    game now impossible to do anything

    @Wary Explorer - I find that making a complete tool of oneself, every now-and-again, is good for the spirit. Remember, just now-and-again.

    game now impossible to do anything

    @nerb - it is really easy to work out everything just by pressing Q or E.

    A mapping function please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wouldn't you think a 'map' function would be a very basic thing? Either that or being able to attach information to the beacons would be nice.
  4. I would have thought this would have been added a while ago...
  5. Brilliant idea! Without adding anything to the game it would look extra-cool, but drilling for stuff would be great fun.

    Vehicle Compass

    The best idea I have read today! I have a pretty good sense of direction, but even I get lost (often). Why isn't there a GPS already?

    Enclosed 3 Seats facing wrong way

    ...is it not a just an extra-safe feature?

    Building Concept

    Some form of base customisation would be very cool indeed. Domes would be good, but cylindrical, or even inflatable, units would be very nice. If you have ever seen KSP (Kerbal Space Programme) there are loads of base-building options that allow you to make some really nice looking bases, but require very few 'parts'. I just read another thread that suggested automated systems - combining both would be very productive. You could also have some really nice models! Failing this happening just wait until modders start messing about...

    Crafting expansion and automation

    ...I love the ideas, but my favourite is the idea of automated excavators. Genius.

    Backpack Upgrade

    There is...battery and oxygen tank.

    Even if the dead astroneer had a name-tag... Even when sailing ships were exploring uncharted seas they kept logs of everything they saw. Go and have a look at the logs kept by 19th century Lighthouse keepers. How about the ability to write your own? A great find for future players. I would like to have seen some data on the stuff you research. Just for the geekiness of it.

    Descriptions in The Research Catalog

    Nice one. I mean, what the bloody hell do I need fireworks for?

    Landing zones on planets should all be flat

    A very well observed point! However, what if there wasn't sufficient 'flat' ground generated? You could have a deployable landing structure...

    Protection net on Arid

    ...just build your base in a cave. If you can't find one...make one. Those spikey things give me a pain in the Mick Jones.

    @Ben - a great idea. I get lost all the time...especially when you break through into parts you have already explored. Why not just use the same way you can get in/out of a maze - always place your tethers on the right. tToGG has some perfect solutions. I have cut markings into walls, mountain sides, etc. The idea for a 'fork' is brilliant! When you mention Beacons then you bring me to what I want: beacons that you can tag with text.
