Weather, also known as precipitation, is a (currently) purely cosmetic functionality in the game.

Weather was first introduced with the initial alpha release of the game, however was shortly disabled on 19 March 2017 due to performance issues. The functionality was reintroduced into the game on 10 June 2017, in an experimental build; adding "more realistic, predictable & forecastable weather patterns"[1].

Types of Weather[]

There are currently two types of weather effects in the game: rain and snow. However, there is also support for different types of precipitation in the game, including fog and lightning.

As of currently, the only weather effect enabled in the game is rain.


  • The speed of the game does not affect the speed in which rain moves (with exception to being paused).
