  1. 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.
  2. in short. I noticed that when I found wreckage of habitats and damaged platforms they were marked as debris so I tried blowing them up with dynamite and found that I only got 1 piece of debris from the explosion, and that's if I was lucky. I think it would be a good idea to have items marked as debris and wrecked to break apart into several debris chunks when they are blown up by dynamite. This would allow players to actually shred the exploded pieces for scrap. The amount of pieces from an explosion can vary depending on the size of the item you are blowing up. If it's an abandoned habitat you could get a lot of debris chunks, whearas if it's just a platform then maybe you could only get 3 or something. Just a thought.
  3. And then I spent 10 minutes to get it out ASTRONEER (Game Preview) 09.09.2018 22_46_38 (2).mp4
  4. Some people might know that cave dynamite (dynamite found in caves not crafted) can be transported easily by sticking it to a research item. I know the devs might not have intended it to do that, but I think it should be kept in the game, albeit nerfed a lot. As of now you can stick it to all of the research items and stick as many on there as you want. However, it might be better if you could only stick it to one of the rarer types, so if you're the person who likes to keep dynamite around to blow stuff up, you can store a lot of it, but at the cost of potential bytes.
  5. Summary: - Steam - Dynamite merges with the launchpad Description: I wanted to delete the starting launch pad in which you receive your starting modules, but upon placing dynamite on it, it acted as part of the launchpad. Hovering my cursor over dynamite, and even dynamite connected to the connected dynamite gave me the option to examine only. Restarting the game causes them to act as normal.

    Dynamite sticks on my hitbox

    I play on Steam, mouse and keyboard, and I found this bug with dynamite, messed around a bit, and found that none of my other items can stick to me. I'm guessing it's because dynamite has the stickiness part about it, so if placed "on an object" (me) it wont fall off. This is totally cool for sticking on cave walls, but I'm guessing it's not supposed to stick to me. I stuck them to me by opening my inventory, then simply selecting the dynamite and clicking on my character. I noticed the dynamite only stuck when the compass showed up, so that's why I presume it will only stick on my hitbox. Also, the dynamite becomes seemingly attached to me, clipping through solid objects, like walls, and it cannot be detonated or removed. Only after the inventory is opened again will the dynamite become interactive once more. After discovering this, I saved, closed out of Astroneer and came back, and the bug persisted. This would be great if your inventory was full of dynamite and you're still mining in a cave. I still haven't researched dynamite, so this dynamite was all found either on dead astronauts in caves or laying on the ground in caves. (I also found that when they spawned on the ground in caves they seemed like they couldn't be picked up, perhaps deceiving the player into thinking that they can only be detonated, but after mining underneath them they can be picked up.)
  7. Heres another idea from me and a friend about a new device inspired by the recycler charge from Prey. It could replace the dynamite system because its pretty useless; I don't Know if anyone is using dynamite on astroneer but not for exploration and resource gathering i guess. So the concept is: -A little device craftable in the backpack , using one rare ressource (thought about Aluminium) or one extrarare ressource -Designed like a metalic little ball, the device can be placed on any structure like the dynamite and activated in the same way -When activated and after a short time, the device create a "air blast" (not an explosion like the dynamite) which is instantly remove all matter inside the radius of the device "blast". The new feature is that all resource in the "air blast" radius , like for example a compound deposit , would automatically be transformed into stacks of resources. -Be taken in the "air blast" radius would result in instant death. -Like the dynamite, the device is destroyed in the process. -The research cost for this device should be high, at least like the dynamite (ATM 3600 bites) , but it could also be more (between 5000-6000 bites) This device would be more efficient than dynamite, and more in the spirit of Astroneer, with no Weapons and Guns.
  8. Controller Xbox One I loaded my save after updating to 0.6.2 to try and see if I could blow up a large storage on my large shuttle due to it not being able to take off with a habitat. When placing dynamite I found myself unable to activate my dynamite neither on on the large shuttle nor the ground. It only brings out my terraform tool. I have tried reloading multiple times, while each time it produces the same effect.
  9. Hi, I bought this game recently but I've watched a lot of YouTube video about this game (My favorites are Z1 and Draegast) and it makes me really want to play this game. Then I bought it while it on sale. And the I also like the devs vlogs because I'm interested with game studios ,so watching your vlog is like a... you know... Make me even more interested into game development. So just straight to my idea. First I have to say that Dynamite/TNT and space junk is a relatively common things in game, especially now we can found space junk with TNT attached to it! Then I thought of something what if it could be a little bit valuable thing not just a trash... And my idea is to add a new resource lets call it "Scrap". What is "Scrap"?? Well basically it's a thing that we can get by blowing up Crashes with TNT. Because it's make sense right?? Blowing metal then you got scrap not just disappear. And from the "Scrap" you can maybe convert or smelt or craft that to something else. Ex. Aluminium, Copper, Titanium, or maybe a new metal resource like "Iron" that you can only get by blowing junk. I'd like to make some illustration but I'm to busy with my job and I cant even make this thread look more nice cause I don't have time to make this thread I think just it for this idea if anybody can improve my idea I would appreciate it so much. Thank you guys so much for reading this messy and bad english thread to the and. Its my first thread soo... Yeah, hope you like my idea... Have a nice day!!
  10. So I was taking some dynamite into my base. I accidentally blew it up. It created a large hole in my base that could easily be fixed. The issue was that it got rid of the connectors in my base that let power flow. Now my much progressed game is ruined. If there is some fix please help.
  11. Hey all! Not my usual thing but I thought of an idea for dynamite. How about having a shape charge more suited to the 1xaluminum it takes for dynamite. I crudely drew what the charge could be like hoping it's alright. The yellow part could go down, change color as it does. Have the ability to stick the charge on terrain.
  12. Hi, I'm Adam and I'm new here. I have a few simple ideas which in my opinion will make Astroneer more enjoyable. My first Idea is about dynamite. To detonate one dynamite is quite simple. You press "detonate" icon and run. The countdown is long enough so you can blow up things without blowing up yourself. [image 1] But when you want to make a bigger explosion... you will propably die. [image 2] My solution is to make a cord with which you could detonate dynamite from safe distance. Similary to tethers, our astronaut will be making a path with them and once one end is conected to the dynamite, the other end will show the "detonate" icon. [image 3] They could be made from copper and one pack could contain six pieces. This could make using dynamite more practical and also less destructive to the areas whitch you don't really want to blow up (now to achieve a similar effect you have to make a chain of small explosions that lead to the bigger one). Let me know what you guys think.
  13. Hello, Today I and a friend were playing together (Both on mouse and keyboard, on the Steam version) and I went in a cave, and tried the dynamite for the first time. I tried it on aluminum ores, thinking it would give me the ores. It exploded, didn't give me the ores, and particles of the minerals flew around, floating and not falling on the ground. I waited a bit, thinking it would disappear, but after something like 5 minutes, it didn't disappear, and stayed in the cave, gently floating, or staying still in the airs. I took this screenshot of it to show it to my friend. Hope it will help you solve a possible bug!
  14. Summary : 2051816 - Steam - Bug with dynamite Description : When you dead with dynamite's explosion, all dynamites in your bag is delete when you respawn.

  15. So I found a dynamite next to two exploders, and decided to blow them up. I did so, and the exploders... didn't explode. The research under them was right there, but the exploders were floating in midair without exploding!
  16. This is an odd one. So I had one of those partial resources from an old save, specifically a partial lithium block stuck on a storage which caused annoyance. I decided to attempt to destroy the medium storage with some dynamite. Stuck it on the side of the storage and detonated, which destroyed the storage without problem as well as the partial block with it. My base was well outside of the radius of the explosion. Yet within a few minutes I realized a couple other storages I had attached to base platforms had disappeared. Few minutes later I found them. Floating in the sky just out of reach on the opposite side of where the dynamite explosion was probably about as far from the explosion crater, as they had been at the base. Have picture documentation, lol. Worth a laugh. Tried to be as descriptive as possible to allow sourcing of the actual glitch. Could have been related to the partial block, though it seems unlikely. Further experimentation necessary.

    Dynamite Bug

    Hi. First of all. Just installed back since format and busy a bit. New update was good. Good job keep it up! <3 Was eager to try out the dynamite and this happen. Probably cause i put it on top of the Supply drop pod? Platform : Steam How to Reproduce bug: 1. Take a dynamite 2. Put it on top of the Supply pod or (insert any name here) 3. There you go
  18. The resin modules that are between other modules will not delete using dynamite. Example: [habitat---blank resin module--- vehicle bay] when laid out in a manner similar to this, you are able to delete the vehicle bay using dynamite, but when trying to delete the blank resin module you are not able to. It will blow up everything around it with the module in perfect shape still. It also is a living nightmare to try to get the module to blow up when placing the dynamite. You literally have to spend 15-30 min trying to do it because when your cursor is over the blow up button the module tries to extend no matter where you place the dynamite on the module. Trust me I've tried everything so don't try to tell me to do this or that. It needs a fix. 100% positive about this. Was going to try to use the crane to drill through it but oh wait that's bugged out too but I know that has been already said. Frustrating.
  19. New here, love the game. Not sure if a bug or it is not a current feature. Trying to reorganize things and couldn't restart the building layout after demolition.
  20. Good morning.I have created a character and have played 100 hours so far, but dynamite research is not working. All the research items except dynamite have been researched, but until now 150 research materials have been researched, dynamite still not coming is this bug?
  21. Hi, tried some play with my old main save on the new patch .125. Functions really well. All new looking stations updated. Base was strangly re-forested, all items present as well as two racks with dynamite in new version. New space wrecks have appeared together with at least 7 new research objects. However researching the new objects and also old ones gave only material not the new blueprint for dynamite. Anyone researched dynamite on an old save? Or do you have to start a new game.

    Destroying Vehicles

    I am playing Astroneer via Steam and need to know if you can destroy a vehicle with dynamite or through other means. And if so, how? What is the process?
  23. Controller : Mouse/keyboard Platform : Steam How it happened : I setted a dynamite over some resources, I quitted then got back to the game and the hole made by the blast was still there and random resources (different to the previous ones) spawned over the void. How to reproduce : Go to a first layer of caves, set a dynamite, blast it, close the game and get back in less than 1 min.
  24. So I made a rookie mistake and only made 5 modules with no room to expand and create a new module. So I decided to use some dynamite to destroy one. But now it won't let me add a new node to the base. So...I decided to try it on another module. Same thing. And now I can't even build a habitat to build a new base. I also tried to attach dynamite to the connector from the base, but it bugged out and wouldn't let me detonate, so I put another one beside it and detonated it, but they remained. I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong.
