  1. Day 19: Tundra Mission McFatts Jr. Captain's Log: 1-Took off into orbit 2- Landed on Tundra 3- Relocated to "better" landing site 4- Went caving 5- Died 6-Setup a basic outpost Also I found the world to be very soothing and calm. Tundra planets have some great geology and even compound, yay! This was a fun little world to explore, now I've only got one biome left. Exotic.
  2. Day 18 Captain McFatts Jr. Log: Day 18: Setting up shop on a radioactive world 1- Loaded up spaceship with colony setup goodies 2- Hit the ignition and took off for a radioactive world 3- Landed next to a Sarlac pit 4- Set up base with printer, battery and one solar unit 5- Jumped into the Sarlac pit All in all a successful colony setup. I feel that I did a better job setting up on this planet than I did on my first Arid outpost.
  3. Day 17 Captain McFatts Log: 1- Found my truck stuck in the sky...? 2- Loaded up the ship and took off for my Arid World 3- Built a crane and outfitted the truck with the drill 4- Went mining 5- Got stuck Day 17: Lithium/Titanium Mining
  4. I run an after school gaming club so today I decided to enlist the help of some of my 5th grade students. We built a ramp and then attempted to jump my base. 1-Fail 2-Fail some more 3-Ooh look flips, and more flips 10/10 would jump the base in with my students again Day 16: Jumping the Base with the help of some of my students PS: They also messed up my base when I wasn't paying attention. I deserve that, never turn your back on a 5th grader.

  6. Day 15: Setting up Shop on an Arid World 1-Returned to McFatts III (Arid Planet) with a load of goodies 2-Built a printer 3-Built solar/wind power 4-Built a vehicle bay/truck 5-Wasted a good long time trying to research the crane not realizing you build it AT THE VEHICLE BAY 6-Please feel free to laugh at me and skip to the end on this one and see where I realize I've screwed up. I didn't figure it out until after 6 or so no research netted me no new blueprints. I realized I must have it unlocked.
  7. I absolutely agree. I made the mistake of trying to drive a truck into a cave. Yup, glitched through the terrain and lost that truck for good.
  8. My First proper off world mission. Day 14: Arid Planet Mission
  9. I'm learning vehicles in general are a bit buggy. Just the other day my truck (which was parked peacefully) decided to fly into the sky, separate into 100 pieces, then land again.
  10. Thanks for clarifying, I will pay more attention on my next landing.
  11. Day 13: Moon Research and building our first big boy spaceship Go to the minute 8 mark. Can anyone tell me what the heck that is???
  12. Finally got off planet. Day 12: Moon Mission
  13. First off sorry I have posts all over the place. I'm just getting around to creating a dedicated thread. I will stick all future videos in here. So our journey follows the adventures of Astroneer McFatts and then due to unfortunate circumstances beyond his control McFatts Jr. Day 1: Tethering Day 2: Summiting Mt. McFatts (renamed later MtFatts.) Day 3: Caving, Research, Wrecks and Base Building Day 4: Maiden Rover Mission and how to ruin your base Day 5: How to blow up your base Day 6: The Legend of McFatts Jr. and the search for compound Day 7: Terraf
  14. People have done this, give YouTube a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB3SRf1WEFs
  15. I just did my first Co Op game today. I noticed after my pod landed next to my friends it had no base extension nodes, in fact it was just hovering in the air. skip to the end to see what I'm talking about: Co Op and second habitat module is nodeless
  16. Do you guys have any driving tips for the truck/rover? Things I've learned so far: 1- Hitting "w" or forward will make the vehicle go in the direction you are looking regardless of whether you are steering right or left. 2- It has very little traction 3- Apparently when you enter it the gravity of the entire planet drops to 1/3 of what it was before you entered the vehicle. Feel free to skip but if you want to laugh at my awful driving and point out some tips let me know. Terrible Space Trucking
  17. Cavern. *Facepalm. Ha I was imaging it as a shelter for someone that has no backbone or courage.
  18. Thanks for this. I will give it a look. I have no idea how people make the amazing things in this game that they do.
  19. I'm starting to agree with you. As long as you're down a bit the wind storms aren't too dangerous. Now "craven" I've not heard that used to describe a shelter, that's a new one on me.
  20. I'm pretty new to Astroneer and I'm just starting out and mastering the terraforming tool. Do you guys have any noob tips for walling/roofing ones base? This is what I've managed so far: Terraforming a basic base shelter
  21. Dude those are great. I managed to add dynamiting my own base to my list and starting over. How to blow up your base Starting over
  22. I don't have the habitat researched, and I just blew up my research bench and can't rebuild. I tried making a shuttle but I didn't have the tech to take it off. I'm cutting my losses on this one and starting a new planet. I just got to a new planet that made my last one look like a gold mine. The planet I'm on now feels like it has no compound at all (well very little).
  23. Guys I done screwed up. I built 4 nodes off of my original habitat and can no longer expand. I crafted some dynamite and blew off two sections, but now the habitat nodes won't interact i.e. I can extend off the remaining two open nodes? Is this a bug? I think it may be time to start a new game. Am I missing something? Skip to the end to take a look How to blow up your base then not be able to expand it, but hey there's explosions
