Weather

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Weather can be changed using setWeather and setWeatherBlended functions. In GTA: SA, every weather has different parameters for the sunrise, morning, midday, noon, afternoon, sunset, night and midnight, so a weather can vary a lot deppending of the time of the day.

Non-standard weather ID's between 20 and 255 are also supported, but they might be buggy at some moments of the day.

MTA: SA has custom weather functions which can modify how a weather is rendered, but in this list the weathers are described without taking that into account. Also, using setWeatherBlended allows for more undocumented effects.
