Sets rain density smoothly over the given transition time. A transition time of zero means an immediate change. A rain density of zero is no rain, one is maximum rain. Rain is not possible when overcast is less than 0.7.
Arma 3
Since Arma 3 this command is multiplayer synchronised:
  • If executed on server, the changes will propagate globally.
  • If executed on client, the effect is temporary and will soon change to the server setting.
Minimum overcast needed for rain in Arma 3 is 0.5.
Prior to Arma 3, each client and the server could have different rain values.


time setRain rain
time: Number - Transition time in seconds to the new value
rain: Number - New rain value in range 0 to 1.
Return Value:


Example 1:

Using Example 2 on dedicated server might need additional interference on JIP clients. The reason is that JIP has rain value > 0 slowly changing to 0. To force client to sync one can execute this on client: skipTime 1; skipTime -1;
