  1. I was just working on a new base so I leveled out the ground and got everything nice and smooth and then I build a smelter..and got my astroneer stuck in it. In an attempt to jog him free I quit the game to the main menu when I logged back in he was still stuck and the ground around my base has risen up around it. It still looks pretty smooth but it now covers the nodes.. You can just make out my head poking out the smelter in the screen shot and the subsidence is really obvious. Does anyone know a way to kill yourself and respawn at base?

    Solar Panels Not Working

    Same on the Steam version it seems to be a area of effect issue. In my experience If you are near the power source when it starts generating it will charge things but if you are more than about 2 tether lengths away OR are in a hab or vehicle when the charging starts no energy gets transmitted. Wind turbines have the same bug. It's super annoying to be driving along in your truck with the wind vanes going full speed then come to a stop because you ran out of energy..

    I think there was someone who was trying to erase the moon. He gave up after awhile because the lag was intense.

    Custom Astroneer Figure

    You actually can do that to some extent. You have to break it down into small pieces so it will go into the filastruder most people I know who are doing it use a modified shredder or a blender/food processor. There is a limit to the number of times you can reuse the plastic though so it's recommended you mix your recycled plastic with new plastic pellets. https://www.filastruder.com/

    Forum bug maybe

    We are getting hit by a bot for some Korean casino in the general forums. So I do what any sensible person does and hit ignore to block them. I then go back to the General Forum and while their posts are blocked the topics they create are still visible.

    it's a thruster you can attach it to your rover and put some hydrazine in at and go zoom.
  7. This is a known bug the vehicles either glitch underground or launch off into space see. Since everything disappeared I am betting on space. Keep an eye on the sky if you can get close enough they will fall back down. Other than that try logging out then back in sometimes they have glitched back for me.

    Prison is save point pod,prisoner

    This is a common issue and as far as I can tell there is no way out. It might be fixed after the next update. The Key elements seem to be a habitat that is sitting on the ground but not yet deployed, and A lack of the deploy habitat button above the habitat. In the future a one seat vehicle gives you the same safety as the habitat and doesn't have any glitches. Also habitats on vehicles don't seem to have any problems.
  9. The 660 is a fairly old card almost 5 years the first thing I would do is make sure you have the most up to date drivers from Nvidia (and check your mb drivers as well). Sometimes the Microsoft supplied drivers are older versions and buggy. After that it sounds like you have done everything else already and the only thing left to do is replace the card. Depending on the vendor you might still be under warranty.

    Vehicle Help !!!

    Getting it back on is unlikely unless you haven't saved in awhile (before it glitched off) and are willing to give up all your progress and load a old save. Getting rid of it might be as easy as pushing it with a truck..if the truck doesn't work try picking up a tether and using that to shove it around. Then dig a hole a cover it up.

    How important is system memory?

    Yes right now the game isn't very optimized so it's a resource hog. 4gb is barely enough to run windows 10 so Astoneer is choking out on the scraps left over.

    Planet Travel Distance

    You can cut some of the wait time down by jumping to Radiated it orbits the fastest and usually gets into range of all the planets within 5 minutes or so. It does take a bit more fuel. The other option is to watch the sky when the planets are near they get huge then you go take off and hop over there.

    Got tired of getting hit upside the head with flying blocks so I built a bunker. I
  15. I wouldn't mind the controls if there was a way to go into first person view. Half the time my camera is clipped inside the load or the crane or whatever I just passed..it's become a game of Aim at what you are heading to and pray..

    Picking Up Teathers Causes Deletion

    If you keep the left upper slot open or have a unfinished rack of tethers there you can shift click and they will auto load. Anything else and they go poof.

    Parking Brakes

    I usually go around my truck and level out the ground with the deform tool. Then I "chock" the wheels by building up a mound of dirt in behind the crane.

    So I got tired of chasing my vehicles all over the planet when they floated away...so I just made a base up there. Welcome to Sky-Hab the cutting edge in Astroneer habitats currently in low Terran orbit.. In case of emergency exits are here ..and here ..and here ..and here ..and here ..and here..and here..well pretty much everywhere.

    Use of wind energy during storms

    My wind strategy is to make lots of wind vanes and place them everywhere..You soon start to see a pattern some will turn all the time some sometimes and some never. You find the most reliable wind spots and put a board of 8 wind vanes there. Don't bother with the turbines they produce less energy per space than the vanes and they take a higher wind speed to get started than the vanes. Building up on tops of hills or making a ramp and building up it helps with finding really good wind spots.

    Can we use spaceship parts?

    That it is search the forums for Giant Solar Panel for info on how to set it up.

    Can someone tell me what this is.

    Those are your bases and vehicles on the other planets they show up in the sky above the north and south poles of a planet. You can use them to navigate with because they don't move. But yea a bug.

    Civil discourse

    So as I was digging through the forums looking for tips, tricks, cool screenshots and such. I happened to come across a series of posts that were higher in saline concentration that one would expect. We are all here because we are having fun with Astroneer. For a pre Alpha game it's oodles of fun. Part of that fun is the open ended quality it has no defined rules for winning. There is no one true way to play the game. Those people with the 10 fuel condensers and 3 trade stations as long as they are having fun..they are playing the game. Those people building micro bases all over Terran they are playing the game. Those people trying to mine Barren away they are playing the game. ect. Just because someone is having fun in a way different than you doesn't diminish your enjoyment of the game. If you don't like X game asset don't use it, but also please don't snark all over someone who does. There is always another person on the other side of the internet from you, Be kind to one another.

    Planet of choice?

    I have had mixed success with Tundra my first base there was on the top of a mountain and it really sucked I had to create giant ramps to get anywhere and barely found any resources. The game I am currently playing my Tundra base is on the top of a flat hill and there are tons of resources around me. It's quite fun. My personal favorite is Exotic even with the super weeds there are always lots of research pods around and plenty of resources real easy to establish a base and get to the exploring.
  25. This one is mostly just my opinion. When using the deform tool I am constantly hitting the right mouse button trying to shift from dig to fill. Today I went into options to bind that key to do that and I discovered that it wasn't a option. I know it's used to move the camera around but really I think half the glitching that happens when I am mining happens because the camera moves and encounters a solid object then it spins the viewpoint a full 360. So my proposal is when the deform tool is out. So the Right mouse button giveith and the Left mouse button takeith And the Center button (if you have one ) Smoothith
