  1. I had a really cool idea that I think would make for a great addition to the game. An elevator to lift your Astroneer in and out of the caves. Say that you dug a really deep hole to the center of the planet and you need to bring some resources back up and you don't have a path or vehicle, you can place an elevator at your base and dig a hole straight down and it could lift you or some cargo up or down. This would make building an underground base or just exploration very easy. The elevator could be controlled by your character to stop and start whenever, or you could put some materials in it a
  2. Hi, first time posting here but have played for over a year. Enjoying 8.0. These are not new ideas; rather ideas rehashed with some twists. COMPONENTS - I like the idea that there should components, but for T3 (tier 3) and even some T2 items. They could have names or for Alpha/simplicity-sake, Component A-F, etc. Moreover, have them need to be crafted at a craft-able workbench... My idea for the workbench is that it resembles half of the medium rover storage plus a habitat-type enclosure. The storage half would allow medium (8-slot) storages to be attached whereby allo
  3. A while ago, another person suggested adding a zip-line to improve mobility on hills. It fits in with some other parts of the game such as tethers and sliding down hillsides and could be a help with caverns and mountains, so I agree that it would be a good add, but I think going further and making a whole set of tools using overhead cables would be even better. For starters, cables themselves - a set of poles built in a batch like tethers or extenders that can attach to a surface and be linked together over a distance. Maybe built using resin or aluminium, to differentiate from tethers a
  4. I've recently been playing with my buddy on Xbox One and we decided to make a ramp going straight up all the way into space (yeah I know). We ended up completing it and there wasn't a whole lot up there. We reached what seemed to be an invisible barrier or something that prevented us from terraforming any higher so we decided to make a huge platform to hang out, but we later discovered we can go even higher if we curved our ramp and went a new direction; it all somehow still felt very limiting because that's all that we we're able to do. On one of the bullet points on the "PSA (Read this First
  5. I Have seen a LOT of complaints about material transportation, mining, and vertical shafts I would like to suggest an idea of an elevator module/vehicle that you could place somewhere and have it extend down a player-made vertical shaft. It would have an item storage on the sides, and a place for vehicles/players on the inside, like a moving platform. In addition, it could be like the 3-D elevator (Capable of Moving on 3 axis) like in many movies, such as Harry Potter when the characters are in the Ministry of Magic At very least, there needs to be a ladder, staircase, or a
  6. Here's an idea for a structure; the "Grav-Shute." It's a simple structure that when powered would nullify (or greatly reduce) gravity in an area around it, or within a tube-like structure. This would allow us to create elevators that we can traverse by just hopping in to them! It could also have a fan or a toggle-able up/down repulsor field to help with traversal, or elevators could be built with permanent directions for simplicity's sake. Astroneer's engine already seems to support variable gravity within a single planet, so it seems like this might be possible as an actual thing?
  7. Hi there. The slide mechanic is lending itself to a lot of fun. The pain of building ramps is hard enough that a way of getting up fast ensures the slide is going to be fun; instead of a chore if you build it too high and you need to climb up all the time. The same is true for digging down and mining, only the other way around. The game will flow a lot better when you're not walking up slopes for minutes on end. A system of (mono) rails, or some other form of track travel might be the most fun to alleviate the problem of running up slopes. And it can be combined with a million other
