  1. I play astroneer in the xbox x with a xbox controller. I was trying to explode some of glacio wildlife (the one that throws bombs) that appears in groups of three, using some dynamite. Sadly, the dynamite explosion only affects the terrain, not damaging the wild life, and even so, the lifeforms dont explode when their terrain attachment is "excavated" by dynamite explosion. This is a bug/improvement that would increase game fun in single and multiplayer experience.
  2. I have played Astroneer quite a bit for now and while it is great fun to play i noticed that there are several factors that make long term playing feel rather grindy and repetative. I could go the easy way and say it's just the lack of content to spend that much time on the game but i realized that there is actually enough stuff in the game already but it simply is balaced badly - as a consequence a lot of items become obsolete. Mining: The crane: a great feature but ultimately makes no sense to ever build. it gives no advantage to drilling speed of hard rocks over the terrain tool - since it now has drill mods and can use a boost mod on top of that. it also has less range and is immobile while the player can change position easily with the terrain tool. given all the mods that the terrain tool can use and therefore how overpowered it has become difficult to bring the crane back to the game. i wished the devs would make a hard-mode where it's significantly nerfed just so a buffed crane (increased range, allow to use mods) would be the ultimate late game terraforming tool. however the crate would need one important new feature: it should additionally work like a vehicle cockpit so one can drill and drive at the same time. Another cool potential feature could be to give the crane a new attachment to use it as a manlift! when Astroneer was released i was really happy when i realized they introduced different terrain resistances/hardness. but in reality i could research the drill mods relatively quickly and then this new mechanic became completely irrelevant - especially because by the time i had to dig through hard rocks i already was equipped for it. i have to admit for a non-creative playthrough i really dislike the drill mods for the terrain tool and i do not see much ways to fix it. Well, perhaps the least they could do is to massively increase their research costs, especially for the higher tiers. maybe even make the research entirely hidden at the start of the game and make it only researchable trough finding it in a EXO research aids in the right biomes. perhaps another fix could to add a drawback by making it to require some fuel to drill through hard rocks - considering its not even really drilling but remotely sucking up the terrain (i.e. one could argue it needs to be soften up the rocks with something first). and there is also dynamite. it exists but has no reason to - from a gameplay perspective. for one, it cannot be used for mining (it just destroys resources) - and even if it didn't it would be again far inferior to the terrain tool. that's a pity because it would be fun if the game made it such that this would be the preferred way to mine some resources to add more variety to resource acquisition. Then however it would need to be made easier available as the resources required (sulfur) to craft explosives are too difficult to really bother.
  3. Ok so, a while ago I posted a thread about not being able to shred platforms and FlyingCrowbar came to the conclusion that only partially or fully damaged platforms can be shredded. I have a bunch of platforms I don't need or want right now so this is my solution: Instead of making all platforms shreddable(but that is welcome too), maybe we could blow up platforms with dynamite to damage them and that would automatically allow us to shred them
  4. Decided to finally unlock and farm a bunch of dynamite as it was pretty chill and it let me talk to chat. Few hours later I ended up with a fully stacked rover, which we then unleashed on a mountain lul
  5. Hello I'm making this post because I just destroyed the shell of a pit worm but it just keep floating in the air, according to the gamepedia you can not do this but I used dynamite and this happened, so please me them killable by destroying the soil underneath even tho you need to use dynamite in order to do so.
  6. Hi there. I played around with the new planet a bit, and I really tried to blow it up. (There you see SES, you give us a whole planet to play with and creative mode, and what do we do? We dig to the center or try to blow it up.) I didnt dare place more than 9 racks with explosives becasue the terrain started to glitch on me. And the result was dissapointing although it was fun too. The hole is big- maybe this is the biggest explosion in Astroneer ever- but the hole is just big enough that you cant see over it without walking. But this concludes that it isnt possible to blow up even the smallest planets. I used Extra large platforms, that allowed me to stack 8x10 items. I choosed to stack them with 1 dynamite and 7 hydrazine per medium storage. Times 9 it totals on 721 explosive items- 90 dynamite and 630 hydrazine…+1 dynamite to set it off. It took me over 2 hours with the cheating module, so this will never happen in survival. The pc will die on you before getting even close to placing enough explosives. Im surprised that the pc had no lag at all _showing_ the explosion, it was BANG and that was it. In minecraft it gets super laggy when you try to blow up huge stacks of TNT or nukes. CONCLUSION: CAN WE EVER BLOW UP A PLANET IN ASTRONEER? WITH TODAYS TOOLS: SADLY NO.
