    I love rainstorms so much, the sound is the best. Will we get a metal roof sound in metal bases? Maybe an in-car noise in a small vessel?

    Oh YES this!
    I want me some rain, specially acid and/or radioactive one on some dirty & murky planets - but without ANY real drop in performance... I must say that fog/mist in Empyrion was always GREAT for me and I didn't had any problem with it!
    I'm not familiar know good or bad is 'weather' in good Unity games for hardware & system.

    BTW Devs & other planet builders - don't make this weather thing now annoying on all planets, lets have less (randomness) on standard Temperate planets - and more on some new special 'jungle', 'mining', 'devastated',... and etc. planets. This game also needs boring planets :D

    What is this sorcery? Clouds? Water falling from the skies? Completely unrealistic. I'm very disappointed with you, Eleon. Very, very disappointed. First is the oxygenation system (completely useless, why would a fictional being need to breathe?) then the fact I need to redesign all my ships or I'll freeze to death. In space. There is no water in space, silly developers, how could one freeze with no water! We all know that by now. The only thing you're getting right in this "update" is the weapon kits. That was a good feature, the rest is garbage. Shame on you.

    Happy April Fool's day! :D I'm going to love roleplaying as a lazy survivor enjoying the rain falling while I sip some tea. From my base/cockpit. Oh, add tea please!

    Bump up the lightning 500% and you'll have an Arizona monsoon simulator. And may need to increase rainfall an inch an hour or so.

    One of my favorite times in Minecraft (GF set the game up, she used texture packs and renders..had realistic clouds, water and weather), was starting out the window of our house/base when it was raining outside and listening to the sound. It was especially serene when the piano music was turned on.

    I feel as if the weather in Empyrion will do the same :)

    Thank you devs, this is a pretty fun non-April Fools day implementation!
