Rainfrogs: /set _rainType ??? dont know try frogs ???

this can be set on chat console as admin or even with

Code: Select all

-vars /path/to/varsfile
with varsfile contains

Code: Select all

set _rainType rain
more on varsfile syntax is in manpage of bzfs. If someone knows the place where all possible vars/values are documented i also intrested :)

weather on servers is set by the admins.. you cannot set it. If you run a server yourself or is an admin of a server, the variables are:
/set _rainType snow
/set _rainType rain
/set _rainType frog

the .conf file for a server is located in the folder "data" under bzflag.. named "bzfs.conf".. Instructions are inside
Formerly "nader"

There are also a number of other varialbes that set the rain options. The raintype is just a fast way to set to one of the defaults.

You can actualy set your rain to anything.

use /set and look for all the commands that start with _rain
