    I agree 100% @Listatta M is spot on!

    In search of new challenges

    Thanks to everyone for all the input and advice. I'm going to choose a different route. I'm going to be a logger. An Astroneer Logger. An Astrologger? I just received an order from the AISA- Astroneer Ikea Space Association for up to 1,000 trees! Apparently there is a need that just can't be filled anywhere else in the galaxy! I don't know if I can cut down 1,000 however I will get paid for all the trees I do cut down. The trick is going to be to put them into nice neat bundles so they can be later retrieved by an AISA space freighter. I will have to use beacons so AISA will know where to land and pick them up. Luckily I don't have to be there when they arrive to pick the trees up as it is all automated. As luck would have it I also received a message labeled urgent that I can't use organic materials for power. Apparently, I was sent the wrong filters for the small generator. Ground Control thinks I may be able to use a filter once before it will have to be discarded. Now I'm forced to use other means of power!

    I like the new Small Rover - So when are you going to nerf it?

    Oh brother, we are talking about a different game. A three year old game. If you are going to butt in, why not read first, get caught up, then add your comments. I have no idea what game Wyvy is talking about. And back into the ignore bin you go....

    Trust, I understand it makes no sense to you Semantics, nothing more than semantics And back in the day people chose to believe the cigarette companies when they stated their product was not a health hazard. You choose to believe 'early access' just because a game company labels its own product so. I on the other hand choose to believe that company is full of chit. I believe that they are using that terminology as a shield to deflect criticism, to keep overall positive ratings, to keep the uproar on forums to a minimum, to give their supporters/fan boy's a battle cry whenever someone questions the company, etc. I have little doubt the term early access was coined by a marketing genius.

    Falling Through the Ground

    It happens to me as well. It comes and goes. Something about the engine does not render the ground quick enough. I have not seen it in a while now. Yeah Orange Astroneer!

    why even use the medium wind turbine?

    It is worth the cosmetic appeal. Too bad it does not have lights, colored lights or something to enhance the rotations. The cost of things does not matter. There is so much of everything that cost is never an issue for me. I can concur that the wurring is less than optimal. I wish it had more of a space/futuristic sound. Then again we have a train whistle when we launch from the space station so......

    Bytes are through the research chamber. What effect would not being able to use the mineral extractor have?

    Dead Astroneers

    It is now May 18 when I originally posted it was May 11. I have played every day since the original post. I have found 27 dead Astroneers (I've been tallying), the only things I have ever found on their backpacks has been: fireworks, filters & extenders nothing else. I'm for what @wondible suggests.

    To me the scout could serve a few purposes. For the company maybe it was a great way to test/re-work/optimize travel for all rovers? Maybe the technology learned through the scout can be transferred to the medium and large rovers? In MP it could be rather fun. Although I can see it has limits I think in SP it is very limited. While cute and somewhat fun it's limits are abundantly clear after only a few minutes of play. Now if I were 6 or 8 years old then I would be on top of the world over the scout however as an adult, it has many limits, right now. Could a transport be made available so that we could carry it in a research train, unload it, scout the area, and return to the trailer for later use? Can modders have a field day with it? Now it is good, in the future it can be so much better.
  12. It happens all the time old save or new game. There is no fix. Well, no fix you can do. I keep exiting and saving and reloading which seems to help sometimes yet other times it does nothing at all.

    Beacons disappearing

    Yeah, mine too. Not the first 50 or so hours of play but after that I've been having huge issues with 7. Sometimes after I leave planets I can see my beacons floating in space.

    Help me I think I'm falling in.......

    Ok another weird thing. Tears in the surface, a lot of tears in the surface of my newly started game. I can see Resin through the crack. I'm trying to suck it up however soil is being added to the surface tear to cover it.? I'm not trying to cover the tear I'm trying to suck up the Resin I can see through the tear however soil is being added rather than sucking? What up wit dat yo? Yeah I'm floating up and down through the surface just like we did way way back in the day.

    Do rovers have to have wheels? Can't they have trax? Can't they hover? I know they don't, but couldn't some type of vehicle be used to more or less disregard the terrain/soil all together? PODS? Why can't we have a shrink ray attachment to our vacuum which would in turn allow us to shrink research pods into our back packs? Thus making the scout rover more useful? Or walking more useful?
