    Road signs

    Sadly, customizable signs with text probably won't happen, since someone could write profanity. I am guessing this could impact the game's rating, which they want to keep at 'Everyone.'
  2. I miss the massive cave systems from EA, too. There was something fun about going down there and following them for as long and far as possible. Leaving a trail of "fingers" created by the terrain tool to point you back to the way you came. The new caves, while spectacular in appearance, are just TOO big and don't really guide you anywhere. It's no different than exploring the surface. As for being "too easy" with all the new tools, just make it a point to not use them. You aren't forced to use the "drill on a rover" technique. I can see why the game would be very boring if it was just "alright, here I am. Let's do this in 2 hours." Astroneer is self directed. And if you want to "finish" in 2 hours, then go for it.

    Help the ground ate my Zebra

    It is disappointing to lose an item like that, but zebra balls are uncommon and not that rare. Look for another and you'll probably fine one. They're on all the planets. You might even find one of the other variants.
  4. Another option I've found to "fix" this is to go near a gateway chamber and have that music loop start. Then leave the area and the "normal" music starts again.

    Ghost Astronaut?

    If you hover the mouse cursor over the Astroneer, does it show a name? Is it a Steam friend joining your game without your knowledge?

    Purple Gateway question

    Large rover, 8 RTGs on the rover, drive to each gateway chamber. Plug rover in.

    Used last Probe Scanner - Didn't interact with it

    Take a beacon with you when hunting for wabbits. I mean satellites. Drop the beacon at the satellite. Now you can find it later. You can drag them around with a winch, too. But, be prepared for a lot of recalcitrant behavior from the physics engine....

    Bring back the forests from the trailer!

    I keep forgetting to put up screenies of my gardens. Will try to do so tonight.
  9. You are not the only one. I have had this happen, too. Same Steam version. With normal research pods. Most annoyingly, it was the 12K+ ones from Atrox's core. Missed out on 24K+ bytes! Save/quite/reload did not fix it, either. Overall byte count did not increase until those two pods were complete, and I started another set of pods.

    Bring back the forests from the trailer!

    Dig up the red ones in caves on Atrox and a seed might drop. Take that/those seed(s) back to Sylva and plant it/them. The blue ones are on the surface of Atrox, and also occasionally drop seeds that you can re-plant. Seeds are different from the research samples that drop, and rarer. Re-planted spewflowers are docile, and will not attack. They don't have the beautiful "opening" animation seen in the trailer, though.

    add name BEACON

    I really want custom beacons, myself. I suspect, though, that customized text may not be an option due to the multi-player experience, which can then lead to ratings concerns. That is, someone decides to use profanity in a beacon name. But, I still want them!
  12. Now you just need a "NO SMOKING" sign....

    Solar Panels not generating energy

    First and foremost, is there sun? If you're on Atrox, the sun levels there are low. If on Desolo, the daylight hours are very short (as are the nighttime hours). Are you at one of the poles of the planet? It could be there is no direct sunlight since the sun is not high enough in the sky. Are they underground? I know this sounds stupid to ask, but it had to be asked. Obviously, they won't work (correctly) underground. Terrain matters. If you're next to a mountain, its shadow can impact light availability to a panel. Same with gateway chambers. Do the medium panels open up or remain closed? If closed, they are not receiving enough light to activate. Are the small and medium panels properly attached to the platform(s)? Make sure you the rubber skirt on the bottom of the medium panel is not present, and that you can't see the cable connections on the small arrays.

    Large Rover Attachment Issue

    That happens to me, as well. Every reload of the game my large rover train of four large rovers experience this. Sometimes just getting near the rover causes them to correct themselves, but other times I have to take action. Simply disconnecting and reconnecting any other rover in the train fixes it. If it is the ONLY rover (as shown by the OP), bring another object with a cable connector on it over to the rover. (Come over to rover, my rover red rover?) You should be able to connect that object's cable to the rover and voila, they'll flip back out the right way. Be prepared for the objects to be flung away. Your mileage may vary.
  15. Instead of collecting research pods, I've always though harvesting X number of regenerating research should award an achievement named "Sniffed the roses." The second one isn't possible. You can't get from one planet to another without use of a shuttle or gateway. The other planets you see in the sky are just visual phantoms or stand-ins for the "real" planets that are vertically stacked on top of each other and invisible. Maybe an achievement for reaching and doing something at a certain altitude?
