    Stand Alone Creative Mode

    Negative. Not much of a war game fan, even though I played Battlefield 4 quite a lot... However, you should look into Ark if you are into survival games. It's got crafting, base building, tech unlocking, resource gathering, etc. Remind you of anything? 😎 I got the game a couple of weeks ago and I can't seem to put it down... The reason I mention it is because it has a creative mode in single player or self-hosted multiplayer, and it's not a separate game mode. You can enable it via a button in the main menu (if it's enabled in your starting settings), or via an admin console command. Once enabled, you are automatically put on creative mode with all the benefits it comes with until you disable it. Maybe SES should take ideas from it...

    My Save Game Is.....

    I've noticed that on my save games and when I join other friend's saves, the habitat lands in or around the same spot in relation to where the teleporters (at least the nearest one) are located. I have a theory that the initial habitat is coded to always land in a fixed location. The landscape might be procedural, but the positioning looks to be fixed. It would be awesome to let us choose our landing spot instead of just dropping us all in the same spot. The initial launch could stop in orbit and from there we choose the spot...

    Have you ever played Ark: Survival Evolved?

    Would you buy merch?

    It's weird to see a game nowadays not being accompanied by some sort of merch store: t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, hats, posters, figures, etc. Heck, they could even sell some sort of diorama set, even partner up with Hasbro and do an entire toy line, or with KIRKBI to do Lego sets. I would be down for some toy collectibles. This company definitely needs a more aggressive marketer...

    Guess what these new leeks are?

    So I guess dedicated servers, a feature that was supposed to be available at launch and delayed, is being pushed further back. Awesome. Wake me up when it arrives. As for "big announcements," I'll just wait and see. These supposed "big" announcements from Pax are usually a bit underwhelming, ok'ish at best. Want to do a really "BIG" announcement? Release both dedicated servers and that exploration update that's not in the trello roadmap, whatever that includes. Then you can call me impressed...

    The Lunar Update - July 18th, 2019

    This, plus dedicated servers...

    Mega Worlds are next to impossible solo

    Me and my friends have not done this (and have held from playing Astroneer altogether) for two reasons: (1) the current state of multiplayer, and (2) the lack of information about the features coming with dedicated servers, whether we could import and/or share old save games or not. We don't want to dedicate long play hours to something that could potentially be ruined or non transferable once dedicated servers hit. I personally have two save games that I've done solo, but this game is better when friends collaborate. Too bad multiplayer is still unplayable...

    So... Where's the beef?

    Title. When's the real "meaty" stuff coming to the game, like dedicated servers or the so-called "Wanderer Update"? Just curious...

    Stop adding content and fix bugs/crashing please.

    Couldn't agree more! +1

    Long term gameplay fun and balance

    +1 There were so many things that the devs could have accomplished with the purple teleporters, like adding alien lore, or researchable alien artifacts which grant new technologies or the ability to teleport other items besides oneself, or any other space exploration related stuff, not beach-ball soccer. Multiplayer sucks, for lack of a better word, yet the devs introduced items meant for multiplayer. Who thought this would be a good idea? Fix multiplayer first where fps don't drop to 4 or less, then add multiplayer mechanics. There are a ton of good space-related ideas in the suggestions sub-forum, yet they picked a beach ball. I don't mean to be harsh, but geez, they need someone over there with better ideas, who's not willing to settle for mediocrity, who motivates their team to constantly push the envelope, who's not an enabler or a "yes" person, who's not afraid to say "this is crap"...

    Reaction to replies

    Been asking the same thing for over a year, plus the ability to edit our own posts without any time limits. Let's see if whomever's in charge will finally "listen"...

    Holy crap, mods help this poor forum.

    This only showcases the state of abandonment in which this forum is currently at. Such a shame...

    The Summer Update - June 20th, 2019

    Still no dedicated servers?

    I would suggest digging with your terrain tool and making ramps. Takes time, but it's easier than having to steadily maneuver a vehicle and a drill down in the caves. Easier to get in or out, plus you'll have a nice path to underground resources such as laterite, sphalerite, ammonium and research pods, which are abundant in caves...
