This object is a recolored smart thermostat and requires the Seasons EP. Tested up to 1.77.131

Thanks to Dr. June and a breakthrough in climate control technology, EcoDisc introduces the 52X Mini Weather Controller! Now any sim can control the weather in the palm of their hands (and I don't mean a TV remote!). Place the EcoDisc 52X on a wall, and you'll unlock these air-bending skills in your home:
  • Change Seasons
  • Change Seasonal Forecast
  • Trigger a specific temperature wind to blow through
  • Change weather conditions and trigger weather events like Monsoons, Sunsnow and Sunshowers

The EcoDisc 52X Mini Weather Controller is wind, fire, earth & water resistant, and provides full elemental manipulation without upgrades.

Update Notes

v3 (2021-07-22)
  • Tested for patch 1.77.131
  • Zipped with different method to prevent macOS hidden files that may cause issues for Windows players
  • Added a few Chinese translations thanks to GreenOnionC
  • Fixed missing strings in all languages
v2 (2021-04-25)

All interactions and loot are custom therefore any mods that alter the original controller interactions will not apply to this mod.

I believe holidays are only affected when changing the Season.

Thank you! That mod was my main inspiration to get into modding cause I couldn't find it anymore!

This sounds like a great idea!

Absolutely! and it only triggers a weather event so the wind should not affect the overall weather forecast.

AFAIK there isn't an official fog weather type. I believe some of the fog effects in worlds like Del Sol are just "cloudy" effects from that world.
