    The Crafting Update Feedback Megathread

    Coming back after a while of a break and my first impression is I love it!! I like the catalogue of recipes being a sort of printer controller built into the backpack. Just a bit of feedback as I have been playing maybe an hour and these are my first impressions. Sorry if they aren't too deep! When I was sitting at my printer well within the concrete pad, I died. I guess I wasn't connected to oxygen..oops! I just thought it odd I was inside the safe pad but died. I really like how the research works and gives a certain amount of data per minute like a currency. This felt really nice, and that I could gather a bunch and unlock stuff. A really nice goal. I did notice though that when I was looking through what to unlock...I couldn't really understand what I was seeing. No tooltips or anything to let me know what an unlock even really does. I thought that was a bit annoying because I wasn't sure if a 3,000 bytes item was worth it or a 500 bytes one. The ones that I felt the most confused on are the ones called "mods" I seem to think that, wow, tethers have no range now. When I played a bit ago they had a nice distance. Now I am cluttering the ground often. Not sure if that's what you wanted, as sort of a compound sink to get far. *shrug* I really like how when I wandered around I found some sort of fruit hanging from tree, and it was a research item! I wasn't a fan of the old digging up trees to get a nut and take it back to the analyzer. This feels much better. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to salvage these junk items of debris all over the place. My base started me near an almost identical setup, that is just damaged. I hover over the item to salvage, even try and use my vacuum gun, but nothing works. Help? I really like all the different materials that I have found! It makes me want to explore a lot. I would really like it if there was some sort of more detailed catalogue that I could read through, telling me about the minerals or whatever I have found and have a really nice model of it or something in the middle of the page, like a really detailed analysis of what I found. I feel that there should be a ton of more items and mods coming! I love the research / unlock things aspect. It is a lot of fun. Can I do nothing in my ship while I sit there waiting out storms? I would love to read the above catalogue, maybe draw a rough map or something of what is around me. I feel that there are not enough mapping tools available to me to actually plot out the terrain around me, actually explore and mark stuff. Thanks for this update, it feels very nice.

    I got robbed

    The amount of misinformation and opinionation in this post is absolutely astounding. Who gaf what PC someone uses? And you sit here ripping into people for their choice of hardware? Take a pic of you in your clothes so the internet can rip into a personal choice you made in the fashion world. Absolutely ridiculous. 1. MACs can get viruses. 2. Stop trollin People are not dumb for selecting a MAC, they're people like you and me. They had a process with which they processed information and arrived at a choice based upon what they had available. This doesn't make them dumb. It makes them arrive at a choice different than you, to which, for some reason you have a problem. To me, that sounds like a huge personal issue. I count 5 posts where all you did was insult people and bash a large company for no other reason than their opinion differed than your own. This is an incredibly devolved state of mind to be in, and I hope you can overcome it and treat people as they should equals, with the capabilities to make choices independently from your approval.

    Familiarize yourself before posting?

    I guess I have no idea why what someone else posted and how many copies of said post existing on a forum have anything to do with retarding innovation and creativity in the community. I go to the suggestions forum, hit new post, type my suggestion, go back to astroneer. If people are literally searching like "I wonder if anyone has submitted my idea yet so I can submit it"...well.. that is their own personal issue.

    So what if they are drowned out? The devs also have access to the next page button, and likely are more active about back-searching. If a million ideas were posted today, it wouldn't be would mean there are a million ideas the devs have to "choose from" The devs still have to follow the same procedure. Look at idea. How hard is it to program? DO other people like this? Can we fit it in? etc. The number of posts has literally nothing to do with this until you reach a number of posts per minute that it's impossible to manage by any human. The duplicate posts also help devs gauge community interest. If there was one amazing idea that was suggested, and 150 duplicates for a similar idea, which one do you think the devs would program? The 150 duplicates...

    Mining Researchable Items

    If only there was a way to widen the tunnel like dynamite or ramming speed or...the terrain tool

    The moderators are already combining alike posts into larger ones. It is the forum owners responsibility to curate/filter/combine content, and is definitely not that of the end-user/purchaser of the game. Such a small percentage of people interact and suggest things on the forum as it is, doing something like you suggest would really just make people not use the forums. The goal of this forum is to spark conversation between developer and the end-user. The fact that there are duplicate topics in a suggestion forum with thousands of posts means it is working. A developer that sees 25 posts about something that is on the road-map shouldn't cause frustration, but enthusiasm... Let the people submit as many billions of ideas as possible, it's the responsibility of the developers who have opened such a forum and method of communication to receive and handle the flood. There are not so many posts per day that a single person could not combine and sort the duplicate posts. I will not be reading the road map. I will be providing my suggestions independently of the assumed direction of the game based on my personal experiences with the game as it progresses. To many, the road-map is "spoilers", same as patch notes with many games. I want to experience what is new and added on my own, without reading a post that could inspire a bit of false ideas of where the game may go, because road-maps change constantly, especially at this stage of development. Cheers.

    Autophase Backpack

    Suggestion: A Backpack with additional tech that makes deep cavernous retrieval nightmares a thing of the past. My idea is regarding how impossible it is to retrace steps in deep cave exploration when surviving "wall to wall" stripping power & Oxygen from the caves without tethers. "Autophasing Pack. Allows immediate pin-pointing of sub terraneous corpses. Upon death, all energy is extracted from oxygen and power reserves, converting into a powerful beam. A single hole is pierced through the vertical layers until it hits sunlight/surface air. A mini beacon is created by consuming the pack frame material, creating a single-use beacon that is destroyed upon corpse/backpack retrieval."

    Need Ability To Delete Save Game

    I have like 10 saved games PLEASE ADD THIS.
  9. I have multiple times messed up terrain because the tooltip becomes the same color as terrain I am trying to dig. Being red/green colorblind doesn't help the matter. I propose a complementary color changing of the tool tip, to allow high contrast for the user
  10. In multiplayer game: If my backpack is full and I continue to harvest, the overage gets deposited on the ground as normal...however, nobody is able to pick them up!
  11. Cannot retrieve items from smelter in 2 of 4 slots. If looking at smelter, the Left top, and Right Bottom items became irretrievable. When I put 4 ore in, it also put the finished product "over" the bugged slots items, but did not displace them...instead, it stacked, or absorbed, or deleted, the finished ore. Upon re-logging, the Right Bottom slot moved to the Right Top...and is still irretrievable.
  12. This has happened to me quite a few times. I believe it is actually at like 95% power or something, and is just SHOWING the bars completely full (bad rounding.) and the station also doesn't seem to update that there is an item present at full power (the two requirements to show research icon.) I see in your screenshot it is dark, and you have wind and solar generators. Do you have any biomass generators that provide power outside of daytime? Wind turbine seems to be very bad performance-wise. It might be that your power grid hasn't COMPLETELY powered your researcher yet, though it looks it.... Or.. It might be caused by the station not recognizing it has an item plugged in AND IS NOW full power. I just took my item out and back in and the research icon showed up. If you just remove and re-insert your research, will it allow you to open the research nut?
  13. I have this problem too! I honestly thought it was because I slammed into my base, and did not notice it was near a connection point! Good find
  14. OK, so I generally try to keep a good look on my compass to see which direction I am exploring. I happened to go around a very shallow mountain and long story short got lost to death. I wandered trying to catch sight of my beacons I had placed or my home tooltip icon or luck, dead, also couldn't find corpse because THAT tooltip is also hidden by terrain. The problem is this: Objects disappear or are rendered further away or "lower" at elevation as they get further away. This causes the home icon and other icons to be completely obstructed by changes in elevation. The lower elevation that your base starts at, the more screwed you are. This is because the leader length to the balloon doesn't seem to adjust much, and is less visible the more higher elevation objects exist around it...meaning if you start in a valley, you're basically screwed. Surrounded by mountains, screwed. The leader lines and the balloons representing HOME and ship etc, need to be increased in length the further away you get from them. This would allow you to see their absolute position regardless of the curvature of the..Terra? I do not believe that taking a turn around a small hill should completely screw me.
