    DOE: Weather Extension

    Overview
    This Extension provides a Ruleset-Neutral database and the mechanics to generate the Day-To-Day Weather for a given Place. It will work with or without the DOE: Locations.

    A screenshot is provided.
    Weather_Figure_04.png

    Full details are provided in the accompanying Manual (a Module). The Manual can be opened by Fantasy Ground v3+ using any Ruleset, with or without the Extension being loaded.

    Version
    • 1.0.0 - Initial Creation
    • 2.0.0 - Compatibility Update
    • 2.2.0 - Added Sound Integration with DOE Sound Extension
    • 3.0.0 - Compatibility Update & Bug Fixes
    • 3.2.0 - Compatibility Update, Fixed issues with Simple Brown & Simple Gray Themes, add support for StarFinder Ruleset (Graphics still required)
    • 3.2.1 - Current - Compatibility Update
    • 5.0.0 - Current - See Post #207


    Manual Version
    • 2.0.0 - Initial Creation
    • 3.0.0 - Compatibility Update
    • 3.2.1 - Current - Compatibility Update


    Rulesets
    This Extension works with:
    • CoreRPG Ruleset v3.3.8, CoreRPG Rulesst v3.3.9, and selected Child Rulesets.


    Dependencies
    This Extension is dependent on:


    Wiki Page & Full Documentation


    Rulesets By Dulux-Oz


    Other Extensions By Dulux-Oz


    Downloading The Extension
    This Extension and its accompanying Documentation can be downloaded from the links at the bottom of this post.

    Loading The Extension
    This Extension is loaded exactly like all other Fantasy Grounds Extensions - by first copying the .ext file to the Extensions Folder under the Fantasy Grounds Folder and then re-starting Fantasy Grounds. If the Extension is compatible with the currently installed version of a given Ruleset it will be displayed in the Extensions List for that Ruleset and can be loaded by clicking on the Checkbox next to the Extensions name.

    If the Extension has large red 'X' next to its name in the Extension List then the Extension or an Extension that this one is dependent upon is not compatible with the chosen Ruleset. Make sure that you have downloaded and installed the latest copy of this Extension and any Extensions this one is dependent upon.

    When Fantasy Grounds Updates
    After a Fantasy Grounds version update you should verify that all Extensions (not just this one) have been either updated themselves or verified by the Extension author that they work with the new version of Fantasy Grounds. If you have any issues with Fantasy Grounds after an update then it is best to disable all Extensions and then re-enable them one by one until the issue re-appears.

    Awesome work! Any chance of providing a screenshot or two in the above posts? Just to give us an idea of what it will look like...

    Give me a second, I've only just posted the damn thing

    Actually, the Screen Shots are going to have to wait for a day or two - sorry, I'll get them done but I've got a couple of things to do first (sleep, for one) - my PCs down at the moment and I'm working on a Laptop with a small resolution screen.

    Cheers

    And during that 15 minutes I was madly doing the formatting of the raw data I dumped into the posts

    This is awesome!

    I seem to ave a problem though. No matter how many times I hit the "generate today's weather button", I get Precipitation = None, and special Weather = None.

    Edit: This is on the second days weather. On the first day's weather, I always get "None" and "Galelasting for 6hours" respectively.

    Note: The lack of a space in "Galelasting" and "6hours" is intentional. It's a typo in the weather extension.

    OK, I've found the two bugs (thanks for letting me know) - I missed that particular combination in my testing - sorry.

    I'll get a update patch out ASAP, but it might take me a day of two (work, etc)

    In the meantime, I've pulled the Extension file from this thread because the issue is big enough I'd rather do that then have others experience any problems.

    Thanks

    Can't wait to give it a try! I've been a bit hesitant to dive into your awesome extensions, mainly because I'm afraid to sink too much game dev time into any tech that I can't replace with something else, especially when they aren't core FG modules/functionality. But you're making it harder and harder to... resist the temptation... of... shiny... awesome... RPG coolness! *wipes sweaty brow*

    Thanks Dr V - I was having a really sh!tty day before I read that, and you perked me up - I actually laughed out loud (and snorted coffee through my nose - thanks )

    Go on... don't resist... they're too nice... and soft... and warm... and shiny... }:-)

    You're welcome. It *is* getting harder to resist... this weather module may just push me over the edge.
