you can unpack the addon file, go to the bottom of scripts/fn_processinitialsetup.sqf and comment out the last line that starts the weather module, at least until i can put out the next version.
Is it the color shading? or you just dont like the dynamic weather?

Dynamic Weather is a good feature but none of built-in weather models feature heavy overcasts and rain. I enjoy playing ARMA in that kind of weather because it feels much more atmospheric for me.
I don't think there's any point in making RUBE toggle-able but it would be nice if you could move RUBE initialization into missions init script, it shouldn't be hard I think, that way it would be possible to disable it without having to unpack the addon.
it'll be an option on setup
If you are interested - I have at hand, in my private "stock" some tiny addon called Simply Weather Dynamizer. Including userconfig, where you can set weather tendencies and weather dynamics. This is test version, so proper functioning is not guaranteed, still this may be a handy replacer for infinitely more advanced and sophisticated RUBE's great module, if someone just want to have simply calculated, but reasonable semi-randomized, dynamic weather. There is no any special effects as post processing, particles and such. Just continous juggling with four basic weather settings: overcast, rain, fog and wind.
So, if you want to have rainy and generally heavy overcast, then before Arma launch raise overcast and rain settings in userconfig init values, eg to 10 or so and play with this addon. SWD will, maybe after some delay, start to "stir" in the weather.

I played a match on Utes today with the latest version for the first time and it is quite nice. I didn't get to use any arty yet, though, because the AI was too slow to buy any and I won the match before the gunner got to his Grad.
Also, fuck Apaches, BAF always spams them to hell even if I set air to x0.25.
I did notice a few bugs though.
1) You can load an MG into a truck while using it, which teleports you into the corner of the map.
2) Support point modifier applies to "Release Group" as well, which makes it easy to exploit the game, ordering infantry squads for 500 points and releasing them for 3500+ points.
I guess #1 is a bug although you can just NOT choose to load a static weapon when you are sitting in it
#2 was done knowing full well it could be an exploit. But isn't people asking for a way of raising their awards an exploit already? It's a single player game so if people want to make it insanely easy for themselves I'm not going to spend a lot of effort trying to stop them.
Thanks for the feedback man
Not a big deal but something that I thought you might want to fix.
I suppose that it's not a big deal but I'll be playing x1 support from now on.
I was also thinking about something. Since you're technically making a mod, would it be possible for you to use a userconfig, like many other mods do?
That would let the player set their default match settings to anything they enjoy, making starting a new match much quicker process.
That would also let you save space on that starting menu, since several of those options are something you rarely change, like starting time, amount of support points and whenever you start with an HQ, and you can move those options into the userconfig.
Funny I was thinking about using a user config. Would love to have some of that stuff figured out in there. Good idea and I'll start looking into it. Also see if I can have the faction choices set up in there as well. I use all the supported factions on each play through and clicking all those buttons even gets me
I'll also remove the multiplier from releasing troops and look at adjusting the actions on the static weapons.
