Change the upcoming weather

Open your savegame folder at Documents/My Games/WinterResortSimulator/savegames and select the .lua file from the savegame you want to change something.

The best way to run the “.lua” file is with a text editor like “Notepad ++”. Then you search with CTRL + F for the term followingSituationList. Now you should see the term followingSituationList.

{
	situation = "snowy1",
	duration = 105862,
},

Here you can change the upcoming weather scenarios.

Change the wather situation to the desired situation (always edit the text between the double quotes ( ).

You can choose between following situations:

  • cloudless
  • cloudy1
  • cloudy2
  • snowy1
  • snowy2

Change the type of weather

Also it is possible to change a complete weather situation.

Therefore you need to search with CTRL + F for the term weatherSituations.

Choose your weather situation from one of the situations:

  • cloudless
  • cloudy1
  • cloudy2
  • snowy1
  • snowy2

In this tutorial, this will be done with the situation cloudless:

cloudless = {
	durationMin = 28800,
    durationMax = 86400,
	updateInterval = 900,
	avalancheRisk = 0,
	guestShare = 1,
	icon = 1,
	dailySnowfall = 0,
	dailyThaw = 0.5,
	dailyHardenDay = 0,
	dailyHardenNight = 4,
	weatherData = {
	    {
			probability = 0.95,
			weather = 0,
		},
		{
			probability = 0.05,
			weather = 1,
		},
	},
	followingSituations = {
		{
			probability = 0.3,
			situation = "cloudless",
		},
		{
			probability = 0.2,
			situation = "cloudy1",
		},
		{
			probability = 0.2,
			situation = "cloudy2",
		},
		{
			probability = 0.2,
			situation = "snowy1",
		},
		{
			probability = 0.1,
			situation = "snowy2",
		},
	},
},

You can change at the part weatherData the type of weather which will be shown when the respective weatherSituation is active.

Therefore you just need to change the number at weather = * ,

weatherData = {
	{
		probability = 0.95,
		weather = 0,
	},
	{
		probability = 0.05,
		weather = 1,
	},
},
  • weather = 0 → Clear Sky
  • weather = 1 → Cloudy 1
  • weather = 2 → Cloudy 2
  • weather = 3 → Cloudy 3
  • weather = 4 → Cloudy 4
  • weather = 5 → Foggy
  • weather = 6 → Light Rain
  • weather = 7 → Heavy Rain
  • weather = 8 → Light Snow
  • weather = 9 → Heavy Snow
  • weather =10 → Storm

From now on the chosen weather will be shown, when the edited weather situation is active.
