  1. Very hard to see and operate the drill/paver on large rover inside caves I think this is a long going dilemma, I just pull up because it's still on on and I have a possible solution. The issue is when you drill down in the large rover and you basically have the view stuck on its rear and if you try to rise hover it you can't always do it because there is the ceiling of the cave and the sides too. 1) viewability issue. If you can't/don't want move the pov on the head's player at least implement some sort of 90-95% transparency on the rover and all its mounted stuff that activates when the drill is functioning and the viewing direction is aligned with the drill's model. 2) drill's angle operativity. Depending on the cave/gallery structure you're driving, adjusting the drill's angle is very difficult if not impossibile by both mouse movement and eye's impediment as from issue 1) above. I don't see an easy solution here. Separate key controls to operates up/down the drill won't make things a lot easier. Maybe the mouse wheel would do?

    Patch 1.9.8 - January 24th, 2020

    Dumb question: what is the (in)famous often mentioned "True flat"?

    The Creative Update - November 15th, 2019

    Yeah, but nothing new. At the moment is a game about storages. To store resources. To build more and fancier storages.

    You don't need to start over at each update.

    Need help to mine 50% of Desolo...

    lol, great job strange how the atmosphere remains a sphere

    The Creative Update - November 15th, 2019

    I suppose I could, but I don't like doing it, in any game I play. Last time I did maybe was in 1995 for Doom 2 in which I had to record a demo showing I could complete the first level in the lowest time possibile, and send the demo in a floppy to a game magazine. A couple of weeks later they published the winner, he wasn't me although he spent a time higher than mine so I should have been the winner but maybe my floppy disc got lost or whatever.

    Uhm I can't belive you actually spent time to add this mode. Instead to make the game more challening and less boring a God-mode has been added.

    activation train

    I use a stack of RTG's instead of those tiny batteries.

    Satellite Spawning Bug

    I noticed this bug too, I think during an update items have been spawned multiple times at the same spot all around Sylva.
  10. Until they introduce player mortality by other means and the need of those resource to support ways to avoid to die, most of the resources matter to produce more tools and ways only to gather these resources.

    Thank you and New Direction Thoughts

    Fortnite? If you guys replace Fortinte with Don't Starve to the list of games to look into for the survival component (food, temperature hazards), you're making The Game of the century, even if at a lower level of complexity that Don't Starve offers.

    Liquids in Astroneer

    Nope, their physics is too complex to mantein and simulate on a such variable and vast environment. It would be cpu killer and infinite bugs source.

    Introduce Digging Elevator!

    I don't see the point why a player should enclose himself in such a grave-tubular sarcophagus like and start a blind descent into a planet's surface and there remain for the ethernity? I only judged this idea but if I should propose an alternative closes to this, I'd prefer a whole tier of elevator platforms - not drillers tho - only to ascend descend, from smalled size to contain a medium rover or two to bigger sized for larger large rover's trains. But still if one already dug into lower levels via tunnels I don't see a specific pourpose to these in the actual state of the game.
  14. Maybe I didn't read the manual right - hey, but there are no instructions for the items in the game 😉 When I want to Drill I mount the Drill on one of the slots in front of the rover - usually the left one - and I activate it by pressing V Here comes the first question, regardless the side I put the Drill on (left or right), it activates only by pressing V, even if it would be way more accessible with C and I would expect it to do so in the same way it happens when I put the items on my left and right backpack's slots. When I want to Pave, I mount the Paver next to the Drill, and still I have to hit V, regardless of the position as said before. If I want to go back at normal Drilling only, I have to exit the vehicle, dismount the Paver on a non-functional slot and go back the vehicle and so on. Am I doing this right? I would expect that I could simply have them both mounted forever and be able to activate one or another with C or V depending on where are they mounted (left or right) without having to mount/dismonut the Paver every time.
  15. I mostly agree. I have great memories of my first to-the-core mission on Sylva made only on foot, with tethers and a very basic knowledge of the terrain tool (I didn't know how to copy the slopes...) But yet I was afraid, immersed and astonished while advancing in the mission, knowing I was far from the base. In hindsight I guess it was a lie because there wasn't much of being afraid of after all... except being careful of where I stepped on, but yet those sensations were intense and thanks to this game for having them delivered! Others to the core missions are more cold and schematic with no emotions and all but c'est la vie

    Large Storage Silo doesn't work with canisters.

    That's some real armageddon resources packing lool...
  17. View rotates as you move the mouse without right clicking as soon as you load the game. To go to normal mode you just have to right click once. This happens evey time after you start and load the game, after that never happens again during the game session.
  18. When you're on the purple Unidentified Satellite, and you gaze into the black stone in order to teleport into one of the activated planet's gateway, there is no clear indication of which planet's name you're hovering the mouse on, unless probably you're a dev hmself or you play constantly the game every day and you've perfectly memorized the shape and position and orbit. Maybe the easier to spot for the average not-Einstein savant like player is Sylva due to its Desolo moon proximity. Also, the difference between an activated planet and one that needs activation is very faint, just a weak purplishness. I think the game needs some work on these fundamentals that maybe are understimated by someone who spent much time on the game (devs or pro players) but for the new and casual players, are a must.

    [semi spoiler] UI enanchements on the U.S. ...

    Okay I admit I missed the symbol displayed when hovering the mouse on a planet in that view. However I have to keep a paper-printed list of the planets with the relative symbols at hand for fast access (going back to the trangular paltform is not an option in this case ;)), it's cool okay I do these kind of stuff for games I like particularly, but it's not for all people! :)

    Paver slot???

    Actually it seems the slots don't accept anything. I tried with canisters, mods, floodlight, nothing! Maybe is an indicator that the Paver "consumes" something (soil), but if so, it's a bit confusing.
  21. If you applied some FPS tweaks found on the internet, remove them, they gave me the same problem.
  22. Last time I played version was... 1.0.something if I remember correctly. Days ago I took back the game after months, I like most of the news stuff, other stuff I don't understand the pourpose yet, but what I'm most concered about is, I can't find my bases other than Sylva! Sylva has all my stuff at the proper place. other planets had some minor outposts. Maybe it's my memory not working properly, but I do vaguely remember I could see the beacons emerge from the clouds while orbiting other planets. Was there a chance that during on of the last months updates, some planets got reset/rewritten? Any way to check from save/console if the stuff still there? Thanks!

    Bodies of water and boats?

    Water physics is too complex to implement in variable terrain situation, imagine if you drill holes in a lake and let the water flow to the core? Or just calculate all possibile water flows through all possible slopes and holes? Crazy...
