  1. I was thinking the same thing. There's almost no way the game can get the reviews it does if there is money being exchanged. Unless on the very far off chance there was a bug free version that was released to YouTubers and reviewers. I'm really not trying to sound like it's a conspiracy, because I don't think it is. I do think you may have hit the nail on the head though @The Touch of Grey Gamer. I appreciate your opinion and taking the time to post.
  2. I appreciate your comment and opinion, you could be right. It's an idea I had last night and figured it would be good to get the community's opinion.
  3. I have spent some time looking at news and review articles for Astroneer. After searching a number of articles, I have found one that has any mention of issues the game has and those mentioned are minimal at best. The second I found is about concerning EULA contents. The third is an interview where co-founder Brendan Wilson talks about the game and communication with the community. It would seem that no one outside of the forum has any idea what is truly going on with the game. I know that there are some players who do not experience the same issues as myself and others. The fact is, if y
  4. I salute you, sir. If you would like I can post the full ini file so you can see if the changes appeared on mine. I don't believe it was naive at all, at least you're investigating possibilities. If this is at least part of the crashing issue, that's just bad coding on SES's end. I'll bet you if SES gave the source code to a group of community members (like that would happen) who have experience in coding, a fix could be possible. Code may not be the whole problem but it's definitely a good place to start.
  5. The -nosound parameter works for me. FPS isn't all that great, but it is more smooth than it was before. Less jerky and that is definitely an improvement. What doesn't make sense is why having no sound does this. The sound files must take up a lot of RAM if that's the case, which is ridiculous. I shouldn't be looking a gift horse in the mouth though, so I appreciate @brookymum and whoever figured this out to begin with.
  6. I tried the fix but was not able to stay in the game for more than five minutes before crashing. Also, I couldn't get the game to boot in windowed fullscreen so I don't think my results are valid. I'm not sure how to upload attachments, so here's my info: Time: From starting game: 2:25 Loading save to crash: 3:25 .ini file settings: [ScalabilityGroups] sg.ResolutionQuality=100.000000 sg.ViewDistanceQuality=3 sg.AntiAliasingQuality=3 sg.ShadowQuality=3 sg.PostProcessQuality=3 sg.TextureQuality=3 sg.EffectsQuality=3 sg.FoliageQuality=3 [/Script/Astro
  7. The attachment download worked. Sorry for the lack of clarity.
  8. @mystikro I will test it and get back to you when I finish. Thanks a lot for your work, even if it doesn't completely pan out. At least you're trying to fix the issue. Edit: Tried to access the attachment and got an error: Sorry, there is a problem This attachment is not available. It may have been removed or the person who shared it may not have permission to share it to this location. Error code: 2C171/1 If you could PM me the attachment, I can re-try it.
  9. @brookymum Thanks, I appreciate the info. I will give it a try and cross my fingers. I'm sure it will work but with this game you never know.
  10. I don't think you're on their side @Blind Io. I've seen enough of your posts to know that. Didn't find their joke very funny is all. I apologize if I offended, it wasn't my intention.
  11. I very much agree. What about those of us who weren't apart of EA and didn't know it was a joke. The fact that we paid for the game isn't a joke, neither is the fact that a large portion of the time (since just after release in my experience) the game has been a steaming pile of unplayable . If we are so unimportant as well as many who have tried to contact SES via Discord, why don't they just shut the forum down. We're all just a bunch of whiny children apparently anyways. Yes, I am grumpy. At times I'm downright pissy. I get that if the game doesn't work 90% of the time I should fin
  12. I haven't had much chance to fiddle around with it, but I was thinking about trying out the -force-opengl or -force-d3d parameters to see if that would help at all. If you look in the game's folder, it has both D3d and OpenGL folders. The only reason I mention the parameters is when I played KSP (past-tense, waiting for money to get a better rig) I used the -opengl parameter to help with RAM usage. It did help somewhat but I don't know if anything but the devs can save Astroneer.
  13. Then the update had better come with a bigger backpack. Otherwise that's what we're going to have to deal with on top of all of the bugs. It is pure insanity to say "Well, you can't play the game because it lags/crashes/you fall through the ground. But here's a super important piece of equipment that will probably kill you on every space of uneven ground. Good luck!" I can see it now: Your Astroneer is a skid mark at the bottom of the bunny hill....for the 47th time. I just looked at the road map and can someone help me out here? What purpose does a 'space snail' have? And what is
  14. It may be that the game is calculating the height from the plant, not the ground. I'm not saying it's not an issue, just as a possibility. Kind of like the bug that made the player bounce through solid terrain or the sinking rover in earlier post-release versions.
