Expedition: Days 38 and 39

Weather works now. I spent day 38 designing how to handle it and day 39 coding.

It works based on this table:

I decided to go for a simple state transition model instead of going completely atmospheric because… I think it will provide a “good enough” simulation! That doesn’t mean there aren’t some transitions tied to the world and expedition status (like terrain and temperature), but for the most, this table rules the transitions.

I think it works pretty ok (in conjunction with the storms, which I love).
