I understand that most players do not enjoy the storms that were in Astroneer. These could be completely changed with a few implements into the game. The idea of a thunder storm was to be both useful and annoying to the player. You could either harness the electricity from a bolt of thunder, or die due to it. This is where the storm shield comes in. Its a type of generator, fuelled by the developers choice which emits a glowing shield across a set area. This can protect the player and is something else in order to grind towards. These could also be upgradable such as small, medium and large. The implementation of a new method of creating electricity would be to harness the thunder. Metal rods could be added to the game, these harness the electricity into an output. A good use of these is up high on a mountain where it is more likely to be struck. The storms can be both good and bad. They could also be a beautiful implement into the game adding dynamic lighting and fog. The types of storms and how to harness them can change on each planet. Like an acid storm on the Exotic based planets can be used to burn product and turn it into electricity. This also means you need to be better prepared for these environments. Thanks for reading!
