    Flatten Terrain=Fall through ground=Death

    I noticed this issue on xbox just recently. What I've hypothesized is that using the flatten tool was for some reason or another effecting more terrain than it should have and I was walking on the effected terrain. I also think the camera angle might have something to do with it, as I remember standing perfectly still while flattening and falling, as well as walking while flattening and falling. Not too sure, but that's what I've come up with so far. Also, for me, it was more like a free fall that I could move in. The first fall I died. The second I floated back to the surface. And the third I ended up back in the cave I statted in after (all times) clipping through the ground/surface.

    Tether pickup

    So here's what's up. Moving things in the inventory is how this is effected. For some reason or another, tethers will only place themselves in the top-left-most slot of the 4x2 grid. You can place and use the tethers from any slot, including the two on the sides, but they will not return to those slots after being moved. Below for my method... For reference, I'm going to number the slots in order:(left side: 1)(right side: 2)(top-left - bottom-left in order: 3, 4, 5, 6)(top-right - bottom-right in order: 7, 8, 9, 10) First, I made two sets of tethers and an oganic material (just to occupy a spot). Then I placed the organic material in slot 6 and the tethers in slots 1 and 10. With this set up, the tethers were being taken from slot 1 until I had no tethers left in that slot, then they began from the second set. No brainer. However, I only placed three tethers from slot 10. When I went to retrieve them, they began resetting in slot 3. Next I moved slot 3 with three tethers in it to slot 7, and slot 10 to slot 3. From there, and to my formed hypothesis, the three I picked up returned to the slot 3 tethers. Using that, I switched them again (the tethers) back to slot 10 and the new set back to 3, and acquired the rest of the tethers. Then I reset my pack back to the way it was, except I moved the organic in slot 6 to slot 3. (So, slots 1 and 10 have full sets of tethers and slot 3 has the organic) At this point, I realized I was most likely right, and began placing tethers again. This time, however, even with the three missing from slot 10 and the stack removed from slot one, no tethers were being added to slot 10. So, in conclusion, it is possible to return all tethers to your inventory, but they must be moved in your inventory first to slot 3 (top-left, not the side) before re-acquiring them, and it will work for any set of tethers that has at least on missing tether.

    Tether pickup

    Prelim. testing, I have found that placing tethers in either of the side slots DOES NOT effect this. Will continue to play around and post as I find new things.

    Tether pickup

    Just found this issue on xbox. Crafted a few sets then picked up my existing set, and it's gone. My OCD made me pick up the rest to delete them so that I had an even set. Personally, not that big of a problem, but it probably shouldn't happen.
  5. I figured this much for xbox as well. That's fine and all; I figure for building freedom, adding the ability to manipulate the angle of the cursor itself would just be a nice addition.
  6. Esentially, the idea is only to change/add the capabilities of the gun. As it stands, I'm not sure how pc players find the cursor they use to be, but for xbox, it's hard to determine what surface you are actually manipulating when hou are flattening terrain. So, my idea is to add the ability to manipulate the plane of the cursor using the d-pad to change the control scheme in cursor mode to be able to angle it the way way you want to by using the right stick (for xbox. Not too sure how I would make it work for pc, as I haven't had a pc to play on in a very long time). If this is too vague, I can't think of any other way to explain it, and I'm no artist, but I could try to draw up a rough sketch of what it might look like. Just let me know what you think.

    Crash in game.

    First and foremost, the controls for xbox are extremely weird. That my opinion and Im sticking to it. As soon as I built the Truck, it was extremely awkward. The driving was just odd, though I understand that this is prealpha, so the fact that it works was amazing enough. While driving, however, I accidentally ran over one of my tethers, and the game decided to freeze and crash. The moment I touched the tether it crashed. Obviously a problem, but this would be one of those "you did it yourself, so no complaints" situation. Either way, there's the issue, so that you devs know.
