    Terra tool mods

    My first mod I can think of is the energy transfusion mod. Collecting soil with the Terra tool will produce energy instead of Soil in canisters. My second one I can think of is a Charged energy bolt mod. Yeah I know there are no guns but the Terra tool is practically already a Canon. So instead let it shoot energy balls from canister soil. It only stuns other players doesn't kill them. A way to get bad players to stop messing with other players. Or hurt it either or. Micro field generation mod. Micro fields are compressed wavelengths created near the edge of a Event Horizon. However micro Fields can evaporate. So basically players can make solid invisible walls that eventually disappear. Using energy or soil. Can help make floating islands. Waves cannot build in suspended space they can only be built off of solid matter. Microtesla receiver. This mod allows you to collect remote energy from Tesla coils from a previous. Suggestion earlier.
  2. Fauna is the existance of life other than our own, life of bystanding creatures that cooperate with the world and it's environment, they could have homes, procreation, age, death, decomposition. Livestock is Fauna being harnessed and claimed for their resources they can produce. Ranches, Farms, proccessing plants would be places considered for Livestock activities. It would be the players job to sustain livestock using _Bio-Tags_. Fauna Types: Beetle-Beast: medium large scaled ground fauna that roams in herds from 3 to 7 individuals. They feed on organic and proccess it into _bio dye_ including _fertilizer_ for waste. Alternate versions of Beetle Beasts can be found on each planet. Marsh-Moth: medium small scaled air fauna that flutters in groups of 3 to 6 individuals in dense forests and rarely in caves. They are attracted to active light sources(not the sun). They feed on _organic_ and _nectar_ and proccess it into _Silk_ and including _ fertilizer_ for waste. Alternate Marsh-Moths can be found on each planet. Hunter-Ant: Medium scaled ground fauna that marches in groups of 3 to 4 individuals in valleys. Omnivorous. Hunter ants are hostile and attack if in range. _Stun Bombs_are advised. Alternate versions can be found on each planet. Worker-Ant: Medium small scaled ground fauna that marches in groups of 4 to 8 individuals. Vegetarian. Worker-ants collect resources and stashes them at the nest to attempt to feed the queen. Queen-Ant: XL Scaled stationary fauna that feeds off resources that the hunter and worker ants bring in. There is 2 queens on every planet, queen ant is hostile and attacks if players are close, defense weaponry is advised. ______________(Tools)__________________ Bio-tags: Cost: 1 Plastic Printed in bundles of 9. In order to place a tag on a fauna, they must first be stunned. The Bio-tags are used to add fauna to a player's livestock collection. The tag allows the player to track and monitor the livestock. Also including behavior conditioning to prevent any attacks. Stun-Bombs: Cost: 1 carbon Printed in bundles of 7. The base of the bundle will include a launcher crosshair, the player can position it on an action slot to launch a bomb forward, stuns a player or a fauna in blast radius for 10 seconds. It is able to stun the player who launched it (practice is advised). Bug bomb: Cost: 1 acid gas

    Wide mod addon

    I beleive if you attach the wide mod and make flat terrain is should make the height of the radious bigger instead of having a small gap that you have to expand in order to get through

    Companion Bots

    There would be 2 kinds of companion bots; Dog bot(ground roamer), Dragonfly bot(air roamer). Dog Bot: is ground based, it has 1 tier 2 slot and 2 tier 1 slots when it is deployed. The Dog Bot will have 3 compatable mods available: Retriever mod: ocasionally fetches nearby scrap and rarely; resources. Terrier mod: tracks and points out nearby resource nodes. K9 mod: bot is faster, strains less with more cargo, consumes less energy. Dragonfly Bot: is an air based, it has 3 tier 1 slots when it is deployed. Map mod: Dragonfly bot flies high overhead, providing UAV support. Seeker mod: Dragonfly bot automatically researches T1 research within range. Alert mod: Dragonfly bot detects and marks dangerous plants, including name and plant type. Both bots will have their own reserve slot when they are deployed. They will drop the resource tabs but not the mod being currently equipped when you collapse them to put it away in its slot. Both bots requires 1 Steel to print from the back pack. When the bot is printed, it will come with a station. When the bot is deployed, there will be a power line connected to the player's pack.

    Gateway mods

    Gateway mods I've made this post on reddit (idk about this forum). In thos post i briefly describe how the gateways could be used in a different way and to incentivice players to activate surface nodes aswell.

    Terrain Tool Mods

    Hey there Astroneers, I was wondering if it would be a good idea if there would be a Terrain Tool mod addet to make perfect 90 Degree walls to the floor or the roof. I could just stand on a wall trying to get it like that and that really freaks me out. Would be great if it gets addet
  9. New resource and advanced mods Since the groundwork update is coming up,(and since zinc doesn’t have a composite, (and since I want something f***ing useful)) I thought I would elaborate on my idea for new terrain tool mods. New resource: Brass Recipe: 1x Zinc and 1x Copper Use: for making advanced mods. The brass mods consist of upgraded versions of normal zinc mods, and other mods with new abilities Upgraded mods:(2,500 bytes each) Power Mod 2: More Power (2.5x normal) Wide Mod 2: Wider Circle (2.5x normal) Narrow Mod 2: Narrower circle (0.25x normal) Inhibitor Mod 2: attracts resources outside of the circle range Terrain Analyzer 2: can save 3 colors Alignment Mod 2: can save an angle to be used elsewhere Universal abilities/info They’re is a tooltip on each mod that can switch it to the original mode (excluding the terrain analyzer, and alignment Mod. the tooltips switch color and angle) The upgraded abilities consume more power, but in the original mode it is more efficient: 0.2U/s normal, 0.4U/s upgraded (haven’t checked, am assuming each mod uses 0.25U/s) New mods: 0.5U/s (5,000 bytes each) Reach Mod: increases your tool reach (1.5x) Soil Filter: can filter 3 different types of soil into canisters. These soils can increase the amount of resources gained at a soil Centrifuge per canister. *has no drill capabilities* Phase Mod: Has 2 modes: mode 1 doubles the range that the terrain tool can detect resources through soil. Mode 2 allows you to collect resources without having to actually dig the whole piece out, i.e. The circle just has to touch it. (The first mode consumes no power, but the second consumes twice the normal amount.) You can use all the brass mods on pavers and strength drills too! P.S Veronica, please don’t go back on adding new soil storage! Any dev please pass this on!
  10. Cant really show a picture as i cant really demostrate it
  11. Is your base getting expansive enough that your not always connected to oxygen? Do you think tethers will make your nice flat terrain look ugly? Worry no more! For I have the quick tutorial that will solve all your problems!(or at least fix the problems stated above...) Part 1: The Setup You will need: 1 Narrow Mod, 1 Wide Mod, 1 Alignment Mod, 1+ Soil Canister, Tethers(number will vary), and a Terrain Analyzer with the color of your choice(optional, but looks cool.) If you have not already flattened out your base, I recommend doing so using the Alignment Mod and your Flatten key. Part 2: The Digging/Placing Next, move to the platform closest to the area you want to oxygenate. Equip the Narrow Mod and the Alignment Mod, and dig a hole right up against the platform, about 1.5 Astroneers deep. Now, move into the are you wish to oxygenate, and dig another hole the same depth, but make sure it is within tether distance of the first hole. Continue digging holes until the area is sufficiently covered. Then, place a tether in each hole, right side up. Make sure that all of the tethers are connected to each other. If not, redig the holes in locations that will allow them to connect. Part 3: The Cover-up Equip the Wide Mod, the Alignment Mod, and the Terrain Analyzer(if applicable), flatten the holes over. If the holes are deep enough, the terrain you add won't mess up the tethers. Ta-da!!! Smooth Oxygenated Base!
  12. Hey, new player here. Managed to get the hang of this, really fun game. I would like to suggest making a toggle option for mods/augmentations so that they can be turned on and off without removing them. At some point, I have been putting and removing certain mods/augs that it became an annoyance. As an extension to this:adding a swapping functionality - so that objects can be swapped with objects in the backpack or generally in sockets. Great game! Really fun! Co-Op is amazing!
  13. Simple request, Give as a "true flat" mod for Terrain Tool so we can easily make mega structures as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLU0YEDvRKY This tool should be in constrast from the "alighnment mod" which only flatens relative to the core and not relative to a true flat plane
  14. I'm sure someone has brought this up but I'm gonna suggest it anyways sense i haven't heard anything about mod support for Windows and Xbox, I suggest a mod tab in-game for WIn and xbox in the main menu sense xbox and windows store apps cant be modded there's no way for either version to use mods there should official mod support that goes to console and windows players for that very reason, Nothing fancy probably just a button to enable/ disable mods on the left and right sides and something to detect mod compatibility for instabilities issues encase it breaks a save or something, Any confirmation on this would be appreciated ^.^

    Mods

    I think a modding tool should be added, by using a pc program you can program mods, you can post them on a page on a website, and on console, you can find some in the menu, sort of like fallout 4.
  16. Hello, You can build a perfect dome around your base because there's an invisible shape around your habitat that protects it from being digged under. I was thinking: this "feature" could be turned into a gameplay element. For example you would have a "shape emiter" that you could turn on and off, place somewhere and then dig the shape around it that you want because it would repell the terrain modifier like the habitat does. What if you could configure the size and shape ? So you could maybe build mos eisly base by just building domes and then replacing the item, put it down and activate it on another place and then build another perfect dome. And if you want a pyramid, or a cube, you could configure the item to emit that shape as well. (whethere it would also create hardrock remains to be seen, I would advice against it because then you could end up turning your whole planet into hardrock).
  17. I bought astroneer back in early 2016 on xbo, enjoyed the game and it was relatively stable besides a couple small bugs. Returning in 2018, this game is an absolute train wreck. The bugs are game-breaking and ruin the entire experience of the game. Placing things at the base is way more difficult than it should be, often they won’t snap into place until I fool around moving a resource/object around for way too long. Backpack more often than not won’t allow me to move things in and out, craft, or add/remove mods from resource collector and backpack. This makes the game completely unplayable and incredibly frustrating to attempt to do so. Don’t release big updates when you haven’t play-tested them. This ruins the game completely. Just because it’s an “alpha” or “beta” doesn’t make it okay over 2 years into the game to let stuff like this slide. Needs a fix immediately! Again... CANT SELECT ANYTHING IN BACKPACK, REMOVE/ADD MODS, CRAFT, UNLESS IN CERTAIN AREAS... SEEMS TO BE RANDOM. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. PLAYING ON XBO.

    Suit Mods

    Soon I know weather is going to be a thing and I was wondering one day some planets could have extreme temperatures. So, our suits could have an add on in order to regulate suit temperature by using the suit battery as a resource. This add on being heating coils and liquid cooling could be placed on the left shoulder as a visual of which add on you are using.
  19. So, some people enjoy sandbox games as they are, where they can be creative and create their own challenges and not really needing challenges be presented to them. Other people, like me, do prefer there to be challenges in game. And I know you guys are planning on adding those challenges. But, you can only do so much, and there are lots of people out there with lots of great ideas who could help. And to make it clear, I'm not talking about mods. I'm talking about having an in-game option for users to create challenges, or puzzles, whatever you want to call them, and making it very easy to share them.

    Alignment Mod Problems

    Now i absolutely love the idea of mods in game but the alignment mod is one that is special to me. i love what it can do but the amount of hassle it takes to use it is really annoying. i cant clip properly on the ceilings to create a perfect flat to go with the walls and the floor. i would like to snap a picture of this but i don't have a screen capture tool for me to get a image of this. The circle that makes up the terrain tool that we use all the time gets stretched and warped on the ceiling and cant be used. i really hope this gets fixed soon because this tool has amazing potential for great use.
  21. Satellites Satellites allow you to collect solar power from space, collect data (Research / Bytes), and make a Network. Command Module Allows you to connect with your satellite (Network connection needed) Networks Allows transfer of items and data from one connection to another. Can be wired or wireless. Crafting needs Power, Aluminum, Copper, Lithium, and/or Titanium. Uses 1 unit of power for every 4 wired items moved 1 length. One length is the max distance of tethers. Wireless requires Satellite. Different channels allow different things to be connected 2 or 4 channels / satellite. Mods Allow players to make mods in the game. Pretty self explanatory. Hosting System Era Official Server Hosting. 24/7 multiplayer servers allow for faster Research Acid Rain Must dig underground to survive. Sitting in a seat will still slowly kill the player. Backpack Storage (Small Storage) Takes up 2 Slots and gives 4 Slots of storage. Can be applied on a rover, platform, or backpack. Liquids Water on earth. Must drink water to survive. Water can all be found in ice, looking similar to the oxygen pellets in the ground. Food Find food in plants (where organic is), or make a farm. Must eat to survive. Aliens / NPCs Have Factions / NPCs that are like Players. They carry items, you can give/take (trading), have their own habitats, and you can kill them with weapons (once and if added to the game )
  22. I think that players should be able to make mods, just like in other popular games. For instance, maybe a mod like "Liquid Space" that basically adds liquids to the game... idk just a thought. It would publicize and progress the game really quickly. Thank you!
  23. Summary: 215 - Steam - Terrain tool mods not combining Description: When combing a boost mod with either a wide or narrow mod, only a certain configuration will work. It seems that the boost mod must be attached first for both the mods to work. If attached in the opposite order one mod will not function. Video - https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3lwJVcB_Am8eDZKMEhlTTJsNFE It just seems to be an issue between the boost mod, wide mod and narrow mod. I tested the other mods with no issues. Platform: Steam Version / Build Number: 215 Specifications: RAZER BLADE 2016 OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 | v. 1703 | Build 15063.674 CPU: Intel i7 6700HQ 2.6GHz GPU: Nvidia GeForce 1060 6GB RAM: 2x8GB SODIMM 2133MHz Drive: Samsung M.2 SSD 500GB

    What do Mods do??

    What do the mods do in the game? I still a little confused when I find a new Mod to create. A list of what mods do and description would be nice. System : Xbox one

    Terrain tool mods UI

    Wuddup folks. Sittin here not sleeping imagining a clever ui system for the terrain tool and future modifiers. Basically, the terrain tool becomes accessible via a hotkey, call it e. Press E, and the terrain tool flies into focus much like the backpack. From here, the tool contains a single 1snap mount that can be used to modify its actions. Perhaps also some basic parameters are available with simple mouse clicks here like brush size etc. Want the only "lazor" in the game? Better find that holy grail 1snap tool mod in the deepest alien research module on exotic... brush pattern, energy saver, "spraypaint" mode that builds and destructs in swiss cheese flavor, etc.... What gets interesting here is 2 things. 1. Maybe these snaps are a different size and are kept in a "toolbox" that attaches to your backpack or something so that these mods have only one purpose and other 1snaps are not going to fit on your astrovac (no bonus carrying capacity like a compound in your build slot) 2. OR perhaps other regular 1snaps ALSO act as modifiers.... this can be as simple as color eg; slap in some compound and you build in white. Or even further down the list of possibilities, it could get crazy. A lump of power in your gun creates terrain with luminescence. Hydrazine makes terrain with higher friction for efficient roadways. Organic spawns plants. Aluminum creates smooth terrain with blended voxels for very appealing "walls" and other structures. Maybe resin is clippable, becoming a physicsless "water"... Oh yea unrelated, but also cool would be a terrain tool mod that creates "permanent" structures. Probably does not add or subtract material, but simply floats over existing matter and glues it into uneditableness. Hopefully also with some voxel smoothing for ultimate in appealing structures.... Anyway, Obviously im getting way out into dreamland. The main point of my post is to offer a possible simple solution to what might otherwise be some challenging or time consuming code to further the "creative" agenda with the press e, insert different terrain tool idea... Thanks guys hope your new year is kicking ass
