  • Change biomes (you can use: commands, wands, signs, WorldEdit selections and WorldGuard regions)
  • Repopulate area according to biome that was previously changed
  • Control weather locally: for player, for region, for biome and for whole world.
  • Grow trees or cut them off using special wands
  • Control biome changing (toggle two biomes) with sign controlled by redstone power.
  • Check biome in a your location or inform you about biome changing while you traveling
  • Preventing snow-forming and ice-forming in defined biomes.

Why do I want it?

If you need to change biomes, grow new forest, or going to allow your players to do it - you must install WeatherMan :) If you need to "curse" any player with unstoppable rain you can find this plugin useful too.

How Do I Install It?

Just copy it in your server /plugins/ folder.

How to use it?

  • Install
  • Use command /wm set biome:<biome> radius:<radius> to change biome around you
  • Use command /wm set biome:<biome> to change biome at area selected using WorldEdit
  • Use command /wm set biome:<biome> region:<region name> to change biome at WorldGuard region defined by name
  • Use command /wm replace biome:<biome> fill:true to change biome in your location to new one
  • Use command /wm give [biome | woodcutter | depopulator | forester] to obtain all or specified wand.
  • Use command /wm wand to enable wand mode (define biome and radius with commands /wm wand biome: radius: tree: Right-click with magic wand and you'll shoot the snowball that will change the biome around the hit-point, remove or grow trees.
  • Create sign and type [biome] in second line, radius value in third, and biome names in first and forth lines. You can set word "replace" in third line if you need to replace the full biome. Now you can use redstone power to toggle between two biomes.

Update checker and bStats
