Ideas for the Weather System

Recommended Posts

So I know there are plans for reimplementing the storm system, and I have a few ideas for it. The main point is that each planet has different weather, and will affect the player differently on each planet.

 

Terran: Nothing. Starter planet won't have much in the way of storms.

 

Barren: Meteor Showers. Basically, a meteor storm will send down meteor, which on impact would kill the player instantly, or if it hits a base item, it will damage it and turn it into the debris* form of it. Or maybe a junk shower where it rains scrap.

 

Arid: This would be the iconic storm we all know and love. 

 

Exotic: This would be an electric storm, and would discharge lightning, which, if it hits a power system, would drain all the power from that system (batteries) and disable any device it hits directly. Same for Novus

 

Tundra: Blizzards. Basically, player movement is slowed, all power usage is increased, and all machines work slower.

 

Radiated: Here, there are big superstorms, combining Arid's and Exotic's storms, going for longer and more dangerous.

 

*This is where a repairing tool that uses scrap to repair debris would come in handy.
