    Artwork Megathread

    Post your (or other people's -don't forget to name them-) awesome Astroneer artwork here (posters made through edits count as artwork, too, but no memes etc)! Do not forget to use the spoiler function on your pictures.
  2. That is in fact an option that has been mentioned. #JoeTime will show where this all will go soon enough.
  3. Preference. I haven't gotten that feeling from any forum for a long time now.
  4. There's no huge difference really. Forum threads can escalate just as much and become the same mess. The forum format merely gives less incentive to and keeps discussions more "rigid". If you wanted a lasting conversation about the same topic on Discord, you'd move to DM's. And one or two questionable images slipping through is really no example for "hard to moderate". That's just cherry picking. Moderating is about the same everywhere. If anything it's even easier on Discord, since we have more tools available there.

    Suggestion - fuck the spam

    Spam bots be spam bots. Report one if you see it or just wait for someone else to notice it. The issue is known and there's no use pointing it out any further.
  6. For one person falsely expecting us to do something we're not expected to do? Hmm... You might want to quit your complaining and simply join the Discord instead. All the information is there and easily accessible. Until the bot becomes capable of re-posting into this forum, at least.
  7. FTFY. Moderators aren't being paid for their services after all.

    The Creative Update - November 15th, 2019

    I am not gonna argue about what SES is saying, but Astroneer definitely is not a game that anyone, who familiar with survival games, would call a survival game. Oxygen is all you need, it's essentially infinite (as long as you stay on tethers) and hazards are extremely easy to avoid. And in case you die anyway, you simply respawn at your last habitat/shuttle. No real consequences. The bare minimum for a survival game would be things that push you to act, such as food, water, a constant threat chasing you, something that will make you lose almost all or all your progress. None of that exists in Astroneer. I feel like the "Space exploration, survival game" thing is just something they roll with. For people who never touched any games, I am sure it would seem survival enough. Knowing it, I'd never call it a survival game, though.

    Make Endgame unaccesable in creative

    People know this is a CREATIVE mode. It's a literal no-limits-sandbox experience. If a new player starts with this mode, expecting to not be spoiled...well, what can I say? What else do you expect to happen? You cannot tell me someone starts up the creative mode and digs through several moons and planets, obtains the "keys" and places them into their sockets, all by accident, not wanting to spoil anything. I'd see some appeal in locking items that you haven not yet unlocked/discovered in the regular mode. That sort of cross-mode connection would be an interesting feature on it's own. It would make people more curious and encourage them to experience the game. But that's an extra, not a given.

    Simply report such posts without commenting on them. Moderators are perfectly able to edit posts. Also lets not be harsh with things that don't deserve that treatment. The game is not meant to be challenging. If you bought it for a survival experience, you didn't read what you were buying. And the lack of true flat, while annoying, is not really game breaking either. OCD triggering? Yes. Worth making a fuss over? Nah. They'll fix it eventually, if possible.

    The Groundwork Update - October 24th, 2019

    I definitely saw people saying they wouldn't bother with an update without knowing what's in there. But as I am not going to dig up such posts, this statement is about as credible as you implying there's any need or interest for non-spoiler patch notes. No, I am merely stating the obvious and suggesting a simple solution for your issue. I could not care less about you spoiling your own experience, that's your own fight with yourself. You know where the leaks are and come from. You can avoid all those places. Although your original point was about the patch notes, which you can easily ignore to avoid any sort of spoilers. It's a little odd for you to complain about too much hand holding, but apparently ask for hand holding in controlling your own consumption of information. Also I suggest to distance your feelings and personal interpretations from mere text messages, it won't do you any good and, frankly, just seem weird. I am just here to offer help and suggestions. You may or may not agree with what I write, but that doesn't change it's intent.

    The Groundwork Update - October 24th, 2019

    The vehicle air control is what one considers quality of life, though. It'll quality as an actual feature only if combined with thrusters, essentially giving us hard to control planes. Remember you're not the only person playing this game. Many would not want to bother playing without knowing all the details. Which brings us to: Simple. Just don't read the patch notes or skip straight to the bug fixes, it's very clear where they are so you can go there without reading the rest by accident. This is definitely a you problem. Or do you read guides of puzzle games and complain about the puzzles being too easy?

    The Groundwork Update - October 24th, 2019

    Merged some posts and cut quotes. Please remember to not quote the OP. There is no need to have the patch notes twice in here.
  16. 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:

    Why do Mineral research (and others) change colors

    Adjusted the title to reflect the content. And try to avoid pinging developers. Although I'd assume they switched off pings anyway, cause otherwise they'd get flooded with notifications.
  18. 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)!

    What's your username on Discord? I'll look it up in the logs and see what was the issue.

    splitscreen for xbox

    No, splitscreen has never been on the roadmap and isn't a consideration at all, currently. It seems unlikely to ever happen.

    New achievements on Xbox One?

    It's great you're curious and eager to see new things, but to avoid any spoilers, I redacted the relevant contents. Apologies! Those things have been done as test and aren't supposed to be public yet. A little oversight I would assume. It shouldn't be much longer until the Wanderer Update, so hold out until then!
