it keeps telling me to set posX as a variable. I cant seem to get around that.

Learn Java and how minecraft works. Please.

The lightning has to be somewhere so the coordinates are necessary.

I. Stellarium for Minecraft: Configurable Universe for Minecraft! (WIP)

II. Stellar Sky, Better Star Rendering&Sky Utility mod, had separated from Stellarium.

1. use code tags

2. so. you are triing to spawn a lightning at the position 0,0,0 .. what are you expecting


Also, minecraft 1.8 uses




to spawn a lightning bolt.
