    Start astro, leave it to run, after a few mins I get error in task manager "not responding" and it just increases in ram usage until the pc locks up.  Typical ram use at startup is 1.5mbs as you can see in screenshot it's at nearly 20gb which is 71% of my total ram..

    I have to manually exit the program to stop it crashing/locking up the pc.

    You know, i had the same idea, and the same issue but, i had friends on the game to disconnect the "big purple thing" and it went ok. And by playing in multiplayer i had a lot of lags and glitches i had not before, do you see me crying on a forum? i lost my diamond drill and many rare ressources because of the effect of the "big purple thing" and the lack of oxygen during the process... yeah sometimes bugs sucks, but it is a game bro deal with it, talk about it and hopefully it will be fixed, no need to get upset.


    If I want to get upset about something.. that's my choice mate.  Although really at the time I was just frustrated at the lack of ability to exit the game, because if I'd saved at that time, it would have broken my savegame.  Which I think, people should get upset about.. esp as there's only a single save file.

    Comrade, since yesterday I can not use mine save. The game hangs and does not work. Have read such problems currently others have synonymous. Is there any solution? Will not start a new game... Please help!

    Start a New Game.. delete old save.

    yup, can't load saves, get stuck in the loading solar system screen and have to hard shut down, hopefully the update on 2/22/19 will help, waiting patiently. tired of starting new games playing and saving regularly for hours of game play only to suffer loading solar system screen of death because the save file is so corrupted.

    Before I uninstalled astro, I used to load the game, exit to desktop, then reload the save and it always seemed to work alot better.  Like there's files being kept in memory that allow the game to work properly.  However, I've lately reinstalled my o/s and steam, I won't be rushing anytime soon to reinstall astroneer.

    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

    Oh i completely agree.  On the bangers and mash front.. no seriously, I'd prefer not to have "kill storms" but I could see their viability.. that said, wind storms can kill you as can fog etc.. the speed I drive at in astroneer.. i am often shooting off into very deep holes in the fog on exotic moon.

    I hope they all get skin cancer from ultraviolet radiation! 😛

    Whilst I understand that this is likely ment as a sarcastic joke, it isn't as funny as you might think.  Nor something you should with thought, be suggesting, even as a joke.  And yes, I could just report the post and complain, but I feel a softer approach is preferred.  Skin Cancer is no laughing matter.

  6. Storms needed to be reworked.  The standard boxes in  ur face is fine for an ea, but it was just tedious after awhile.  And yeh, you can just ignore them by going underground or even in most cases just standing behind something to block the ups boxes.

    Ideally we need storms that can kill you outright, slow you down a little sometimes or just act as a visual impairment.  The weather ideas ses are working on sounds like the right route.  Maybe with something harsher tossed in randomly.

    But to demand that everyone pays the price of a few who liked having the storms is just as ignorant a demand as from all those who objected to them. 

    Although I do agree that a switch in menu could be a nice direction to go in as well.   in my general opinion, weather and storms, even seasons in games, should be a must for games in this day n age.  Esp in these genres.

  7. Yep terrain 2.0 is definitly broken in places.  There's missing terrain textures, splits in the terrain allow you to see floating resources etc.

    The general terran surface terrain can be abit random, I've had games with endless plains, with almost no mtns at all, others just put mountains and great holes everywhere.  I completely agree with the op.  Terrain 1.0 on Terran was a much nicer generation, but I'd also agree that the other planets are generally quite nice generations as well, except maybe terrans moon which I don't really like at all.

  8. I think it's hilarious that people actually think we'd all just exploit it to save loosing stuff in a death.. like get a grip.  Are you really going to run around for an hour.. fall in a hole and die, then exit without saving to loose an hours gameplay.. rather than run out to your corpse, pick up your stuff and carry on?

    You can already alt tab and exit manually or even, if you only have astroneer running just hit Alt F4 and quit without saving.  So why not have a process in the menu to do it safely? To have the software quit safely without possible corruptions?  From what I can see of the possible objections.. there aren't any.  Just accusations that anyone who did this is a cheater.. not someone who's gotten stuck in the game and is unable to get unstuck.

    Of course, I am not saying you should be happy with what you got. Definitely not. But do please communicate your anger and/or disappointment within reason.

    If anything this should be under suggestions.. I wasn't reporting the crashes as bugs.  Although I have now made seperate bug reports for the crashes and getting stuck.

    "lost like 3-4 hours of play due to not saving."

    So you actually think people should save, just incase the game crashes? What is that, some kind of new world order, lets wear a crash helmit in bed incase someone throws a brick through my window attitude?

    I should be able to play a released game for 10-12 hours without saving and not expect it to crash.

    As it was.. I had 2 crashes in the first 30 seconds of gameplay.  And not saving the game, shows the addictiveness of the gameplay.. so really, it's a good thing.  If you think about it.  Not that I expect you to.

    As for the rest of ya who also can't read or think.. get knotted.

    I'd like a quit without saving option.  I can alt f4 and I can alt tab and manually exit, so there is no valid argument for not having it in menu options.  Although alt f4 can be abit buggy if you have multi apps running.

    @MartinI personally have not encountered any bugs or crashes. I've been to Sylva's moon, Desolo and found the Big purple thing, though I have no clue what it is, and have not encountered any sort of crash. Have you tried validating the game files? Sometimes steam messes up game updates and the game files become corrupted.

    I uninstalled Ea astro, deleted all the appdata files etc.  Rebooted my pc, fresh installed astro. 

    Got a fancy eula popup.. okdayed that. got ingame.. crashed. Boom.. nothing like a ctd to say hello.

    Restarted pc, thinking.. just installed the game, maybe some detail not finalised etc.. started game.  Roaming around for maybe 2 hours or so.. saw purple thing.. walked upto it.. Boom.. ctd.  Reloaded game.. ahahha.. yeh.. i'd not saved.. not once.. hey a new start.. this time, I made a rover seat and carried it around with me.. put it on ground to manually save every 15 mins or so.. found the purple thing.. no crash.. in fact other some some minor weird bugs, nothing serious.. then I got stuck inside the platform.. if I had wanted to save the game then.. it would have ruined the savefile.. thus.. I would like to see a non save exit function in menu.. in most cases, after a non crashing session with no obvious bugs I'd save and exit.. but when I encounter a bug or crash or fatal.. yes, I don't thunk it too much to ask for a simple, quit now option.  Seems to make sense to me.. obviously not so much for some others.  Who seem to think making nonsense replies using extra large fonts and swearing at me like a fanbois.. and btw.. I am a fanbois of astroneer, I thunk the game is awesome!! Yeah!! boi.. but I also unfortunately.. have a brain and it works and I think for myself and if I see bugs n flaws I point em out.. I'd think my 1700 odd posts in this forum would show I am a fan of astroneer.. as opposed to someones minor 500 or so.


    Not that I'm suggesting grey isn't a fan either.  I know he is.. and he's old n me..


    Bullet points.. only bullet points I know of.. come out of the wrong end of a gun.

    Rebel Lord isnt a troll, its the way you worded your original msg. I have never seen any forum for any game where you could post a msg like that and not get your ass handed to you, just do a bullet point of what you think needs added/improved and post it in the suggestions/ideas forums and you will get a much better reception.

    But ya, the whole reason you can't quit without saving is so when you fall through a deep hole and you are gonna die then you cant just quit and reload, you gotta try hard to get out or lose your mods and batteries

    Sorry I missed you..

    Not a Troll?

    If I fell down a deep hole.. I'd just die and respawn.. why would I save and exit? Or not save and exit, then reload an hour earlier and loose all my last hours work?  I only request this to bypass loosing my entire save file due to a bug in the game.   Yes, that last part was screamed.  But I can't be bothered using a bigger font.

  10. XXX 


    I bought an EA. If this bug was in the EA I would have reported it.

    It is now in the officially released version.  Not the Ea.. I'm not here to report bugs in an official version, I don't care if it's not been tested, I don't care that I got stuck inside the purple thing.. what I don't like is being forced to alt tab and manually close the program because no exit without saving function exists in the game.  Alt F4 doesn't always work..

  11. This is a released game.. not an ea.. so there's the door rebel whatever..

    As for dealing withit.. the buggy purple thing.. not the problem.. try comprehending the message..

    Not being able to exit without saving.. is a problem, if we encounter bugs in the game.  Now kindly.. off.

  12. Talk about a mess..

    First time upto the purple thing.. Crash to desktop..lost like 3-4 hours of play due to not saving.

    Get to purple thing dig out 3 sockets, connect something to socket, platform rises.. figure maybe i need to stand on platform..

    Oh no.. don't do that.

    Stands on platform, connects to socket, boom, inside the platform, stuck.  Can't escape, on oxygen because of tether, can't die.

    Completely screwed.

    Can't quit game without saving.. Like seriously?

    Had to Alt Tab, and exit manually, to stop save being overwritten.

    You guys have had plenty of time.. and you gave games away to morons on youtube and they didn't spot this shit.. and now you have a buggy mess to deal with.

    Seriously.. add a quit "without" saving option..

    In fact if you're gonna keep adding bugs like this that ruin longterm not saving gameplay.. add an autosave.

  13. No vampires here..

    I was wondering how they'd marry up the new moon with the old game, turns out it won't be part of the old game.  ie you won't create a game then be able to travel to the new moon.

    Instead, they're planning on adding the new moon with terrain 2.0 via the customisation/load/create game wheel, ie a button next to the tutorial.  So we'll essentially get access to a single world moon in t2.0 and if you want to fly space ships, you'll need to save/exit and make a new game or load an old save.

    Else wait for the full release in Dec.

    Is the 1.0 release supposed to be a beta release or the actual release?  With things still occasionally falling through the ground into the planet core for no reason, if it's supposed to be the real thing that is worrying. I really hope that Terrain 2.0 is the primary focus right now - the physics bugs have *got* to be fixed before a real release, or there will be a backlash. At heart (at least right now), this game is about collecting stuff, and having things magically disappear through the ground, or getting thrown into orbit from a cave will not be acceptable to people thinking this was a finished product. It's the end of October, and they say it's supposed to come out in December of  this year. 

    It's the full release of the game, with all content in place incl terrain 2.0  However, there's still content to be added after release listed in the road map.
