    As many of you may know, there are meteors that land on any chunk loaded area of the moon. Because of the many added mods to the pack, being a player placed block is not enough to stop the meteors. After testing this for a while I realized only explosive proof blocks can withstand the meteors. This applies a large restriction on the amount of building materials on roofing and a small amount of lag due to items from blown up areas.

    I propose this question, as a community, would you like to keep the meteors falling while it is still very viable to gain the meteoric iron from sieving moon stone?

    Meteors should not be able to break through player made blocks. At least not from my expirience. I have had dozens land on my base, but not destruction. Could also be that the square you start in protects blocks, or just is a part from another world inserted with world edit.

    No, Galacticraft has only basic minecraft blocks protected from meteors. Blocks such as stone, wood, and normal glass are safe. Although when you try to build a bit nicer such as quite clear glass or even cobble, they will break. In the end being forced on the moon is restricting our building materials with meteors

    hmmm it could be that protection prevents meteors from doing damage to the environment, and there has been some weird stuff where players don't get their places protected properly when they start. I don't know if you are afflitced but it could be a possibility. (also this can easily be fixed). I can check next time you are on.

    As slind said. There is no way we can do this. But i have been looking into some forcefield mods to make it more interesting.

    I hope that forcefield mod addition is coming along. I lost a diamond chopper, dirt, saplings and LOTS of wood in storage barrels when it took a direct hit. :(
