    Automated Shuttle

    dispatching a reasonably well laden spare shuttle on an automated flight to a planet or moon or your choice that you were going to in the future to wait to be used again.if you could manufacture a series of such shuttles that have been loaded for resources or whatever and sent to bases on planets or moons which desperately need them and can be unloaded and reloaded with cargo or resources for a return flight.. which raises a little question. Do full hydrazine canisters that are carried as cargo automatically replace empty ones on the hydrazine fuelled rocket engine?
  2. It is a small point but valid nonetheless.+1

    Automated Shuttle

    I hate to disagree but I wouldnt say limited at all. Indespensible I would say actually.Such a thing has many uses.but the greatest would be for carrying extra cargo to a specified planet base and then wait.

    Automated Shuttle

    My idea involves the quick transporting of equipment boxes to planet bases. First imagine the player has a base on Vesania or Glacio for instance and the bases must have twin landing pads or a large printed BASEPAD with twin landing pads (which doesnt exist yet). The player on Sylva is going to Vesania with a large shuttle but cannot fit everything they need onto it but rather than cart the goods between the two planets and take two trips and they have a spare medium shuttle that can carrying that one last piece of stores they need. The player can tap into the shuttle like any other Astroneer hardware and select on a menu a planet they have bases with the large landing pads and tell the shuttle to go there and wait. Then the Astroneer takesoff in the large shuttle and when they arrive at Vesania the other shuttle is waiting on the 2nd pad to unload. And then the process can be reversed or they can send the shuttle off to another destination to wait again. .could that actually be possible?

    road building drill

    or I had a better idea yet have one that collects and converts soil and rocks and such matter .into. paths so that as the astroneer goes chomping along the ground scooping up soil they are at the same time laying down roads genius!!! then have say a bulk amount of made up tethers on the back somewhere and as your road is laid tethers are placed alongside automatically.WoW!! now that sounds like something pretty neat.hmm

    The Evolution of Astroneer (Video)

    just found this. amazing how just a little off the wall indie game can take the whole world by storm. great to see much the love and devotion to it has paid off. how much more can you guys pack into Astroneer. (smirk) when the video ended there was a tiny tear in my eye I love this game

    road building drill

    long overdue.only niggle I see is the gargantuan amount of soil this would need to do what it does. just a suggestion ..I'd be more inclined to research and then have the large printer print a made-for-purpose road maker that hugs the ground laying paths while it clears away trees and rocks

    Suggestion - Toggle Compass Always On

    thats definitely a fair point.I've always wondered why the compass was so clunky. being bale to toggle on or off would be an advantage especially in vehicles.

    Buggy Rebalance

    I agree. my entry point for mass transportation of resources is the tractor and three trailers.the buggy I always found to be like trying to drive a balloon.it bounced around so much and nearly always flipped over from the slightest bump or rock onto its roof which made you get out and flip it and drive on. in a word..annoying.

    I have an idea for the use of Astronium.

    Interesting. Astronium is only found at the core so that puts Astronium at the apex of the resource tree.must be right?. so..if you can gather enough and then refine it in a certain way it can be used to make something like a planetary resource scanner that can be set for each planet or moon and once switched on directs you towards what you to wish to gather prehaps even giving a rough distance as well.useful wouldnt you say

    ASTROpack: advanced backpack!

    For me I'd invent the bulk backpack..just to through it out there. You start by upgrading to eight extra storage on the top row for 50,000 research points . then after 50,000 more points or something like you can research the extra eight storage points on the third row.And then finally the culmination an extra two utility points on the corners for a further 50,000.Voila !Now fully loaded with every storage point taken the Astroneer would not be able to move as fast as he/she did before the upgrade but at least now you can carry a great deal more.
  12. I had this happen to me. I ran the gauntlet of what it could be. unreal engine out of date.no visual C+++ out of date .no directx11 out of date.no videocard drivers out of date.no even to the point of my motherboard bios being out of date.no still happened so I did the -nosound prefix and nope still happened.run as administrator.no antivirus .no still happened I then re-installed a fresh copy of windows 10. no I did everything humanely possible to see what was wrong.then it also happened on when I played other games using the unreal engine.Aha !! I shutdown and pulled out my Geforce 1060 and put in an old 9600GT I still had and it worked. of course I had to use some old drivers from 2017 and turn my graphic settings down but it worked playing astroneer and no crashes.Took the faulty card back to where I bought it and they confirmed it is buggered and because its still under warranty I'm covered for either a refund or exchange.hope this helps
