Landers should throw up dust
New, WishlistPublic


When using the free camera to look at a lander descending under rockets, no dust is thrown up even as the lander approaches the obviously dusty surface.

I know the atmosphere is thin, but the dust is very fine and should be disturbed. This would increase immersion, particularly if it affected cameras etc.

Would be a cool effect, low priority.

I don't think it should be "low priority" as it would affect not only cameras but also solar panels that are a key module of the rover.

i guess this topic would be great to merge with the Dust: strorms and devils one (0000045)
