Meteor craters look much worse from further away (and bad in general)

Here is how craters look as I begin to travel away from a base:

Travel a little bit further away, and the craters look like this:

These screenshots were taken at 2x scale at 1280x720 resolution at the default Medium graphics settings.

I'd also like to point out how immersion-breaking it is to see something like this:

A whole planet to hit, but the endless swarm of meteors hate me in particular (as seen from outer space).


Please let me know if you need anything from me regarding this bug.

Meteors are experimental sorry.

Whoops, I had no idea. I probably should have expected that, it's just that they've been around since I bought the game. I searched around but I couldn't find a list of all experimental mode features.


Anyway, if I drilled crater-sized holes around my base, I'd probably still see the above bug.

It is not only about meteors.


It is also about mining - your tiny mine entrance on the steep hillside is also similarly visible from the orbit.

Thank you very much for your consideration! I was surprised to see that my post was not forgotten.


I know that this particular bug report isn't very popular vote-wise, but I think it is connected with other popular bug reports. For example, I have heard that people are reluctant to make secret underground bases since the drilled voxel entry ways are usually visible from outer space (much like the voxel meteor craters mentioned in my bug report). Another example is this other, more popular feedback I gave about meteors about how they can be immersion-breaking in their current state.

I just hope that this issue doesn't get overlooked because the post only has 1 vote on top of my own. Thank you, again, for your time.
