    We need constellations.

    There's a band of stars above the equator, I think that's as good as celestial navigation is going to get in the game. You've got that and a compass, happy days. The devs have hinted that more advanced navigation facilities will be available in the next year.

    Controls on consoles

    They plan to, for Xbox at least, but have given no further detail.
  3. Try using a platform or the same type of power source, like all batteries. So just have 30+ fully charged batteries with no power source attached. Between the vehicle battery and the others, along with the drain from the gateway, the power source gets confused where it's charge should go. I believe putting that large storage and medium silo with everything attached on a large platform would also work, but I can't remember.
  4. No, but it does need a constant large power supply. You should connect your platforms together. You'd need 3 medium solar panels at full capacity to run the condenser.

    This just clicked in my brain

    Nothing in the game suggests Astroneers are mortal organic beings. It is evident in the game that only oxygen and power are required to sustain an Astroneer. It could also be that the suit provides ample food for the organic lifeform using a trickle-charged, in-suit replication system. Or the tiny amount of food needed to maintain life for even an extended period has been shrunk using Exo technology and stored out of sight. Whatever the various descriptions of this game might suggest, it's not a survival game beyond minor tethering requirements, and another resource to manage would be distracting and pointless. The devs have pretty much said as much.
  6. Maybe, like, find a way to stop the recent surge in crap...

    Navigation Suggestions!

    The North Pole is always the node at the (front) right, as it is what you orbit a planet in a shuttle. There's a pic on this wiki page.

    Navigation Suggestions!

    The compass isn't broken. Some of your confusion may be in assuming that the node on top of the odd stone is the North Pole...

    Have you activated one of the surface chambers? That should drop the shield...

    Reboot your PlayStation.

    No oxygen consumed while warping

    Lemme just make a note of that... ✏️🗒️ Also, oxygen tank. You'd struggle to deplete that in a couple of jumps. Or just go back to the core if you're running low. Or use a filter. Or a portable o2 generator. Or deploy a tractor at every warp point.

    Mouse and keyboard support (xbox)

    It's on the 'to do' list. No ETA, but they've mentioned implementing it a few times.

    Patch 1.9.8 - January 24th, 2020

    The only way is to have your game sync to a Windows 10 version and get it from there.

    Patch 1.9.8 - January 24th, 2020

    They usually put the MS version through cert and get the green light before publishing it on both Steam and MS. They've previously held off pushing the Steam version until MS roll-out has started. Looks like MS didn't get it done Friday afternoon, so it became a Monday morning job.

    Impossible de trouver du walformite

    As noted above, not every material is on every planet. Comme indiqué ci-dessus, tous les matériaux ne se trouvent pas sur chaque planète.

    The Holiday Update - December 16th, 2019

    Yup. Twitter, a few days ago.
  17. This post addresses firewall issues, most likely the cause of your issue. The customisation service is separate from other parts of the game, and requires a connection to the game's background servers. Your progress is recorded on your account, so when the game goes online you'll get the suits and colours you've unlocked.

    They have plenty of money, more than enough. They know MP isn't where it should be, especially on consoles. Servers are supposed to be the solution, and it's been that way for a long time. They're not putting a date on servers, but the expectation is that they will be available in the first half of the year. It's worth noting that they'll be back to work in the coming week so more info may be available soon. The reason you're not getting specific responses is that everyone has trouble with multiplayer, and as you noted it's always been that way.
  19. Indeed, as stated in the patch notes, using Creative permanently disables achievements on the active save. The thinking is that even if you use it briefly, you could spawn-in items that will get you the achievements quickly.
  20. They have said that if storms are coming back, they'd likely be different on each planet, and would probably be part of a weather system.
  21. I think you're playing the wrong game if you want to play a 1st person shooter.

    PS4 splitscreen

    It will not.
