    " SpaceRail " ( Idea Expanded )

    this idea is really great but i would like to add a danger factor to this idea because it is just too powerful (the hover platform as Lithium calls it, should have a flaw that is ... well annoying this flaw could be something to do with the storms... lets say that the hover platform gets caught in a storm, the hover platform will be derailed since it is not tied down to anything, now yeah you could just go through the trouble of digging a tunnel through the ground to get to your destination but it should not be so easy as to just slap a hover platform down on a rail system and there is no problems, it is too op..... just like with the rover or even the trucks. the storm moves them around...... well since the hover platform is not bolted down and has no traction it is able to be pushed around easily so this is only common sense....) ok now the basic's of my idea think of a air hockey puck on a air hockey table, if you take a leaf blower turn it on and point it at the air hockey puck said puck will move fast away from the blower because it is floating a bit off of the air hockey table.... now if you take the same puck and place it on concrete and do the same to it, it will move but you would of had to move the blower closer to the puck because the puck now had traction from being on rough jagged terrain..... unless you placed it on smooth polished concrete then it might have the same effect because of lack of traction.....
  2. i have a wonderful idea for travel inside of tunnels moving items in and out of them (almost like a mag train that can be built at a vehicle station) and this is a picture of a mag train (a train that hovers above the tracks) this type of thing can be used for easily getting from base to base or even underground in the tunnels (you can try to make a new add-on for the rover (maybe called a magnet crane or industrial crane) it can be used to pick up large items such as a train segment and place it on the track) here is a video of a n64 game that has a hover train or mag train (im using this video as a example) but yeah it was just a idea that i needed to get out of my system it won't get out of my head otherwise.

    Idea for the tethers

    that video made me have a wonderful idea for travel inside of tunnels moving items in and out of them (almost like a mag train that can be built at a vehicle station) and this is a picture of a mag train (a train that hovers above the tracks) this type of thing can be used for easily getting from base to base or even underground in the tunnels (you can try to make a new add-on for the rover (maybe called a magnet crane or industrial crane) it can be used to pick up large items such as a train segment and place it on the track) here is a video of a n64 game that has a hover train or mag train (im using this video as a example) but yeah it was just a idea that i needed to get out of my system it won't get out of my head otherwise.

    Idea for the tethers

    i read Artimitius's idea about using tethers as a type of item transport system and yeah that is a wonderful idea but it may be a good idea to try and make a advanced tether that can be made using copper that can do what he is saying, but the advanced tether can connect to a rover or truck and attach the items to the truck (kinda like a smart system and when the truck is full the advanced tethers lose the blue color and turn red signaling that the truck is full and it also can't pick up any more materials)

    IDEA FOR CRAFTING

    okay the idea that i had was going more for the crafting ,you can make 2 medium storage's and when those 2 medium storage's are attached to a platform that has no chosen machine (such as the smelter or the research station) it opens up a larger crafting recipe (instead of using 2 material or 2 slots you are using 16 material or 16 slots to craft something new) like if you where going to start building habitats you can do so by building a large printer..... and due to you using 2 medium storage's both of those medium storage's is used in the crafting recipe, maybe a larger structure is left standing in the place of the platform that once held these materials (such as a large printer for building habitats and bio-domes maybe some odd farming building for mass farming the spikers) .... well that is my idea, i hope you like it. please let me know what you think sincerely: Samuel Athanas

    Should I buy Astroneer?

    yes coop has its bugs i will agree with that but it is still playable none the less

    Should I buy Astroneer?

    this game is slowly evolving (i have been playing it for a few months now and in this most recent update more things has been added to the game) so no this game is far from dying and i would strongly advise buying it before the price for this game goes up because all great games eventually up the price
  8. ok i don't know if it is a bug or not but is the vehicles meant to roll away during a storm because if it is then... you need to make some form of anchor, maybe a item kinda like the waypoint marker with how it locks itself to the ground, but a vehicle can attach to it and won't come untied from it unless manually untied.

    idea for the vehicles

    now that we have the work-light maybe we can now have a floodlight made by the medium printer that can have light spread 5 times the distance the work-light can, but can only be connected to the base and vehicles so we have the ability to have light in the darkest of caves ...... it would be awesome if said floodlight had a power bank so the power would last long enough for the night to pass and the light shines once more and yes i do take the habitat and make a base underground it is possible to pump power to the base from the surface down underground
  10. I had an idea that is theoretically possible given by the facts that are already present today in spaceships that are sent up in orbit, but are also used in some Vehicles today. here is a video of what i mean... i also have another video i uploaded to youtube (below the video explaining what gyroscopes do and how they can be used in this application) the reason for the second video is because it wasn't allowing me to upload a simple picture i have watched a few youtubers play astroneer and have one issue with the game... the vehicles always tip over even if you hit a small rock they flip out of controll so i was thinking that maybe there would be a way that you can have a mod for the vehicles that you can attach to it so it is not flipping over here is a picture i drew in paint of what i mean ..... or not (i tried to upload a picture and it is saying i can't upload the pic.... error -200 or something on that nature).... well it seems i can't upload a video to this for the same reason.... ok i uploaded a video to youtube and here is that video \/ \/ \/ please reply back i would love to hear some input about the idea
