    I have no idea what this means however I can pull apart your post. #1 Most of the people who go out of their way to a forum is to b¡ch and moan.... this is not a fact just your opinion. As a matter of fact on this forum, the non-bich posts far outweigh the bich posts #2 im sure I speak for the 87.36% of the community.... Again, this number is not based on any facts and was just pulled out of something or somewhere. This is Trumpian #3 in a large room of sh¡tposts.... again, not based in fact. Posts that state the truth are difficult for anyone but fanbois to classify as sh!tposts #4 who probrobly dont even know the first thing about basic software and design.... again, if you spent more than 10 minutes reading more than one thread you would see that this is, once again, just your opinion and it is not based on any facts what-so-ever #5 All GOOD games have ups and downs.... not true at all. There are many games that improve over time, not get worse, not create more bugs, not take two steps backwards to gain one step forward. There are some games that only improve without having to take any steps backwards. Many people here can provide you a list #6 Trust me, soon enough, they'll all eat their words.... Dood, I've been waiting since December 2016 to enjoy that meal! I would be more than happy to eat my words but wouldn't the splitter have to work first? Or the terrain analyzer? Just to name two legacy bugs. Just two. I've got more than 1,500 hours into the game. I love the game, obviously. I love the devs and the entire team. I can however call out BS or make suggestions, provide facts etc. without hating anyone. For example just because I hate legacy bugs does not mean I hate anyone at SES. They are not mutually exclusive. It is not a zero sum game to me like it apparently is to you. Well, that is my opinion anyway.

    I'm playing on a puter. I've been playing the same save game (500 hours +/-) since the game's release back in February. I'm getting about 40 FPS on my home base and I have thousands upon thousands upon thousands of items: resources (800+), storage(500+), research pods(786), gasses (300+), 500+ in scrap, literally thousands of items at my home base and I've not crashed and burned once. Through multiple updates. If your puter is halfway decent I'd say you may want to fire the game back up again. You may be pleased with all the progress that has been made If however your on another platform, I have no idea

    I appreciate the feedback. It was shocking to see, to be honest. My point was why not add one more thing that people have been clamouring for? I mean your 80% of the way to a garage which has been asked for, for well over a year if not longer. But you decided not to, instead a beach ball? The goal could have been made just larger, solid walls and a couple of additional items and, walla! Another item that has been begged for, forever, would have been completed and the suggestions and ideas forum would have been used. But we have sphere's to mess around with. We have three of them. A fourth will do exactly? A fourth adds? Also, I did state that 10 year olds are going to need shiny things to keep them happy. Just curious why a couple of new suits and visors was not enough eye candy for them? Plus they are getting horns soon in the wanderer update. Sorry, if it were me, and my team had some 'free' time to add something, a soccer game (in a space exploration game), whose customer request for said soccer; is less than 1% of 1%, I would have opted to add something that people have been requesting. Yes, another thing! Why would there be a limit in supplying the customer base another one of their requests? I'm not following that line of logic, sorry.

    Why? Just why? There was obviously time to do "something" and this, this is what we get? Ok, ok I get it.....there are 10 and 12 year olds that play this game. And yes, from time to time those same children should have something shiny dangled in front of their faces. I get it, they are all about the shiny things that add to the surface but not the core game. Like for example, vehicle horns. Or more and more suits/visors etc. You know, just played out eye candy. But why not give us something that we've been asking for, for months if not years..... a vehicle garage (as just one simple example).....just to name one of oh so many things that have been begged for, for years now. Why were so many resources wasted on something so frivioulus? What part of exploration does this nonsense fall under? Again, I only call it nonsense in that the community has been begging for a very long time now for very simple improvements that could have easily been accomplished in the time it took to build this moronic recreational sphere and idiotic recreational canopy. Not one person thought to just take a look at the things the community has been asking for? This was a PERFECT example of a time when SES could have for once, looked at the suggestions and ideas thread and just picked one? Something the community wants? Or they did and thought all of those things are BS, let's give the community want they don't want a childish soccer game? Really? I'm sure that there are a dozen things that could have been made rather than this waste of time and effort, that would have checked off an item the community has been asking for. Seriously in the amount of time it took to construct this foolishness, a vehicle garage could not have been constructed? You give us flood lights, new platforms and there was just no way to tie all of that into a vehicle garage? Your like 2/3rds of the way there yet........we get a beach ball? This is going to be a blast to play in SP! Why for the love of Astroneer just why????????????????????????

    Research Pods

    @CopperyMarrow15 GENIUS! I've not found a new one in the last couple hundred hours of play so I've got nutin new to report. However, you have taken this to another level my friend! This is awesome! I wish someone at SES would give us a post with all the information about each pod, plant, seeds, research etc. Great work with the style, locations, pics it is all just perfect!
