  1. They have claimed more than once that the main reason for Terrain 2.0 is/was performance, it is really worrying to see it actually performs much worse than the old Terrain even if it's a very old version of Terrain 2.0. I'm sceptical of the release, they can't even rely on user feedback anymore. The last update is too old.
  2. It matters, faster hardware gives more fps.

    Thoughts on the Pre 1.0 release

    This is fine for you but I'm sure the majority of players will be annoyed by this because the old planets were much more fun to navigate. The problem is also the driving physics which clearly doesn't work on a rough terrain.

    Update 0.10.5 - November 14, 2018

    Yes it is completely useless on this planet because of the sharp landscape and poor physics from the buggy, no fun at all, this is a complete fail imho. And custom steering isn't even working. The fact that such basic things are still broken makes me wonder if some additional 6 weeks can be enough for them to release a polished 1.0, I don't think they can do this to be honest. The next big worry is the performance hit from Terrain 2.0, yes I'm aware the new planet may be unoptimized but the performance degradation is immense and they were praising Terrain 2.0 for the much improved performance over the old Terrain months ago, once again I doubt they can do this till 1.0. Render distance isn't even great for some objects, there are some severe detail pop ups.

    Update 0.10.5 - November 14, 2018

    The PAX West version was different, several features from there are not included in the update, they will save this for version 1.0.

    Update 0.10.5 - November 14, 2018

    Some time ago they told Terrain 2.0 is made with performance improvements in mind over the old system, even though in this demo it runs worse. They said it isn't optimized at all, we will see.
  7. There is a new QA video, the answer is No. They need additional time for polish and bugfixing.

    Update 0.10.5 - November 14, 2018

    Custom buttons from keyboard for the buggy seems broken, it won't accelerate on a custom button, only the left and right steering key button work. Tested on this terrain 2.0 map.
  9. Astroneer now has a release date, February 6th, 2019! https://youtu.be/sO2cIlXcHZU No wonder the update is so late in November because the game has been delayed. This reflects the slow update progress and delays of bigger features in EA, not that surprising after all.
  10. At some point the last update doesn't even make sense so close to version 1.0. Since mid July we have got only one minor and one bigger update, really disappointing how early access has evolved over the last months.
  11. November? They should aim for early November if this is the case because otherwise the last Early Access update would be rather pointless so close to the Astroneer 1.0 release.
  12. At PAX they said all current planets will be converted to Terrain 2.0 and I doubt we will have Terrain 1.0 planets in Astroneer 1.0 because of the performance benefits from the new terrain. It would be crazy if they only have 1 planet based on Terrain 2.0 after the long work.

    True or False

    It could make sense but there is not much time left before release in two months. Even if we get Terrain 2.0 this month our feedback and reports won't have a big impact till December because it's too late. This is a fail and a waste of bug testing opportunities from a bigger fanbase in my opinion. Same for dedicated servers. By now the game must be in beta state in order to be released in two months. And our game is in alpha state without the important core stuff - big fail.
