  1. I think I started that particular save on But I'm not certain. Also, this could be something that's only affecting my save, or only a select number of saves. Or maybe It has nothing to do with the version of the game ... I don't know.
  2. There was a German guy streaming it on twitch yesterday, with >25.000 viewers. Maybe he reached some new astroneers.
  3. I loaded up my save which I last played in v.0.2.115 with the newer expirimental version 0.2.117, and thethers don't seem to work anymore. They no longer light up blue and my astroneer will no longer tether to them. System: PC, Win7 Pro, Steam i5 3570k, GTX970, 2560x1440p, 16GB RAM So I loaded my 0.2.115 save in 0.2.117. Thethers are drak as if they're unpowered. In this screenshot I had already picked them up, put them into my backpack and then replaced them in their line. But replacing them had no effect. Returning to the base, I do seem to thether up to the base.
  4. Oh, I don't mind my own language either (Grüße aus die Niederlande). It's just that the translations aren't very good. A lot seems to get lost in the translation, and some of it is just ... wrong. Sometimes things are just better in the original language. Like most movies. I do believe this issue is already on the dev's radar, and adding a language option to the menu is somewhere on their list. But this isn't a performance issue, bug, something that could make the game crash, or anything like that. So I suspect it won't be at the top of their list.
  5. @Proxy Dude, THANK YOU ! This works! I had already found that setting, and attemted a "-en" modifier. But that didn't work of course. It's not so simple if you don't know the correct variable and value to set.
  6. @Vin The Butcher I did dig up the whole plant. Maybe I should have made a screenshot of that too. It's kind of an anemone dug into the ground with only it's top showing. I researched the research the plant had on top, but I've already researched everything, so nothing new there. @CherubimCW & @Cardinal Lord Zebra Ball is very demanding. To prove my worthiness he demanded I'd construct him a pedestal so he could keep watch over his dominion and pass judgement on all. Lord Zebra Ball grows more and more demanding. A mere pedestal won't keep him content for much longer. I fear he
  7. I kind of like the challenge on going out there, somewhere, and then later being able to find my way home regardless of where I am. You can navigate using use the stars in the sky. Their direction of travel will tell you which way is east or west. And the angle the milky way is at in the sky will help you gauge your longtitude. If the milky way is straight over head, you are on the equator. But when you move towards the poles the angle of the milky way in the sky will change.
  8. Look up. You can use the milky way to guide you. If it is straight over head, then you are on the equator. Move towards the poles and the angle of the milky way in the sky will change. This way you can guess your longtitude just by looking up. By the movement of the milky way you can see which way is east and which way is west. If you know roughly at which longtitude your base is, and you know roughly in which direction you've travelled, you can also find your way back again. Leaving a trail of beacons behind also helps. Even if you're elready lost, do that. You can look back at t
  9. Actualy landing on a gas giant would be quite the challenge. It would need to have a solid core to land on. It is speculated that Jupiter and Saturn have a molten rocky core. Let's argue that the pressure wouldn't crush your capsule or suit, and the heat wouldn't cook you or melt your base. Then you would be in a perpetual storm. Because of their high mass it's more common for gas giants to have multiple moons. That could be interesting too. Perhaps we could meet some Slylandro.
  10. I believe it does the same as hematite: Nothing! (not yet at least).
  11. I went exploring with my rover, and amids a mountain range on terran I found this. I had not seen this one before. It was new for me. It looks like it belongs under water, attached to a reef or something. Inside was a dark purple research pod with red spots. I didn't think I had that one before either, so I placed a beacon and went back for it with my train of trucks. It was quite a trek. I do hope they improve the suspension on these trucks in a future update. And perhaps the elastic umbilicals between the trucks could be replaced by more sturdy coupling.
  12. Can we hijack your thread and turn it into the general screenshot thread? I'm using 3 daisychained trucks at the moment, with a seat on each end. Sometimes you get stuck on the rocks, and having another drivers' seat on the other end can help to pull it free again. I'll try to remember to make a screenshot of this thing loaded up with loot next time.
  13. Unlimited oxygen will take away the challenge. It'll take away from the game. Perhaps if there are ever going to be difficulty modes? I would imagine: easy: Oxygen lasts double the time. normal: As it is now. Hard: Normal oxygen use, but your base and vehicles have a limited supply. Habitats and vehicles don't produce oxygen, but only come with a tank of it. Gather oxygen to replenish. Add large tanks to your base, like the batteries for energy. Your habitat comes with a limited tank of oxygen, enough to last a couple days to get started and gather some oxygen reserves,
  14. Short: The options menu could do with an option to choose your language. Long: I personaly prefer to game in English, so I don't have to deal with any translations that are off. I'm Dutch, my OS is set to Dutch, so I presume that is why the game defaults to Dutch as well. Now, the Dutch translations in the game are ... well ... let's just say the game is pre-alpha and that includes the translations. It's as if everything in game has been translated off site by someone who hasn't seen the game and isn't aware of the context. A few examples: - "thethers" (EN) have been tran
