Turn off the weather?

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:
Community Discord: https://discord.gg/nitrado
Guides section: https://server.nitrado.net/guides
Support Wizard: https://support.nitrado.net
  • The new weather included in the June 24 update needs a bit of work by Keen. Major storms every 10 minutes is too much.

    Is there a way to disable weather on Nitrado DS? I would expect it to be in the settings page but don't see it. I'm guessing Nitrado programmers need to catch up with the new release of SE.

  • To manually disable the weather:

    The configuration value is stored in: 'spaceeng_profile/saves/<name of your game>/Sandbox_config.sbc

    Back up the file.

    Edit it and change the value of 'WeatherSystem' from 'true' to 'false'.

    Restart your server.

    If there was a weather event occurring when you did the restart it will be be going. You'll have to stop that manually (alt-F10). After that you should have no more weather.

  • Thank You. I have been looking for this since the update. I have used the Alt-F10 Remove weather command only to have lightning blow a hole in my base literally less than five minutes later. This happened twice in one day.
