  1. As a way to get resources that you might be short on I feel the mine->smelt->craft->shred->trade route is completely acceptable. I also think this is probably a bit wasteful and not the most efficient means to the end, but sometimes you got other stuff you wanna do other than fly off to some other planet.
  2. use the ingots to make stuff, then shred that. Aluminum into wind genny, then shred, copper into worklight then shred, etc.
  3. Hmms, the whole salvage thing is a bit tricky. If the salvageable bits are too rare then it's not worth building the shredder and the trade station. I kinda fell the same as the OP, the wrecks are a bit too common right now.
  4. Pretty certain that piloting from the Habitation module was around last patch. And why is\was it an exploit?
  5. When you die, items slotted into the Aux ports no longer respawn with your Astroneer. Is this a bug or intended behavior?
  6. Add deployed Dropship to the list of things dynamite won't destroy.
  7. As it isn't in the patch notes and we used to have this functionality, I consider this a bug.
  8. No its not. This habitat aka Dropship is not enter-able and cannot be used to pilot vehicles. It's only use is as a refuge from the storms and then only after it has been "deployed".
  9. Wondering same thing.....Dropship is also now not a viable driving seat.
  10. The Smelter is now randomly spitting finished ingots onto the ground instead of slotting into available adjacent storage slots.
  11. Hmmm....I think you might be right. Used to be able to put the 3 seater on the medium......
  12. When the open 3-seat printed sideways on my medium rover I decided to use the dynamite that I had found to remove the wonky seat. Placed dynamite squarely on back of middle seat, long pressed E and ran......boom.....hole in ground and open 3-seat was still there. So I thougth OK Ill blow the rover out from underneath it. Placed another dynamite charge on the wheel of the rover, activated and ran....boom....rover and seat are still there and hole is bigger.
  13. When printing a Open 3-seat onto a medium rover the seat prints side ways.
  14. Odd....I'm wearing one of the Astroneer T-shirts I bought. Same thoughts as above, good quality fabric, not that really thin crap. Colors are bright and fade resistant, same for the graphic.
  15. Confusing....the post date is July 19, but the title says August 6. Can Joe see the future?
  16. Tried searching this section and didn't see it mentioned and online help mentions Extenders, but doesn't tell me how to deploy them. So how do I deploy Extenders?
  17. Weird...I have up to date chrome and clicking timeline just resets it back to 0.
  18. Mixer replays are not very friendly. You can't advance the video and in fact clicking the timeline resets it! Just watched first 7 minutes of devs working and it reset. Won't be watching them for another 7 minutes to get back to where I was.
  19. Good post! I too would like to have more background and to see where the story is going.
  20. Nice Post @CobraA1 ! I agree with Cobra's assessment of the current control scheme. The other thing that I noticed is that the action to remove a module from a base is too easy to perform now. This is one action that would benefit from the long press metaphor.
  21. Work light is same way. Change texture or something so that we have a clue what the facing is. i'm thinking on the work light to put a small vertical stripe or notch in the blue band around the base.
  22. Saw this too...pretty cool System Era!
