    Add helper robots

    With bases becoming so large and complex i feel that it would be helpful to add a base part that creates a set of S.A.W (self automated workers) to help you do mulitple things at once from one terminal and/ or search for resources. It could be somthing you could add to a rover aswell to search for and tell you where resource nodes are.
  2. Astroneer is a great game. I was around way before the 1.0 update and loved the game. The 1.0 update was bettet than i imagined. The terrain, planets, and even the machines looked EPIC But, There are 3 things i think would make the game way better. ROBOTS A little bot could make the game a whole lot cooler. Im not asking for the dev team to make a gigantic terminator planet dissasembler powered by the might of zeus. A little bot (the size of the player) that could recieve commands given by the player (Mine, create a tether line etc...) would make the game really feel like it is generations beyond our current space travel is. The robot could have teirs. The robot could be a vehicle mod (like the mods for the terrain tool) that makes the vehicle do things. to make this not too overpowered the first tier could be 1 zinc and 1 ammonium for the Mod version of it. The mod version of the robot would require a storage (like a medium storage on a small rover). The modification could be given Astronium from sylva and become its own thing (Once astromium is given it consumes the vehicle and astronium and becomes a better bot). I know that a major update has just come out but maybe by the end of the year this could be added. Vehicles Astroneer has a couple vehicles but i think a couple more would be good. A Mod (like the terrain tool ones) that can be added to a vehicle and give it abilities would be pretty nice. By abilities i mean like faster speed, Ability to hold platforms that are not packaged etc. If the dev team does create oceans for planets, a submarine or a boat that can be grounds for a base in the ocean would be AWESOME. These vehicles can be crafted at a Vehicle Bay. Better Drills. the second i learned that the planets core had a gateway chaimber i crafted a drill, attached it to my rover and nose dived into the ground. The drills in the game as of current are pretty useful. The drills make resource gathering more fun when you can just plow through anything like butter. I only have 2 problems with the drills. 1. You cant change the angle that the drill is drilling unless you manuver yourself in that certain way. 2. The drill makes holes that you can walk through by foot but does NOT place concrete (the thing that you can place with the canister and terrain tool). If the drill can change its angle and, the drill can place concrete under it when it in inevitably drills throgh the toof of a cave. The drill should have a Mod slot that can take modifications. For example a Builder Mod that digs holes and places concrete when it drills into a hole/cave.
  3. ROBOTS My brother and I were playing the latest version last weekend and started setting up atmospheric condensers on different planets to gather specific resources. We would go do other things and then planet hop back to those planets to gather up the resources that were made. This led us to start talking about how cool it would be to be able to build mini resource gathering bases scattered all over the solar system, where you have a team of robot workers that would do the gathering for you. All you do is setup these bases, let them do their thing and then return to gather up what they produced. Obviously, you don't want this feature to be easily accessible, where you don't have to do any scavenging yourself. Once it's up, there could be maintenance that is required. Robots break down and require specific resources to repair. We love the inter-planetary travel aspect of this game really enjoy jumping to different planets to gather resources. Thought this would be a cool idea to expand your base and resource production to a new level. WINDMILL I was also thinking about how there is the larger solar array for solar power but there is no "large" equivalent for wind power. There should be a large windmill that you can create. Have a wind farm to get all the power you need for your base!
  4. 1. There should be robots that can be assigned to collect things or do other things that can be helpful to the player. They should take power to make them less overpowered. They should also have different models that do different things for you; like: cranes, or small/big walking robots. 2. There should also be forcefields to protect your base from storms or other things that get added. They could also take power to have turned on all the time.

    Electronics and Automation

    From some gameplay of Astroneer I would love to see some automation and simple electronic systems. For instance, a cable system set up to power lights everyday and night, by a stronger generator with an advance solar panel all connected together. These cables can be placed to power different machines and different types of batteries, perhaps a robot-like pet who needs energy to survive and can help carry more items, attack potential enemies, or even spot out rare resources. An automated routine for him to return to the base when he is low could be a command made by the player, or else the robot may lose power and require lithium batteries. Once he returns the player may have an automated dock for the robot to dump storage into crates unorganized and to charge its power back up, once fully powered up he will run to the player to attend his adventures. The storage could also be automated with advance machines that organize items that the player or robot dumps off. Furthermore, the robots can be commanded to not follow the player but to constantly organize or transfer resource from a quarry. These robots can be little spiders, dogs, cats, birds, dragons, really anything beastly. Next, a quarry that is powered by the cables could take lots of energy but can mine an area overtime to provide resources in a certain area. Robots can be commanded to transfer resources. I believe a cool step into Astroneer would be technological advances that can be applied to the player's base and the player themselves to create well developed adventure. Thanks for reading my ideas, please provide more feedback as I can't wait to see this game advance. Thank you, Slay

    Drone and Robot Helpers

    I think it would cool to implement a drone center as an avaliable upgrade for a station • Scout drones that could travel in a certain range from where they were deployed would be able to find resources and then drop next to them and turn into a beacon for later recovery • Harvest drones that could say be either attached to your backpack or be able to deploy in an area that would gather all resources in that cluster and make a small pile of resource bundles • Hunter drones that can either be attached to backpack or deployed in an area that would seek out dangerous plants and destroy them and return upon completion of task •Companion buddy who would be there purely for esthetic purpose maybe a Lil robot dog or cat or some sort of random ball thing that cracks jokes periodically • Demolition drones that could be sent to a location and would explode in case you need to remove large amounts of ground in a small time for Terra forming purposes and harvesting • Backpack drones that could be clustered that would allow you store more items that would follow you for when you are harvesting in a cave or something • Terra forming drones that would flatten areas and make the ground smooth All these could be combined or make multi propose drones and if you want me to do some sketches of sed drones just let me know and I will make a thread with picture attachments of drone concept idea. 4 years worth of drawing FYI
