    Praise the Zebra

    May The Lord Leopard bless you and keep you; The Leopard make His sphere shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Leopard lift up His countenance upon you, And give you many resources. Amen. 🙌 🐆
  2. Printing colored fireworks is something I want, but that also seems problematic. Fireworks are a tier 1 item printed in the backpack and require only 1 resource. The explosive powder makes prefect sense for that recipe. My suggestion in the past has been that the crafting color is planet based, and we can reuse the same planet/color combinations that we saw in the Lunar Update. So all fireworks printed while on Sylva are Red, Desolo - Orange, Calidor - Yellow, Vesania - Green, Novus - Teal, Glacio - Blue, Atrox - Purple. This has the added benefit of encouraging players to visit other planets. I guess the default blue tip with the redish-orange burst version that we have now could be on the Satellite. I am also on board with iconography on beacons. Resource icons, machine icons, and arrows all sound great but scrolling though a seemingly endless list of icons/items is already becoming an issue in the printers. Maybe if we could open a backpack-catalog-style menu on the beacons and select the thing we want, that could be more reasonable.

    Large storage

    Large Storage and the Large Silos A & B all fit in the Large Shuttle. There are two Tier-3 slots on the back of the shuttle. You can also fit a Tier-2 item in the area next to the seat.

    Status report on Dedicated Servers?

    ^^ This. Here's some copy-pasta from another recent post with links. The servers were anticipated on November 15th, but on Thursday there was a dev stream on Twitch and we learned that there has been a delay. There will be a closed beta test of the servers in December, and public roll out of servers is expected for early 2020. We also learned that this has something to do with some big changes that have been made during development that have put the option of host-your-own servers back on the table (for PC players). I don't think the self-hosted servers will be releasing at the same time, but they are coming.

    so Servers this month right?

    The Phantom terrain bug

    There's little bit of good news/bad news relating to servers and this bug. The bad news is that servers have been delayed. A closed beta is expected to happen in December, and then we should see a public roll-out of servers in early 2020. The good news is -- the devs have a fix for the multi-player terrain desync issue and it will be implemented in the November 15th update. There might be a bit a trade off for that fix though. In areas where you deformed terrain, such as digging to the core or carving into a mountain, some of that terrain might reappear. Once you remove it, it should no longer be a problem in single player or multi-player.
  7. @Ushot2late, as far as I can tell, this has indeed been addressed. The new medium canister doesn't auto fill/dump when it's attached to a storage, but if you put it directly on a platform it will push/pull cans to/from attached storage. But if you took that Large Silo B from you first picture that's outfitted with medium silos full of canisters and put it on your drill-equipped-rover, it would fill the cans with soil.
  8. The Satellite is an "Alien structure". It uses the same symbols found on the Geometric Triptychs to identify the planets. If you look at the line of triangular platforms on the satellite behind the Odd Stone, you'll see those icons again. Starting from the inside, they are there in the same order as the planets in the Astropedia. Sylva (innermost platform), Desolo, Calidor, Vesania, Novus, Glacio, Atrox (outermost platform). Once you learn which icon is which, you will be able to easily identify the planets viewed in the Odd Stone on the Satellite. There is a client-side bug where clients in a multiplayer game cannot see the icons on the planets or when on a planet's surface -- clients can't see the numbers on the Gateway Chambers. Hopefully we'll see that addressed soon.
  9. Right click Astroneer in your Steam library, select properties, and copy/paste this into your Launch Options: -WinX=0 -WinY=0
  10. I think a magnet would be clever. It'd also serve as a nice alternative to the truck bed/dump truck that many others have recommended. It'd need to be a Tier 2 item to attach to the end of the crane, but if you lay it on a trailer/rover then it could function like a truck bed as well.

    Shuttle Seating

    I've always thought it was kind of strange that we can cram so many people into a shelter, but not a shuttle.

    Ghost Astronaut?

    I've had a "ghost" player, but when I hover over them it just says "Astroneer" and it never does anything -- ever. It's always the EXO Suit in the EXO Blue palette. I don't think it counts on my player count either.
  14. This is already an option. I suggest igniting the Dynamite and then picking the item up while it ticks down and ultimately explodes. That way you don't have any damage to the ground around you/your base.
