Let It Rain Poster

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be caught in a rainstorm of pigs falling from the sky? Your search is over!

With Let It Rain, you will be able to spawn massive storms of mobs over yourself or other players. You can control the creature type, the amount, the radius and the target. Raining TNT, arrows, snowballs and all blocks/items also available (see notes for more). LetItRain generates a config.yml which lets you edit the blacklist, the default values and the message that will be displayed when a command is called. Zeus and Strike commands also available. Please read "Notes" as there are some exceptions.

Please Read The Following :

  • LetItRain.* permission gives the player all the plugin's permissions
  • <entity> can be any mob, "arrows", "TNT", "snowballs", "xpOrbs", "fireballs", etc, as well as ALL blocks (ID or name). Check config.yml for complete list, all case-insensitive
  • Raining lava or water actually spawns a massive carpet in the sky! Use at your own risks, there is NO UNDO!
  • Rain potions using the following command: /rain potion:<potion_name>
  • Rain zeus (or lightnings) can damage your world and has no UNDO. If your intention is do not damage the world, set the configuration Lightning explosion power to 0, this will only spawn the fire. **
  • The parameter <player> <amount> and <radius> for /rain command are OPTIONAL. e.g : '/rain pigs' would use the default values in config.yml and will rain on yourself
  • Add an 's' after the amount to make it the duration of the rain (in seconds) instead of amount. The creature amount will then be defined automatically based on the given radius to prevent epic lag!
  • rain (& firerain) and strike commands can be used from console but requires the <player> parameter

Developers :


What's To Come :

  • Add coordinate to slaughter command
  • Rain lightning
  • Rain blocks with data types (ie. 95:1)
  • Potion splash

    @Maty241: Go

    Do you mean item ID? If so, I can't. :P My custom items are still minecraft's items, but they have a name and lore that turns them into the custom item. For instance, I have custom enchantments. Lets say I enchant a diamond chestplate with plain vanilla enchantments. Protection 3. Then add a custom one. Hellforged 4. And name it, Maty's lucky plate. I want to be able to rain that specific item. Name, enchants, and lore. Everything. So I thought a feature that'll allow you to rain your hand would be nifty. (/rain hand SlayerMarth 100 32)

    @slayermarth101: Go

    Hi, Can you try using the item id of your custom item? Maybe that will work!

    Is it possible for you to add the feature that'll allow us to rain the item we're holding? I have custom items that technically aren't in minecraft and I'd like to drop them. Other items with custom abilities that are apart of the lore. So how likely is it that you can set up something that like... Copies what we're holding then rains it based on how many and what radius we specify?

    Hello. I changed a think that can fix this, but not shure. On my local server and tests is working fine for pigs and all entities, and itens.

    Edit: Fixed on latest version.

    Hello @FabioZumbi12. Whenever i try a command like /rain pigs [username] 10 it just returns with "an internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command". Am i entering commands wrong or is it to do with the plugin? Also as a side note, I have tried to uninstall all my plugins and it still will not work. I will use pastebin to show you the full log of said server.

    Pastebin: Server error log.

    If you'd like to email me to guarantee a reply quickly within a day then please check your pm's for email(s) you can contact me by.

    Have a wonderful day! Be safe :)
