    i really like the idea of sand accumulating but i want to take it one step further why not also add sandgolems so sand becomes easily farmable also you got my vote

    I dont think there should be lighting in severe ones it makes no sense why it happens other than its cool because lightning do big brain coolness things

    Sounds great! One consideration for Mojang is the possibility of farming sand if the storms were to common.

    maybe if the player doesn't have armor on it will deal a slight amount of damage?

    Wirklich gute Idee es würde die Wüsten interessanter machen und man könnte auch dadurch Sandschichten hinzufügen wie im Schneebiom die Schneeschichten

    Instead of just lightning, the sandstorm should mess with exposed redstone systems because they're electrostaticly charged, causing them to fluctuate from on and off randomly

    That would be cool like being Mexican & Middle Eastern/Northern African experiencing those would make things more reaslistic

    I like the idea of sandstorms slowing the player's movement and reducing range of visibility, but I don't think it should do any damage. That seems like it would get annoying real quick, even if the damage was low.

    Husks should spawn more frequently in the storm and/or get some form of buff from it. Maybe instead of slowing down the player it gives the Husks a speed boost. Don't know which one I prefer.

    On a final note, sandstorms should leave a layer of sand on all solid blocks like snow. This sand layer can work just like snow and digging it up with a shovel will create an item (like a sand pile) that can be used to craft a sand block. This would make cleaning up after a sandstorm worth the effort.

    Or you could leave it to make your desert base look cool.

    It should also slow down the player (and mobs, etc).

     

    Even better, it would have a blowing direction and then either slow the player if it walks against it, or make it faster if they go in the same direction.

     

    Similar to how flowing water also affects speed. Or how sandstorms work in Terraria.

    so you're saying the sand will fly around? So what if the sand fell on you and suffocated you but it'd have the same rarity of getting struck by lightning? I think that it'd be cool, personally. also, if the sand falls like snow, it should have different layers, like snow.

    I'm guessing that sand layers could be picked up and than be crafted into sand blocks

    I think this is a great idea, however, I think it should only be activated when thunderstorms are happening. This will make them rare and feel substantial. Perhaps more husks could spawn during these events.

    This is a great idea to make the desert more alive! Sand layers would also be a great addition

    Well, that could be cool. However, what about having other natural occurences?

    I think its to extra I do not think Mojang will ever add Tornados, Sandstorms, or even Tsunami in The near future of Minecraft so I think the right thing to do os just to wait until we get info about this.

    If this is added, they need to add a soundtrack. Terraria pulled this off awesomely.
