First thing, Its annoying to dig a hole when a rock storm comes your way. After it passes it's annoying to keep filling in holes because they're usually right in the middle of where you are walking and it just takes time out of the day. I think it would make a great addition. Storm moves in you pull it out of your backpack and BAM tiny little shelter from the storm. It could have a limited amount of oxygen so every time you head back to base camp you can just top it off again, or even the same thing with power. if you've noway to get any power at the moment you can pull it out and get a little burst of power until you head back to base. I usually am away from base camp for 5 or 6 nights at a time collecting resources and making holes to stick said resources in before heading back to base and lugging everything with me. Not a fan of taking the vehicles with me everywhere cause i feel like you miss out on the scenery. Back on topic, I know I would personally love it and im not too sure about others. Aside from that fantastic work, you've come a long way since i bought the early access back in December of 16 and I look forward to the official release date! P.S. I would also like for storms to be able to destroy tethers(makes the survival aspect more appealing to me at least). Something similar to the picture only smaller.
sry if it has been posted or suggested already. Base protection: the storm is still something. yes the astroneer can hide inside the habitat, but what if you are able to build some sort of shield emitter, which keeps the storm from hitting the base or at least you. this could be for example a requirement, when you explore the radiated world to have. a storm is currently the only thing that can kick you out of your suit or the debris he is throwing at you. Railroad: the more you explore, the greater the distances become. even when you build a 2nd, 3rd etc. base. sometimes some sort of more efficient transport system would come handy. you have your base, you build a railroad to a mountain or entry point to some caves and drive multiple times back and forth just to carry the resources to your base. what do you think of such an idea?
So after I died from a sandstorm I decided to make a large dome over my pod so I do not get hit my debris. Once I got one wall up and a storm came the debris still came through the wall. Like it was not even there at all. I do not know if you can craft structures I just started. But I hope that either taraformed bases can block the debris from hitting you in the future. When you go undergroup it blocks it so I did not know why my dome gave no protection.
