There is this mod No Summer Rain http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=249786 There are mods for more rain, so maybe looking at those would help with making a mod do the opposite and give less rain.

Thanks. I might swap it in when playing my desert subhoods and then back out.

There is a mod that does that, right here on MTS. I can't remember the name but, I'll try to find it.

I checked the mod by Sophie-David, but I am not sture whether it's what I am looking for.
I would like to see a forecast weather report that's actually correct (I know not really realistic maybe). Because the one on TV and in the paper aren't always right.

I just put them in a zip or rarfile again. Then the game won't load it and it doesn't take up as much space.

Ugh..speaking of that, I would like a mod to get rid of the weather caster's constant spam. The only telly channel sims can watch to gain science interest is the weather, and the guy is constantly spouting off stupid crap. For some reason the game thinks I HAVE to know what he's saying. I DON'T CARE. It's not funny and is just constant and repetitive.

A mod that reworks how monetary inheritance works. For example, you can choose who will inherit and how much (instead of random sum showing up from nowhere). Also maybe adding inheritance/insurance claim not only to old age but to other types of death as well.

Squinge, I think, has a mod that gives out insurance if you die for any reason.

@lientebollemeis, I can't help you with the weather station but Sophie-David's mod lets you customize the weather more. Bulbizarre's example is best one I can think of as an example; you can set up Strangetown or another desert hood to have mostly summer or even eternal summer. But it still rains a lot, way more than it should for a desert. The mod lets you place items down that increase the chances for certain types of weather effects. So that you can set up your desert hoods to get little to no rain, your mountain hoods to get heavy snow fall, your tropical hoods to have a monsoon season, etc.

Actually, I grew up in a desert, and for the last half of the summer there was a massive thunderstorm almost every day at 6 PM on the dot. That's what monsoon season does. There was just no precipitation at any other time of the year. If I were modding the weather for a desert, I would probably just want "no rain in Spring", "no snow in Winter", "No dormant fruit trees or frozen ponds", and a general elevation of outside temperatures in all seasons so that being outside for too long in the Summer caused heatstroke and sims didn't need coats in Winter. Also, elevated bills in the Summer to represent the cost of running the A/C all the time. Then you would just play with the normal seasons.

A mod that I would really like is changing the name of the game Rock Paper Scissors into Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock.
I don't think it's needed to change or add the animation (though that would be cool). Just changing the name in the menu would make me happy

@lientebollemis If I were you, I would go and change the name of the interaction myself, because it probably takes little to no effort doing that... Not that I have no experience and I might just be aone of a fool giving any sort of programming advice. Though I would go and learn to do that uncomplex task because I assume it would take minimal brain power to do the thing.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english
