It means the server had the rain set as frog and made the density super low.

The frog is a "pet" of Bzfx.net/boxywar. his name is mr. nibbles and shows up randomly in every client by using rain settings.

Just by editing _rainTexture you can put anything in as long as the client(s) have that URL allowed.

One day, I was walking down the aisles of a pet store when I saw a frog. I thought 'Wouldn't that be a great BoxyWar pet?'. So, I bought him and dropped him on the map. We had a vote, and he was named Mr. Nibbles.

A week later I noticed there was a second frog! I asked whre this one came from; the answers are mixed. Some say it's Mrs. Nibbles, some say he's Mr. Nibbles Jr. Though I have to wonder how Mr. Nibbles Jr. came to be without a Mrs. Nibbles, if that's true. The third idea was that he was created because he wasn't noticed very often at all with only one frog, but nobody likes that idea.

Yeah, Rain n Frogs has been using that as a rain texture for as long as I can remember (a couple years now, I think...?).

They have, however, been known to be used as land mines, though...

Boxy's server has a consistent weather report : slightly cloudy with chance of frog.

I named and co-created Mr. Nibbled with TD-Linux; than he created Mrs. Nibbles, seeing as Mr. Nibbles was getting lonely--Frogs have feelings too!
