    Dev Road Map

    Cartography would be something nice to have. Driving for hours when lost is not exactly my idea of a fun time. And yeah, SES "got some 'splainin' to do" with rollerblades...

    Dev Road Map

    Because creating a horn sound and applying it to an in-game button takes months of research, preparation, development and testing, whereas cartography is a 30-minute thing that any of their devs can do in their lunch break... 😎

    Update 1.1.2 - May 10, 2019

    Supposedly Microsoft rejected the update on Xbox because of a bug. We're still waiting...

    Update 1.1.2 - May 10, 2019

    Wow, what a bad, bad analogy. You are not obligated to play this game. You don't owe SES nothing. @Clo33's point of view is quite right, if you ask me. You can either play something else while they fix stuff, or play the game in whatever state it is right now, your choice. But if you do and it aggravates you, it's on you, because you can choose to play something else... As for me, I'm going to play for a while to test the new stuff when the update finally comes out, then back to something else until they release dedicated servers, no worries. I don't dedicate my life to playing games. I play for fun only. If it's not fun, why do it? Go chill with something else and let SES do their thing. The game's not going anywhere. "Shikata ga nai..."

    Wanderer Update

    "EXO Dynamics Personal Mobility Object -- aka Rollerblades"? Dedicated servers...

    April Update.....................

    Fellow Mass hole? I'm just waiting for dedicated servers. Never was a fan of the shredder mechanic, but that extra large platform looks promising...

    Research Pods

    Really? "Prickly Pairs"? Is that the best you can do?? 😎

    Patch - March 13th, 2019

    To any mod/dev that may be reading this: Fix the sub-forum title. It still reads "Astroneer Early Access + Game Preview". Doesn't take a whole minute to do so...

    Portable Oxygenator

    I built one, used it for less than 5 minutes, and it's currently sitting in a medium storage somewhere. It consumes too much power to be of any real utility. You need a constant power source to use it. Wind turbines are unreliable. Solar panels are useless in caves. Small generators require organic. All these use up a valuable backpack slot, two or more in the case of a small generator + organic. Plus if you're using mods and drills for your terrain tool, then you're just out of luck. Where's the portable RTG?

    Research objects: too good?

    If people have no self-control, that's another issue entirely. I don't go buying everything I see just because it's on sale, nor click on every spam email I get, etc...

    Research objects: too good?

    Everyone can play the game however they want. If you choose to do this and it ruins your experience afterwards, it's your own fault...

    Patch 1.0.7 - February 21, 2019

    This is a legacy bug. I assure you, no plant causes it...

    Storage module for tractor trailer

    Two words: medium rover...
  14. The easiest way to go Sylva's core and back for me is to unlock the boost mod (1 zinc), wide mod (1 zinc) and the first drill mod (1 ceramic), and plenty of tethers. Make a hole near your base at about 45º down or steeper, and keep digging down and flattening the ramp until you reach the third cave layer. Then, dig another 45º ramp down facing the opposite direction for three more layers, and repeat until you reach the last cave layer with the purple nodes. Make a hole straight down against the purple node and you're in the core. Just waltz in dropping tethers, and don't forget to bring your quartz (or three). With this approach you will dig up plenty of malachite, laterite, sphalerite, ammonium and ASTRONIUM (1,000 bytes per bundle every 2.5 minutes can't be beat, except for a stroll inside Atrox caves, where the little research nuggets give over 400 bytes apiece, but I digress) along the way, and you will make the path to the core an easier one. You can surf your way down or bring a buggy... Same approach for the rest of the planets, except use a better drill mod for the harder planets...

    Is this a joke?

  17. Tell me about it. Devs don't even come here to their own forums except to post an announcement once in a blue moon, then completely disappear. Heck, look at the breadcrumbs line, the sub-forum still reads "Astroneer - Early Access + Game Preview"!
  18. Does anyone know how to do change the game's default monitor? It keeps opening in my secondary monitor, and I have to move it to my primary every time. Steam, Windows 10...

    Changing Default Monitor

  20. The starting planet is the only one in which we can't choose where we land. I think giving us that option when we start new games can be a good thing. The game could transition from the habitat launching animation to orbiting the planet so we can choose a landing location...

    Activated the core. BUT

    Restart the game...

    stuck at Desolo

    Build an outpost while you're there...
  23. You can put rover seats on all cargo compartments (including the one for the oxygenator) and launch with other players...
  24. I was wondering the same thing last night. You just need to quit and restart the game. The game should unlock them automatically without having to quit and restart...
