WeatherMan allows you to change biomes and repopulate areas ingame with commands, magic-wand and a sign, controlled by redstone power. WorldEdit selections and WorldGuard regions supported.
- Change biomes (you can use: commands, wands, signs, WorldEdit selections and WorldGuard regions)
- Repopulate area according to biome that was previously changed
- Control weather locally: for player, for region, for biome and for whole world.
- Grow trees or cut them off using special wands
- Control biome changing (toggle two biomes) with sign controlled by redstone power.
- Check biome in a your location or inform you about biome changing while you traveling
- Preventing snow-forming and ice-forming in defined biomes.
Why do I want it?
If you need to change biomes, grow new forest, or going to allow your players to do it - you must install WeatherMan :) If you need to "curse" any player with unstoppable rain you can find this plugin useful too.

Update checker and bStats
WeatherMan includes two features that use your server internet connection. First one is bStats, that used to collect information about the plugin (versions of plugin, of Java.. etc.) and second is update checker, checks new releases of plugin after WeatherMan startup and every half hour. This feature is using API provided by dev.bukkit.org. If you don't like this features you can easy disable it. To disable update checker you need to set parameter "version-check" to "false" in config.yml. Obtain more information about bStats and learn how to switch off it, you can read here.
Dev builds available at CricleCI.

Under the how to use section under step 5 it says, "(define biome and radius with commands /lwg biome <biome>, /lwg radius <radius> Right-click with magic wand (default item - ghast tears (id - 370))". Those should say /wm instead of /lwg correct?
@Mayhem777 You can check this list by typing command /wm list
This list is generated automatically and includes all possible biome type (excluding deprecated biomes).
Can you make a lsit or all biomes your plugin accepts? thanks!
I love this plugin! Just having technical difficulties... we want to make an entire region into Hell... problem is we dont know how. Can you do a step by step walk through on how to turn a selected region into a biome?
@fromgate Thank you )
@JM120897 Thank you too :)
Ok, I'll add this option into config.
The ultimate biome mod ! /wm fill <biome> => Change a biome with original limits !
Maybe you can add a link for your topic on "minecraftforum.net"
I already subscribe for updates, could you please add an option to disable looking up the version? Example:
Check version: true/false
