    Jetpacks

    Haven't crafted or used one yet.

    Astroneer Distances

    Yep, just call me Mr. Problem from now on. At least you took the time to Google what a smoot was.

    Astroneer Distances

    WOW, my little Astroneer [lovingly named "Harpo"] actually stands at over 6'6" tall. I find that hard to believe from the looks of him, but if you say so, who am I to dispute it.

    Astroneer Distances

    I think smoots would be a novel measurement unit.

    road building drill

    I have not given up hope at all. I even stuck around when my main game save was broken by an early update, and was later rescued by the SES team fixing the issue. Thanks for saving hundreds of hours of game play for me. Patience and persistence as always.

    Tethers I, II, & III

    I like the options you have laid out. Do you anticipate that these tethers will all be made out of the same material [compound], or different combinations of compound+another resource? Any idea on how they will be identifiable in the field or on your backpack?

    Solar System update Idea

    I was trying to quote a thread from back in February, but I couldn't figure out how to do that. Sorry, my bad. Very old dog trying to learn a new trick. Hahahahahaha

    Sorry. Just please disregard that last post.

    Solar System update Idea

    A lot of this stuff looks vaguely familiar. I think I've seen something similar before. Did that work? Oh well, here goes nothing.

    road building drill

    OK, that is a very cool setup. Too bad we have to wait to be able to use it though. All things in time, right? Hahahaha

    road building drill

    @Mio, I believe @Blind Io said this is a prototype. As such, the developers have created it, but we don't have it yet. I have heard that this could be implemented in a future update. Don't know when though.

    RTG

    Good question, but I have never compared the two either. I don't recall noticing any glaring differences between the two. Perhaps a side by side comparison is called for.

    Helmet light

    Well, looky here, someone from the SES development team actually commented on this idea. I am glad they are reading these forums. I think that's the first time I've seen that happen. I certainly hope it isn't the first time it has happened though. OK, OK, I just noticed that @SES_Adam has 142 posts, so I have to assume that it happens fairly regularly.

    Platform shredding 2

    Welcome, to this discussion anyway, @Mio. Unfortunately, dynamite is not configured to do what we would like it to do, so the developers would have to tweak it. Right now, the only options it has are "out of existence" and "scattered to the wind" and until someone at SES changes it we have no other options. Maybe a new type of explosive, say something like a CUTTING CHARGE, could be developed to do the tasks we are looking for.

    Permanent glowsticks.

    I have researched the new glowsticks, but have not crafted any of them yet. Can you give me an idea of how long they glow? I'm trying to determine whether it will be worth it to make any for use during cave exploration.

    Tethers

    Thanks, @Vicomt, I discovered that option yesterday while I was searching for salvage and research nuggets on my home planet. I really like having the option to have those storage units configured the way I want them.

    Helmet Modules

    How about a "Heads-up" compass module!
  18. Flyingcrowbar

    How do I rotate objects I'm holding?

    Same here. Have you rebound your hotkeys? Also, are you holding the item in your hands, or with your "Tractor beam"? Granted, the items you listed can only be held with the "Tractor beam" but research nuggets, medium storage and a bunch of other items can be held "In hand".

    Tethers

    I have not noticed this new behavior, but I have not been placing many tethers while on a run, lately. Maybe the developers are trying to save us from being lemmings and running headlong off a cliff by making us stop and adjust tethers. Who really knows what they are thinking. I did noticed that my medium storage units mounted on my rovers are back in the upright position again.

    Please don't add map !

    @Gina: I apologize, I made an assumption and was wrong (as I so often am). I thought as a moderator you might be privy to more information than the rest of us. Now I realize that you are just one of us, but that you have graciously agreed to spend some of your limited time moderating these forums. Thank you for your effort on our behalf, and please accept my apology. FCB

    Please don't add map !

    You are correct, TToGG! If it is implemented though, I would like to see it as a toggleable option that you could choose to use or not, and not something that is always in your face if youdon't want to use it. @Gina Do you have any more info to share about cartograghy? It sounds intriguing to me.

    Limited time updates like the Lunar Update

    Welcome, Doug! 500+ hours is a good start, and joining the forum is a great step too. Hope to see lots of posts from you in the future.

    Helmet light

    Maybe the developers could add photosensitive detectors to the lights that shut them down automatically. I know its not for power savings, but because of the "washed out" effect the lights give during daylight hours on certain planets, right?

    Platform shredding 2

    I agree with you, red! I think dynamite should also be able to break the items that are still too big to be shredded in the extra large shredder into chunks that can be shredded. All those derelict space ships, those large platforms, broken smelters, old habitat, the list goes on... too. Or they could implement one of my earlier suggestions and give us a plasma torch or cutting torch to cut them into shred ready pieces. A cutting torch could even use hydrazine as a fuel source.

    I will try to remember and see what shakes out.
