    A very buried Gateway chamber

    Falling to my death would be another reason that I would prefer a buried Gateway to one suspended in mid-air. Hahahaha

    Co-op game confusion

    Thanks for the reply, D. I have been actively pursuing friends on Steam and hope to be able to join a multi-player game soon.

    Co-op game confusion

    So, lots of lookers, but no takers. Well, this will bump this up the list, anyway.
  4. That is totally freaky! I have been trying to figure out how to get a co-op game started, or join one, but have not had any success yet. However, with problems like the one shown in your attached image, I'm not so sure that I should keep pursuing it.

    Bushmills: Thanks for the info and the link about AUGMENTS! I had no clue that was a thing, and the wiki does a great job of explaining it. I have used tool mods very rarely, but now that I see some new possibilities, I may have to get on the bandwagon. FCB

    AT: That's a really tough break. I see lots of digging in your future, but I think I'd rather have that then a gateway that is suspended in mid air high above the ground. I've seen posts from people that have that situation. I guess I'd rather clear off soil than have to build a long ramp. Good luck with your situation. FCB

    Co-op game confusion

    I wanted to try playing a multiplayer game but have been stumped as to how to do that. I tried clicking the multiplayer start a new game option and got nowhere. There were options for Friends in Game, Friends, and Servers (Coming soon), but none of those options could be selected. So am I to assume that no co-op play can be started from within the game itself? it looks that way to me. If so, where the heck would you launch a co-op game of Astroneer? And who are these friends that the options refer to. Are these people on discord, on Steam, on the dark side of the Moon? If I am on Steam can I only play with folks on Steam, or is a discord person OK too? How do I find these folks? On another note, the Astroneer discord "server" isn't very user friendly. I saw nothing indicating where to find a "friend" to go exploring with. I probably missed it, but the site is cluttered and not much help.

    Loading things into the new Extra large shredder

    TToGG: I assume that you are having the same issue. I find it hard to believe that our Astroneers can lift and move a Large Shuttle, but can't lift a rover chassis.Granted, you can't lift and walk with the large shuttle, but you can lift it, move it, and then reposition and do that again and again until you get the thing where you want it to be. Seems like a bit of unbalanced game play to me.

    Loading things into the new Extra large shredder

    That's one possibility that I didn't think of. I don't know how you would drag something though. Clearly, the winch drags stuff, but, like I said, if the scrap is still attached to the winch cable it doesn't feed into the shredder. Well, not when you hold the winch with your "Hand Held Tractor Beam" anyway. You might be able to use the large or medium rover to push the chassis into the shredder, but I'm not to confident that would work either. This is the first time I have built or used a crane and you can hook the winch to the crane boom to lift the chassis, but you are still faced with the scrap attached to the winch cable not feeding issue.
  10. OK, we got an even bigger shredder with the most recent update and it works great with medium platforms and such, but how the heck do you load a medium rover chassis into the blasted thing. You can drag these rovers back to base all day long, but since you can't pick it up there is no way that I've figured out to load it into the shredder after you get it back to your base. I thought using a crane might be the answer, but the crane won't attach to it. I tried using the winch to load it too, but as long as it is attached to the winch cable it won't feed into the shredder. What am I missing, or is this just another piece of scrap that is labeled for recycling, but cant be recycled. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hyrdrazine only ONE Ammonium

    My vote is for the hydrazine thruster. I use the trade platform for most of the Ammonium that I need, but some of the planets have decent supplies of ammonium just laying around on the surface of the planet. I find is quite surprising that you can find ammonium laying around among the trees in a lot of the forests on certain planets.

    Best thing i have found in the game

    I love putting things on the winch and swinging then around like you have a cat by the tail. It's great for a laugh, but you do need to be careful.

    What a day.........

    Good for you, TTOGG! I was very happy to be able to play crash/dropout free for the day yesterday on the save that I started right when 1.0 released. I was having the issue where the game would only run for a minute or two before quitting. I was over joyed to get all that work back and be able to move forward with the game. I still have lots to do and I'm hoping that the problems do not recur down the road. Thanks to the folks at SES for making that happen.
  14. Flyingcrowbar A new hope!!

    Not a bug report but a guarded "Thank You" to SES. The new update/patch seems to have fixed the issue with the game where I was getting dropped to the Windows desktop with no warning or error message after only a minute or 2 of game play. I loaded the save that had been broken and played for several hours yesterday without a recurrence of the problem. I say guarded because I have only played for a few hours, but being able to play for more than a minute or two is a move in the right direction. Thanks again and I will keep you posted if things start happening.
  15. I wonder if the developers are just waiting for us to give up and start over with a new game since doing that "allegedly" solves this problem. If that is the case I would really have a lot more respect for them if they came out and admitted that the only fix involves abandoning your game that you have lots of progress in and going back to square one.
