Lightning causing too much damage

Richard Reis shared this feedback 2 months ago

I think lightning is currently way too devastating.

It is great to look at and I love the weather features, but lightning keeps destroying way too much on grids. I like that it might be attracted by decoys. But honestly, does it have to blow up entire chunks of large grid armor blocks?

They literally are made of steel plates so they should act like an electric conductor, maybe take slight burn marks or something instead of blowing up completely. It would be more realistic and it would make it possible to enjoy the weather much more. Lots of people have the entire weather disabled because of that and that is really a pity! Or maybe there could be an option to disable the lightning itself?

Thank you so much in advance!

I've never knew that decoys could attract lighting. That said, maybe they could add a 'lightning-rod' block that would attract and absorb lightning, converting it into a power source.
