Please add a "Remove Lightning Damage" Option

My first lightning strike experience on the new update was literally on me, while i was about to board my newly constructed welding ship. I almost died and lost my welding ship cause it destroyed many of the thrusters with me.

I want to experience the new weather system. I like to hear and sometimes see that lightning effects. However since there is not a real damage detection, nor an easy repair system, this random structs are extremely frustrating. There is even not an option to remove them. You need to remove the whole weather system...

Yeah, please give us the setting. I loved the idea of random weathers but the lightning struck me in my first thunderstorm and deleted my inventory. I like to have lightnings/thunders but I don't like the damage.

Now, I have to remove weathers unless there's a mod to solve my problem or until it's fixed.

I agree that this is an option we need.

I want to be clear though its not a feature I likely would use. But someone like the youtuber kanajashi would need it. He is actively building a cosmetic city and the constant pasive damage caused by lightning would be a problem if I was doing that, and I hate turning off block destruction for something like this as it feels like a comp out.

My character was struck by lightning 4 times in 10 minutes, and did huge amounts to damage to my heavy armor base (as seen in the picture below).

"Safe" environment setting should not cause this kind of damage.

I also thought about that. But people may want separate settings for meteors and lightning. So changing name of "environment safety" to "meteor storm frequency" may be better. Lightning should have a similar setting system.

Lighting damage would be fine, provided you had some control on how often lightning strikes, and where it strikes. Right now it can just ignore decoys and go straight for the player, which is pretty awful. In addition to this, the toxic alien fog that comes inside buildings and ships is quite a problem too. Instead of just lightning damage, I think all weather related damage should be turned off by default when the environment setting is at "safe".

Not funny coming back to bases and ships that are destroyed. Give us the option to turn damage off please or at least a mechanic to avoid it.

Lightning damage. On objects that are made of steel. Which conducts electricity. Like a lightning rod. Which was invented to prevent damage from lightning strikes to objects made from materials of lesser conductivity.
