    Shuttles - two launch buttons

    Last night I managed to build my first shuttle and take off. I noticed there's two launch buttons, tied to X and Z I believe. What are the differences between them?!
  2. I've got multiple devices at home, my primary gaming desktop runs the game great and I can stream it via Steam to other tablets and laptops. I have a new laptop, core i7-8650U with 16gb of ram. It unfortunately has integrated graphics, Intel HD 620, and the game is slow rendering wise even with all settings on low. Are INI file customizations still a thing? Are there additional tweaking options coming?
  3. Ok. I've logged 6+ hours today given it's the launch day and I wanted to share my feedback of 1.0 so far. I'm currently on my third new game, reason being, the previous two started to get wonky with the quicksand bug, both player and tractor falling through the floor. Overall progression forces you off world, which I like, as certain resources aren't available on the starting planet. The tractors are great for mining in caves, but clear the floor, flatten things out, and close holes or else you'll fall through and face a severely difficult task of getting the thing out. Power management is insanely important, especially when you leave the home planet. Currently on the moon and put my base somewhere where I only get 30 seconds or so of sunlight, have no batteries, so it's challenging to keep anything running without generators or wind. That's it for now, my fingers are achy, good night!

    .90 observations

    Placing a vehicle bay on the launch pad doesn't let you create rovers. Haven't researched shuttles yet, but hopefully they work. Placing a seat on a platform wreckage locks it in place, you can't recover it. Small rover doesn't have a vehicle identification beacon, not sure if it did before or not. Debris can be scrapped, but wreckage platforms and modules cannot. Satellites cannot be scrapped.

    Update 0.9.0 - July 6th 2018

    Wow, can't wait to jump in and explore. Abandoned spaceports and other structures are exactly what I've wanted, thank you so much!

    Xbox storms pixelated and smelter overwriting modules

    Yep, that is exactly what I saw, wasn't quite sure how to describe it.
  7. First off, thank you for the performance updates on Xbox; it's night and day. While playing tonight I noticed the storms are highly pixelated, they look like waves moving sideways; you can see the borders of the storms moving across the screen. The second issue I spotted was when using the smelter, a copper module was replaced by an aluminum but it failed to exit the top and go to an open spot. Instead it appeared on top of the existing node, still in the finished area. Both nodes were accessible so the items weren't lost. I tried taking screenshots but for some reason they didn't save.

    Update quirks

    All has been experienced in a new save, whenever there's an update I start from scratch.

    Update 0.6.5 - March 15th, 2018

    I cannot use a research module added to large rover, objects cannot be inserted. I posted a bug report.

    Update quirks

    I wanted to share some feedback based on a few hours of playing the latest update, namely to see if I'm the only one seeing these or not and to make sure they're reported. 1. Entering rovers, especially the large, is very difficult. I press and hold the e key and typically the terrain tool will open instead of entering the vehicle. It's tough finding the correct spot to enter. 2. I created the research module, placed it on to a large rover and then tried to research items, nothing would slot into the research module so it appears to not be working. 3. Research objects are being found floating randomly in caves, typically in groups. 4. The large rover disappears or flashes when turning your head away from the rover. The starting platform, where the small fabricator gets dropped does the same thing.

    Battery bug

    I think I found a bug related to batteries, happens with both small and large while generating power.

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    Come on, ride the train, hey, ride it
  14. Thanks so much to the team for this experimental test, I figured I'd share my feedback here for discussion sake. I love the concept of T.A.R., the ability to craft specific resources that you need in a pinch without having to venture out across long distances is a good option. This adds support for multiple play styles, as some people are builders while others are explorers. The canister mechanics work pretty well, except if you have them attached to your terrain tool and try to load them into the sediment refinery - they're not detected, so you have to go to your inventory, tool, then move them from there. Ideally, if the game detects you have them on your tool and move them to the refinery, by shift clicking it should put them back where it found them, instead of back to inventory. In regards to the hydrazine mechanics + canisters, I love it. It makes a lot of sense that you have to refine the raw material first + use a canister to store it, I wouldn't change anything there. The fuel condenser taking longer also makes sense, in all honesty, it was far too easy to generate a ton of fuel without much effort once the building was researched. I like how it now takes longer and requires containers. Lastly - power. I'm torn on the test implementation of power. Though I like being able to dig in an unlimited fashion, it just doesn't "feel" right to me. Anything that requires power, IE using a tool, should use power. That extends to the work light (though minimal), digging, filling, etc. My recommendation would be to change the usage across the board, depending on the action, requiring more or less power. Work light / digging / crafting - low power usage Filling in - moderate power usage Augment usage - high power usage The power regeneration should be left as it, just like a real power pack or battery. If you use it up, you need to find a source to recharge it.
  15. BUMP I have a new gaming machine, which runs the game great - but I don't want to be confined to my office to play. I can stream other games, No Man's Sky, Skyrim, etc. fine but when you try to move the camera around, it spins uncontrollably.
