I have been playing FTB for a while now and for some reason I am getting random lightning strikes occurring. There is no storm and the affect does not change when I disable the weather.

I have read up on it and apparently it is due to Thaumcraft and having too much flux in one area (I haven't started on thaumcraft as of yet). I noticed that it said the flux could be reduced by planting silver wood trees. I did this (planted at least 7) and they all grew but unfortunately the lightning is still occurring.

Is this a bug because it is becoming really destructive and laggy with multiple chunks loaded at the same time in the nether and due to quarries. How can I fix this? I have turned off fire spread but I just want to know how to stop the lightning.

Also now that I have planted all these silvewood trees, creepy voices are being played (hopefully through the game). Is this normal?


I figured it out and it had nothing to do with thaumcraft. I have been breeding bees and have recently stumbled upon the excited branch of bees. I remove them from the apiary and the lightning stopped instantly. Apparently it is an affect of these bees to cause lightning strikes.

    you can breed that trait out of them or use the extra bees machines to remove it – ratchet freak Oct 23 '13 at 10:39
