    Spoiler (?) - Having a hard time locating Gateway #6

    Yeah, but RTGs are late game. Until you get the chemistry lab, atmospheric condenser, & all the materials required for making them, you have to rely on other power sources. If we could get unlimited solar before hand, by going to the poles, it would really speed up the process of everything.

    Not that I've ever noticed. The only difference I've ever seen is the direction in which the stars & planets revolve. I wish it were possible to get unlimited sunlight on the poles. That would be nice.

    Portable Oxygenator needs a buff.

    Most of the Astroneer community, myself included, will agree with you on the point that the portable oxygenator takes too much power, & could use a buff. However, you might not know that the most effective way to use a portable oxygenator is not to keep it constantly powered, but to instead only turn it & your small generator on when you are out of O2, then turn them off when your O2 tank is full. That way you are not constantly burning through organic & you get more usage out of each organic you pick up. I've made 1 organic last almost 10 minutes with this method. I hope you find this helpful, until they do something about the issue.

    Stuck in space after death in large shuttle

    How bizarre... 😶... I really don't know what else to say about this.

    About the detritus on all planets

    They've been working on a monster-sized rover for a while now. We can probably expect to see it when we get the extra-large shredder & platforms.

    Astronium dissapers when reloading

    It doesn't just happen upon reloading either. It also happens when you get too far away from the resources you began to dig up. They won't be there when you get back.
  7. A friend & I went down to the core to collect astronium for research. When we began researching it, everything was going fine. My friend, who was hosting, experienced a crash & we reloaded the game. Once we got back in the game, we found that the raw resources we collected, such as latterite & astronium, were unable to be researched. The research chambers simply didn't recognize them, as if nothing was there. So, we tried quitting & reloading the game, hoping it would resolve the the issue. Once we loaded in, the research chambers still didn't recognize them, but the also said that they would yield 0,000 Bytes for 0:00 minutes. Then we tried using fresh resources, & for some reason they worked fine, but the original resources still didn't work. Please let me know if you experienced this weird bug too.

    Portable Oxygenator

    What?

    For real. Why would you waste an aux slot on an O2 tank, when you've got an PO & generator to use. For that matter, why would you waste a slot on an O2 tank at all, when you have an PO. Makes no sense.

    Portable Oxygenator

    I just have the small generator in one aux slot, and the PO in the other. I turn the generator on, then the OP, let my tank fill up, then turn them both off. This usually gets me about 10-15 minutes of O2 per organic.

    😅 Sorry. I have a really tough time picking up on sarcasm. Especially when it's in text form.

    Portable Oxygenator

    Yes, other players can get O2 while the PO is active, if they are standing near you or near tethers connected to you. It takes the same amount of power, but you need to have your generator turned on or have another power source active beforehand for it to last long enough for you & your friends.

    Wuh? What kind of wacky equipment do you use? All of those machines work on every planet. Unless there's a bug I don't know about. The only one of those you mentioned that works differently is the atmospheric condenser, bc not all gasses are available on every planet. But it still works on them to collect the gasses that are available. I think the only planet that might not have a gas to collect is Desolo.
