I...for some reason I was expecting that weather was going to be per-chunk since Notch had shown weather changes across chunk boundaries in his video.
What I saw tonight when entering under 1.5 for the first time was that a very irregular boundary between grass and sand not conforming to any chunk boundary (which is just a 16x16 square, right?) the grass had rain and the sand had no rain. Now yeah, maybe that's less disconcerting/immersion-breaking than square zones of rain, but it's still odd :wink.gif:
Gotta say though that stepping under a tree to get out of the rain is very immersive :smile.gif:
