I know that this has already been thought of. The purpose of this thread is to expand on the idea. When you launch, there should be several asteroids orbiting the central star that you can travel to in the same way you do planets. They are positioned in a way similar to this: Central Star Radiated 2-3 Asteroids Arid 1 Asteroid Exotic 3-5 Asteroids Terran-Barren System 2 Asteroids Tundra 3 Asteroids (accessible only from Tundra) They have treacherous terrain but double the output of solar panels and do not spin wind turbines (for they lack an atmosphere) and contain large amounts of Iron deposits (not Hematite), Copper deposits (not Malachite), Aluminum deposits (not Laterite), Lithium deposits, and Titanium deposits (not Titanite). Though, they do not contain any Quartz deposits, Clay deposits, Compound deposits (which should be renamed to Silicon), or Resin deposits. On them, the Atmospheric Condenser only gives 5 PPU of Hydrogen. Please let me know what you think. 😃
ImperiaL posted a topic in Suggestions and IdeasHello! I have some small ideas for the game that are really cool. 1. Wind Turbines should be at full capacity during a storm. Seems illogical to me to not have any wind during a storm.. right? 2. Interstellar travel. travel to other stars, discover new types of planets and you will be able to choose your star with.. 3. The Observatory you could build an observatory to observe other solar systems, and gain knowledge about them so how do we use the knowledge about other solar systems??.. 4. The Spaceship (idk find a cool name) When building it, it will be placed in orbit of your current planet, and when you wish to go to another solar system, go on to the spaceship and choose your observed solar system. (much like the shuttle but with the observatory) you can always go back if you wish. 5. Add Types of Sun Add red giants, add white dwarfs, add all the stars you could ever know. 6. Add Space Stations It will be nice to add space stations and observe other planets of the current solar system. and find out diffirent things about that planet! (Hostility, Storms , Minerals , and other stuff such as....) 7. Soil Density this will get annoying on some planets, the soil could be denser, harder to mine, you get more soil, but you mine slower. 8. Space Elevator it could be cool to build a space elevator to space stations. and could be a must for the spaceship. 9. Asteroid Belts and Comets. There should be asteroid belts with asteroids (duuh) with different minerals, colors, and density. Comets could be rare, temporary , with juicy, rare minerals. 10. Add Large Solars and Winds
I think that this game would really benefit with these new features. The game just gets really old after a while, you,re just doing the same thing over and over again. Mining for resources and conquering new planets. Could you guys please consider adding in new moons on other planets. Also I think it would be very awesome if comets and asteroids would be added into the game. And the ability to land on these comets and asteroids and mine their resources. The new types of moons would add a few more places to discover and more places to install bases. I really hope you guys add at least one of these new features to Astroneer.
I know that the developers are thinking about adding asteroids, so I have some suggestions. While the solar system is very large, materials are still limited. I recommend, rather than permanent orbiting asteroids, having visiting asteroids that stop by the system and stay for a certain amount of time. They could disappear after they have not been visited for a while. Building a base on them could make them permanent. This would allow for infinite resources in the solar system that aren't exploitable and still require work to get. Asteroids could have eccentric orbits so that they cross the paths of other planets and maybe crash and deposit materials onto the surface or make craters. This could also provide another hazard to your base. They could leave your starting base alone so that you don't lose any chance of respawning, but new bases at different locations could require force fields to protect themselves. Force fields could also protect from storms. They would need a small amount of energy to operate and could be turned off when not in use. Asteroids should be small but not too small. You shouldn't be able to jump out of their gravity. Resources could be densely packed at the center of the asteroid so that it's not free stuff at the top and you really have to get in there to extract anything useful. Some materials could also be scattered at the surface, but sparsely. Any other suggestions, please add in the comments! I would like to hear what other people think about this.
