    Do storms still trigger lightning flashes? In the wiki it is said that "During a storm, lightning flashes in the background." They have this screenshot too:


    But I haven't noticed any lightning occurring during storms in my playtest.

    I look around the weather files and I found this on
    "lightningFrequency" : 0
    I thought this is the parameter that controls the lightning appearing in background, but it turns out or doesn't have that parameter at all. In fact, every .weather files that have "lightningFrequency" has 0 value to it.

    I tried setting up "lightningFrequency" : 20 for, but nothing happens.

    So... does a setting that controls lightning still exist in Starbound 1.2? If they no longer exist, where can I find the example of it working?

    Did you try setting the value to something ridiculously high to make sure you weren't just unlucky?

    Yup. Tried these
    "lightningFrequency" : 200000
    "lightningFrequency" : 20.00
    "lightningFrequency" : 0.75
    "lightningFrequency" : 1.00
    "lightningFrequency" : -2000.00
    "lightningFrequency" : -20
    Nothing seems to work. Tried hovering around in the sky too to make sure I didn't miss anything. Still no lick, unfortunately.
