    Is co-op play dead?

    OK, will do. They tried many times and many ways to connect, but were thwarted in their efforts.

    Is co-op play dead?

    Folks: Is co-op play done unless you PAY FOR the dedicated servers? I am asking because a friend of mine tried playing co-op with his grand son the other day. They don't have DS and were unable to connect to each other and play as they have in the past. Was a free feature that was part of the game for a very long time taken away and replaced with a revenue generation feature? They tried connecting both in-game and through Steam and neither worked. Am I right in assuming that co-op play is dead unless you are willing to pay the monthly fee?

    Auto Tethering

    I really like this idea. Having laid down tens of thousands of tethers in my time having it be an automatic thing would be very helpful.

    is anybody here?

    The Discord server always seems to be very busy.

    They're all busy trying to turn Astroneer into Minecr**t. Hahahahaha

    Multiple Crashed debris genereated

    Oh, that sucks even worse than the low frame rate. Sorry to hear that.

    Medium Oxygen Canister

    I like to use the portable oxygenator (PO) on my rover since it requires a smaller connector than the larger one. However, you need a very reliable power source to use it since the the thing drinks power like Capt. Jack Sparrow drinks rum. I usually have an RTG on the rover when I have the PO on there and leave the PO on all the time since it can't drink an RTG dry.

    Are there still Sandstorms on some planets?

    @Bron, I have to be honest and admit that may have been the case, but many times that I found stuff it was up wind and shouldn't have come from my base if it was blown along by the storm.. Either way, it was always nice to be driving, or walking, along and find an unexpected treasure just laying on the ground in the middle of nowhere! Also, I agree with your comments on Glacio! It is a wild and wonderful place. You just need to be able to deal with the glare and "Snow blindness" that occurs there even when there isn't any snow flying around.

    Found thing. What is it? Can I haul it?

    @Bron, great suggestion on trying to dynamite this thing! That dynamic is still a new concept to me and I generally don't even remember that it's an option. @Drayde, it would be great i you would try giving it a dynamite "treatment" and let us know what happens.
  10. I had that happen in a multiplayer game I was in. It was a pain losing the terrain tool, but at least I got an extra attachment point on the side of the backpack where the terrain tool normally plugs in. Yes, when the tool is gone you can carry an extra item on that connector. One of the other guys in the game actually took a screen shot of my Astroneer with a drill mod or something attached to that slot. I believe the only solution for me was to quit the game and also have the host quit the game and then for him to restart the game and me to rejoin.

    Those things have been around since the game was in Early Access. I think it was supposed to be some sort of launching pad or something like that. They produce oxygen and have electrical sockets on them too. In the first tutorial that I ever tried you had to build a ramp up to the top of the thing to replace the actual ramp that was broken off of it. They are hard to find now though, so good score finding one.

    Sand storms? I remember storms with the "cardboard boxes from hell" but never anything that resembled sand. Sometimes those storms even carried useful items along with them. On many occasions I found bottles of hydrazine that weren't there before those storms would pass through. Didn't the storms on Calidor have those giant spike balls that that blew along with the storms like killer tumbleweeds?

    The Million Bytes Club

    Welcome to the club, and good work!
  14. So, pretty much useless unless you are near one of these 6 "cardinal" points on the planet that you referred to.

    Multiple Crashed debris genereated

    Normally I would say that it was a good thing to have all that debris available to shred or package and return. However, with the game slow-down issue you describe I have to say that this isn't a good thing. If you blow up the derelicts with dynamite does it improve your frame rate and speed up the game? If that works I'd want to keep plenty o explosives on hand and then enjoy the abundance of debris available.
