OS: win 10 pro x64 GPU: sapphire rx590 nitro+ CPU: xeon e5-2665 Playing astroneer 220.127.116.11(steam) i found, that when you take your Deform tool you can interact with object in much further distance. astroneer-2019-10-30-19-34-09-lpzuqekhmp4_09pi.mp4
While it's a huge benefit to a solo player to learn this trick, it seems unintended. Quite simply, if you're trying to pick up an unknown research object that's out of range, then equip the deform tool, your "grab" range is extended to that of the deform tool. This effect only exists when the deform tool is equipped.
I just started playing this game a couple days ago. I haven't encountered any noticeable glitches so far except for one. It has happened to me three times so far: my deform gun will get stuck in a sort of automatic mode, where it will immediately start digging at whatever the cursor is touching, regardless of whether I am holding the mouse button. So far, every time it has occurred, it's been when I was doing a lot of adding or flattening. The bug persists when I press "E" to unequip and reequip the deform gun, but it will go back to normal after I open up my backpack. This is on the Steam version. Have other people encountered this? Thank you.
When I try to use the deform tool to flatten/smooth the terrain in a Radiated planet, the tool only works in a straight line, when I try to move to another point to keep smoothing around it returns to the previous point I was smoothing/flattening covering only that spot, when I try to build a ramp from one level cave to another the same problem I just get a horizontal line instead of a vertical line. Any ideas what is wrong?
