  1. Hello, When 'terraforming' a new base, I noticed that, regardless of how many canisters I have on my backpack/terrain tool, they all empty simultaneously, at the same rate they would if I had just 1 full canister. In effect, this bug leaves me with having the same 'volume' of soil in 9 canisters (see attached screenshot) as I would have with 1. I'm using keyboard and mouse on steam; I drove a large rover to a new location to build a base on a Gateway on Sylva. Upon filling a number of small canisters to allow me to flatten a large area for a new 'flat' base, I noticed the issue. I've tried many scenarios (different locations, different mods/no mods attached, printed a whole new set of small canisters, etc.) and nothing fixed this. In the attached screenshot, all of the canisters I'm wearing were full when I started to flatten off the lighter 'default' grey portion of my base. As you can see, they're all emptying at the same time, and VERY quickly. Please let me know if this is a confusing bug report, or you need further information. Kind Regards, Martin
  2. Can we get glue canisters to put in the terrain tool for things like salvaged solar arrays so they dont move after you place them where you wanted? some people say you need to save and reload the game to freeze the solar array but doing so never worked for me and using the standard soil to secure it can cause it to jitter even if the soil isnt physically touching the array. a specially designed soil variant designed as glue would be great for keeping objects static. I would suggest that the way this be crafted is in the chemistry station using a full canister of soil, and resin.
  3. Whilst loading up the game for the first time in a long while, I decided that it'd be best to play the tutorial and learn the new features. All seemed to be going well until I got to the canisters section where the game then decided to not register any of the items I printed. No matter if I had made one or 10 (yes, I printed that many) canisters, the tooltip for PRINT A CANISTER FROM YOUR BACKPACK persisted, thus locking out some of the other tips from being completed. I decided to just start up a new game and skip the tutorial, but I wish I could complete the learning process before diving headlong into a fresh game. Has anyone else encountered this?
  4. Summary: 0.6.8 - Steam - Vehicle Entry Bug. Description: I have been playing Astroneer for a while and Played all the way to the end of a game in 0.6.5 (updated to 0.6.8) I noticed that there is a bug with the entry of vehicles. But I only seem to get it when holding certain items in my backpack. The most common item that has caused problems with vehicle entry and building entry is the Canister. Once I hold 1 or more in my backpack the mining tool opens instead of the interaction with buildings to enter. Platform: Steam Version / Build Number: 0.6.8 Specifications: OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 V. 1709 Build 16299.309 CPU: Intell Core i5-3570K @3.4Ghz GPU: GTX 1050Ti 4Gb RAM: 16Gb (2x8GB DDR3 2400hz) Drive: 2TB Western Digital 5400rpm
  5. Hi there, Fuel condenser used to start filling a new canister when the previous one had been filled up, i usually put medium storage units on the sides of the fuel condenser with empty canisters, the fuel condenser automatically picks one and starts when you give the order, then you have to manually remove the filled canister and it picks another to start filling, i remember it was an automatic process as long as there were empty canisters and energy available, you didnt have to remove the full canister manually. Edit: playing on steam version, win 10, CPU i5-3570k, 16GB Ram, GPU GTX 1060 6Gb
  6. I think there should be larger canisters thats pretty big and can only be attached to vehicles and takes a double slot like the medium storage. Then maybe to dump it into the mineral extractor you could connect a hose between it and the mineral extractor.Also it would be good if u could dump the smaller canisters of dirt into it by directly attaching them on to it. You could also fill a canister with dirt by connecting an empty canister to it.
  7. I have purchased Astroneer yesterday and have already spent 10 hours on it. I have a suggestion: a machine that can be researched that will automatically fill canisters with soil. I got this idea when I spent 2 hours filling canisters with soil so that I could use them in the Mineral Extractor and found that it is very so a grind. I fully understand this but, my idea is that this machine works slower than a player could fill canisters. Of course for that you don't need to go somewhere and dig for 2 hours, instead you work on your base or do other things and come back to filled canisters. Please let me know what you think, and ask any questions you have about my idea. Thank you!
