This is kind of a mish-mash of several topics and replies to other topics in the forum, so I thougnt "Hey. Why not make a thread out of it?" and here we are. :)

Basically, this would allow you to apply weather effects to your level. It could have a category in Global Lighting, and the weather effects could consist of:

--Set Rain Color
--Set Rain Intensity
--Toggle Thunder and Lightning
--Set Snow Color
--Set Snow Intensity
--Set Hail Color
--Set Hail Intensity
--All details depend on global lighting

Then you could have a part to tweak clouds:

Set Cloud Density
Set Cloud Color
Cloud Shadow Amount

And, as another topic has suggested, another category for wind:

Set Wind Direction
--(x/y/z axis)
Set Wind Strength
Set Wind Particles
Set Particle Amount
--Sliding scale
Set Particle Color

And maybe something for how it affects everything:

Affects objects?
Require tag?
Affects player?
--Toggle (Big)
--Toggle (Small)

I have seen the LBP3 trailer countless of times and I see rain, wind, etc. I'm sure that they already have implemented weather effects into the game. We saw some in LBP Vita, I'm sure they wont take a step back in that department.
