    My Save Game Is.....

    We already have that augment, it's an Inhibitor Mod. It is somewhat limited in the depth it will collect resources, but that seems reasonable to me if you're not deforming any terrain to get the resources. I'm not sure what, if any, impact that would have on performance at all.

    Would you buy merch?

    @The Touch of Grey Gamer, I hear you, you have money and you're willing to spend it. Now people on Discord are reading your furniture merch ideas and hoping you'll join there. Way to go!! I genuinely hope that one day the market for the Astroneer game and merchandise is so big that they can spend the time and effort making end-table sized crates that I can buy on the internet...among other things. Some of the licensed products available for Minecraft are ๐ŸŒ B A N A N A S!! ๐ŸŒ I hope Astroneer gets to that level!! The Costumes are Party City are a good start, I am hoping I can convince my nephew to be Bubbles so I can get the Palette Code that comes with that purchase. ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Would you buy merch?

    Oh my god @The Touch of Grey Gamer, I read this leaving work earlier without watching the video assuming it was the very early vlog when Spencer brings in the 3D print of EXO Suit...but you want heccin furniture!! You're not after the average bloke's merchandise, aye? ๐Ÿ˜‚ The rest of this ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘Œ magnifico!!
  4. SES Dev Joe has been showing off some merchandise that's going to be available at PAX West. Check out this fresh blog post for more info about PAX. At past shows, items have been exclusive to the show, so if you wanted the item or the palette code, you HAD to go. Sadly, the vast majority of us can't travel to these events so no goodies for us. Joe has teased that IF there's any merchandise left over after the show they might sell it online. Assuming the price is right...would you buy Astroneer merch? My answer, unsurprisingly, is yes! 100% I want all of it! ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ If they did open a web store, what other Astroneer merch would you like to see?? I want an oversized mousepad for my desk!! ๐Ÿ˜

    Quick question about gateway (spoilers)

    Go to the side with three triangular platforms, on top they have a resource symbol. Use your Astropedia (press F1 or Menu) to identify which resource the icon represents. Obtain at least a couple pieces of that resource and place them in any of the receptacles at the core (Gateway Engine). I think you'll be able to figure out the next step from there. All planets & moons have a core, btw ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿš€Happy Astroneering๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿš€

    Yes, August, corrected. Thank you. And that's unfortunate, @The Touch of Grey Gamer, but if you ever change your mind or reconsider...please, join us!! We have a lot of fun.

    Stand Alone Creative Mode

    The next update will not be The Wanderer Update, it will be The Exploration Update instead, which is not on the Roadmap. There's no word on when the Roadmap will be updated yet, usually Veronica accompanies Joe on Roadmap streams and I think she is currently on vacation or she has been on vacation. Joe has repeatedly teased "a BIG announcement" at PAX West that will happen on Friday, June August 30th around 1:30 pm PT, all we currently know is that it's not just an announcement of Exploration Update, it's something else. Also, Joe leeked this image and this image on Discord and said the latter "is more module than anything else". Saturday he tweeted what they'll have at their PAX West Booth, and on Friday in Discord he said they'd be selling leftover merch (we were specifically talking about the Water Bottle Bundle) online for those that can't attend. He hinted at a price of around $30.00 for the water bottle bundle, but it seemed like they were still somewhat undecided on price. That's it. That's all I know, and if you're in the Astroneer Discord, you probably knew all of that already thanks to #leekburrito. If you're not a member of the Astroneer Discord, why the hell not?!! Come join us!! It's a great place to stay up-to-date on game news, find players, get help, give help, show off, and from time to time you might even bump into a developer that's being chatty!

    My Save Game Is.....

    Quite Nope, my largest one is the one I started on 1.0 Launch Day and it's around 20 MB. It's the first file I got to 100% completion on, and all kinds of madness has happened there...still does. If I had to guess, I'd say the average player's mid to late game save is 5-15 MB, depending on if they 100% the game or not and their tether usage. You explore places and render things that haven't loaded in before. You quite possibly add more tethers, more modules, edit the terrain, etc. All of these changes are things your game has to "remember", so it increases the file size. Nominally. Picking up excess tethers, shredding/blowing up things you aren't going to keep using, and pairing down your item/resource collection in general will have a small effect on your file size...more than likely measured in KBs and not MBs. For Steam players, I doubt it. The save file is stored locally on your PC and isn't synced to the Steam cloud, so your only limitations would likely be the space on your on machine. For Xbox/Win10 players, yes. The cloud where the saves are stored does have some limitations. In fact, there was recently a bug fix addressing this. Many Microsoft players were hitting the cap and then their game would stop saving or only intermittently save their progress. The cap has been dramatically lifted, but it does still exist. In single player, I consistently get >70 FPS on my ~20 MB Steam save. I used to get <40 FPS, when it was even smaller. I, of course, credit a multitude performance fixes for that increase. My Microsoft save is a consistent 60 FPS, and I sort of wonder if there's a cap there. Aside from those perf fixes, I don't generally leave loose resources sitting around - everything goes on storage, and I probably have less than 15 packs of tethers in use in my whole save and they are broken up on 3 or 4 different oxygenators on three planets. Many of the same things that make your file bigger are also things that impact your FPS, but there are also things that have a nominal impact on your file size but a major impact on your performance, and probably vise-versa.

    Extra Large Shredder

    Are these platforms that you've printed or junk ones that you've found around at wrecks? As far as I know, you can't shred any platform or vehicle that you print yourself.

    The LEM as a point of interest will stay in the game indefinitely, but the ability to interact with it for the Palette & Visor and take the Anniversary photo ends at the end of the month. It would be cool to craft it though.

    Extra Large Silo A and B

    It wasn't a personal attack, @redstonerti. Take it easy. There will hopefully be some streams and/or updates to the roadmap soon so hopefully we will learn more about what's coming up in the Exploration Update as well as others.
  15. @WhiteNoise This is a known bug. Hopefully, it's patched soon. To bypass this problem, put your Soil Centrifuge on a platform with adequate storage for it to unload to.
