Latest file for v1.19.3: 1-click install

Simple mod that randomizes wind direction based on location and time. In vanilla, this only affects two things:

  • The direction creatures are pushed by wind
  • The direction falling items are pushed (visible mainly on maple seeds)

Most other things (like windmills, dust and smoke particles, etc.) are hardcoded to the vanilla direction and too much to change without a more serious attempt. This mod will likely be most useful with other mods that benefit from randomised wind.

Hello, I see your GitHub for the mod has a commit later than release here. I want to change the scale of regions to make wind changes less often, can I use the latest commit code for this, or do you plan to release an update soon?

Grifthegnome thank you for checking!

I wrote a debug draw script to visualize wind direction and test if Simple Wind Direction still works on 1.19.1 and I can confirm it still works. The logic is so self-contained that it is unlikely to break for the forseeable future.

Will this mod be updated to 1.19?

💬 iodide, Dec 3rd 2023 at 6:43 PM

Can anyone confirm if this works using v.1.19pre?

Lantalia Hi there!

I'm actually working on a config system right now, but it's a bigger project in my case, with a GUI and other features. I didn't want to add a simpler config system just to replace it with one that's probably incompatible anyway. Feel free to fork though, I have a lot of work to do on my version so it will take a while still :)

Also uh... if you haven't yet, you should remove the #if DEBUG line on top of SimpleWindDirectionSystem.cs. Apparently I never pushed the fixed version to the repo, haha

Are you accepting pull requests? I have config support written, and am just testing it. Otherwise, likely going to need to fork it

Unfortunately I've had basically no time for modding or VS in general for a while now. A config is still planned though, possibly even with an option to change how often wind strength changes, since that's a very common request as well. I'll have to do more research on that though

I second rogue raiden, sailing is pretty annoying atm.

💬 RogueRaiden, Jun 14th 2023 at 2:57 PM

still hoping for that config option for adjusting how often the wind changes direction 🤞\

when used with Joy of Sailing, the wind changes far too frequently making it annoying to sail any decent distance

💬 RogueRaiden, May 15th 2023 at 1:30 AM

would love config options for how often the wind changes

💬 TeacupAngelAuthor, May 9th 2023 at 10:07 PM


Absolutely. If it's a priority then I'll make sure to get on it sooner :)

💬 Chumber, May 8th 2023 at 10:58 PM

Would it be possible for this to have a config that would allow changing how often the wind changes direction? As-is, it seems to change far too frequently.

💬 Moby_, Apr 24th 2023 at 6:47 PM

RogueRaiden it won't right now but I'm working on an update for that, it might take a few days

💬 RogueRaiden, Apr 24th 2023 at 5:37 PM

would this affect Joy of Sailing wind direction?

💬 TeacupAngelAuthor, Apr 3rd 2023 at 10:16 PM


Aw dang, haha. Thanks for letting me know! :)

💬 DanaCraluminum, Apr 3rd 2023 at 3:59 PM
