After looking around a bit I realised that there were no thuder storms.....and the storm allready programed into VX was just sideways rain......so I made one myself.This tutorial is set up in to easy one by one steps just to make it that little bit easier.1.Where theres thunder there is rain.....
To begin create a new event and make it "parralell process" and "Below Character" then place a Strom power 9...but this totaly optional because you dont acctually need the rain for the thunder to work. To add a storm just go to tab 2 in you events menu and it is under "picture and weather". once you are in there you just choose what weather you want.....preferably Rain or Storm.....and set its power to what ever you want (anything above 5 in recomended by me)

Now create a new event with the same properties as the rain (parralell and Below Character) This one is for the thunder.To begin with we are putting in the flash of the lightning. to do this you will need to go to Tab 2 and click on "Flash Screen". Now with this menu that pops up choose a colour to make you lightning (probably yellow or bright blue)...To make yellow turn you blue to 0 and red to 255 and green about 204...make sure you lower the strength a bit too so the colour is a tad transperent...... You will also need to untick the "wait for completion box and increase the time to about 90. ( this means the colour will appear and it will take 90 frame to dissapear)....once again you can fine tune your timing and colour.

This bit took me while........In this ste we are adding the monserouse clap of the thunder.......The SE's I chose to be my thunder were "Thunder 9" and "Thunder 10"....Make sure you put Thunder 10 first because that the Sharp strike of the thunder and Thunder 9 is the rumbling after math.....You can find the play SE under the 2nd tab under "Music and Sounds"......Duh

Now test you thunder out and see if you can see any bugs.......
hmmmm if you cant see or hear that then you are quiet weird.....to stop the constant yellow and blur of noise add a "wait" at the begining your event. I insetrted a 600 frame wait at the beginigng, therefor the thunder only occurs every 10 seconds....4.(optional)Shaking in your boots
You can also add a "shake Screen" for added effect.....To do this you will need to go to Tab 2 and find :"shake Screen under the Screen effects subtitle....just tweak the settings a bit to suite you likings.....
