PLEASE DON'T LEAVE BEFORE EITHER POSTING A COMMENT SAYING WHY YOU LIKE THE MOD, WHY YOU DON'T LIKE IT, OR WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE CHANGED OR ADDED. (please?)

The Weather Machine Mod adds a weather machine block which, when powered with redstone, changes the surrounding area in a 64 block diameter in different ways depending on what block is placed underneath it, as listed below:

Blocks That Can Be Used:

Sand: Changes an area to be more desert like (Sandstone can also be used, with slight differences).

Snow(block): Covers the area in snow, freezes water and turns lava to obsidian.

Dirt: Changes an area to be more dirty (Grass and mycelium can also be used, with slight differences).

Netherrack: Changes an area to be netherlike (Soulsand can also be used, with slight differences).

Water: Replaces all air blocks with water blocks.

Sponge: Replaces water blocks in the area with air blocks.

End Stone: Creates an End like area, and turns trees to obsidian.

Stone: Changes an area to stone.

ANY type of wool: Replaces basic blocks in an area with wool blocks of the color you used.

ANY type of wood: Replaces basic blocks in an area with wood blocks of the type you used.


NOTE: These do not ONLY change blocks in an area to that type of block, they change the whole THEME
Eg. Sand changes dirt to sand, stone to sandstone, lava to water, etc. Netherrack changes dirt and stone to netherrack, sand to soulsand, water to lava, etc. THESE ARE NOT GLITCHES!
Valuable blocks do not change and aren't created using the normal weather machine.
New in version 1.7.6: Blocks under weather machines will not change anymore, even when using another weather machine.

A weather machine with a diameter of only 9 blocks is also added, for using in small areas.

A handheld item is added. Instead of placing the block under a weather machine, you can right click the block (make sure you click the top, not the side!).

A replacer block can be used in many ways. Place the block you want replaced on top and the block you are replacing it with below, and it will do that for all blocks in a 64 block diameter. Back up worlds before using this block, because sometimes if you place an incorrect block, minecraft can crash. All normal blocks should be fine to use though.

A replacer block with a diameter of only 9 blocks is added, for using in small areas.

An advanced weather machine and mini advanced weather machine can not be crafted, but can do all the things the normal weather machine can do, as well as having a function for when a diamond/gold/iron ore block is placed underneath, which makes an 'ore-ful' word (see what I did there?) and for when a diamond/gold/iron block is placed underneath, making a somewhat more shiny world.

The advanced weather changer item also has these properties.

All the blocks are accessible in the blocks tab of the creative inventory. The recipes for the weather machine blocks are in the pictures.

INSTALLATION:
Either - Drag all the files from the zip into your minecraft jar to install. or move the weather machine zip into the /.minecraft/mods folder.

Requires risugami's modloader.

BACK UP YOUR WORLDS!!!

Please give ideas on new functions. Credit will be given. Please can someone make a mod spotlight for the current version? Credit will be given. And if you do make a spotlight, include everything I have written in this post, otherwise people will not understand properly.
Give diamonds too :) (Please?)

SPECIAL CREDIT TO:

braden08 and yoshiman444 for being supportive and giving ideas,
rock0520 for coming up with the idea of handheld items,
phileep2 for designing the recipes and coming up with ideas.

Sure, a few people have offered now. I will look at all of them and use the best. For the ones which I won't use as the main one, I will leave links on this page to those videos. If you do make one, post the link in the comments here.
And please give a diamond?

We can do the video within a day hopefully, If you could please PM me a small "Guide" sort of message, that would be great. Just stuff like how to do what and what to do with this. Just so we don't stumble ourselves through and mess anything up. I'll be fiddling with this mod for a bit.

Hello, that sounded really cool! Thus is why I am here. I have a mod idea. It's for what if you could create diamonds? What if you could dye them? Please note, I have absolute no experience making mods. So here's my idea. The items that would be new is: Colored diamond armor (will not go through them), the microwave, rainbow ore, red, orange, yellow... ingots (will be same as wool dye), Rainbow block, rain-bow, bow sword, carbon ore and carbon, stuff like that. So technically, this adds the power to make diamonds. All you do is put carbon at the bottom of the microwave (it's like a furnace) and diamond at the top. For as long as you want, it will generate more diamond, with a cap of 64. Now, there would be a slot next to that, to place the color ore. That generates that specific color of diamond. For the colored armor, it needs to be one solid color. Also, you can make the dye into a block for extras, and turn that block into a sword or bow. So, if it's humanly possible to make the mod, and you like the idea, please tell me! Kthxbai

You should make a handheld weather machine so that you can change the ground without having to place a weather machine on the ground and you can choose the thing you want to change it to in a menu.

You should make it so you open up the block and simply TYPE the biome you want it to be and the radius you want to transform.
Example:
Biome: [Type Biome Here] Radius:[Type Radius Of Biome Here]
