About this mod

This mod makes each weather type last longer, you can get random bad weather when you load the game or wake up, weather can persist while you sleep, or even when you quit the game.

Permissions and credits
Version 1.2:
-The timer values are now in-game hours. That should make them less confusing, and they change with your timescale, so less hustle.
 Just like with the previous versions, the default values are not too large, so change them if you want weather to last really long.
-Added options to make clear weather last longer.
-More polishing...

Introduction: Are you tired of waking up to sunshine and bird singing every. single. day. even if you went to sleep during a hurricane? Want to stay at home and dwell on the past on rainy days but... there are no rainy days? This mod might be just the thing for you.

What this mod does:
(You can customize everything below in the ini file.)

-Each type of weather will last longer.
This mod does *not* make it rain or snow more often, but when the game decides it's time for bad weather it'll last longer. There's also an option to make clear / sunny weather last longer.
The default values are only 2-5 extra in-game hours, if you want actual rainy days or thunderstorms that last all night you have to set your own values in the ini.

-Weather can persist while you sleep.
Depending on how many hours you sleep and how long the current weather is set to last, weather might persist while you're asleep.

-A chance for random bad weather when you wake up.
If you go to sleep during clear weather there's a chance that you'll wake up to random bad weather.

-Make weather persist through quitting / loading the game.
This can be a little  wonky since the mod doesn't save while the weather is transitioning from one type to another (not always apparent if it's happening).
If your weather isn't restored when you re-load the game it's likely because of this. Might improve it later..
Also the mod can't differentiate one save from another. If you load up a different save the mod will load the weather from the previous save.

-A chance for random bad weather when loading the game.
If your saved weather is clear/sunny (or you don't use the save feature) there's a chance for random bad weather when you load up the game.

Since it can be hard to tell if the mod is working as intended, if you think you're experiencing an issue (mod not working, weather is stuck, etc..) please check the log file MorePersistentWeather.log in you game's root folder, you'll find some info about what's going on.
If it doesn't help or you actually found and issue let me know!

Also: For example rainy weather can (but not necessarily) be like this:
sunny > rain > thunderstorm > light rain > sunny
In this case the mod will activate three times, during each rainy type weather. Keep this in mind if you set custom values in the ini, they can add up and make bad weather last longer than you might expect.

Currently fast travel will reset weather as per usual.
