Out of curiosity I added snow to a BG2 area. I used DLTCEP to change the area's weather to 100 Snow, started a new game and used the console to move to the area... It was raining. About 10 minutes of fiddling with the editor achieved nothing so I deleted the area from Override. I used the area's script to set the weather to Snow, which actually did work. The trouble with that is that it seems temporary as after resting the snow stops.


Anyway, does anyone know if there a problem with snow in general or could it be the way DLTCEP saves an area's weather settings? I checked to be sure I set Snow to 100 several times.

How long did you set the effect to last ? And how often.
As in, it might have just been removed after the first go around, if you just set it with a help of a global you check.
Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

He set it in the area file. I don't think bg2 supports snow though.

I set it in the area file first, which caused Rain rather than Snow.


For the second attempt I added;




to the area's script. That way DOES result in snow, but I don't know how to set a duration on it. The snow stops as soon as I rest, I haven't checked how long the snow will last if I leave the game unpaused and just let it run.


I'm not sure how to set a duration using that Action. If anyone knows how please post an example.

Don't know where to find it, but I am pretty sure there has been a lot of literature posted on that subject and that snow settings don't work in BG2 classic.
