Re: [CODE] Weather System

Well the approach I took, when I was messing around with this,  was to
create a zone variable called climate.  Then you define different types such
as arid, tropical, arctic, etc.  And in the weather code you have when ever
it calls for specific weeather pattern,  like rain/snow,  just have it run a
switch(cliamte_var) and run through your different climates.  This may be a
hard way of doing it, but was the easiest to think of in about 30 minutes.
Any further questions, etc just send to me directly.
