  1. Adam Bromell, Let's Make Some Game Content, January 6th, 2017 (
  2. Usually, when the Astroneer gets stuck somewhere, you can try to move, run, jump for a while, and it will wiggle free eventually. If this does not happen in your case, then your only option is to let the Astroneer die to have it respawn at a different location. But without access to dynamite, I don't know how to accomplish this, I am afraid. I assume that your dad's Astroneer is still tethered to the shuttle and is supplied with oxygen, so that it can't die. I guess using the TAB key to enter the shuttle again and lift off does not work either.
  3. You can only research objects that have a description text "Unknown Research" attached to them. The balls do not have that description, so you can't research them.
  4. It's working for me exactly like this since patch 190 already. The analyzer works as intended with the only exception of not showing the analyzed color. There is a way, but it is inconvenient: Attach the analyzer to the terrain tool and hold down either the CTRL or the ALT key. The tool's reticle will then show the flattening or arrow indicator in the color that will be applied by the analyzer.
  5. The correct spelling should be Ammonum. Because other elements in the game use the same spelling, like Titanum, Lithum, and Aluminum.
  6. What are the hardware specifications of your computer? Especially the graphics hardware is of interest here. Have you updated your graphics driver software?
  7. Yeah. Indeed, storms are serious business now (at least on Terran, haven't been to other planets since the patch). Rovers are pushed away by the wind, and you can easily spend all your available power while trying to steer against it. Also, storms reach down into caves now, with the only difference that there are no rocks flying around...
  8. See also the related bug reports in these threads:
  9. I also noticed that now you can die from being crushed by your rover when leaving it. But for me, this only ever happens when I exit the rover while it is still moving. When I completely stop before exiting a rover, then I have yet to see that crushing to death happen.
  10. I can confirm that this is still possible with patch 196. When any of the slots on the terrain tool is occupied, then you are able to attach dynamite and detonate it. As a result, the terrain tool is effectively removed from the game. However, for me, the terrain tool was only removed when the explosion happened while the terrain tool was still shown enlarged on the backpack screen. When I closed the backpack after hitting the detonate button, then the Astroneer respawned with the terrain tool.
  11. Summary: 196 - Steam - Idle animations do not play Description: The animations that used to play when you do not move your Astroneer for some time do not play any more. Sometimes, I observe the start of an idle animation for a split second, but then it immediately goes back to the default standing animation. However, I can hear the sound effects that go along with those idle animations, but the animation itself does not play. I observed this bug in a game created after the release of patch 196 with the "normal" Astroneer (the right-most one on the start screen's space station), and with the "bubble suit" Astroneer in an older saved game. I haven't checked with any of the other two Astroneer types. Platform: Steam Version / Build Number: 196 Specifications: OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_ldr.161011-0600) CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E8400 3GHz (2 CPUs) GPU: AMD Radeon HD7750 1GB RAM: 8GB Drive: ST1000DM003-1CH162 ATA Device 850GB (NTFS) I just found that this issue has already been reported for XBox One:
  12. You could probably make that saved game functional again with the help of another player: That other player could remove the tree by attaching dynamite to it and blowing it up. Your dad's Astroneer will most likely get killed by the explosion, too. But he will be able to continue playing that saved game afterwards. This rescue operation could become quite an adventure: Firstly, you must have researched dynamite. Furthermore, the rescuing player can not use the same landing site that your dad is stuck at. So you must choose another landing site nearby and be able to reach your dad's site from there. Either have enough oxygen tanks with you, use thethers all the way, or build a vehicle bay and a rover to get there.
  13. Summary: 196 - Steam - Game crashes whenever I try to enter the options menu Description: When I open the game menu and then select "Options", the game reproducibly crashes for me. It does not happen immediately but with a little delay after selecting "Options". Also, the graphics driver (Radeon Crimson 17.4.4) reports a reset when the crash happens. It does not matter if I access the game menu from the save select screen, or from within a loaded game. In both cases the crash occurs. Platform: Steam Version / Build Number: 196 Specifications: OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_ldr.161011-0600) CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E8400 3GHz (2 CPUs) GPU: AMD Radeon HD7750 1GB RAM: 8GB Drive: ST1000DM003-1CH162 ATA Device 850GB (NTFS)
  14. In the game menu, have you tried to reset the controls settings to the defaults?
  15. Patch notes being more extensive is much appreciated. Thank you.
