No habitat, no rover/truck/spaceship and no cave near. The storm right next to your face, how do you survive?
Dig out a hole, then close the top. you can do this by holding alt with the terrain tool.
iDigitalTimes has a "'Astroneer' Beginner's Guide: How To Research, What To Build First And Other Tips." In the section at the bottom titled "Other Tips" they mention this as a potential way to survive a (sand) storm:
If you see a sandstorm on the horizon, and you’re far away from your base, dig a small shelter into the earth. Make sure there’s an area to the left or right of the door for you to duck into.
I'm sure there are other ways to ensure your survival that will become apparent as the game progresses beyond its current "early release" stage.
You should dig a hole in the ground and with a passage either left or right, never deep down (as the rocks can still get you). And make sure you don't stand in the opening of the "dugout".
- Dig a deep hole. Aim at about 45 degree and dig. Go in and wait.
- Enter a vehicle (shuttle, rover, etc)
- Enter habitat
- Go in an existing cave.
- Hide inside crashed spacecraft hull.
