    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....

    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

    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

    I don't know about this 'scrap' thing.

    Yeah, unless the discord community wants it removed, it ain't a gonna be happenin since they are the ones that spawned the shredders to begin with

    Extenders vs Splitter

    Why should I use one over the other? TBH, I've never ever once (in nearly 800 hours of play) felt the need to split power. Maybe I don't build bases in a way that would require more power to go left rathar right? Also, I've never felt the need extend anything unless I am building an underground base. I think. Which leads me to believe I'm using/thinking of these two items incorrectly? Is it that my power supply is in such good order that I don't need to split power? Is it that the splitter is for future use? I will use the splitter if I want to lengthen my base or spread platforms apart. I think they look better than extenders but I don't use them to split power. What do ya'll use them fer?

    Extenders vs Splitter

    How exactly? How is it quite complicated? I'm not finding any complexity at all. We are Astroneers, aren't we supposed to be smart? Aren't Astronauts engineers, scientists, university graduates....... 400+ years into the future Astroneers (gamers) have to be less intelligent than Astronauts (pong players)? Why is the best solution to any issue.... "dumb the game down" There might be an 8 year old that picks up a controller, better dumb the game down! There might be a person that has never played any game before lets hold his hand each and every step of the way keep the hand holding in place. I'm already an "explorer" that can't get lost, can't there be an option to play an adult/gamers version of the technology aspect of this game? Why can't we ask the bar to be raised rather than lowered? Can't it mean "E" for everyone because it has no cussing, nudity or gore? Why does it have to mean "E" for everyone and you do mean everyone? Can't the world just accept the fact that some people just won't understand this game (due to many factors) and just move on? And by moving on I mean, can't the game begin to grow in complexity and expand upon the possibilities of 400+ years into the future? Why can't it be me when the next update comes out that scratches my head and tries to figure out how to do the new thing? Why does it always have to be the person that has 8 hours played that is blown away and not the person with 800+ hours? Why can't the hardcore fans/players be rewarded by being such and in doing so add in complexity?

    It is a hot thread because Martin is a hottie! Well you don't have to make tethers however they removed the air bubbles that used to be on the surface and in caves so now the only source of oxygen is tethers

    Extenders vs Splitter

    https://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/a11tether.html Martin, come now even you have to admit your definition of 'tether' is nothing and I mean nothing like what is used in game. The tether you speak of was to prevent falls. The tether we are talking about in game is a life line. Stop muddying up the waters. Your argument is full of holes and therefore does not hold water. And your argument about not using them? Really? That too holds no water. Hey, I'm willing to discuss this with you but you have to be an adult using facts and logic. These Trumpian excuses, "reasoning" and lack of facts is just really childish. Your follow up post I won't even comment on as that is just pure childish gibberish.
  21. The Touch of Grey Gamer

    Extenders vs Splitter

    Meant to state: They have no power to produce oxygen yet they do. And don't get me wrong I'm not 100% against tethers. For those that want to play with them, I'm in your corner! For those that don't, I'm in your corner too! I absolutely understand why people would want to play with tethers. There are numerous reasons. If someone is just able to play a few hours a week and don't want to spend that time trying to find their base, they just want to play, never get lost, just play. I dig it! I'm in your corner! Maybe there are two or more people using the same Astroneer and just flat out does not want to ever die or ever get lost or ever take that risk, they just want to play, I'm in their corner! If someone want to play a multi-hour session and does not want it thrown away just because they got lost, I'm in their corner too! Whatever the reason anyone wants to play with tethers they should be able to. Just like Those of us that don't want to use tethers. Those of us who want to take on the role of a traditional explorer. Maybe even on foot? Maybe there are those who want the additional risk of dying. Maybe there are those that will play hardcore & tether free at the same time? I think I just blew some minds! Maybe there are some of us that would like the multiplayer risk of dying due to lack of oxygen? I'm just not understanding why both worlds; style of play, preference of play, can't be the norm?

    However in 1969 men walked on the moon without tethers? When this game was first released, there were no tethers? 1k years? Redundancy? Rovers don't have a redundant system, they produce oxygen for ever and ever they never break down? I've never seen a tether break, have you? So why would my suit run out of anything when rovers don't? Why would the gizmo run out when tethers never break? Then again aren't there some platform that produce oxygen? They never break or have a redundant system do they? Then again when I find some crashed spacecraft they produce oxygen, but how? They have no power. How many more holes would you like me to poke in your argument for forcing players to use tethers?

    1. We will be receiving an update in October. 2. Anyone can add to this list.

    There is no need for an additional update if terrain 2.0 is going to replace everything anyway
