Occasionally a dark grey cloud would appear in the sky, with an announcement saying that a storm has started. This storm would slowly head in a seemingly random direction, or not move at all. If a player is under this cloud, rain drops would appear on his/her screen and the player would lose health stats.
If under cover (this can include, buildings, caves, trees and any other resource in the game) you would not take damage or have rain drops on screen. However your screen would be darker than usual.
To survive a storm you would have to stay under cover in order to not take damage—however, if you needed to travel it was recommended that you add a pillar and a "roof" over your seat. This would also stop you from taking damage.
- The storm cloud is solid and it is possible to stand on it and make a base on the cloud.
- The duration of the storm is random.
- The skybox will change into another darker skybox during a storm.
- An excellent way to avoid a storm effect completely is to put a welded bush stump on a player's head. This avoids rain whether you are walking or on boat/land vehicle travel.
- Storms no longer exist
