  1. This is my 2nd base on Planet 1 on Astroneer Pod 1 (1st save), tried practically every tip and trick laid out for creating a perfectly flat surface but no go (lower ground soil color appeared to be angled at a gradient and not flat when digging into the ground? But I digress). I just went with the base building anyway with a new Habitat.I extended max 6 "branches" from the Habitat, and on 3rd extension from the last "branch" i kept 2 Copper on the slots while I went to harvest for more Resins. I came back and just casually popped off the Copper and slotted in 2 Resins. I noticed I left one of the Copper right next to the undeveloped base extension, and when the Platform was generated the Copper sunk into the ground right under the Platform and started making scratching noises from the hitbox collision (or whatever you call it). In my mild "panic" I started digging around where the Copper fell through the ground, but it eventually started popping out from under the white struts under the Platform. I flattened the ground I dug and dug another hole to let the Copper pop out on its own. Done. I took the Copper and flattened the ground around the Platform before proceeding to build a Fuel Condenser on it. I did, but then noticed that power wasn't being transferred from my 5 Batteries from around the base. That's when I notice the connection cable between the Fuel Condenser platform and the adjoining "extension" is not there. And try as I might, I could only extend and retract the rotating "connector" facing our view-point, but not the permanent one facing the platform.

    Fuel Condenser not drawing power

    Well, I did have the extension built for some time before the platform and fuel condenser was constructed. Would keep that in-mind when I test it out in the next base. Nope, this is the only fuel condenser platform on this base / power network.
  3. Found a potential glitch / bug: 2nd base on the 2nd landing, 1st planet on my first save-game, base is built hexagonal in shape from a single Habitat, with first ring of extensions loaded with 6x Tier-2 batteries, second and third ring loaded with Tier-2 solar panels (12 in-total). Each "base arm" is about 3 or 4 extensions long from the central Habitat before a platform is built and a base structure is constructed on it. I've no problems with power transfer between structures (vehicle bays, 3d-printer, smelter, research) being supplied with power from either the batteries, solar panels or the wind-farm on one of the base arms except this particular one. I seem to have stumbled on a glitch with one of the base arms constructed with a fuel condenser, it does not draw power from any power-source except one which is attached to its side slots. And since there is no way to deconstruct the base structure or extension, it cannot be redone and so my base plans are screwed-up. I've also tested building base extensions around the fuel condenser structure and attach empty batteries, they seem to charge and discharge power from the central solar panels just fine. It just seems to skip the fuel condenser platform no matter what.
