Been occasionally getting a weird bug while working on my new base. Out of the blue I start taking damage from a sandstorm, but there is no sandstorm happening.
This happens both outside, and inside with a full shelter buff. It will also continue to damage me if I move from outside to inside with a full shelter buff while it’s happening.
If I’m quick to go into the start menu and put on my mask, it’ll stop. I’ve died at least twice from it now however.
One time I think it killed me when I was offline. Our server settings take players out of the world when offline however, not sleeping, so I don’t think that should happen. All the signs of a recent death were there when I logged in tho.
So far it’s only happened at my base, which is in an area that’s kind of buggy, and already has weird weather patterns and such…
It’s in the upper right corner of j3 on the edge of the desert and noob river. My house is in the corner against the wall. It rains on my house frequently, but walking a few feet away from the front door will reveal a clear sky. The green wall is also visible against the wall in the back. I also have a couple cliff sides that move or change their surface texture when I walk around.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- I haven’t figured out how to reliably trigger it yet. Just seems to happen once in awhile. Possibly when the game is doing a sandstorm probability check…?
