My name is Charlie and I have been playing Astroneer for just over 15 hours now.
I would like to make a modest suggestion for a possible feature in the game. It seems unlikely that this would become a priority, but I thought it was an interesting idea and it does not seem like it appears anywhere in this sub, however I may not be searching very well.
Anyways, my suggestion is just to add persistence to the debris in Storms. In this way, the rocks may begin to accumulate in predictable ways, for example on what geologists might call the "lee" side of a given slope (diagram here), and not dissimilar to how sand dunes form and migrate. Debris may also begin to fill in holes and caves and the like. This may introduce some challenges as far as interacting with piles of debris and such, as well as who knows what else, and I make my suggestion notwithstanding those difficulties.
The idea was a somewhat natural progression for me given my bachelor's in Earth Science/Geology and experiences thinking about how sediment moves around landscapes - as trite as that sounds - and so I just wanted to throw it out there.
Thank you for your time in reading this, and in any consideration that you happen give to this unusual idea!
All the best,
