Ever find yourself feeling like Cyberpunk 2077’s vanilla weather system needs a bit of mixing up? Tired of city centre sandstorms and regular rain showers out in the desert climes of The Badlands?

Well, a new mod by Halliphax2, simply called "Weather Randomiser'', might provide the cosmic climate corrections you’re looking for, by making Cyberpunk’s weather match the worldspace a bit better while also ensuring effects are a little more varied.

According to Halliphax2, the mod accomplishes this by increasing the number of weather-to-weather transitions, which the game’s weather system depends on, from 18 to 35, allowing for more variety.

Cyberpunk 2077 Mod Spices Up Weather

Inspired by the work of two other mods, Knochey’s “Enhanced Weather V2” and rmk1234’s “Weather Probability Rebalance”, Halliphax2’s mod provides a number of in-game consequences, some of which you can observe in the time-lapse video below.

Some of the most prominent of these changes involve the game’s sandstorms, which will now occur often out in the desert; happening once a day or every couple of days, but then be much rarer in the city itself.

Toxic rain, another of the game’s more aesthetically impressive weather types, will be limited to occurring roughly twice a week and, as with sandstorms, won’t last for as long as more common weather types.

As for these common weather types, regular sun and rain will occur most often and last the longest, while “fog, pollution, and all three cloudy weather types are much more common and fairly cyclical with each other.”

If the randomness of Halliphax2’s mod proves frustrating to you, you can always try “Holocall Weather - Call NPCs to change weather”, a mod uploaded by Janecio14 that gives you a bit more control over things by making calls to certain in-game NPCs immediately trigger specific weather types.

Both mods are available to install manually or using a mod manager.
