Possible bug or I just never saw it before?

In my recent game I had lightning strike the base I was in.  

 I did not take any damage, but all of my batteries were drained and the base lost power.

Is this new or have I just never seen it before?

If it is new can we get a lightning rod :)

Hey - someone else recently pointed that out.  The strike is supposed to drain 1000 power from a hit base's power supply.  A single battery holds 750, so 2 full batteries should be enough to withstand a single strike.  I'll make sure to test this out some more.

I think a lightning rod is would def be a good idea though, especially for larger bases.

Thanks for the information.

I am not sure how many batteries were drained, but I think it was more then 2.

I had 6, but I am not sure how many were drained  before the strike so it was hard to tell.

Keep up the good work.

I confirmed last night that there was definitely a bug causing ALL the batteries to get drained by a single lightning strike.  Fixed the problem, and will have an update coming out later this evening with a bunch of fixes to issues that had been reported over the past week.

Cheers!

good job developer that could have caused a lot of frustration for me and my four very useful batteries.

The update (0.46.1) is now out on itch.io and Steam that should fix both a crash-bug with lightning strikes, and the issue where they were draining all a base's batteries.

Thanks for the update!
