.

    This is a pic of Casmira's gate station on a clear night, taken from Brutal Dreamer's house on a nearby hill.

    That's awsome Louis! Does this mean there will be flooding when you can make it rain? Wouldn't want B's lovely boat to capsize!

    LOL! Making it flood there would be too reminiscent of what happens *here* when it rains too hard. With all due respect to realism, I think I'll forego the flooding and just make the waves churn around a little more!

    "Flooding...." sheesh! lol!

    Yeah, you wouldn't want to have to wet-vac Casmira. Lol! The clouds look nice though!

    Absolutely I wouldn't! There's *way* too much water in there to suck up, and the furniture in everyone's homes would just be ruined because I haven't made a 3d model of a wet vac yet!




    ...thanks Pete!

    Heather, I gave the boat a move command so now it sails around a bit in the water. Didn't want the anchor to pull it under in the event that lja got it to rain!

    The full moon is really awesome to, Louis!

    Cheers!
