    so i want to do a nice build on a moon BUT asteroids would reck it. so how do i either turn off asteroids or atleast protect my build from it?

    i have seen some command to protect tiles but that requires an ID that i have no idea how to get.

    The ID can be obtained by the /debug command. Of course, it means you can't mine or place anything, you would need to actually finish the base without it getting bombarded first.
    It's possible to mod moons to simply not have meteors, but that wouldn't help on moons that are already generated, and I haven't checked if my personal mod for it still works.

    isnt there just a command to turn off meteors permanently? or a buildable shielgenerator like in hylotl citys to use?

    There was also a mod to enable a shield generator, but again, not sure about the update status.

    build underground, or..

    (Underlined things are commands, do those.)

    First, do /admin. This should give you permission to use commands. (If it's multiplayer, you would probably need someone to give you permission to do that command.)

    Second, do /debug. This is important, because it will give you the dungeon ID, which every world has.

    Third, use /settileprotection. This is why the dungeon ID is important. You need this for the command to work.
    Example: If I wanted to make a world protected, and it's ID was 456764, I would put /settileprotection 456764 true

    If done right, this should protect the world/tiles.

    Try a Terraformer. Change the global biome to something like, say, Forest, leave the moon, and then change it back to Lunar with mods. This should disable meteors. (as well as add air?)

    If you get the less annoying weather mod, meteorites will not break blocks. Sand and snow will not get through walls and roofs when they are offscreen and will not block doors as well.

    You can use some brain blocks (obtain it on Ruin's world, but it takes a loong time to mine this brain matter) to protect your base from meteors. Looks like this blocks are so resilient - meteors cant destroy it at all

    Wire it to a switch, then turn it off and on a few times to make sure it works right. It will protect all player-placed blocks while active.
