First off, as this is my first post I just wanted to say how much I enjoy this game. I've never felt the need to join a forum and get involved with a gaming community before this so kudos on a great game System Era. That said I have suggestion for the GUI. While the red around the screen to show damage works, it is a bit basic. That being said, I don't think a health bar is necessary. My idea would be to keep the red but add an AI to the spacesuits that would give you pertinent information without breaking the immersion of the world. So something like lines of text appearing in the top right corner to inform the player of status updates. For example when you take any physical damage a message would pop up saying something like: "Suit Rupture Detected!..." "Source: Impact..." "Initiating repairs...." "Repairs complete" for collisions with debris and impalement from plants OR "Suit Integrity Compromised!" "Source: Acidic Damage..." "Enacting Countermeasures..." "Suit Integrity Stabilized" For acid gas attacks from plants As a bonus this would shed some light on how your Astroneer regens health. Also It could be used as a advanced warning mechanism too. Other neat messages could be: "Weather Anomaly Approaching!" for storms "Oxygen Running Low" for... well oxygen running low... you get the idea. Finally keeping with the lighthearted tone of them game I think it could cute for the messages to have a little personality. Welcoming messages , random encouragement, and maybe tips or space facts. Down the line maybe through in some voice acting, who knows. Just an idea, thanks for reading!
