SecondSword posted a topic in Suggestions and IdeasAstroneer is a great game. I was around way before the 1.0 update and loved the game. The 1.0 update was bettet than i imagined. The terrain, planets, and even the machines looked EPIC But, There are 3 things i think would make the game way better. ROBOTS A little bot could make the game a whole lot cooler. Im not asking for the dev team to make a gigantic terminator planet dissasembler powered by the might of zeus. A little bot (the size of the player) that could recieve commands given by the player (Mine, create a tether line etc...) would make the game really feel like it is generations beyond our current space travel is. The robot could have teirs. The robot could be a vehicle mod (like the mods for the terrain tool) that makes the vehicle do things. to make this not too overpowered the first tier could be 1 zinc and 1 ammonium for the Mod version of it. The mod version of the robot would require a storage (like a medium storage on a small rover). The modification could be given Astronium from sylva and become its own thing (Once astromium is given it consumes the vehicle and astronium and becomes a better bot). I know that a major update has just come out but maybe by the end of the year this could be added. Vehicles Astroneer has a couple vehicles but i think a couple more would be good. A Mod (like the terrain tool ones) that can be added to a vehicle and give it abilities would be pretty nice. By abilities i mean like faster speed, Ability to hold platforms that are not packaged etc. If the dev team does create oceans for planets, a submarine or a boat that can be grounds for a base in the ocean would be AWESOME. These vehicles can be crafted at a Vehicle Bay. Better Drills. the second i learned that the planets core had a gateway chaimber i crafted a drill, attached it to my rover and nose dived into the ground. The drills in the game as of current are pretty useful. The drills make resource gathering more fun when you can just plow through anything like butter. I only have 2 problems with the drills. 1. You cant change the angle that the drill is drilling unless you manuver yourself in that certain way. 2. The drill makes holes that you can walk through by foot but does NOT place concrete (the thing that you can place with the canister and terrain tool). If the drill can change its angle and, the drill can place concrete under it when it in inevitably drills throgh the toof of a cave. The drill should have a Mod slot that can take modifications. For example a Builder Mod that digs holes and places concrete when it drills into a hole/cave.
