    Overhyped Wanderer update

    It's so low it's potatoes and it's under ground. Yeah, I bitch and moan about this update, I payed money for the game. I rather see them do something useful instead of these absolute kindergarten level ideas.

    Overhyped Wanderer update

    As I posted on the next day on Discord, the Wanderer update is a let down, I said that "I hope it isn't some collecting rocks" lame idea. Then, the next few days it comes out. You're not even collecting rocks. You're visiting some sites. That's so LAME I don't even know where to start. Huge disappointment. I don't know what took them 6 months to release this failed "update". This thing was DOA from the moment they went ahead and approved wasting money and resources on this. I was expecting something interesting to do. This is lame, it is a waste of HDD space, I wish I could just disable the garbage items that are useless anyways once you complete the quest once. Also, the chess, the ball, the circles, all are just useless. I will not be researching them ever again. I wish there was an option or a mod that allows you to disable certain buildings or tools. Because these suck and don't belong. Just like adult coloring books. They shouldn't exist. I was expecting some proper tools and vehicles. Some kind of local flying vehicle, such as an electric helicopter or ship, some new vehicle trailers that allow us to stack items like debris so we can bring them to the base instead of having to move the big garbage truck around. The Wanderer update. Lame. It gets 2/10, one star because of the actual models and one star because they thought to add them, most people don't even know that these exist or existed, but the implementation of the adventure is terrible. There is no replayability value. This update name would be more properly named if they replaced the "d" with a "k" in the name because that's about the amount of work that got put into this half baked idea that nobody needed or asked for. I'd like the option of being able to disable these items as well as some of the platforms or the items added in the summer update and so on. All non essential crap should be optional. At least that option should wash away some of the ridiculousness and lameness of some of the items added.

    Looking For Players Megathread

    Yeah, looking for someone from Europe due to time zone constraints, English speaker. Steam. Available evenings and weekends. I already completed the game so I'm mostly looking to help someone out while they complete the game. Can use mic via Discord. Looking for serious players that want to play the game properly. Send me a PM in case you are interested. Bonus if you are a memester and a troll on jokes and a witty person. Edgy humor is a bonus. But normies are welcome too.

    Can't open my old world

    It is fixed. I managed to play for hours. It works fine, but please note that I did get one crash, so remember to save often.

    1.1.0 - Steam - Freezing While Digging/Walking

    Seems that the new beta is out and that it fixes the freezes. I've been playing for an hour so far and abusing the game. Could be fixed.

    Can't open my old world

    There is currently a freeze bug in the game. You have to wait for an update. The developers are (very slowly) working on it.

    As I suggested in the astroneer discord forum I think it should be made radioactive and required for RTGs. Making RTGs with lithium makes no sense since the lithium isotopes are really poor at this. Alternatively can be used to power the jet pack or some kind of "nuclear reactor" that consumes it very slowly.
  8. I attached as zip, maybe the site did not like the ini extension. I analysed the file, I could not find any specific difference, at least not all the information that was in it was pasted here. Anyways, full disclosure, on what I was testing. What I noticed is the following. When using the initial file, and only modifying the resolution, the file maintained integrity during gameplay. If, however, I would edit the fullscreen setting, some discrepancies would appear in the content of the file. More precisely, the controls would become scrambled on occasion. Certain key mappings would now be displayed on different rows. But it would always happen after switching the windowed mode to fullscreen. Reverting back to windowed afterwards would not bring the file back to the initial form so it remained "altered". My suspicion was that the freeze would be caused by the "corruption" of the config file. I thought that the game is looking for the controls in a specific order and somehow this "corruption" of the ini file causes the game to break. The file on the left is the original. The one on the right is the one where I enabled fullscreen. If it was naive of me to search for this, I don't know. But I have established a weird (at least empirical) connection between the windowed fullscreen and fullscreen modes. Using the game in windowed mode I got way longer play times than usual. I've seen game crashing from less than this, so I wanted to investigate if the ini file has a role to play into it. On my system, it does, but that could be just circumstantial. I would like the opinion of a dev it it is normal for the ini file to become rearranged when changing just one setting and if this has indeed any potential to cause issues with the game. But I don't hope to receive such an answer. And I won't be going back to discord to ask any dev anyways since the communication is too deficient for my taste. Thanks for your effort and time.
  9. Well, after testing for a few hours I found that the freeze still occurs. It does last longer until the game does it. But the fact that it still does seals it. It is somehow related to the fullscreen setting but it is part of the problem. So, you can still try and see for yourself, but since this yelds partial improvements I am going to call it quits. I will still look at your files if you upload them.
  10. I don't guarantee that this will lead to me finding the issue, but I have noticed an improvement in stability. It could just be random chance and all of this be irrelevant. I am aware of the -nosound fix but that is more of a workaround rather than a fix.
  11. So, With the help of a mod from the Discord server I got a ini config file. Using it I was able to run the game without any issues for an hour, which is new. The file needs to be located in the folder c:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Local\Astro\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini What I need someone to help me with: 1. Backup your current file and put it somewhere else or rename it (eg. GameUserSettings2.ini or GameUserSettings(old).ini) 2. Download the file attached; 3. Open it with notepad and go to the lines below and ONLY change the following lines and nothing else (critical step) ResolutionSizeX=1920 ResolutionSizeY=1080 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=1920 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1080 And make sure that you are using the correct resolution for your machine 4. Copy the file in your folder 5. Start the game, but in the menu please leave the display mode settings to WINDOWED FULLSCREEN. It is critical that you DO NOT CHANGE the display mode to FULLSCREEN for the purpose of this test, not even for a second as this will screw up the settings file and ruin the purpose of the test. 6. Play the game and let me know if the freeze still happens. If the game still freezes, and you have not fiddled with the FULLSCREEN settings, please attach your file to this thread along side with the time it took for the freeze to occur. Based on the data I will gather I will be able to submit this to SES to have them take a look into what's is at fault. Now, please note that this is mostly empirical testing, but I have not been able to play more than 5 minutes before using this new settings file. If your game isn't working anyways, what do you have to lose? Thanks. PS: If you don't mind, I would also appreciate the following information: 1. The old config file as well to be attached (please mark it old somehow in the name); 2. Tell me if your install is in the default Steam library folder (C:\Program Files) or if you are using a custom install folder for the steam library (eg where is the actual game installed on your pc) GameUserSettings.ini

    Dev Road Map

    Best User Experience Webby Award. Ha Ha Ha! Now that's comedy. I love some good sarcasm. I can rate my experience 10/10 for the past week. Mostly because I experienced GTA V a lot and it was fun since Astroneer couldn't actually keep a session running no more than a Viagra dependent man can keep things on the up in the lack of the adequate medicine. So, yeah, Astroneer did give me the best user experience playing another game. *honk-honk*.

    Dev Road Map

    Once they fix the freeze bug I will close my Discord account and stop coming to the forum. I don't feel it is worth it to get too involved. You have to constantly complain and complain before someone notices you or the problem. That is, unless some wiseass that doesn't get the same bugs you do calls you the problem, hater, says your hardware is bad (despite running the game at max with 60fps), acting all snobish and elitist, ganging up on you to tell you it's your fault for not providing a crash log (when the game doesn't output one). It's a shitshow and I'm exhausted. The biggest flaw is that the devs rely too much on the Discord server and even there the communication is very scarce. It feels off putting. It's toxic and I already screamed into the void for other developers too on games way bigger than this. And I'm tired of hearing the same low effort excuse "well, they're a small team". As if big and small is a factor that should influence the quality of communication. I'm surprised that the people on Discord that get all triggered and gang up like a cult aren't saying that the game should actually suck because they are a small dev team and being good is reserved for the big teams. It seems that as long as they are a small team everything that is bad, is not only fine, it is intended to be so. Because we all know, small businesses are the worst kind, amirite? It's the big, mega coorporations where the quality and transparency is at, right? We live in a clown world.

    possible fix for crashing

    Tested, tried the tutorial, crashed 1 minute in, this fix is not working.
