I’ve already posted this on the Help, Questions, and Support forums, but based on how far apart each reply was on other pages, it’ll be a LONG time before I get an answer, and the general forum looks much faster, so:
I’m new to Astroneer but I’ve seen some videos. One thing that really confuses me is the first landing. In some videos, people land and their pod stays there. The pod has a cylindrical extension and when clicked, it extends and you can build off of it. But in other videos and in my game, the pod gets way bigger and then some landing pod appears and opens up into a mini-stadium thing. My main concern about that is I have to use those cables, which is harder because I had to go find something, research it, get some resources, build it, place it, and attach the cable. In the videos with the cylinders they simply clicked the cylinder and put some resources on there. The rest of the structures have cylinders, but in my case, I kept manually attaching cables and it’s kinda painful for a person like me. I might’ve remembered some of this stuff wrong, I have horrible memory and it’s been a week.
Also, my terrain tool doesn’t build up. When I hold alt, all of the dots immediately turn into one big X.
One more thing: in most videos, resource deposits are labeled, but for me, I have to find it, so if it’s not on the surface, it’ll take me 10 minutes to find it.
Does anybody understand what’s happening?
