    Research Pods

    #79! I just found pod #79! I could not wait to post until I got back to base and put it into my Pod Museum! Could I be more excited?! (Chandler voice) Could there be more pods yet to be discovered? I found it on Arid & it glows brightly! The quest for: fireworks, unique research pods & junkyard materials continues! Up UP and A-WAYYYYYYY!!!!!

    My Save Game Is.....

    33.9 MB LARGE!!!!!!!!! 1) Is that large? 2) Is yours larger? 3) What do I do while playing that increases the MB size? 4) Can I ever decrease the MB size? 5) Is there a MB cap? 6) The larger the MB the lower the Frame Rate or is that a myth?

    My Save Game Is.....

    1.) Thanks! 2.) Be proud of your 2mb save. No one has a 2mb save like yours! 3.) I started playing this save the day the game was officially released; way back in February! The only game/save I have. Thanks for the other responses!

    Some ideas

    I love the smart generator idea. Brilliant! Some form of a railway system has been asked for repeatedly. Thus far it is not on the development roadmap. No instant research? That is a player option. I only use research pods to gain bytes. If you die, it's game over... That too is a player option. Nothing says you can't play that way, then when/if you die, start over! Tweakable costs... I've got 1.3 million bytes (and increasing) with nothing to do with, thus far, but that does not stop me from doing what I do to have fun Placing.... no idea what you mean Terrain Tools.. any additions, changes, improvements would be greatly welcomed by me! I (as have others) want more materials, crafting and planets. I would replace end game content with "a story", a method a reason as to why Astroneer? Sadly, however, you will see on the development roadmap, that more of anything is not on their radar. More resources? No! More planets? A no! More equipment? Options? Nada. I've said multiple times, I would pay for a DLC. I would pay for multiple DLC's. IF, IF, the money is used to hire more staff to improve and expand the game. Now if you want more grind...well my friend...I know a bit about that style of play! I have a challenge fer ya! Unlock everything & have 1million bytes to spare You can't ever build power (other than RTG's and solar arrays) of any type. No wind turbines, no batteries, no panels. You have to find and bring back to base all power you need You can only use research pods to acquire bytes Oh and one last little extra... you die once, you start over! If you accomplish this challenge I have others that are more difficult. So are ya a hardcore grinder or not?

    Extra Large Shredder

    Countersink them so they become the "floor" for your base! Sometimes they will still carry power so you could even countersink them low enough to have just the tops of the lights above the surface!

    Guess what these new leeks are?

    The blue lighted bar going around the structure looks like it is powered? Does the blue in the bar going around the structure look lit up to you? Would they post a wreck? Does not seem like something that would be highlighted, a wreck that is. Color me all types of excited!

    Guess what these new leeks are?

    Leaks 1 - 3 & 4 mean diddley to me. SES's history is not what I would call; Leak 2 I'm going to have to say it is a oxygenator and RTG combined It has feet It has a slot on top Windows? Looks like a habitat to me!

    Why do they have to be "young?" Are you an agest? 👵👴 I'd pick 3 as it does not make a difference to me

    Spelunking tips

    Let's all hope that with the Wanderer update, and the ability to lay roads, the ridiculous red bar of terribleness is a thing of the past replaced with something that is easy to work with. What we have now is just so bad, so very very bad.

    Have an idea? Is our game missing a feature? Read this first.

    +1 on your ideas On #4 I was always hoping for a time when EXO Dynamics or some other entity wanted the trees. Which would let us have some new machines to harvest them, transport them and ultimately ship them via spaceship! Maybe they could be traded? Cut up with the shredder into smaller logs? I just wish there was more to do with the trees.

    quality of life ideas

    My intention was not to be rude. I re-read it, I don't see rude. I see an honest opinion and some facts So think about it. Every player could have each planet set on a different day/night cycle. For example one could play a game where on only Sundays have daylight! Or maybe 100% darkness on Atrox to bump up the difficulty aspect! It's not like every real world planet gets the exact same amount of daylight and darkness every day now do they? And for those with poor eyesight? Wouldn't it be nice for them to be recognized by SES? Once we can lay road networks (Wanderer Update), with the new lights, I don't want any daylight really. I like that at night it is very difficult to find graphite. And I'm sure I've passed many deposits of it in the dark. To me, it just adds another level of play, if one desires. One does not have to adjust anything at all to continue to enjoy the game. While others like me, would prefer to play pretty much all the time in darkness. I used to be a light guy but now, I'm a nightneer! I like the darkness better now. I like how not everything is easily handed to me like during daylight. I like being topside at night more than in caves. I think they are two different types of darkness. Of course the game is more beautiful during the daylight but the more I play on the same save, the more I want that little bit extra difficulty level that darkness brings. Plus when the servers are up I'm totally hosting a weekly dark only game. Whaat post?
