Very nice script, some nice effects.

However, you said you added visible thunderbolts but I never saw them. I could hear the thunder and see a flash on the ground but couldn't see any bolts. Is that the thunderbolts or have I missed something.

The thunderbolts last for a quite short fraction of second, and they are generated in any direction so in the demo storm (3 mins only of storm) you may notice few of them (ony those in your field of view). Play it again and probably you will see some of them.

EDIT:
You may "tweak" mando_storm.sqf to see them changing  _ang = random 360; by _ang = 0; and then keep looking to the North.

I've seen the thunderbolts but they appear without any sound. Where is that typical sharp & scary thunderbolt sound?
Good script but wind and thundersounds need more subtility and variation imo.

Dont you hear the sounds?  :blink: Wind and thunderbolt sounds are there, not quite loudly but at least clearly audible. You have a lightning and less than 2 secs after it the sound. From time to time you should notice also strong wind.

For some reason the samples of these sounds sound metalic for me  ??? And the non-metalic versions are 2 sterlings each  :P

I've had a look to this very interesting idea...

The concept is very good but there is a thing which worries me: the script itself looks a bit resource demanding, isn't?

Isnt at all, quite the opposite. In every loop it has a sleep of 10~25 seconds.
