Weather Damage and biodome repair bots.

Recommended Posts

So I have heard the devs plan on making interior building where you can connect smelters ect. That would make dangerous weather way less frightening. I would love to see some of the more exotic planets have weather that gives that "Holy crap" feeling back. Like lightning storms, radiation storms, acid rain, hail storms, heat waves from solar flares that do damage over time. These storms would also damage some of your structures so you would need to spend a small amount of resources fixing some of the damage. An alternative could be to research a hovering drone/repair bot that could follow you on your resource collection runs. You could fill the drone up with things resources it needs to repair or if you are desperate for an extra slot he could hold single slot resources. I know ppl asked for extra bag slots but i think this would work for them as well. Another thing I think would be cool is the ability to see the storm from the skylight of your indoor base. See the picture below.

Biodomes could defiantly come in handy in a future update. They could provide food and water if that's ever going to be implemented. Players could collect and grow exotic plants to use for food or just toss unwanted organic resource  into a generator to give a little extra power to the base.

 

TL:DR

Would love to see more dangerous storms

indoor base

Useful drones

exotic agriculture

I actually came up with a drone idea I called the P.O.D, or, Personal Overhead Drone, maybe these features could be implemented onto the design!? :D

Nice I have been modeling and coding drones for fun. This is one of my little repair bot projects.

Wow! Very well done! Do you think you could try and make a 3D design for my robot sketch? For scale purposes it is about the same size as a beacon in Astroneer... :D

I just used the light data from a screenshot to render the model and the pasted it on top of the screenshots.

Good job, looks nice, but a little bit too childish for me.

Well everyone has their own opinions :) I personally think it fits the theme of Astroneers really well :D

The design can be anything really. I just think the concept would work well with the game.

Yep, you're right. By the way, take a look. I wish Astroneer looked like on eariler videos:

Lol. Quotes quotes quotes.... well anyways, it looks perfect for astroneers like it's part of some new update. Can't wait to see protective domes hopefully. Increase the power capacity of the drone, and when they run out, they fall into your backpack. They should also have an option to project a hologram of where you are on the planet, so you can see your depth in a planet's caves and know how to get back home.

I am all for that hologram idea! :D

Christ, Ferocious, is modeling your job or something? (3D modeling obviously, before someone twists my words) Those are some damn good images.

Anyways, I think little drones or w/e could be interesting. Maybe not ones with pixellated cat faces... but maybe something more like that P.O.D. Would also be interesting to have them planet-specific, like having one like the P.O.D. for Barren, but on planets with significant atmospheres, have little helicopters.

Maybe even something like the robot vacuums from Passengers as Organic collectors/farmers? Image for reference, not the best image but the first one I could find on Google

Oh yeah the pixel cat was just to show some of my old work. Thanks for the complement, I would love for it to be my job  but atm its just a creative hobby of mine that occasionally makes me some money.  I have a lot of free time so I am just having some fun with ideas for a game I really enjoy.
