I host a 1.7.10 server, and when I see a tornado, another player doesn't see it, or vice versa. I don't know what setting I can change to fix this. Has anyone had a similar issue and found a way to resolve it?
Does the server have the same version of the mod as you two have?
Yes it does. I don't believe we'd be able to connect with different versions. Either way, I'm certain we are, because I was on a screen share with my friend while he was on, so I could see what he saw, and confirmed he was using the correct version and not seeing the storm that was right in front of his face on my screen. He could see the effects of it, like the mobs being pulled in and whatnot, but he was not affected by it himself.
Downgrade one version if possible, see if that fixes the issue.
If not you'll need to contact the mod author as it's possible a bug has snuck into the mod.
I'm subscribed to this thread but I don't get notifications of replies. Sorry for the late responses, and thanks for your input. I tried reaching out to the mod author, and see he's been online and active, but did not receive a response. Probably because it's an old version. I did try downgrading as well. It's probably some sort of mod conflict unfortunately. I think I may have found a solution for now at least. By enabling overcast mode, which if I understand correctly tells the mod to only generate storms when Minecraft would generate rain or a storm, seems to have synced things for now. I must have overlooked this as an option and/or just didn't know enough about the mod at the time of the post. I have to test this further to be sure, but I can update when I have done so with the results, if you're interested.
