    In search of new challenges

    Update 0.6.5 - March 15th, 2018

    Same here. The game has helped with anxiety for me. Its very relaxing. I like exploring barren because there are no storms

    Update 0.6.5 - March 15th, 2018

    This has happened with a lot of major studios. They try to adhere to a strict schedule and even being behind a few days, people go nuts... You have all these little kids playing who swear off the game and never want to play again... Tons of youtubers who want to abandon it altogether. Its insane. Most of people complaining have never coded anything in their life and have no idea how hard it is to find and fix a bug. They just want what they want, and they want it yesterday. Like you, I'm excited every time I see the game has been updated. This game has a bright future and I'm enjoying just being a part of their journey. And for my part, its been well worth whatever it was I originally paid for it. I've gotten hours and hours and hours of fun out of it.

    I swear to god its true. I've had part of my rover sunken in... picked up the light, and it bounces right out above the ground. Then you can place them back on the vehicle.

    Update 0.6.5 - March 15th, 2018

    Is there a worklight on the rear end? They are quite heavy when you first start... and you pick them up and put them back and and it'll bounce right out.

    New mode for soil digging tool

    i'd like to actually see roads, and maybe even rails. And way in the future maybe even structures. Would be nice to be able to go inside and work while a storm is raging outside or to build a warehouse

    And I'm not saying its your specs. I'm saying there must be something else wrong. A driver... something. When others on lower end machines CAN run it ok, and you cant... its usually not the game. That is all I was trying to say. Plus .... fresh installs always feel good and clean I have learned that putting things on the front makes it a lot worse. I wanted to put "headlights" on mine

    Update 0.6.5 - March 15th, 2018

    Yep. I just noticed the hotfix. But still, I don't think any double socket items have had connections.... so I was partially right LOL

    Update 0.6.5 - March 15th, 2018

    Yeah they do. I just put a worklight down before writing this and it still has connectors. AFAIK wind turbines and solar panels (Or any two socket items) have never had standalone connections. But workslights and single socket items do.

    That isn't how game development works. And a lot of this may be debugging code in the game that makes it choppy... but I read your posts about your own experienecs. I would suggest you start with a fresh install of Windows or whatever OS youäre using because obviously you're doing something wrong. I'm on a medium range laptop and it plays just fine. Just a few frame drops occasionally like during storms but otherwise its fine.

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    Who said there was an update today? Have i missed something?
  13. It like when a spider is in your house.... you just burn it down, or move
  14. Yes. I've been watchin youtubers play this and they're building these massive power links and removing their old tethers and I keep thinking... you're going to need oxygen!

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    Honestly... I'd like to see some options in the menus to disable certain things... like storms.

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    My starting base has the bigger one, but all other settlements I made dont. Starting a new game though.... I always get the bigger habitat. Yeah I noticed that too.

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    Well the platforms are really nice and the ability to move things around. But the progression of things needed to craft things would be a bit of a challenge for new players, I must agree there. I got the hang of it quickly but thats because I spend ungodly amounts of time playing I'm not understanding the need for a small fabricator just to make a bigger one. I'd also like to see the ability to repack the base components and move your base if you want... including the original habitat.

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    I've noticed that batteries on rovers no longer work unless they are connected to the front or back... so no batteries on storage work. A lesson in manners is what you need. Maybe you don't understand that this is a work in progress. It's also the best update so far. This has added to the game what many of us couldn't understand why wasn't already in it. -- If you dont like the game, don't play it. Go write your own... oh thats right, you probably cant because you have no idea how coding a game works. f off.

    The "Basebuilding Update" - February 22nd, 2018

    My rovers try to bury their front in into the ground when I exit them LOL. I think normally, the game tries to land near the vehicle bay... since the game was updated, your old save had to be deconstructed into boxes... that means that the vehicle bay is boxed up and so you can land at the next drop spot and you'll have to unbox your base and set it up again then when you land again, you'll be able to land near your base. You should read the forum more about how the old game saves were to be handled in this upgrade before going off on a rant about how horrible the game is now. This is a MAJOR update to the core of the game... You should try being a bit more understanding.

    Is there a way to repackage things into boxes?

    Question before buy

    Sounds like you're looking for a finished game, so this may not be for you. But you are missing a lot by taking that stance. Seems foolish to me.

    No, he said he tested a glitch and then acted bummed because it messed up his game. That was my point.

    PS4 Release?

    Why? What difference does it make to you whether its on other platforms or not? That seems rather silly.

    Vehicle merged with floor

    Oh you're right. I didn't notice that it was the dark gray terrain. That is potentially terrifying if you had a huge rover full of supplies.

    So you did something you weren't supposed to do, and you screwed up your game. Not sure that counts as a bug My guess would be you've simply borked your game and there is no real way to recover it.
