  1. I hope this is not rude to ask here in these forums. DPC
  2. After trying to find it in single-player, and another try in multiplayer (2), and not finding it, I took off to the atmosphere to go round the planet and see if I could see it that way. I did! Finally! On each of the found gateways I put a coloured beacon. As you can see in the image, the missing gateway is at the top, right between the Green-beacon gateway (left), and the Orange-beacon gateway (right). Now, in terms of coordinates, if I were to be at either one of these found gateways (Green or Orange), in what direction am I supposed to go to find the missing one? I know that we have a compass. In this image, the missing gateway appears at the top, and the Orange beacon on the right. That would be North, and East respectively. The problem is that the planet is constantly moving, so what was North and East, won't stay N & E. Any ideas? Thanks guys DPC

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

    Btw, I believe I heard from someone's video that finding one Gateway is enough to unlock the Core and move on. I just thought it would be more fun to make it an adventure to find them all anyway

    That was right! I just picked West and went until I found it. Thanks again

    I figured I wasn't the only one LOL Would you mind taking a screenshot of your "Directional Indicator" and show it here? It sounds like a great idea
  7. Just to confirm it, it did work!
  8. I had just realized that we can run Astroneer in Linux with Steam Play. Except by now I had already started and done quite a bit in a game from Windows 10 DPC

    So just to add to what Solar Lord and I said before: I was just reading that Proton is the main tool used by Steam Play. Everything said before is still correct though.

    How to at least double your cargo?

    Lol! You've got me! I totally agree! I must have found it from Desolo, where I had been prior to Glacio. I like your idea of burying unwanted things I agree. If you have the Soil Centrifuge. Otherwise, if you are already standing in front of a large deposit of Graphite, and you already know you want it for Packagers, then... might as well! But to each its own
  11. Please check this simple page I just published. I would love to hear comments. You can either send them privately to me using the form at the bottom, or put them here. Thanks in advance guys

    How to at least double your cargo?

    Hi njord8472! The Packagers have vertical yellow bands before used. Once used, they are replaced by the regular white and blue crates you get from the 3D Printers. You can see one of these crates in the large image, right of the shuttle, in front of the Large Wind Turbine, on the floor. It's a small crate. As for the 2nd image with the Packagers, they are not used yet. That's precisely why they can stick (like dynamites). The 1st screenshot, I took it before I used those Packagers you see sitting on top of the Research Items. I did not want to commit to using them just then. Cheers!

    How do I get the linux version?

    I play it in Linux Mint 19. I have done it since prior to Astroneer 1.0. For a couple of months now. Steam introduced an adaptation of their own of Play Linux (an emulator I believe). It's at the bottom of your Steam Settings page. If you turn it on, it'll allow you to install and play Astroneer in Linux. You'll have to restart Steam. Is that simple. I must say, after the Astroneer big update, I was forced to lower the resolution and a few Graphics settings for it to run acceptably. I admit though, I haven't looked much into this issue. So for all I know, there might be something you could do to make it run almost as it does in Windows. Good luck!

    I Made Astroneer Some More Space Music

    I think you'll like being part of that list even more once you listen to the work of these artists You'll find them all in YouTube of course. As for Cliff M., I strongly recommend the soundtrack he composed for Solaris (George Clooney). Which incidentally goes so well with the movie. Funny thing is, most of the movie is filmed in a space station (no pun intended, just a mere coincidence). As for Brian Eno, I believe he's known to be the FATHER of Ambient music. So, yeah, he's a big deal.
  15. Like Dynamite, and now the Packager. Is there anything else? DPC
  16. I had just added it to my list of useful Astroneer links! Thank you Eoghan DPC

    I Made Astroneer Some More Space Music

    Congratulations Sidapede. This is a very very nice album! I have heard it a couple times (while playing), and I totally love it. So far my favourite is NASA, but I want to listen to it more times to appreciate it better. Thank you so much for sharing it You are quite an accomplished artist.
  22. That's great news! I'll use your command line to find them in Linux. But in Windows 10 I went to Steam, then right-click on the game name, choose Properties, then Local Files tab, then Browse Local Files button. But there I only see the files you see in the attached image.
  23. Yes, I know, I know! I was too excited to check that I had another thruster to come back If someone else were to join me, would he/she arrive to Silva or Glacio? DPC

    Disappointed

    Tell me about! I was visiting the Desolo moon for the 1st time since the 1.0 update. I was in a large cave, large enough to easily get lost. Then all of a sudden something made me jump to the next cave level up, I had no idea where I was! I had to improvise a tunnel up to the surface asap before I suffocated. Luckily I made it up in time. But yeah, that was not much fun. Not the same type of bug, but in another occasion my tractor started sinking as in moving sands along with the other 2 trailers. I almost lost them. But I ended up deep under, in a cave. I was just happy I didn't have to loose the vehicles.
