  1. I've been trading for ammonium like an idiot, when I could've just taken a rover with a drill and storage into a forest. Now I'm never running outta fuel; I should get some silos.
  2. I am already towards the end of the game, and I still only use solid fuel thrusters over hydrazine thrusters because ammonium is hard to find and make with the soil centrifuge. I would probably start using hydrazine thrusters to if Ammonium was either easier to find or hydrazine costs one ammonium. Tell me what you think!
  3. I play Astroneer on PC. This bug occurred with 1.0.7. I attached plastic and ammonium and a third item to a broken platform with working sockets. I was able to use the platform to store items while I printed tools. After a while I was no longer able to select the items and remove them from the platform. I can move the platform and highlight the items, but can't interact with them. The problem continues with 1.0.9. This is on Calidor. The only action I was taking around the time was flattening the surface in the area I had set up. The platform is movable even after this was done.
  4. I know that ammonium can be obtained from the soil centrifuge. However, since 1.0, I have yet to find a single instance of ammonium in the ground. I have full bases on Sylva, Desolo, Vesania and Novus. I have just started a base on Glacio. I have explored extensively underground in those first four planets. On Sylva and Desolo I have also explored the surface extensively as well. (Think, 2-3 beacons in 3-4 directions from the the base.) So, I am wondering: Am I looking in the wrong places? Am I the victim of a horrible seed? Is ammonium just so rare that the soil centrifuge is the only realistic option unless you get lucky? Has anyone actually mined ammonium since 1.0 and if so, where?
  5. So I am finding myself spending a lot of time hunting for ammonium. I think ammonium is now the most valuable resource in the game. Hopefully the next patch will make acquiring ammonium/hydrazine easier. I just spent an hour scouring caves for ammonium. I struck out and logged off. Ammonium has defeated me again.
  6. Since the crafting patch came out, producing enough hydrazine to fill the fuel tank of a medium or large ship takes an insane amount of time and running around to find enough ammonium. What am I doing wrong? This can't be the way System Era intended it. Or could it... :-0
  7. I noticed that hydrazine (and ammonium in general) is extremely important to travel on another planet, and yet it is hard to find, and even worse you can't extract them from a "mineral extractor". So even if you find it, you are going to slowly run out, especially if you use more than one spaceship. So I have some suggestion: make ammonium craftable. Of course for balance reasons, it should be hard to do it. However it should use items that the mineral extractor can extract, the ideal would be: Getting stuff from a mineral extractor (let's say compound) Getting gas from an atmospheric condenser (Nitrogen of course) "cooking" them in the chemistry lab """""mass""""" produced ammonium So that is possible to "never run out" of hydrazine, but it is time and energy consuming. Right now, I'm mass producing large wind turbine using resources from the mineral extractor, and shredding them in exchange for ammonium. I know that I could just explore more, but I find exploration for the sake of resources farming very annoying. What do you think?
  8. Ever since the new Buasbuilding Update dropped I have noticed that Ammonium deposits on the surface of Terrain seem to be more common. Before the update, I could go entire games without seeing a single surface deposit, but now I tend to see at least two or three. Anyone else experiencing this change? Also, underground deposits of both Malachite and Latarite now seem to be more rarer, at least in the initial sections of caves. It could just be the games I've had since the update but I wanted to make sure, so I wanted to ask if this is true for other players as well. If it is true, I'd like to know if this was intentional in order to adjust the difficulty or if it is an unintended result of something else. Would be interested in anyone's responses on this subject.
  9. I was messing around in the new patch 196 and found an item in the trading platform. It's worth the same as malachite and laterite, but seems to have no real use. When hovering over it a tooltip labels it as "Hydrazine Reactant" and it has the same purple cone icon as hydrazine. It can't be smelted, used to fuel a ship, or amplify a dynamite explosion, so I'm guessing it's just another unused element like Hematite and Astronium, which conveniently are both in the picture on the right storage rack.
  10. item bug: going into the map: Ammonium issue : Guess the true Ammonium: now does anyone know what it is used for or just other resource that cant be used yet
