    Update 0.10.5 - November 14, 2018

    Eh, just wait I'd say. First 2/6/19 is no guarantee. I'd bet nothing on the game being released that date. I'd bet a lot there will be 'issues' that will arise between now and 2/6/19 that postpone the launch. Second the release will be riddled with bugs. Every update has been thus far and I have no reason to believe terrain 2.0 is a magic bullet. So it will be months and months before bugs are worked out. By that time it will be summer and there will be a sale at some point which will bring the price back down into the teens again. Or just wait until black friday 2019 and get it half price then. Third, I would not pay a full price increase for this game. No way, no how. If I did not already own the game I would highly consider buying the game in the future but there is no way in hell I'd pay $29.99 for it. They'd get my money but it would be on sale, not full (soon to be raised $10) price that's fer sure.

    The New Astroneer Suit....

    Not upset @Todd M just scratching my head...... Joe and the other fellow talked about the new Astroneer. I assumed it would be cool. I think it was Joe that said it was cool. I used it, not cool at all. It is extremely similar to the other three Astroneers (minus the best Astroneer.... Orange!) I was expecting a black one or a purple one or something beautiful or colorful or artistic or paisley or tie dye or futuristic but what I was given was just another same ole tired version of the other three Astroneers we already have and have had since 12/16....... yawn SES yawn Color me disappointed

    The New Astroneer Suit....

    be FUGLY! The way those two talked about the new suit in the video I thought it was going to be something really cool. It is as far from cool as one can get. There is absolutely nothing cool about that suit at all. It looks deformed. If it came with two left feet it would fit the helmet much better. Two left feet would justify the helmet. This reminds me very much of B**ch Stewie episode for those that watch Family Guy. I suppose it would have to be free as who in their right mind would pay for it? Can I sell that fugly suit? Can I gift it to someone that did not purchase early access? I'll never use that fugliest suit ever, who wants it? I selected the new Astroneer, landed, walked for about 15 seconds and will put it on the shelf until 2/6/19 (clears throat)..... or the next extended deadline....

    Where can I purchase a crate? Since I can't have a full release until February can I get a crate for Christmas? Where/who manufactured them? Wouldn't that company like to sell more? Why can't I purchase a crate or two?

    Hysterical! ? And the waiting continues.......... So will all those items that were "cut" be able to be put into the game now that the release is pushed back? Or will those things remain removed? I love that the only ones that matter are the developers and marketing only! We the customer? The customer is not in the equation? WOW! Where you at SES? (before the 8 minute mark) And the price is going up? $29.99? I love that those that were waiting until 1.0 to come out to purchase will have to pay $29.99! Told ya'll to join early access and not wait! You waited? You pay more! Watching the rest of the vid now
  8. Great post @Masterotter117! Thanks for all your hard work!

    Dev Road Map

    Q3 2nd Half "Ongoing terrain workflow improvements" I'm confident this is happening aren't you? "New introductory planet with updated tutorial experience" What planet? Did we get a new planet? Because we are in Q4 now correct? Yes we received the tutorial but a planet. "Wind and dust storm refactor" Did we get this? Have wind and dust storms been refactored? "Orbital experience..." is the single use rocket? If so check that off the list "Update to movement of objects and modules" we got that? "On going UI and menu update" check we got that "Player customization" What's this? "Cosmetic item unlocking and equipping" We got this? "Dedicated servers" We got this too? "In-game server browsing" ? Q4 "Bug fixing and stabilization" "Even more in game performance improvements" I love the 'even more' "Even more load time performance improvements" So having to click 3 times just to start the game is a tad redundant? "Platform achievements" What's this? "Unified Telemetry" Ok sure So like where are we? How we lookin? Major Tom?

    Teathers

    Ben here are some things I've done and seen others do to prevent getting lost in caves Where you create the fork, use your augmentation tool to create an arrow in the wall, ceiling or floor which points you in the direction of home Where you create the fork, use a tether or two or three on the ceiling rather than on the floor which will be an indicator of the way home (or if you put your tethers on the ceiling like I do then place a few on the floor) Where you create the fork, use a beacon to point you in the direction of home Where you create the fork, use resources to point to home Where you create the fork, use research pods to point the way home Where you create the fork, use tethers to form an arrow to point the direction out

    The sad truth about the game.

    You're high on hopes Bron and low on facts. I hope you are correct however I've seen no evidence of what you 'believe' to be coming in the game.... "I think Astroneer can be both" however is it? Am I really exploring if I have to be tethered? How can I explore if it is virtually impossible to get lost, ever? It is an oxymoron at best. "I think we will see more construct-able components" I've not seen any of this. I like you hope we get them however I've not seen any and the last couple (shredder) I don't build or use unless forced to. So if I'm given more things like the shredder then do I really want them? "I believe builders will have plenty for them to be happy with" again, you are hoping I've seen no proof I like you are looking forward to more great discoveries, however we've not seen many thus far I like you are looking forward to more strange mysteries, or how about just one? I like you are looking forward to more wonders to encounter, however the only one I've seen thus far is a plant that I can bounce off of? Um, it is ok, I guess. Nothing I'm going to be spending hours upon hours doing although I can imagine I will bounce off a plant or two a couple of times to see what it is like then just run by them like any other plant for the next 800+ hours of play. "I'm sure the game will deliver these in the long run" Again, wishful thinking not facts and the term 'the long run' please don't encourage them to take more time. It took more than a year just to get the steering on the vehicles to somewhat work as designed. IMHO, it takes far too long now for anything; bug fixes, steering, falling through the ground, lag, MP etc. kinda really long wait periods. Really long. I'm not arguing with you, I hope you are correct on each and every prediction however we receive little to no information here which leaves us with only hopes and dreams are all we have at the moment
