  1. Can the trade platform be used to obtain lithium, coal, or titanium? I filled it with 8 compound but the yield says 0. I can't seem to add any more compound. Do I use something else other than compound? Is there a wiki page I can refer to?
  2. Current problems this suggestion looks to solve: Mineral extractor is too much of a one-stop-shop for resources in the late game Mineral extractor renders the trade platform largely useless once the player has a sample of all mineral types Mineral extraction needs to remain available to make up for lack of common resources such as compound and resin in the early game Mineral extractor requires players to maintain samples of all mineral types - a space-wasting and error-prone process, as well as an artificial limitation that varies based on RNG findings Coal and l
  3. I've been playing Astroneer now since build 119, and in all that time I have only ever used the Medium Generator once, and that was just so I could claim to have used it. My problem with the MG is that by the time I've unlocked it and found coal to power it, I have already got an established means of power generation in the form of Medium Solar Panels and Medium Wind Turbines. I can see that it would be useful for underground bases where there is no sunlight, but even down there you still get wind, which is what I tend to use (unless I go so far as to run a line of platforms up to the surface
  4. So, over my hours playing this game, I've come to believe that the coal generator is by and large useless. Coal is as valuable as lithium and titanium, which are both much more useful, so I almost never would choose to funnel my resources into collecting coal. The coal generator requires 2 copper to build instead of just 1 copper for the organic generator, which makes it less likely for me to want to build. The coal generator may generate more energy, but this doesn't matter. When coal is as scarce as it is, and costs so much to produce, why build a coal generator at all when I can find grass
  5. Is it really rare, or have I just been unlucky? I haven't found one piece yet.
  6. I was wondering if there was a way to make generators not use the resources attached to them, when they are are not powering a battery/building/vehicle? I attach organics to a generator and even if no energy is being used it still destroys all of the organics on it.
  7. A machine that can convert organic into coal for generators, a ratio of 2 organic for 1 coal.
  8. Has anyone found out what the exotic materials are for, I just drilled a really deep distance down and found this, it was mostly attached to a rock that i cant do anything with. I was able to get 2 stacks tho.
