About Me

  1. Me and my friend were about to scrap a medium resorce canister in a n XL-scraper. As soon as i put it in the Scrapper started to spew out thousands of tinny items. (they look to me like small holding slots) It crashed both our games a few seconds after it started but luckly we could still access the world (we have since burried them deep underground and that explains the hole in the screenshop) We have scrapped many resorce canisters before in the scrapper so we think it had something to do with the canister still had one piece of heminite still in it I'm reporting this bc
  2. If you place a Small Battery into a Large Shredder, you can immediately take out the Small Battery. The Shredder will continue to shred an invisible object, and continue generating scrap metal. Holding onto the Small Battery until it has become as small as possible will net 2 Scrap. If the Small Battery is not held onto until it has popped back into normal size, it will vanish. Though I currently do not have a video, I recommend attempting it in-game. It was very consistent for me regardless of any alterations whatsoever.
  3. Hello, I found this accidentally. I am not sure if this should be reported publically - the issue is present in the latest Astroneer version (Steam) on Windows 10. Summary: Exploit for getting unlimited scrap from shredder Description: By doing certain steps you can get virtually unlimited scrap from the big shredder (did not text on the small one). Platform: Steam /Windows 10 Version / Build Number: 1.0.7 Specifications: Don't matter See attached screenshot - it took me less than 4 minutes of shredding to make that pile.
  4. When i was scrapping my battery i tried taking it back out and it worked... so i waited and when it finished i got the battery back and i could place it back down so i just got scrap without losing it
  5. Platform PC (haven't tried but I'm 99% sure it works on console too), Controller/Mouse/Keyboard. Description Now, I found this glitch on Steam while playing with a controller but it also works on mouse/keyboard and for that I'm guessing that it works on console too (but not sure). Anyway, the glitch works when you have a car seat and when you are about to hop in to the car seat then if you time it just right and you click on the car seat just before your character is about to hop in the seat you will select the seat but you are inside the seat giving you the ability
  6. Summary: - Steam - Flying seats exploit Description: Now, I found this glitch on Steam while playing with a controller but it also works on mouse/keyboard and for that I'm guessing that it works on console too (but not sure). Anyway, the glitch works when you have a car seat and when you are about to hop in to the car seat then if you time it just right and you click on the car seat just before your character is about to hop in the seat you will select the seat but you are inside the seat giving you the ability to fly around in the car seat. (Also when you are doing t
  7. Summary: Getting into an Open 1-Seat (possibly other seats as well) and clicking at the right time allows you to fly around simply by pointing the mouse. Description: Pressing and holding 'E' on an Open 1-seat and immediately clicking on the seat (to pick it up if timed correctly) allows the user to fly anywhere they please without the need of a vehicle or oxygen; this can sometimes result in flying 'inside' the planet as well. This bug can be used in single player, but is insanely easier to achieve in multiplayer due to the brief lag when the host automatically saves when any player jump
  8. Thought I would do some research into power loops and the rumors and misinformation surrounding them. And try to find out what was breaking them. So for those not aware, there is a current bug with splitters which allows them to act as infinite power sources. Drop a splitter on or near a platform (I use medium-b but any work). Connect a cable TO the splitter FROM the platform. Then connect a cable TO the platform FROM the splitter. This forms the "loop". Power out of the splitter into the platform, and back into the splitter. Then you feed any source of power into the 3rd input of
  9. I'm certain this must be an oversight, bug or some kind of exploit. Basically my friend and I carried a large platform with us deep into the caves, load it up with minerals and head back with pretty much zero risk. When our oxygen is low we just drop the platform, refill, pick it up and carry on. As handy as this is it makes the risk of caves and the like pretty trivial. It used to be fun trying to get vehicles down there (which was challenging and the oxygen was a nice payoff), but the platform tables are just too easily carted about. Probably this isn't intentional!
  10. Having Problems Finding resources? here's an exploit for you. quite a simple set up if you have the trading platform and fuel condenser researched, this simple set up will let you build bases for days. fuel is a 1 to 1 trade for common resources, 2 to 1 for uncommon and 8 to 1 for rare. but using this simple set up and you can make multiples resource issues will never be a problem again. fuel only takes energy so really the only thing your giving up is time to recharge the stations. but simple solution for less time involved make more fuel condensers and make all your wildest dreams come
  11. Hey, i don't know if this has been reported yet. It is pretty easy to extend your grabrange with the deformation tool. I think somehow the game takes the working range of the deformation tool, so you can pick up things that are pretty far away with your deformation tool out. Keep up the good work guys! Greetings
  12. I found this strange texture missing area around my map. Feel free to take a look. The world spawned with already there are can kind of be fixed with deform tool but still noticeable... Anyways I attached a youtube video explaining this bug. PC- Steam version Thank you! YouTube-
  13. Description: If you try to pick up something and sit in a seat, they can both happen. This allows various exploits (features?), such as carrying an extra pod while driving. The funnest one is to pick up the seat and tab to sit in it at the same time. This allows you to fly around at tremendous speed by just moving the cursor around. This seems more reproducible in open areas and large caverns, and less so in tunnels, so it may be performance related. Platform: Steam / Windows 7 Version / Build Number: 119 Specifications: OS: Windows 7 Pro x64 | v. 1607 | Build 143
  14. I was playing, and trying to get the unknown items out of a cave on my world. I died from poison gas, but I was holding a unknown item when I died. When I spawned at my Habitat, I still has the item in my hand.
  15. I am a Pc player on steam. Mouse and Keyboard. I was playing a solo game when I realised that if you are in a tunnel or a cave, you can use the digging tool to make yourself go on the other side of the cave wall or the tunnel. You can freely travel between the cave to get material or whatever you want and then come back to where you were before. Which, gives you access to practically everywhere and everything without any effort. In other words, if you manage to make your character pass on the other side of the wall by using the digging tool you can go wherever you want and comeback as y
  16. STEP 1: build a seat. STEP 2: put the seat on the ground STEP 3: hit tab while grabbing the seat at just the right moment. boom. airplane/spaceship. you can now go anywhere, including above the height limit.
  17. I have noticed that if you have your terrain tool out, the range at which you can grab objects is increased. have fun
  18. If you die while holding a research object, you bring it back to your base when you respawn. I have been using this bug to move research items to the surface quickly. I think this might apply to any object that you are holding at death.
  19. since you get oxygen from rovers I figured that I might place some tethers from it but when I drive the rover away the tethers are still giving me oxygen from nothing.
  20. Scenario: Create a Truck base on a Vehicle Bay Select a (large) Vechile Storage unit from the Vehicle Bay for on-vehicle fabrication Start the fabrication and immediately drag another (any) item on the Truck base where the fabrication is taking place Result: The Storage unit is fabricated briefly in-place but quickly pops off the Truck base Because the Vehicle Storage unit is not designed to picked up it cannot be reattached to a vehicle Side effect/exploit (minor): A Vehicle Storage unit can be made a standalone 'rack' hold other items, kinda useful
  21. Dear System Era, Me and my friend wanted to share this bug with you because we think it will help with further development. How we got this bug to work? Step 1. You MUSTN'T be the host of the server. Step 2. Make a slide, on any planet (except Terran). Step 3. Save and reload the map. Step 4. Enter the server. Step 5. Go to the slide(it will be blocked off for the guest), and mine a little bit for a part of it to load. Step 6. Do what is shown in the video.
  22. I've been stuck in my life pod for 10 hours. The world wont load around me. It doesn't give me the "X" prompt to get out of said pod. And nothing I do, not even with the help of a player, can get me unstuck.............. I need a game dev or somebody to get my character unstuck before I delete my game in pure frustration..
  23. Hello again, this is my second report on some bugs and exploits i have found that should be patched!!! First off lets start with one i found a little bit ago that can be considered an exploit and should be patched. So in this one its quite simple but at the cost of dragging a single seat around with you. So what happens is, when you die of something you are still able to sit int he chair. Because of this, when you respawn it will bring you back into the chair as you were while you were dead and spawns you in the chair exactly were you left it. You can probably see how bad thi
  24. I play on Steam with a Mouse and Keyboard. Having a partially empty Hydrazine hooked up to the Fuel Condenser is the only way I know how to reproduce this exploit. Starting the Fuel Condenser with a partially filled bottle and removing it when filled as the second bottle fills the machine will complete before it has filled but then automatically fills the bottle the rest of the way anyways. I would have attached video but the way I recorded me and my friends session last night did not seem to record the game at all it just recorded the steam page. Good Luck.
  25. When the fuel condenser is started, you can grab the partially filled canister from the fuel condenser and drop it on the ground. this can be done about 10-12 times in one fill of a canister. This wouldnt really be a problem if the trade platform didnt recognize a partial canister as a full canister.
