  1. I usually only use rovers only on Terran. The game is set sometime in the 25th Century. As for push buttons, I think that's just part of the vintage design inspiration. The artistic freedom for development doesn't have to expressly match reality. All the crashed satellites made to resemble real world counterparts are just Easter eggs, like the marbles, and were probably design studies for how to model in game modules, etc. Early rover designs looked more like the Lunar Rover from the Apollo missions, but now they're more akin to Self-Propelled Modular Transporters.
  2. Yeah, Barren seems to be the meta for research and avoiding storms.
  3. Congratulation, you posted this suggestion one hour after pretty much the exact same idea was suggested by @Pichu. Of course, using Google reveals there was an ever earlier topic: Have a good one.
  4. As brevity is the soul of wit, readability of Shadow Echo's comments have long been sold to the Devil, and then re-gifted to Cthulhu.
  5. Maybe not only a refactor, but research-able suit upgrades to mitigate them even further in late game. I don't see storms as something that needs to bother advanced play. Highly developed saves can just have bases relocated underground. Something so easily circumvented should just be curtailed. Understandably, the storms are there at fist to provide a challenge to tether bound Astroneers, and to force them underground to explore, but later it isn't necessary. It's on the Trello, so we'll all just have to see what the fix is gonna be.
  6. Wish there was a feller buncher attachment for the crane. Would help greatly with cutting down, and disposing of trees. Lovely, Factorio logic.
  7. I see that all the time on new saves. It happens for every planet I place beacons on.
  8. These can be easily looked up, but for convenience: Argenite - Silver Ore Brass - Copper-zinc alloy Bronze - Copper-tin alloy Calaverite - Gold ore Carbon Fiber - Likely sourced from Graphite/Carbon Cassiterite - Tin ore Complex - n/a Graphene Alloy - n/a Liquid - Maybe source of Water Pigment - n/a, maybe temporary value Radio Active Waste - Likely byproduct of some form of nuclear energy production Rosin - Likely sourced from Resin Silicon - Likely sourced from Carbon/Quartz/Argon I wonder if those would
  9. Thanks, I hope they're added too. Yes, right now most upgrade assets are just better versions, or merely access new resource. I wanted to make suggestions that added depth to game-play by providing separate options. The narrow selection of widgets mean there is little trade-off to adding only oxygen tanks and work lights. Filters are nice, but they are a large resource draw, and constant bother to make. Players use backpack power anyways to make Filters in the field. Adding a high-cost, permanent, but power reliant solution (Scrubber) seems like not just an upgrade, but change of pace.
  10. It that an old save loaded after the game updated?
  11. To save space, and add capacity (plus prevent scrap from jumbling around and falling out over rough terrain), instead of a simple bin, make the container a trash compactor. Heck, add crane attachment (scrap claw) to pick up items without a secondary Astroneer having to exit the vehicle to load the scrap. A claw would be very helpful during storms, or even with heavy scrap pieces; and maybe could be able to pull out partially buried scrap. It might also have future applications for collecting hostile plants. When the rover gets back to base, take out the newly formed compacted scrap
  12. This is likely becasue while attached (slotted), certain modules don't have a physical radius. In other words, they're rendering as a visible object, but don't have an interacting surface. It would seem printers adjust print location based on interactive surfaces (ground, open slots, crates , etc.) Vehicles would be extreamly limited mobility wise if modules protruding in-front, and behind, had hit boxes; becasue they would collide with terrain, and hinder clearance. Thus, this is just a technical snafu that likely wont ever be fixed. Of course, that's just a supposition based on how most
  13. That's optimization... which isn't really the focus of the suggestions asked for. Besides, this isn't the thread. Try this one:
  14. A headlamp toggle, or ambient light sensing for switching headlamps, might be a polish feature we could see before 1.0. It's something that defiantly needs to be added... it doesn't make sense that Work Lights can be turned on/off, but suit lights cannot. Of course, this feature isn't a priority. It would also be nice if seats could have their lights toggle-able, so players could have additional working light near vehicles, and to help locate them in the dark.
  15. The only issue is I can’t edit topics after a certain time. Also, to keep posting updated versions too often might be considered spam. I’d have to ask a mod what would be acceptable.
  16. Yeah, until the new terrain system is out, if it's not slotted, it's good a gone.
  17. Dynamite is the short term fix. Long term is alpha optimizations, eventually correlating in 1.0 update. Anyone here for these early bricking days will look back an laugh; maybe even meme about veterans being all to willing to dynamite unsatisfactory equipment.
  18. I was sorta just updating my previous suggestions to match the current game direction. It's likely the last I'll do it, but the new gas system just change so much of the dynamic I felt it needed to be done. Also, I posted it so close to the most recent past update.
  19. Since knowledge of the actual problem isn’t ever going to be used by anyone outside the dev team, it’s likely they never share the inner workings to save time.
  20. Note: This thread contains revised content from previous thread of mine; found here. It contained outdated information, and elements that don’t apply for the current game state ( Update). Resources Sperrylite Smelter processing into Platinum Alternative trade resource Sale value of 16 Gas Hydrate Alternative source of gasses (other being condensing ambient atmosphere with Atmospheric Condenser) Found in terrain; deposit types include Hydrogen, Argon, Methane, Nitrogen, Helium, Sulfur, and Ethane Chemistry Lab uses two bundles of Hydrate = on
  21. This might have something to do with materials that need at least 1/2 capacity to obtain a single bundle. It's either that kind of operations flummox, or a UI issue showing the wrong amount.
  22. I suppose you're out of luck until a manual option is added.
  23. Make enough dynamite to level Barren. Kill all the dangaloidal Lures.
