    Games won't save on Xbox1

    So the last time my game saved was Thursday afternoon, 3PM and will not save or update since. I started a new game to see if it would save and it did. Saves continued for about 2 hours then no more. I've cleared storage, and conducted complete shutdown and restart. Any other help...is it me of is it Astroneer??

    Thanks Coppery... Finally, somebody else admits to having this problem. So, what did you do to fix the issue?

    Hard drive is only 1/3 full. No problem since I deleted the game and started over.

    Beacon not visible

    I think I like where you're headed with the underground approach. Are you building a road for access? I think I would start a gradual slope toward the beacon then adjust as needed. Just my thought, but I will have to try your approach.

    Appreciate your help Blind; however nothing you recommended effected my situation. I ended up deleting all games, clearing all memory, including sync and was able to play for a few hours last night without any losses. Merry Christmas V/R

    Thanks Blind, I will try these suggestions this afternoon. Who is the "they" when you commented "they've indicated"? Is that someone I can communicate with?

    Games won't save on Xbox1

    Game has been deleted, reinstalled and deleted again. Cache can't have anything left, I feed it and memory storage Xlax. Down to the last straw, 4 days with no ability to save, multiple new games (only save one time and no more). No word from anybody; I think I've been deserted and left to die on Terran and Astroneer staff doesn't care... Next delete will be the final delete with no hope of ever resurrecting the game. Anybody??HELP ME Please, Anybody

    Games won't save on Xbox1

    Okay it's not me. I've repeatedly cleared the cache and memory storage along with multiple reboots and still not able to save game progress. I even started the new Tech Test game and was able to save 1 time but no more. Maybe the management of Astroneer doesn't want Xbox players until after Feb 6 (that maybe to long to wait) and then how can I be sure this issue will be corrected in version 1.0? Oh, BTW this is not the first time I've had Xbox save problems related to this game (been playing since pre-alpha) and several time this problem arises without any acknowledgement from Astroneer staff that they have problem. Who else is having this problem?

    Okay, new game successfully save for two hours and now it will not save progress. I sure hope version 1.0 doesn't have these problems; I'm the only supporter you have left in the dljones household.

    Okay, so I can start a new game but the old game will not update since yesterday around 3 PM. I've cleared local storage, etc on my xbox and completed shut down and restart procedures with no success.

    Noob in Need

    Sounds like your game is working properly under the current version. Your looking at videos from the older versions of the game. The X in the terrain tool tells you that you have no soil to work with. First, you need a canister to store soil, then you need to dig to get the soil; when you have soil in the canister, you can start building.
  13. I've been clearing Storage under Settings (is that clearing the cache?) Then I turn Xbox back on so I power off, again under Settings. Seems like a lot of hassle but so far it is working for me. Haven't been able to play since the 9.0 release, maybe this problem has been corrected.

    Update 0.8.0 - June 14th, 2018

    Thanks Shadow. I'll give it a try.

    Update 0.8.0 - June 14th, 2018

    Though it may not work in all cases, try the following; With the console on, hold the power button for 10 seconds and wait for it to shut down. Unplug the console for at least 20 seconds. After plugging back in, turn on the console and allow it a little time, then start your game. Please let us know if this doesn't work! I've shut it down after every astroneer update since around 0.6 and haven't had saving issues since then. We've also seen at least one report that clearing Blu-ray persistent storage via the settings menu may solve some issues, though that was related to crashing, I think. Okay, was able to save for one day only and back to the same situation. Unable to save...Any more suggestions? Am I the only person with this problem?

    After several attempts and several combinations, something finally worked. Thanks for the help.

    Update 0.8.0 - June 14th, 2018

    I am still unable to save my progress on xbox 1, version 8.0. I am able to continue progressing only if I do not exit the game when turning off the xbox; however, Astroneer is not the only game played on my xbox. As soon as I exit Astroneer, all progress is lost and I'm back to where I started from, or the other option "start a new game". Please reveal the secret to saving.

    Extra Large Storage

    The extra large storage is totally useless. I created one on top of a large shuttle and have been unable to attach anything to is. X-box version 6.8.

    Medium Shuttle

    My shuttle began to shake, vibrate, bounce uncontrollably until it finally floated away. Had a similar problem with the large rover during the pre-alpha era. X-box 6.8 version.

    I can't figure out how to use the fabricator? xbox

    Make sure you have a clear spot for the fabricator to place the item into. Pink means the location is not clear and the fabricator will not function (pink bad, blue good). At least that is the way I remember it; if I'm wrong someone will correct me.
  21. Would it be possible to make the leveling tool adjustable? Would be nice to set the tool to a desired angle. Just my thoughts.

    Terrain Leveling Tool Request

    Thanks 1177, I'll try that, but still hoping for a "set it and go" adjustable.
  23. Donald Jones

    Terrain Leveling Tool Request

    Thanks. Your point is well taken; however, you can't always find the desired surface angle and creating that angle is time consuming. Further, an adjustable angle would help when building walls. Preference would be an adjustment on the leveling tool.

    How to make a leveled ground surface?

    Now that I've worked with the tool I see what you mean about easier travel, but walls and shelves; you have more time for the game than me. I'm just hoping for solar panels and batteries.

    How to make a leveled ground surface?

    Got it! I haven't learned the finer techniques of leveling and thought maybe it was new mod.
