  1. Hello All, My name is Charlie and I have been playing Astroneer for just over 15 hours now. I would like to make a modest suggestion for a possible feature in the game. It seems unlikely that this would become a priority, but I thought it was an interesting idea and it does not seem like it appears anywhere in this sub, however I may not be searching very well. Anyways, my suggestion is just to add persistence to the debris in Storms. In this way, the rocks may begin to accumulate in predictable ways, for example on what geologists might call the "lee" side of a given slope (diagram here), and not dissimilar to how sand dunes form and migrate. Debris may also begin to fill in holes and caves and the like. This may introduce some challenges as far as interacting with piles of debris and such, as well as who knows what else, and I make my suggestion notwithstanding those difficulties. The idea was a somewhat natural progression for me given my bachelor's in Earth Science/Geology and experiences thinking about how sediment moves around landscapes - as trite as that sounds - and so I just wanted to throw it out there. Thank you for your time in reading this, and in any consideration that you happen give to this unusual idea! All the best, Charlie edit: Added link to diagram

    Printer Resource Grabbing Glitch

    All, Please forgive my naive attempt at including linked text in the OP. I see now that there is a small link button to the left of the Quote tool! Charlie

    Printer Resource Grabbing Glitch

    Pete, That's it exactly. I'm new to the whole uploading to YouTube thing, but I think they should be public videos now
  4. Hello, My name is Charlie and I have been playing Astroneer for about 15 hours now, mostly solo. I love the game and I am very excited to see what is to come! More to the point I would like to report a funny bug that I noticed in the way that the printers take up items from their included storage spots on the sides. Particularly the left side. Oddly enough it does not seem to happen on the right side. This glitch will happen when you have an item selected in the printer with only one of the required items filled in and an unrelated item in the back space of the left side storage. If the required item is then placed in the left side front-most storage, the item in the back will "try to get out of the way" but it cannot, and it will sit there trying indefinitely. I tested it in a couple different situations. The first part can be seen <a href="https://youtu.be/ckAJBljaNos">here</a> , and the second part is uploaded <a href="https://youtu.be/MCdI-FXpyFI">here</a> . I can save you some time though, as the second video is just a test when the generator is selected instead of storage and the glitch is still there. I know this is a funny situation that a user would never really need to work, but it does look a little silly! Hope this was helpful! All the best, Charlie
