    Nintendo switch

    Yeah, @The Touch of Grey Gamer, they aren't my favorite either. Someone in the video comments asked if they were drunk, lol. I'm pretty sure I've seen them do other interviews with Joe in the past, and they might be friends from years ago before Joe joined SES and they tend to blur the lines of professionalism. I can feel Joe's pain in every awkward laugh. 😅😳

    Nintendo switch

    These two Nintendo Switch conversations have been merged. Here's a bit more information from an interview with Joe TL;DR: Optimizing for Xbox & PS4 has been a challenge in-and-of itself, they'd like to come to the Switch one day, but the handheld console has limited capabilities and they're not willing to strip out parts of the game or multi-player experience to make that happen. They aren't saying they'll never do it, but it's just not feasible right now.
  3. I love the new more compact Small Solar and Small Wind, but I would really love if the Small Solar's post also retracted like the Small Wind's does.

    Seat Lights?

    It has been like that for as long as I can remember.

    PLEASE fix the tethers.

    We're expecting another update before the end of this month, hopefully this will be fixed.

    Soil Centrifuge issues

    You can reset the Centrifuge by packing & unpacking it. Once you've done that, put it on a Large Platform B (or larger), and add storage. As long as there's at least 1 open slot available on the storage you should be fine.

    Alphabetical Printers

    I've never felt so validated. Thanks, Marc!

    How do I...?

    Astroneer is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so you can play it on your Xbox or on a Windows 10 PC. Log into the Windows Store/Xbox Companion App using the same account and you should be able to launch the game as long as your machine meets the System Requirements for the Microsoft version..
  10. Hi @Sardonyx78, it might be helpful to send this information to If you're using Steam, there are also two workarounds that help in many cases. Link one Link two

    Astroneer Distances

    Veronica said the moons are identical in size, so ~60k Units, but does this mean all of the planets are identical in size (aside from topography)? Glaico seems bigger than the others, but perhaps I am conflating it with Tundra from Early Access.

    New Suit!

    Mix it up, try out the various emotes and animations (running, death, etc) with each suit. You should at least experience them, even if they aren't your main. I have used all of the suits for at least a little while, but my main in Early Access was Bubbles. Now my main is Arid suit. Bubbles, Exotic, and Terran are probably the ones I switch to most often when I'm not using Arid. 218 on the Microsoft version and 1,348 on Steam (1,566) I say, I'm ready for even more suits, in addition to the new palettes and visors.
  13. I have a rather different, almost a completely opposite take on this. It's an upgraded version of the backpack you can buy and craft. No built in Oxygen Tank. No built in battery. Instead, there are 4 Auxiliary slots instead of 2 where the O2 tank was. The battery is also replaced with 4 regular slots. I haven't quite sorted out is how players using a controller would interact with 4 Aux slots. Those controls would definitely be more manageable on PC. With jetpacks out now, I just really want more space on top of my backpack. Perhaps keep just 2 Aux and have some standard ones on top, idk. I just want my light and 2 jetpacks on top, tbh. lol. Anyway, you would use small batteries and small O2 tanks for power and oxygen storage, stay tethered, or use a Portable Oxygenator, whatever you want. That's your problem with your slightly more spacious and customizable backpack. If you die you respawn with a standard backpack, and recover the upgrade or make a new one. It would also be nice to scrap crafted backpacks. TBH, I'd like to scrap all backpacks, but I see how it could be exploited with players dying again and again just so they can scrap their luggage. Maybe if we got 1 freebie that's recoverable/replaceable when we start, and then all others are crafted out of a universal resource. That'd be a fun challenge. Your idea leads me to want an upgradeable Terrain Tool with built in soil storage, though. Maybe a little battery too, something along the lines of what the Buggy has. Good ideas, Mio! I really like the idea of researching additional upgrades. I have far more bytes than I have things to do with them.
