  1. And I keep telling myself: I miss Astroneer's music and happy colors! NMS is a lot of fun. Its music is not too shabby, in fact, one track, in particular, is meant to resemble the Blade Runner soundtrack. But still, it's not as good as Astroneer's (IMO). Nor the music of Sid Acharya for that matter! There is much to be said for each of these games, but I just wanted to share this. This is not meant to start a debacle about which game is better.
  2. https://astroneer.gamepedia.com/Small_Camera In the wiki it says you can share with friends, it just doesn't say how. Has anyone tried it?

    How to share photos shot with the new Small Camera?

    I was afraid you would say that That very much defeats the whole purpose of having an actual camera in the game. We have been sharing screenshots since day 1. Oh well! Thanks for confirming it though

    How to make a Dedicated Power Supply Kit?

    This is great! I am working on making my 1st DPS Kit, almost done. Thanks for sharing AT DPC
  5. If you were watching Youtube videos for a very gender-neutral kind of video game, like Astroneer for instance. Would you care if: It was narrated by the voice of a young woman? Or, would you prefer that of a young man? Or it would not make a difference to you? Thanks in advance guys/galsDPC
  6. It used to be in /Steam/steam-lib/steamapps/compatdata/... etc etc But now there's no Steam folder there anymore. The directory where these files were saved was called: "savegames". I tried searching with that directory name in the main Astroneer directory. This is where you are brought when you select Browse Local Files. Where could it be now? Thanks guys

    Is this the new way for Resource gathering?

    It's not exactly an elegant design, but it works. It is definitely a considerable improvement compared to the smaller amounts of things we could transport. So I won't complain

    How can you tell who's joined your game?

    Good ones. Thank you CM and KP DPC
  9. There are a few signs that would suggest there's someone in my game, like the fact that I can feel the game slowing down for a moment and showing a sign saying: "saving game" (or something like that), which happens when one boards on a vehicle or goes inside the habitat. Also at a random time it showed: "Researching Large Shredder", I guess he was making a Large Shredder (?) But I was not in Silva and I couldn't just stop what I was doing and go check. Is there a way I can confirm that someone had joined? And who that is maybe? Thanks guys DPC
  10. Each of these copies are separate purchases. I am starting to suspect this is not possible, at least when bought from the Windows 10 Store. I can see the other account via the Xbox program, but I don't see usual "Join game" option for either of us Has anyone done this? Thanks
  11. I hate to differ, but... Astroneers installed via Steam cannot play with those installed via Windows 10/MS Store. This has been the case for either always, or quite some time at least. In fact, I just tried moments ago to confirm it. Furthermore that's precisely the reason why my "third purchase" of Astroneer was via Steam, so that I could play with my friend that had a copy from Steam (because the Multiplayer mode was/is way more reliable that way). Nevertheless, I kept the copies I've got from the MS Store. And now that my both PCs are capable of running the game I thought I would try them. So I thought since both are from the MS Store that means that we can connect via the Xbox program (as I used to do with my friend). But like I said, we can't.
  12. I thought that Multiplayer tab was to be used only with the System Era servers...
  13. Right, I did try that. But her name shows as "Not joinable" (something like that).
  14. Ok, it sounds promising. So, how do you do it?
  15. I remember have done this before with a friend (in different location). And once we were both ready, we were able to see that one could join the other's game by going to the profile page of the friend. There was a circle saying that he could be joint. However now with my daughter's computer I although I can see her in my friends list, and we joint the same party, I still cannot see any indication of joining a game.
  16. 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
  17. You know, that purple interface you get when pressing F on the Odd Stone. Thanks guys
  18. Thanks for confirming that Buddha (Aus)
  19. LOL - I was hoping you had discovered a new way to automate that process 😁 Thanks for sharing though
  20. That was awesome Carto! What do you mean by "farming dynamite"? Is there and actual way of automating the process of making them? Like farming the Research plants?
  21. Unless I'm going blind, but I did not find them in the Resources chart. I only found one: Quartz. Could I have a hint on this? Thanks
  22. Silly me! Of course! Soon after I posted it, it dawned on me. Thank you all for confirming it! DPC
  23. I hope this is not rude to ask here in these forums. DPC
