    This is seriously full release?

    All we get @Destyre is just like @TheBlackDeveloper tells us. More "just you wait". More "one day". And you guessed it, a dash of "oh boy just you wait one of these days!". Not by SES staff mind you, just fan bois. Fan bois with no facts, just a lot of hopes and wishes and dreams and unfounded confidence. We were told T2 was the magic bullet. I'm with you, I ain't be seein a whole lotta magic in the form of fixes that's fer sure. I see more and more things added to the game, the game that has a multitude of bugs, however as you mentioned the same bugs that have been from day one are still here. For those of us that want to play the game, today, why just why, in an exploration game, is providing the paying customer with 100% WAD driving vehicles so out of reach for us, the paying customer? Why? Why after all these years/months why are we still having transportation issues? Is it not a game of exploration? How can working vehicles not be the highest priority? I buy a game that touts exploration however since my purchase back in December 2016, the only 100% reliable mode of transportation on/in planets is by foot. How can this not be driving someone anyone at SES as bazerk as it does me and others? I just want to drive like I do and have done in dozens upon dozens upon dozens upon dozens of other games. Why won't you let me drive like a normal person SES WHY????????? While I'm ranting...........for the love of God, if you (SES) can't, just simply can't fix the issues with vehicles can you have the decency to save our collective sanity and remove them and replace them with something that actually works? Please show some compassion and give us something, anything that works 100%, please. @Destyre If you want SES attention you need to go to the discord or the twitch or any other platform but here. They don't come here, they don't respond here, they don't leak info here. To them much like the vehicles are to us....................disappear
  4. Yeah I don't know man. I've been here since 12/16 and yeah to still have these issues.... SES history tells me something entirely different. Remember wasn't the time delay in updates to T1 so they could work on T2? Didn't they raise the price? Didn't we have to wait well over a year for a steering fix? Are vehicles still falling through surfaces? I love SES and everyone that works there and only hope the best for them, however the OP is not so far out in left field IMHO Remember opinions are like butt-holes in that everybody has one!

    Not at all. But I'm thinking storms are ok on the starter planet just not "kill" storms. Fog, rain, acid rain, snow, methane, liquid iron, gas storms (you know @Martin has plenty of those after a nice big plate of bangers and mash!), sleet, heat & of course pennies from heaven. We can have weather and storms just not so sure why each and every one has to be a "kill" storm

    Purple Triangle Thing

    Is this WAD? I don't want to give too much away for those that have not attempted it yet. I'm just curious if it is working 100% or are there issues?

    Purple Gateway Chamber

    I love the purple gateway chambers, I think. I've opened/unlocked all 6(?) on Sylva, the two on Desolo (which were the only ones I could find on either planet) and I also opened up one on Atrox. I achieved the achievement Utilize the Gateway Fast Travel Network Here's the thing. I'm not figuring out what GC is #1 or #3 or whatever. When I'm traveling it seems to be all random. Or, is there something as plain as day right in front of me that I'm missing? I have yet to travel between celestial bodies. I'm sure it can be done but I'm just not seeing how. I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Who's got the answers?🌚

    Thanks for the tip I will try that!

    Purple Gateway Chamber

    @Tactile Object thanks! I just went from one GC to another on Sylva. I can't figure out how to choose which GC I want to travel to. I'm choosing 1 - 6 on the purple hologram thing (which by the way is cool yet difficult to navigate as I can't get my Astroneer to walk around to the other side of it to see the other 'gems' to highlight?) to go to but I don't know where each of the 6 are on the planet. I wish a nice holographic map of the planet would show so I could just pick the exact GC I want to go to. Unless of course I'm missing something. I think this may have been designed with MP in mind? I don't know I'm trying to figure it out but to no avail thus far

    Stuck Rover Trains

    This bug has been around FOREVER. It has been in every update of the game. It has been complained about FOREVER. It has to this date not been fixed. I never use vehicles. They just are not worth the hassle. They may work for a while then they go to pot. Flying into space, falling through the ground etc. they are just not worth the hassle until and if SES can ever get a fix for it.

    Best Improvements

    The Packager Beyond a doubt my most favorite thing thus far What say you?
  15. The Touch of Grey Gamer

    Best Improvements

    Also, I'm diggin the ability to press "F" when carrying something and how it sticks to my suit and allows me to run and jump etc. Man what an improvement! It makes carrying things sooooo much easier! Plus it looks cool when done from a distance.

    And lest us not forget that storms only happened during the day. The most beautiful part of the game. And lest us not forget that from day one I was the one that consistently posted that weather should be a customizable player option.
  19. The Touch of Grey Gamer


    Not all planets have storms Not all storms kill Except for Astroneer And I keep asking but no one can respond. How do storms bring excitement? A challenge? It's not like they could sneak up on you. To avoid one all anyone has to do is dig a hole. You are born with the terraforming gun so it's not like at any time you just can't dig a hole. 800+ hours played and I've yet to find anything attached to storms other than annoyance. Do I think storms could add to the game? Sure. However when every storm kills, when they arrive every 8 - 15 minutes, when they bring no beauty, when they bring no challenge, when we don't ever have to plan for them other than digging a hole, yeah no. Could they be made to be more complex and absolutely add to the game? Sure, they already do in other games. However to produce the same exact storms, with the same exact effects, with the same exact player reaction, it is soooooooooo exactly the same and boring.

    If you mean the "vast majority" when you say 'whining people' you are correct. If however you think a storm lover like yourself is in the majority you are sadly mistaken.

    Research Aid

    Well I for one don't understand these at all. In their current form anyway. This just makes no sense to me. EXO Dynamics place research points into research aid boxes, transport research aid boxes to planets that EXO is sending me to, to have me playing as my Astroneer have to gather yet a different resource to unlock the research points that were at one time on earth where I was originally!? Why the heck don't I just have the research points on earth before I leave? Again, no I don't like this. It is just busy work that now I have unlocked one, just one, I will never use them again. What should be inside them? Items that I can't craft, that can only be acquired via research aid boxes Examples: Shoes that allow for more fall damage Helmet with built in lighting so I don't have to waste valuable back pack slot for Portable oxygenator ETC.

    Is this a joke?

    Yeah I hear ya. I just worded it poorly. I am hoping SES is not putting resources into preventing people from escaping the game to avoid a death. I mean, if I'm SES, once a person purchased the game I would not give a rats behind how they played the game. Die a million times, never die, I would not care. I'm just hoping they (SES) don't care either.
  23. The Touch of Grey Gamer


    I've not seen one thing posted by SES that claims the game is to be dangerous in any way. If you want danger I think you're looking for a different game. Danger is NOT Astroneer's middle name!
  24. The Touch of Grey Gamer


    How are storms dangerous and not just PITA? How are they a wild card? I can't tell you the last time I died from a storm. It just never ever happens. It is just a reason to dig a hole and wait. I don't' want to wait, I'm playing a game. I'll wait for a bus not for a game. Storms came every couple of minutes which was very annoying. The challenge of digging a hole and waiting 2-3 minutes is not a challenge but rather quite annoying and tedious. They add nothing to the game whatsoever other than a delay or like I did, pause, save, quit, restart to avoid the annoying time waiting doing nothing. Not to mention, storms in caves? I would however as I have always said from day one, wish it was a player option.

    Is this a joke?

    @Martin is 100% correct @Rebelord There is a forum boss @Tactile Object "the whole reason........." is that really the reason? If so, that sounds a lot like macro micromanaging to me. Not that I have ever done that or ever would, I didn't even know it was a thing until I read you post. It just got me to thinking................ how sad. If this is true, how sad. But 51% of me thinks this can't be just can't be the reason why @Martin is upset. @Maniacal Michael I'm just not a fan of the new planet names. Any of them. They are too spot on, too obvious, too heard of before. If not exactly pretty darn close. They sound like I have heard them numerous times before or something very similar to each and every one. I'm not feeling the new planet names at all.
