  2. So as I was wandering around in Astroneer, y'know as you do, I thought to myself, "Hey, what if I had to deal with problems on each planet?" The idea sprung on me while I was booting up a new game and rushing instantly to a Radiated planet. Environmental Hazards I know that we have sandstorms, or whatever it is you'd like to call them, but what if there were more hazards or detrimental weather? Perhaps they vary from planet to planet, for instance on the moon you'd have meteorites, on an exotic planet you'd have maybe a swarm of carnivorous space wasps or something of the sort. I'm starting off light because I'm unsure of the limitations of the engine. This could really be taken in any direction, maybe even player triggered hazards or preventable disasters like volcanoes or earthquakes, But I think the idea of biome specific hazards is good food for thought. Events When I think of events I mean like these satellites (Or space stations if you've read my other post over Here) crashing on a planet from outer space. Maybe large asteroids with rarer materials or such? Or a even rarer alien clump of debris from 'something' that has a unique research module. The idea of this would give each planet a lot more of an organic feeling with things that can just 'happen' from nothing. Maybe, and this ties in with Environmental Hazards, what about a world destruction event? Massive earthquakes or volcanoes destroying a planet, over time forming an asteroid belt? Of course this is just an idea, we could always just have a few small moon sized asteroids floating about in this belt we could visit. I just really like the idea of asteroid mining. Derelict Alien Structures I've been dwelling on this idea for some time if I'm honest, but I've thought about ancient alien ruins or destroyed technology from a long lost age. From something simple and small like an independent functional refinery or solar array or if you want real big stuck, destroyed planetary structures, I'm talking broken pieces of a Ringworld floating in orbit of a planet, or a half constructed Dyson sphere or something of the like. Interstellar Travel/Wormhole Travel Now this is just a wild idea that I spitballed with a little bit but what if you found one of these structures that provided co-ordinates to a 'Wormhole gate' or something of the like to provide travel to a fresh system, a 1 way trip to a fresh system. This could easily be tied-in with some ideas from Derelict alien structures. Think of it almost like a NG+ mode, you keep research, and whatever small supplies you take with you along with your ship. I can't think of any kind of incentive of going into this 'NG+' mode or somesuch, but feel free to throw together ideas for incentive to travel to another system aside from if you blew up one of the planets from drilling into the core or something, or the sun exploding. Who knows. As always fellow Astrodudes, feedback is appreciated! Edit: Spelling<
  3. I want to suggest you guys, to develop some alien creatures and guns to fight them, or make something more interesting that includes alien creatures. Because it's so lonely when you play by yourself, and no challenge that i get rather than sandstorm. Btw for all of you who get so winnie about sandstorm, you should go play some games that doesn't get in your nerves.
  4. It would be cool to have npc aliens in the game. They could have built their own little colonies and have their own abilities to do stuff. What if there were traces of them to so you go to a planet with no life on it, and when you get there you find pyramids or something, so you know life used to be there. Maybe you could trade with them too. Like a trade platform but right there. What if you could pay them to work for you too, that could be cool. Like you pay them some aluminum or something and they mine some compound for you.
  5. Hello fellow Astroneers! So I've been playing Astroneer non stop for the past week or so, and it got met totally hooked. I also watched the December 22nd livestream where the dev's discussed ideas and plans they have for the future of the game, among which alien life. That got me thinking. I remebered watching a documentary about alien life a long time ago, where cosmologists, physicists and biologists used known knowledge of life here on earth to speculate, and project how life might evolve on other planets. One scene that stuck with me in particular, was about the biggest possible creature to be found in the universe. It was basically an enormous bipedal giraffe which had mouths on its feet. It would walk across a literal ocean of amoebea, biting off huge chucks of the gunk, on a planet where pretty much all water had dried up, except for this gigantic ocean of micro organisms. I know, sounds awesome right? Well I think it would be awesome to populate the universe of Astroneer with similair aliens. Only instead of eating micro organisms, the massive aliens would absorb all kinds of recources that are already found on the planet such as compound, resin, oxigen, power etc. So basically grazing with their feet, by just walking across pockets of recources. Not only that, but they would then grow precious and rare recources on their massive bodies that can be extracted by the Astroneers. Basically they are giant walking pieces of planet. I think this could not only make the planets look and feel a lot more life like, but also introduce a new and fun way of gethering recources. Now ofcourse common recources would grow at the bottom where they can easily be extracted, but if you are looking for lets say precious metals such as gold and platinum, you have to find a way to climb all the way to the top of the lumbering giants. This could be done several ways. In the livestream I heard the dev's talking about jetpacks. But I think a fun way would be to have somekind attachment to for your terrain shaping device, a thether of somekind that you have to shoot upwards and hook onto the alien. Which you can then proceed to winch yourself up. Maybe a little minigame where you have to balance yourself as the alien tries to shake you off. Ofcourse I don't know if the developers like this idea, but regardless I was inspired enough to sketch a little rough drawing of what I think a creature like this could look like. However I think it would be cool to have several versions of these creatures depending on the enviroment. What I've drawn right here is basically a big 4 legged walker. But I also had they same idea for basically a big ball with tentacles sticking out on every side which, instead of walking, just rolled around very slowly absorbing all the recources it rolls over. Gameplay wise same principle though. They could also try to make these creatures procedurally generated to some degree, varying the shape of the head and the feet, and changing the colours. You can fill the rest in yourself. So what do you think? Yay or nay for my idea?
