My guess is, that you spawned some smoke type entity around the player randomly :)

Actually its clever use of the explosion entity. I divided the map into a grid, and each chunk has its own master explosion animation. Saves on processing power and keeps entity and particle count down.

You can find the mod for it at MoMods. The upcoming update is going to have the rain showcased above. As for you're suggestions, Ill be considering them for future updates.
