Weather is a gameplay mechanic in Astroneer. While the amount of weather types is very limited, it still exists. There is:
- Storms - Large dust storms that fling debris that can injure the player.
- Wind - Gusts of air that can be monitored using Wind Turbines which conveniently also power bases.
- Time - While technically not a weather per say, as the game goes on, time will change from day to night, and night to day, and so on and so forth. The amount of light/heat in the area will affect the power generation of Solar Panels.
