    Voice genders in videos - Poll

    Definitely 3. Shouldn't be of any relevance to anyone as the actual tone, the "quality" of the voice as well as personal preference matters way, way more than the sex or the age of the person speaking.

    Screenshots Megathread

    Post your awesome screenshots here! Maybe even tell a little story about it? Please remember to use the spoiler function on all your screenshots!
  3. Pretty simple. You post here, people who are interested will PM you (mind that you can invite multiple people into one PM). At this point let's be clear about that you just put yourself up to play, not to discuss (it'll become messy otherwise). Posts that do not adhere to the format below will be deleted. Example post: Platform(s): Steam Location: Germany Language(s): German, English Microphone: Yes (Discord) Looking for: 2 players Can play from: 15:00 UTC - 22:30 UTC, Friday to Sunday (optional, you're free to use whatever timezone you prefer, but I'd recommend UTC) Can host: No Comment: Usually available through Discord when online. This is an example post so do not actually PM me about playing. And here's the empty post to copy&paste:
  4. Some people requested it and I see no harm in doing that, so here it is, a place for you to introduce yourself! While it's probably not necessary, I give a short introduction myself: My name is Wyvyrias (obviously), I've been following Astroneer for more than 1 year already and eventually became a moderator for it's community. I watch over the forums (here and on Steam), our Astroneer Discord server (which I created, so it's technically still a community server) and our reddit sub. Since I had my eye on Astroneer and it's quickly growing community I've witnessed great things (can't wait for mod-support). Not only is Astroneer itself a unique game that anyone who is even remotely interest in space themed games shouldn't miss out, but also it's community is making this a quite comfortable place. I know, we still have conflicts every now and then (especially when it's about a certain other space game), but some things are just unavoidable in the wide web (people are allowed to have opinions after all), but everyone is generally being nice. Most of that is most likely due the nature of Astroneer: It's simply no PvP game. That generally results in a nice environment. Personally I am quite the PvP-player myself, but I still enjoy Astroneer a lot, especially if it's to relax and I am excited to see what the future brings! Oh, and I should mention that System Era is certainly the most awesome team I've ever seen! And I am not saying that because I am a moderator here. For a team of 7 (and the 7th having joined just recently) Astroneer shows what the real developers are actually capable of. Shows you don't need a few hundred people to create an awesome game. That said, stay awesome (all of you)!

    Holy crap, mods help this poor forum.

    I shall make no comments on who is suitable to be a moderator and who is not, but we don't exactly need more moderators right now anyway. There's rarely any urgent matters and most of the time when an actual report (outside of spam bot reports) happens, it's very opinionated and gives no reason to take any actions whatsoever. Do remember, not liking what someone is writing isn't necessarily breaking any rules. And yes, we moderators don't exactly have any direct power to promote or demote anyone, but Joe certainly promotes people based on recommendations. Gina was promptly made a moderator once I've passed that suggestion as well.

    Holy crap, mods help this poor forum.

    Nah, it's all linked to the same account. And spam bots only have one fate: An instant ban.

    Reaction to replies

    Only the developers could answer that. We can assume they read that stuff, but of course commenting would take too much time.

    Reaction to replies

    Been asking Joe for years to get that in here again. Don't get your hopes up. And as reminder: We moderators have no real power over actual forum features outside of the moderation. If you want a new section, certain features, theme changes or anything like that: We can't do it, only SES can.

    Holy crap, mods help this poor forum.

    @Marcin7667 To point it out again, you only need to report a single post of a spam bot, usually if multiple are present, even then a single one is enough (cause they're easy to spot anyway). Making multiple reports only floods the queue, the bots get completely purged on the press of a button anyway. Just as reminder.

    Holy crap, mods help this poor forum.

    It should be on the mobile version too. The forum is responsive after all.
  11. Wyvyrias

    Holy crap, mods help this poor forum.

    Such a feature exists already. Those spam bots are nothing new, please simply report one of their posts and a moderator will take care of them asap. The staff list isn't up-to-date either. For a long time I've been the only active moderator here, with Gina having joined recently to help out in the forums too. Though either way, you merely have to report posts so that any moderator or admin can react.
  12. Wyvyrias

    WHAT THE HECK?!

    Please use the report function for such things. Reporting a single post of the spam bots is enough and they'll be purged by a moderator asap.

    I am totally for that myself. But I do not make that decision. 😐

    Astroneer FAQ

    Hello and welcome to Astroneer! We've created a FAQ to cover some of the most common questions about very relevant matters.

That said, whatever your question is, it most likely has been asked and answered already. So please before creating a new thread, consider using the search function!

    How To Get Rich

    For some reason this thread has been made on an alt-account, so I'll lock here and eventually delete this. Refer to the original, for what it's worth:

    How To Get Rich

    This isn't how to get rich and it makes really no sense to begin with. You're looking for an entirely different game there.
  19. Bit late of a re-post, missed that tweet.

    April Update.....................

    Well, that CM is Joe. Members sure won't just get an official position like that.
  21. No use telling me, I am just a volunteer moderator. The community, and surely SES, is well aware of the issues. You ask the support of the platform you're using and if they approve it, you get one. If they don't, you won't get one. You most certainly won't get a refund any other way. And if you did play the game for dozens or even hundreds of hours, I doubt they'll approve a refund (and in most cases simply owning it for too long will yield no success either). In any case, SES isn't offering refunds nor are they directly responsible for those sales, the platform that you bought it on is (not sure how it works with Humble Bundle, though), as such they can't even give any.
  22. Our Discord pretty much has all the "rumors" and dev insights. Updates are about once a month anyway, though.

    Astroneer FAQ

    No, not yet. But probably once dedicated servers are out.

    Add monsters and weapons

    Nobody will get banned for suggestions (even already refused ones) unless it's simply just spam. But you'd have to re-post it a lot for that.
  25. Wyvyrias

    Add monsters and weapons

    It's already been confirmed weapons won't be a thing. If you're in for combat, this isn't the right game for you.
